    Quite confused by the contents, there are three types of gun parts? Then it says arm X 2 so are the arms separate? :s

    -Boretto Core x1

    Does Diaclone stuff often go on sale? The Tridasher looks great, but I'd rather get it for closer to $60 than $90.

    Not really, most of it sells out within a year, a few of the smaller sets have gone on sale like the figure packs and powered suits.
    Or you could just wait for someone to sell it, I've seen plenty of Diaclone collections bring sold recently.

    Tri-Dasher is beautiful but I'm gonna have to do some soul searching about how extremely short those upper legs are (in terms of knee placement). Always makes action poses look awkward to me.

    Everything else hits that Diaclone sweet spot though and the hero colors are perfect.

    preorders live on NY!
    Nice to get something more "substantial" than the usual slew of endless powered suits!

    I have no idea about the arms, but in the below pic, it looks like (maybe) the guns are composed of three parts. I don't know why that would be the case, but maybe there is a good reason for that.

    Actually yeah they do look like separate pieces now you've pointed it out. Perhaps they're mixing the weapons and connectors together. The middle piece looks like it could be used in place of those adaptors that came with the gyro sceptor etc.

    Can anyone tell if "both" Dia-nauts (Male and Female) be present inside the robot at the same time? It kind of looks like only one Dia-naut can be inside the chest.

    They're including a bonus female Dianaut in the first run.

    oh i didn't see that. the listing i see just mentions one pilot.

    but still it's a bonus. do they normally include more pilots than there are spaces to put then in robots? i don't have any of the bigger stuff.

    Agreed on all points. Looks fantastic, but I just know the dwarf thighs will make posing this thing look awkward.

    I'm sticking with my Kapow order of 1, don't think I'll be doubling up with a Japanese cheepy this time.

    It varies, the first Diabattles had an extra one, big powered didn't come with anywhere near enough, battle buffalo had the correct number though.

    Nah. It's either the right amount, or more seats than dianauts to put them in. I feel like they may be trying to build interest in the female dianauts (or at least get them out there). Although, maybe they'll surprise us and have a way for the extra dianaut to pilot leftover pieces. (fingers crossed on that last bit.)

    PO'd with them, as of the current exchange rate, I got the tri-dasher and fem-nauts set for the price of what NA e-tailers are charging for the tri-dasher.

    Found this image again today and that was all the soul searching I needed, short thighs be damned:

    Can't wait for the jet and the next one.
