entirely different release: ダイアバトルス V2｜ダイアクロン オフィシャルサイト｜タカラトミー
it's the basic Hero/Sci-fi colors for TakaraTomy, they'll probably repaint the hell out of it like the Powered Suit
somewhat like Battle Convoy / Optimus always in Red/Blue colors
Some more pictures to share~
I like these, but why did Takara decide to release them the same month as MP Dinobot? I preordered, but may need to cancel if finances don’t line up. I really wish they would still be available a month afterward, but this stuff tends to sell out quick.
Ok folks. I really love these toys, as super fun toys.
I also like to display stuff and I like to have as much out on display at once. I hate having to put the accessories away.
So, what are your best display configs that have the LEAST amount of stuff to hide or put away?
I hope this makes sense - grammatically if not logically at least...
Short promotional video of the new suits here, not like the previous cgi clips though.
Edit: official page updated too
Interestingly they call these new raid chambers land types and say that they are used mainly for land transportation. This could mean the APC is on the horizon soon.
Look what arrived this morning!
And too bad amazon Japan is going back to not shipping to the US.. I’ll just get those new mechs on AE I guess
why isn't amazon japan shipping to the US?!?!?
welp, ordered 2 each of the new suits at NY, should be about 20 bucks cheaper than BBTS. Wondering when Bigbad is getting in their IMS Big Powereds, I had one box on dianauts with cycles for him come in yesterday, still waiting for the other box to process. Of course me saying this has invoked Murphy's Law and it'll show up tomorrow.
Did it ever? I usually use a proxy mail service in Japan...
Yeah. Up until recently they were doing direct shipping to US addresses for some items. I think it was a policy set by the manufacturer as to which items were eligible for Amazon Global Shipping. Last year a lot of TF Legends, Diaclone Reboot and Masterpiece figures could be ordered directly from Amazon.jp.
But it seems like TakTom has decided they don't want anything new shipped directly to international addresses by Amazon. I thought I saw something about this and some new MP releases, or maybe the TT PotP figures. Too bad, it was generally a nice savings over the US vendors.
In fact if you go to Amazon.jp right now and search for Diaclone, there's a checkbox for "International Shipping Eligible". Currently DA-12, DA-13, DA-14, DA-19, DA-20 and the collector's book can be purchased and shipped internationally. Still good prices on those for anyone who is looking.
I did a preorder for the IMS big powered from bbts, and still nothing so far. They've been good in the past but lately they've been taking a while on the Diaclone preorders. It seems Ive been getting them shipping as much as a week later than the other sellers. I figured it was just me though.
Cool I can ship the new suits with Dinobot. Nice!
Nice! Every time I see those yellowy/orange things on his shins... I can’t stop seeing a hand sticking up a middle finger (on the bottom near his feet on your photo)!
The new powered suits are up for pre-order at Kapow...
Not sure why I thought of it after all these years but Xyber 9 was a pretty short lived cartoon and I remember they had toys. Well lo and behold they had a line of vehicles roughly action fleet scaled. Too bad most of the line is so damn rare they command pretty hefty price tags.
Haven't had much luck find the other vehicles sadly.
This was range I'll see if I can't find better shots:
Tatiana's Air Striker
Heavy Roller Type 2
Never heard of those before. They look pretty cool.
I'm pretty certain it's whoever adds the listing to the site. It's probably as simple as a little checkbox they need to check to make it available for international shipping. Shiro and Hoshi check the box. Steve doesn't.
Rippersnapper, Blot, and Hun-Gurrr can be shipped to the US. Sinnertwin and Cutthroat cannot. All are sold by amazon japan. It's an error that no one over there can understand why it's happening.
However, in this particular case, it looks like they DID change them and make them available to the US...
Too bad amazon japan isn't taking anymore preorders for MP Dinobot, or I'd just redo the order with him and these mechs since they hit around the same time...
Oh God! I stared at the Dianuat too much and now I can't stop thinking he's in a Dianaut sized porta potty. Can't unsee!!
