    Can I just comment that it seems somewhat arbitrary that DA-39 has a similar colorscheme with the first Buffalo release, but the later repaint (DA-49) is a marine green rather than white? I mean the 2nd buffalo repaint (DA-37) was released in a glorious white, why not the Epsilon!


    ... or maybe it's just me envisioning the buffalos having skulls for their head :oops:  I have the DA-39, now hoping to get it in white moon colors.

    Looks like Hobby Japan is doing a second volume of Diaclone World Mook:
    Diaclone World Guide NEXT

    Does not seem to be listed on amazon.jp yet.

    There were two KOs exactly of this Diabattles, that are not from MFT. One is of better quality, than MFT and the second.. Actually, I don't really know.

    https://aliexpress.ru/item/32967976488.html - that first one. The second I saw on ebay a while ago, but won't find a link now.

    If you listen closely, you can hear thousands of little Dianaughts collectively poo themselves...

    There is a KO Diaclone thread that maybe helpful to you if you would like to know more about them.

    “It’s got spikes on top of its spikes! What the hell, man!”

    “yeah, screw this, they can have the damn freezeon.”

    (Unless I am misremembering, the generic energy source macguffin in original Diaclone fiction/catalogs was freezeon, and may have served as the inspiration for “energon” in transformers.)

    For anyone who was asking me about the figures I may sell (more people than anticipated), I am going to work on getting a list together with prices.

    I was hoping there would be two Bullet Cores as well, but it looks like it's just two heads according to info in the Amazon Japan listing for DA-69 (which is up now, btw, not sure if anyone posted that yet).

    Set contents:
    • Bullet Core (1)
    • Tridasher body A (1)
    • Tridasher body B (1)
    • Gun Parts A (2)
    • Gun Parts B (2)
    • Gun Parts C (2)
    • Sword (2)
    • Arm (2)
    • Mount Parts (4)
    • Visor Head (1)
    • Diaclone Member (1)
    • Brochure (1)
    • Instruction manual (1),

    Weird. After shipping it's the same price as BBTS before shipping.

    Edit: Actually, it's $116 shipped from Amazon Japan, while it's $125 without shipping from BBTS.
    Done deal.
