    The op tempo of Mars Base Rubicon has significantly increased since the arrival of Cloud Across.

    Different toyline, but Acrobat and Fighter colorways should really be done.

    I love my GRB, but versaulters are the real reason I got sucked into diaclone:

    As I have warned newbies and want to be newbies, don't get in. Admire from a safe distance. If you get in your bank account will be destroyed.

    I have spoken to Rob at TFS. Not email. Spoken. He is looking into it. As well as Garuda CM. Don't know if it will actually happen. TT is making things difficult. But, they are looking into it.

    Would love information about that skyline background (materials, construction, etc.) I think I might have asked before, but it's been a while since you've posted images of your base setup, so let me/us know (again?)

    I was mildly curious with Gamma and Tread, but after their successors arrived I also went all-in. And Gamma Chariot/Tread Airborne massively increased their appeal to me. Haven't even gotten hands on Gale or Horus and I'm eager to see what comes after!

    Well, I'm certain that one user/member would "win" if it were a competition. Something like 2-3 dozen DA-93, just as an example.

    I'm excited about the army building of Diaclone, but I'm inspired by the individual pics that users share showing their creations, bases, poses, dioramas, staged scenes, and customized DIY versions (GRB Plex, for example.)

    It would be irresponsible of me not to agree with this.

    While Diaclone CAN be enjoyed with individual, select sets, there is a compulsive urge to "collect them all" as well as extremes like army building. If you can without bankruptcy or irresponsibility, and you want to, dive as deep as you can manage and enjoy. And if you feel "complete" or "outgrown", it happens. Thankfully, Diaclone holds enough secondary market value that you can likely rehome them (and maybe get reimbursed?)

    Special redeployment from @HolyCulture:

    Finally getting around to looking at DA-95 and DA-100! Question: For those of you who have DA-95 ... there was a tiny screw that was just loose in the packaging. Was this the same for everyone or is there something wrong with mine?

    First I’ve heard of it. Is your copy new or used?

    Well, not with THAT outlook it isn't ;) 

    Also chiming in that I/we haven't heard any reports before. In addition to @Quippy 's question, if new, was it from the second run late last year? (If that's something you would know if new.)

    One of the dumbest things to geek out about - the way each adapter slots in and slides forward to lock into place. A minor detail, but it shows the thought put into these areas

    also, the adapters and pegs all store in the side panels

    Some older releases have extra parts that dont store anywhere - DA01, DA65 and if those were released today, there would surely be storage solutions

    Dont start this "monster", it will get crazy. I dont think some here will be able to handle the overload. Ive given tiny little glimpses, some small little "teases", and it was too much for some to handle, :p . There will be some blown minds that may never recover.

    If you set a firm stance that you’re not gonna get anything pre-DA95, you might be ok. New release Tactical Movers are around $70 and if you are patient you can take advantage of free shipping at The Chosen Prime; if you’re getting multiples overseas places might be ok too. This is in the range of S.H.Figuarts or Robot Damashii

    late tax on the older releases and shipping on large items like DA-95/100 is what kills you.

    thankfully it appears the Tactical Movers and Diaclone Vehicle Sets look like a focus going forward, and Garuda, Gale, and likely Horus Versaulters are amazing entry points.
