1984 Kronoform "Attakon / Dai Attacker" Robot (Takara) *SOLD*
[RARE]
$255.00

(Sorry, out of stock...SOLD for $255.00) Vintage Kronoform "Attakon" Terminator Robot (Dai Attacker), by Takara. In the early 1980's, with Hasbro's "Transformers" line of robot toys soon to take off like wildfire in the US, the Takara toy company in Japan (who had licensed out many of their old Diaclone robots to Hasbro) must have decided to get a piece of the action directly by starting their "Kronoform" line in the States. Some were even called "Diakron" robots, harking back to their Diaclone origins. Basically put, these are "Pre-Transformers". Here is a beautiful boxed Attakon, the "Evil Robot Force Terminator", sold in Japan originally as the Diaclone "Dai Attacker", who transforms into a super-cool "Marauder Jet" and "Lunar Scavenger". In the USA, Takara attempted to develop a "good vs. evil" story line around the Kronoform characters, but it never went anywhere, as the Transformers and GoBots had taken too much of a marketing lead in the States. This short-lived Takara entry from a quarter-century ago is a very tough-get these days as they did not sell particularly well back in 1984 (without much of a TV show tie-in) and fewer still ended up in the hands of folks like yours truly, who has kept it unopened and stored, lo, these many years! Yep, that's right, it's MINT-CONDITION, UNPLAYED and UNOPENED!! Factory taped both sides!!! Absolutely C-10. This is a BEAUTIFUL robot, crafted of diecast metal and plastic...the only thing that keeps him from being sold for TWICE as much is that it doesn't say "Transformers" on the box. *Same time period* *Same manufacturer* A black sheep cousin of the Autobots and Decepticons. Once, just once, he'd like to be invited over for Thanksgiving dinner. Or even a cookout. Hmmm. Show "Attakon" that he is loved by clicking on that "Add to Cart" button right over there. Out of stock.
