    Hey all. Does anyone here know if there were any differences in the sticker sheets for the blue Ligier vs. the red Ligier, or were the sticker sheets identical?

    Thanks!

    I would think the same . Just the plastic would be different cause the box would be the same . I looked it up but no luck but they dont make a red mirage box just the color of the figure looks different unless the jouste one jould be different based on different boxes .

    One of my #whollygrail #diaclone #transformers police #sunstreaker from #japan . My review is a 10 over all of everything and I'll tell you y . He's got great style not only in box but outside he's a bad ass #lamborghini and in robot mode he's the best built and has lots of #firepower along with white cream under all the #chrome matches perfect with that rad #pilotdriver . Top on my list and thanks to @mrs.artfire for making this happen with all original parts. Launchers work along with that red face . Mom caught me snapping pics lol next to the falls taking these dangerous pics less then a inch next to the falls and wind blowing crazy glad to have rocks to keep things from blowing away and spending time with mom and kisses from #takara before leaving home for good luck #pugglesofinstagram ❤ also driving the new #shiro to visit . #80s #vintage #oldschool #momisthebest IMG_20200821_222942_453.jpg IMG_20200821_222942_450.jpg image0000001.jpg 20200821_174919.jpg 20200821_173117.jpg IMG_20200821_222942_453.jpg

    I gave up on G1 molds, but I desperately want that deco on a modern Streaker mold

    Got one of my Diaclone grails today. The original drill dasher. I have had the Transformers drill (on the right) since I mailed away for it as a child and he's always been a favorite. I always wanted one but when I found out that the drill bit was blunted reading the wiki after the recent Zetar figure came out, I decided I really really needed one of these. It's pretty amazing how after owning the Drill for 35 years it suddenly looks wrong compared to the original.

    If you don’t mind me asking what sizes where those boxes because I have been looking everywhere for them and I can’t seem to find the right size particularly the jazz one

    I never thought I'd own any Brizzi Joustra boxes. Now I'm up to three with these and Convoy.

    that art is soooooooooooo sick. did that originate with Joustra or was it repurposed from Japan?
    It kinda looks like Walter SImonson's style (I presume P.G. Brizzi is the artist?)

    They are French artists the Brizzi Bros, they did a lot of packaging for the Joustra releases of Diaclone product. I don't know heaps about them but they went on to direct an Asterix movie, which must be a pretty big deal in France! Their artwork is great. Maz has covered a lot of their TF work.
