Incredible find!  Takara Diaclone was the Japanese predecessor to the popular G1 Transformers line.  The chronology was well documented in the beloved Transformers episode in Netflix’: The Toys That Made Us.  Advanced collectors are well aware of this one!  We are proud to present the No. 7 Fairlady Z, blue in color, the basis for Bluestreak.  According to TFSCRAPS website, “The Diaclones had spring loaded launchers that fired their missiles a reasonable distance, and a small pilot for added play value.  The Diaclone-only Fairlady Z decos are extremely rare, highly sought after, and very expensive.”  Our example has been graded by the hobby’s leading grading service, AFA, utilizing their current three tier grading system that includes subgrades: it earned an impressive overall 85 grade including a 85 assigned to each of the three subgrades.  AFA has graded a grand total of two No. 7 Fairlady Z, and our offering is the highest graded example in existence.  This is a true “pop 1” with no others graded higher or equivalent, and we are pleased to present it to our global audience.
