Diaclone Reboot Finally Adds Waruders So Your Mecha And Pilots Have Something To Do
ExVee - Thursday, April 05, 2018


We don't talk about Diaclone Reboot a lot despite its close relevance to Transformers, but today we're making an exception for an important development in the line. From listings on Amazon Japan, we have looks at the first two Waruder sets for the relaunched Diaclone line, providing an antagonistic force for the Dianauts and all their fighting machines. Waruders were the classic enemy in Diaclone, and the original Insecticon toys began their lives as specialized Waruder mecha. There's two new mecha coming up right now, click through to see pictures and find out about what they do.


The Waruder suits are shipping out in September and come in two styles: The DA-23 Flinger, and the DA-24 Stanger. Yes, Stanger, we checked. They're largely identical save for coloring and slightly different weapon attachments. They're the equivalent of the small powered suits for the Dianauts, but as the stock photos show, they go a lot further in what they can do.

The Waruders can split between a worm-like component (in which the pilot resides) and a body frame it can dock in to, making the basic form of either Waruder suit. But they don't just stop at that. Thanks to lots of pegs and ports, the Waruder suits, in multiples, can combine with each other to make bigger, weirder robots. Someone with a healthy imagination (and deep pockets) could surely make some magnificent monstrosities with a bunch of these sets.

They are priced comparably to the Diaclone Powered Suits, about ¥3500 for one suit with one pilot, so the strong temptation toward army building will be a sadly substantial investment. And for those out there that find the price points challenging already for such a wonderful looking toy line, well, I'd say the Waruders have declared all out war on your finances.
