    My Omega Supreme gets to me on Monday the 23rd! Can't wait! I never owned the original, so I'm very much looking forward to this.

    I love those molds, but I do hope they come out with new figures that scale better and are more faithful to the originals.

    The Diaclone Reboot figures are a bit too small, but then again, it makes the Transformers seem HUGE.

    I have a question, do any of the legend class figures fit in OS? Maybe Cybertron Bumblebee or anyone? Just curious and the wait for my OS from Pulse is killing me.

    I like Red Alert quite a lot also. Great in both modes. Same with Sideswipe. One of the things that I think Siege has done very well is the alt modes for the car bots.

    My guess would be a LEADER CLASS RODIMUS with the HOT ROD base and all the kibble to add on for the Space Winnebago and upgrade in size, ala UM. Not thrilled about this idea, but I'd still bite for it more that likely. Hoping to be wrong though.

    I was just watching the conversation, but I would like a cookie please kind sir!

    All this does is make me even happier that I ordered MF SAT 004 & 005 (3rd party Police SWAT Diaclones)

    A little food for thought, Masterpiece Robots and their 1.5 to 1.6” human partners; and Siege Robots and 1.18 to 1.2” Diaclone Pilots are comparable in size difference to one another, which is pretty darn cool.

    I think Micro Wars are the same height as Diaclone Pilots. I almost got those cool Micro partners guys but after some cost benefit analysis, some aesthetic comparisons, labor (I stink at building tiny things), and ALOT of robot scale math I settled on the Diaclone pilots. In the end it came down to aesthetic preference and labor, I think it’s a win either way you go.

    Yeah, there's just something...finished...about the Diaclone pilots that make them look great with Transformers, if not a tad bit too small.

    These are only the ones I have at work. The rest are with my Diaclone collection. I also don't do KO's, so these are the real deal.

    The canceled feet upgrade kit for Hoist and Trailbreaker comes to mind. It ended up becoming a Shapeways product.
