    In general no. The ones that came with flinger and stang (sting?) were pink and green I think.

    Haha, that's an interesting lot of stuff... be tempting if the shipping wasn't $359.99

    And then you wonder what's missing or damaged...

    Did anyone ever get a replacement cannon from Takara for their DA-71 Tri Jetter D Caliber? I know I wasn't the only one who got one that was bent and frankly it turned me off on the line for a few months and I'm just now considering coming back. If no replacements are available did anyone come up with a reliable or safe way to fix it?

    I have not heard that Takara was replacing these. I would imagine they would need to correct the mold and make a new batch of weapons to fix the issue. I got lucky and my curve was not noticeable without staring at it for 10 minutes. Lol.

    Hi Guys!

    I just got into Diaclone collecting (after some enlightening and hit/miss experience with the Transformers MPM series)

    So far I got:
    DA-01 (both original color and prototype)

    Diaclone Gridman Universe 01 (<-- first-ever Diaclone! i bought this coz i was a huge fan of the old SAMURAI SAIBER SQUAD series in the 90s haha)

    And then the other day I just got DA75+76 (and pre-ordered DA79 and DA80)

    I decided that I don't have the kidney to spare to be a completionist (probably gonna clear some of the TF that I don't want to make space) so I'm just gonna have to hunt down the good stuff, any tips for beginners like me in what NOT to get? eg due to QC or issues or something

    Needed a desk toy for work, so I bought the DA-06 Cosmo Maneuver Type chilling out at my local comic shop. It was pretty neat, so I went back and nabbed the couple of powered suits they had to go along with it and...

    My god....what have I done?

    Nice!!! I grabbed the Combat Chronicles, Flinger, and the Waldaros Solider 2 from those auctions. Someone made out pretty good with the Destroyer and the Gigantor. I'm jelly!
