    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 :p

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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)!

    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.

    C.L.O.D.

    Haven't had much luck find the other vehicles sadly.
    This was range I'll see if I can't find better shots:

    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...

    and... Ordered!

    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...
