    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.

    I will likely end up using the DA-88 backpack on V-max as it appears less bulky while offering the same functionality as the DA-85 Powered Greater backpack.

    So, with this set you can basically mix any diabattles/trivers limb with any powered suit/bullet core...

    Cool.

    But i think my next purchase after the red tridasher (coming next week), the new gigantor (coming next christmas), the new dianaut mold sets (coming next april/August) and the next Waruder suit (also coming next april) will be part of a diaclone reboot Dinobot line.

    I will already have to sell a kidney to pay for all this stuff, i kinda need the remaining one...

    P.s.

    If any of you need a spare kidney, i'm selling mine for $2500. I kept it brand new until 2018, then i used it a little to reduce the effects of all the alcohol, tobacco and weed i smoked in the past years.

    It's still working very well tho.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    I see now where the TTMall says both launchers are inculded but I don't see the "L" launcher utilized in any of the Powered Greater configurations they have pictured so far. Seems weird/wasteful to toss it in DA-85 when it already has a "T" launcher and then again in DA-88. Feels like it cheapens the value of of DA-88 if all you are getting is a new bullet core & some weapons. I mean, I will still prolly buy DA-88 but then I have a 3rd launcher just collecting dust.

    I didn’t think they mixed them… I just assumed Powered came with *both*. So I figured maybe DA-88s was a different color to maybe better match shadow’s limbs

    i felt the same way at first…. But it’s also the anchor to 88s fighter mode. It also ‘frees’ one up if you’re already using it to store Convoy’s extra parts

    Sooo, no one needs a spare kidney?

    What are you, My Little Pony collectors? The average Diaclone Reboot collectors should be out of kidneys from february 2018, and they should be grateful to have such an occasion... But you don't seem interested in mine.

    You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Buy my kidney if you want to call yourself a Diaclone collector.

    Please. I need money to pay for my Diaclone addiction. Buy it. I accept lower offers.

    I agree, but this one looks more like if he went Super Saiyan 2. I'm almost considering selling mine (i should still have the box in my basement) and use the money to help pay for this one... But i swore i wouldn't buy any more diaclone bots/dianaut sets unless they were red or they turned into beasts.

    But i'm not so much into the waruder mech designs, so i bought only the two gigantors, a rapto-head and the new waruder suit. I gladly avoided the rest, expecially the soldiers. Two headed dragons? Please.

    Guys, can you help me find some space themed playset that can serve as a base for diaclone troops? I need something that can be found at general retail stores, so very common brands/lines made for kids.

    The hexbug space stuff looks like it works well.

    On that note, some Japanese Twitter users have recently discovered that powered suits work well in Playmobil vehicles. o_O

    I was shopping around for something unrelated to Diaclone, ended up on TFSource as where I was sourcing from and wanted free shipping. So I went over to their Diaclone section and realized that they had Sunburst Dasher for 5$ more than my BBTS preorder that still has no sign of showing up. At least I can get that a little quicker, although it does now mean that I'll have two each of Dasher and Rambler before my Jetter and Digger show up.
