    Judging by the promo pics of the Powered Greater (you can kinda barely see a Dia-Naut in the cockpit), it appears that it does come with at least one of these redesigned pilots.

    I am more hyped for the new nauts than I can logically justify to myself…a bit worried about the price since just adding the moving head on the female type was cited as an extra cost and these look ridiculously decked out for the size. But yeah- looks oh so good!

    There we go, they were bound to start filtering into the line sooner or later.

    That just leaves 82 then, expecting a ripper repaint, which would be fine as the pale grey looked a bit meh on the one that's coming.

    Man! We could actually get a 5 pack of these now. I strongly prefer unique solid color suits. And I really want this set.

    Am I the only one that would like some diversity with the dianauts?

    Thinking the Powered Greater may actually have it's own robot mode yet, There's some really big thick joints in the back of the feet that I can't see used in any of the pictures we've seen.
    Given how long those platform shoe feet are the back portion could easily be a lower leg, rotating up at the round part at the peak of the foot with that grey part swinging out to be the upper leg.

    Here you can see how there's a part flat against the floor inside the big blue panel with the rectangular hole in it.

    I’ll second that! (I kind of prefer visors on for that reason.)

    Yeah, just 5 figures, without a bike would be a new offering, so price is a big unknown. I'm really excited too, though. Just to have more variety in the suits walking around will be great for photos. I really hope the heads do turn. So many photos have been difficult to stage without that

    I agree, that the all red suit looks awesome and it would be nice for them to recreate that team from all the old promo art.

    No, you are not alone. That would really be good for them to do, especially if we are getting more figures with revealed faces/heads.

    I was thinking last night that there was a lot of bulk there, too. Buy, I'm not certain how some of that leg exo-armor (which looks like it will give hip and knee support for the weight) will come together. Not impossible to happen, though... If they give it a mecha mode, then I see the price possibly popping up into the $150 US range...

    I'm hoping the parts are more versatile and can work well with other toys, too. I was a bit disappointed that V-Max's head wasn't swappable with cores, like the smaller Vers mecha.

    From what I can tell, it looks like these golden claw things are attached to that grey joint...

    I'd be willing to wager those are the additional limbs required to GATTAI with other figures (diabattles? buffalo? longer legs for some trivers?)

    I'll be pleasantly surprised if those two units actually combine to be some sort of stand-alone mech :D  more value rather than just being addons for the Convoy!

    EDIT: It just occured to me that it may actually be intended to be use in conjunction with the new Big-Powered too, like one of the medium-sized combined ones? Giving them proper legs/arms and such:

    Colorschemes aside, it makes more sense if there's a shadow version coming.

    It'd be nice, but I'm not surprised it hasn't really happened considering Diaclone is still mostly aimed at a Japanese market. Still, it'd be nice to see.

    that’s why I’m glad they have been mainly doing helmeted Dianauts lately because they can be anything you want. The earlier ones all looked white or light skinned.

    I think squads sharing the same armor colors would be cool, but with them being militaristic, they can't all be "special snowflakes".
    I do like keeping like colors together, and then the unhelmeted or unique ones could be the "heroes".

    If you're talking about these:

    upload_2021-9-2_12-59-40.png

    I think these are just vestigal parts hanging off the hips.

    upload_2021-9-2_13-0-57.png

    The grey hub is really only there to connect with the front wheel of the bottom half of Battle Convoy as above.

    What's really going on is that there a whole new waist piece that goes in betwene the top and bottom machines of battle convoy.

    upload_2021-9-2_13-4-54.png

    This is what the new crotch plate is connected to and the aforementioned vestigal wheel covers.
    The red lines indicate where these pieces connect on the figure as it is withouth the new armour.

    Those are just the kneepads folded down from the full armour mode.

    Oh yup you're right :D 
    Well, still unaccounted for then!
    Unless it is for combination with other units (like big powered), but I'd quite like a robot mode :)

    It's looking increasingly likley, it's got arms, a head, a waist and now what looks like legs.
    It just needs a means of tying them all togther and I guess that's what the backpack is for.

    upload_2021-9-2_13-39-26.png

    There's a bit of red showing through there where the two almost triangles are next to each other and that detail does not appear on the existing battle convoy and again, is not seen in any of the other picturers.

    There are two big flat black panels in the centre of the backpack that look like slding block joint channels.

    Actually I think I just found what the red bit is for, I think this is it here (ringed in red) holding the new bullet module.
    upload_2021-9-2_13-58-36.png

    The yellow ringed parts are also intersting, these are again not used in any of the pictures we've seen. and they can fold down from the looks of those hinges.

    Not sure if this is related to this, but a possible secret mode none the less. Someone on Twitter pointed this out...

    Does the ground vehicle's cockpit/bullet core have ears? Another head? Possible cockpit head for gerwalk mode, etc.
