    I just have one, but considering his engineering, the funniest thing i can think about is using extra leg parts to get a diatrain or a larger base mode. Except for that, it's a stand-alone piece, if you don't want to swap parts with the diabattles models.

    But i've found a way to get a mechagodzilla looking thing from the warudaros rapto-head. IMG_20201109_151614_519~2.jpg

    Please ignore the mess, i didn't sleep last night to finish a job and i dropped some ashes from my cigarette taking this picture, because i'm so tired my hands are shaking.

    P.S.
    The movie is a pathetic thing with zombie nazis on a snowy mountain. Poor choice to take a break.

    There's a dirty joke there somewhere, but I won't go blue.

    Anyway, SOooo METAL!

    I've been contemplating selling off a good chunk of my Diaclone toys, especially those that I've never even opened like the IMS and Destroyer Big Powered releases.

    Has IMS BP gone the way of the dinosaur? I was checking recently sold listings on eBay, and there's like... nothing.

    Sold listings don't go as far back as they used to. I know there was an IMS in July that I was outbid on, and it doesn't show up in the completed auction history

    I've been contemplating selling my body to old rich ladies in order to buy more diaclone. Then i remembered my body doesn't look THAT good, and i started thinking to rob a bank.

    Haha! I've been contemplating the same thing. :D 

    Or selling some organs.


    Not my organs, mind you.

    Well, selling someone else's organs is a lot more practical. If you're lucky you can do it even more than once. Otherwise...

    Selling mine would be a waste of time, between alcool, tobacco and weed i probably will have to pay to convince someone to take one of my organs:D 

    But it's a prerogative of all the artists, to have an unhealthy lifestyle...:cool:

    That's what they ALL say there, bub.
    :cool: 

    Anyway, lots of focus on the Soldiers (which I absolutely adore), but I am also still digging these:

    Hi folks, I still have a few small pieces left from my Diaclone selloff. They really serve me no purpose anymore, so hoping someone might want them at some attractive prices:

    • DA-12 and DA-13 Gyroceptor and Dartloader, $15 each for $25 for the pair: Both assembled, 100% complete with all parts, boxes, and instructions
    • DA-32 SkyJacket, $15: Assembled, 100% complete with all parts, instructions, and box
    • MFT KO Powered Suits, $5 each or all 4 for $15. OR, any two free if you buy DA12 and 13. Nothing broken, all complete.

    Can I ask what the situation is with KOs? I've bought a lot of stuff resale recently and while I don't suspect it to be KOs it would be good to know if there are any tell-tale signs other than just crappier plastic, particularly that can be identified on the box. I saw someone post a photo of a stamp on the barcode, is that an indicator?

    I thought that the only knock-offs were different brands like MFT, etc.? Are there ones out there pretending to be official Takara Tomy branded products?

    All the ones we’ve seen so far, the KOs come in clearly recognizable boxes as MFT knockoffs instead of legit Takara Diaclone.
