    Thanks. They even give you electroplated gold pieces and prepainted teeth for him.

    (I'm having laser tag flashbacks)

    Edit: Also, that's an interesting way to make longer legs you have there.

    I understand Cantonese language in this video. According to the both reviewers, they where shocked that the red color doesn't matter Takara's previous release of the Diaclone Mecha figures. It puzzles them greatly that the red color is off by so much. It just seem a bit detracting in their opinions.

    I watched that a few days ago and it did seem that they were talking about the missing matched red. I think I hear them say, "lightning red" a few times. I just wasn't certain... it is really disappointing.

    It is very disappointing indeed. Even they question why Takara went that route with a different red. They said Red Lighting a few times is because they are trying to justified Takara is trying a different red with Red Lighting and it probably not suppose to match the Shadow line or with GV Destroyer etc.

    Takara tries too hard this time. Why not just give us the same paint?

    I can understand maybe not matching the "shadow" deco or the "destroyer" deco (thought the Dia Battles Red Lightning "red" does match the Big Powered Destroyer red chest plate and does match the red on the shoulders, just not metallic) but why not make them all match. Then there is DA-45 Dia Battles Red Lightning and DA-48 Cosmo Battles Red Lightning are both designated as "Red Lightning"... Why don't they match when they are supposed to be a complementary set? I share their confusion as to why Takara did this. For how much this thing costs they could at least try to get it in the ballpark. What we have here isn't even close... In natural lighting, it is orange/pink. I do wonder if this is an issue with cost cutting or switching factories due to covid or something. MP-47 Hound was a fiasco because they were trying an untested formulation of plastic that ended up with glass like fragility...

    I think I am going to break out the airbrush and attempt to add a few coats of clear red... after some tests of course.

    Not sure if there has been mention of this already but I saw this video which shows a Dianaut research team and what I think is a planned diaclone event (?). I could be wrong as I know no Japanese but those were what I believed to be the salient points to take from watching it... happy to be corrected. :)

    I hope Takara releases a sexy-g-i video soon showing his arm companion and Tri-hounder.

    I really want it...but I also preordered on 1999 and they don't do dhl or fedex (they said they would but they don't yet) so I'm pretty fucked until they decide to give me new options. I ain't sending it via surface parcel thats for damn sure.
