    There have been three different books I’ve seen recently on amazon.jp that were not available for international orders until after they were released. So while I don’t know if this will be available I would expect it to be.

    Those are some really nice photos. :)  They gave me a bit of a Robocop vibe.
    I'm going to need someone to post a picture of the red one with a Dianaut walking up to the bike.

    I've got DA-54 in my PoL at BBTS. I'm probably going to wait for DA-58 and DA-61 to come in before shipping if I can manage.

    Freezon!

    Freon? You guys really shouldn't be drinking that stuff.

    No, Freezon!

    Klingon? You guys want a copy of the dictionary?

    No, Human! We are here for your Freezon!

    Levon? What do you want him for? he's a good boy.

    Human! Freezon! No more games!

    Duty-free shopping zone? If it's rum you want, we've got plenty of that.

    ...yes, we will accept this "rum".

    BRIIIIIIING MEEEEE
    Two soldier waruders
    I GOTTA HAVE
    One in each scheme

    LET'S ALL SET SAIL
    with Captain Morgan
    and his Diaclone Machines

    Dia-battles, yeah, we've got one
    these bugs are getting out of hand
    So bring me two solder waruders
    and say goodbye to your Freezon, man.

    ....

    I now have "Captain Morgan" and "Major Tom" as my headcanon Diaclone story protagonists.

    This is the best Waruder pic I've seen from a user on this site I believe. How are they floating in the background?

    I assume they're all attached on a single string, like a translucent fishing line

    Thanks, dude!

    They're floating in the background using Freezon-powered repulsors, of course!

    ++ You assume incorrectly, human ++

    :D 

    Okay, now for the real answer. They're on a clear stand, but I removed it in Photoshop. I took a photo of the whole group first, then removed the stand holding all of the Waruder Suits and took another photo. I had my camera on a tripod. Then I layered the two images together and got rid of the stand pieces.

    Here's the unaltered image:

    This concludes today’s episode of Behind The Scenes With Xaxis. :D

    Weirdly enough, I think it looks good with the stand visible. Almost looks like energy waves.

    Jealous... I've tried to mess around with Photoshop but it's just beyond my understanding and skill :/

    Cheers on the bad guy army. It looks like a solid collection!

    Photoshop can definitely take some time to learn. Happy to help you get started if you want to give it another shot at some point.

    The collection is growing quickly... Diaclone is definitely my new addiction! :D

    Just browsing the gallery on my phone and wanted to repost a few of my favorite pics.
    Can wait to add DA-56 and 59 hopefully this month.

    I've been meaning to snap a picture of my at-work forces. Thanks to @Sirtank for BP IMS Version. Now my office is contested territory instead of firmly in the hands of the Waruders!

    Bonus Pic:
    I was given the sign by a co-worker; I guess I left a specific impression on them. Might move the sign so it's in-between the two factions. Office Forces signed.jpg
