    How much do Mandarake shops usually charge for shipping if I am only getting 1 small thing? Like 1 tactical mover?

    It will depend on the shipping service you opt for; I shipped a versaulter to the uk last week for around 1400 yen via air mail, arrived in about 7-10 days, IIRC

    It said they need to calculate it manually.

    I’m stoked how busy the forum is. Even if I’m a bit behind.

    Got an email from my local shop a few days back… they have secured the replacement parts for DA-104 and will be notifying customers once arrived

    When I tested the above suggestion, I was presented with 4 options and rates for each for DA-58 at Nagoya. That also worked for each other item I clicked. If you order multiple items, that rate will definitely change because the size/weight of the parcel will be different than the individuals included.

    They need to be sure but they give a pretty accurate estimate:

    The original Powered Suits are definitely under appreciated.

    It varies by Mandarake location. Some have precalculated shipping, others do not. Each one operates independently.

    forgive my ignorance - what are D vehicle sets? Is that DA-103 for example?

    You could also consider the Garuda and Gale versaulters to be connected to the d vehicle line since:Garuda comes with one of the vehicles included with D-01, and Gales's bulles core can pull the containers.

    3D printed 3rd party weapons that you can find on Taobao … just a kind reminder that the thread rules prohibit posting of KO and 3rd party stuff… probably best to continue the discussion on the 1/60 or KO thread

    I think this is a valid sentiment - However, dropping a full $1,000 minimum on a product I'm so unsure about is literally never going to happen. If I knew someone who owned a copy, absolutely I would reconsider my preformed judgement... But I don't, sadly.

    As Quippy showed above, it’s a new subline whose first set just dropped this last week or so.

    Each set so far includes a new storage device, the Load Chamber and some combination of: a dianaut or two, a vehicle, and accessories. It appears to be a lower price entry point into Diaclone that will have integration with the smaller vehicles that have come with other larger releases as well as the other subline, Tactical Movers.

    I think we all expect this line to be a consistent stream of releases because they’re cheap and mostly re-use molds

    the Load Chamber is, in my view, the “fourth” generation” of storage devices:

    1- Riot Chambers which came with the first Powered Suits. These have almost no support among modern releases and could only hold Powered Suits

    2- Riot Chamber Land Type, which came with the evolution of Powered Suits - Maneuver series

    3- Fort Chamber, which came with the Tactical Carrier and primarily hold Tactical Movers and their accessories, but can hold other stuff with adapters

    4- Load Chamber, which holds all generations of Powered Suits, including V-movers, plus the smaller vehicles. They have a bunch of configurations to connect to all sorts of stuff which were all still discovering. Future bigger releases and Tactical Movers will likely have some play pattern crossover, like the Gale, which can attach to them.


    Four D Vehicle sets have hene shown, as seen above. Only set 2 doesn’t include vehicles, it’s just a double pack of Load Chambers and bits.

    They are likely the easiest Diaclone stuff to find now, other than the straight accessories packs.

    So I've seen a few photos now with those tactical carrier chambers attached to Cloud Across - and I'm wondering, was this an intentional design feature? I don't think it's in any of the marketing photos?

    I have DA-100, but none of the chambers to test with.

    Do they fit properly? Are they connected in a meaningful way? Or are they just kinda wedged in there? XD

    All the posts I've seen say they are just wedged in and not "swooshable".

    Minor correction: the standalone DiaTrain comes with decals and the other one doesn't.
