    Thanks! I haven’t ordered from them, so I wasn’t sure who used the term “stash”. At first I thought it said “stack” and I got excited but then read it again and :(

    Ahahaha, I was cheeky and made an offer thinking they'd never go for it and then they actually did! Were you after anything in particular from it or just after cheap extra bits like I was?

    I’m not 100% sure I’m feeling the Value of DA-88 at the moment…. Maybe the product page and showing integration with Shadow Convoy would help.

    I feel that’s the main unsung purpose is to give us a color matched L-bracket store his bullet fighters and arms

    Got my last shipment via UPS from TF Source a few minutes ago.. Pod Granders, Battles Gridman, and DA-73 troop packs.
    :D 

    Still haven't seen the others they were expecting in September... Guess tomorrow tons of preorders with they and BBTS will be pushed out another month.
    o_O 

    USPS just announced rate hikes in US and an additional week delay on top of prior announced delays... Sure other shipping companies will follow suit.
    :(

    AWESOME
    but now I'm contemplating to skip the weapon pack, and go for two WarudaLegion.

    From TTMall listing of DA-85 ダイアクロン DA-85 パワードグレイター
    it seems that the Drone Sword is included, which is the below text

    武器A(1)、武器B(1)

    The C weapon has 4, which I guess is the leg guns

    There is also TF Source, Ages 3 & Up, and The Chosen Prime as additional options at least in US/North America. It doesn't look like any of them have listed these 3 yet...

    Yes I think it looks like both DA-85 and DA-88 come with identical drone swords.

    I wonder if the 5th figure under Diaclone 40th anniversary will have anything to do with MPG / Masterpiece Gattai...

    Do we have any upcoming toy-related festival? WonFes? HK? CN? NYCC?

    My guess is we’re gonna see an “all in” set with a Powered Convoy (probably the blue delts Magnus colors) to match the blue triverse guys.

    they’ll skip the Pod Granduer and do the powdered and DA-88 set as one go

    Yeah, that would be nice too, since the 1st release commemorating Waruder, and
    the 5th closes it nicely with Powered Convoy set (D-Caliber?)

    I don’t see why it would, Diaclone and Masterpiece Transformers (including sublines like MPG) are two very distinctly separate toy lines.

    and then we have that crossover with Gridman, out of the blue :D 
    but yeah, the possibility that MPG is MP Raiden just gives me a bit more hope

    them ‘surprising’ us with MP Raider would me me sad as a Reboot fan…. It wouldn’t match the series at all (unless they did a special update- which I doubt).

    A build king (Devy) with reboot design would be interesting (but again I doubt it).

    On one hand “YAY more drone weapons!!!!” On the other…. Missed opportunity for an axe or something interesting. I would have guessed it’d been a different color though

    Not that we really need pics to know how it works but TT accidently mixed pics of the DA-88 connection module on DA-85's product page here.
