    I'm fighting the impulse to order 10 of these sets because I know that there will be at least 4 different sets (if not more) based on the PS, MS, V-Mov, and TM series.

    I've grown fond of the Raid Chamber and Fort Chamber designs and the Load Chamber absolutely scratches that same itch. Any bets regarding DA-102/-29/-37 integration? Barring an adapter(?), no TC/Battle Buffalo mounting. It looks like the base and the rail on the top are interconnected to enable stacking. (Thanks @Xaxis !)

    I have approx 30-ish Raid Chamber and their contents, so adding Load Chambers to the diorama will be exciting.

    Getting in on the ground floor at preorder pricing is even more exciting!

    Well, this gives us a look at the Load Chamber’s bottom. No peg holes, but they could make a baseplate attachment for Buffalo that would put an attachment rail on it.

    Connect the roof joint and the groove at the bottom of the chamber core




    So very much exciting!!


    Right??!!

    Remember, 10 of these at pre-order prices is the price of a Gran Dion. :D

    I really hope they do a V expansion set with empty containers. V-Movers no longer need to be homeless. A rigid block of vertical storage is my jam. Bummer there's no D-Buffalo support?

    We have to figure out a good use for lots of the little side armor brackets that come with it. Maybe ground-based autonomous weapons platform?

    The Diaclone Tactical Mover Argo Versaulter <Voyager Unit> may be at home in water, but the pilot needs to be, too...

    Although designed for water, the Diaclone Tactical Mover Argo Versaulter <Voyager Unit> is not to be ignored on land.

    they are getting there. We need a version which opens on the sides, plus expansion packs with weapons and construction tools. It's going to be the expensive child of TC and DA-19

    V mover and 1st generation storage effectively merge Tactical Mover and Diaclone, as DA-101 comes without raid hangars.

    4 of those can probably attach to Calibuffalo's legs, turned 90 degrees though...

    Edit: meanwhile, DA-98 is a bit less interesting today

    The TM-XX designation may be on retailer's order form, the same set of number reference can be seen on many retailer site.

    Speaking of connection between DA and TM, DA-91 comes with a lifting platform truck which is also included in the TM Carrier Expansion Set.

    Several of us on here adopted giving them those designation numbers before the retailers did... So, probably not, but who knows.

    BTW - I've adopted DV-01 for the first of the <D> Vehicles series...

    My take is that, while Triverse was a temporary sub-branding, they are looking at how to integrate Tactical Mover and Diaclone under a single brand.

    Sky Base as spiritual successor to Sky Garry and follow-up to RB G-X? Time may tell...

    Weren't the Combat Chronicles, E-Hobby PS A/B color swaps, and Asia Desert Battle A/C all lacking DA- designations? Because that's what their packaging says.

    The early stuff? Totally understandable if numbering the releases was the last thing in the designer's mind :D 
    but there are one recent ones, 2021 Pod Extender, it's not even under the product page & put under news :D 

    IMHO numbering the releases only fuels those that (tries to) "complete" the line, personally couldn't be bothered LOL
