Tiger Track C-90 – Figure King Exclusive Reissue, Takara 2002

One of the original Diaclone releases, Tiger Track was rumored to have been slated for the original 1984 G1 lineup of Transformers, possibly instead of his more well-known red counterpart. To get this guy, you had to order mail-away from the Figure King magazine #60 in Japan in Dec of 2002.  To tell the truth, I kinda like him more than Swipe.

Nice retro mail-away exclusive styled box design

Love the yellow trigger on the launcher. This colorway really pops.

The Countach. A dream car with a classic design.

Interesting that they tampographed the decals for the lights, but fixed the original Diaclone “Rallye” spelling to “Rally”.

Lamborghini Countach LP500S ass

Rubsign on the undercarriage?

This figure deserves its pricetag.

I don’t feel the need to add a faction logo. Keepin’ it Diaclone!
