The Diaclone toyline was first introduced in 1980, but it was not until March 1982 that toys with alt modes based on realistic, present-day vehicles began to appear as part of the Car Robots sub-line.
In 1983, Hasbro representatives discovered Diaclone and Microchange toys at the Tokyo Toy Show, and soon struck a deal to create the Transformers brand.
- Designs from Diaclone were ripped off for the Korean animated movie Diatron 5 (다이아트론5), which is currently haunting Walmart dollar bins as Space Transformers.
