Grandstand Convertors were only produced in the UK in 1981. The Grandstand Convertors that are Diaclone based, are fully licensed by Takara and were put out by Hales Ltd. The toys are exactly the same with Takara markings. Other Japanese transforming toys were produced in this line. Strangely though they are packaged with the rubber tipped protected missiles which originated from Italy. Though there are slots for the the Diaclone drivers, the box was empty but showing slots for them.

    This is Alphatron , or as we know him Gatsblocker or Multiforce 14. The piece is fully licensed and comes in the same styrofoam set, just a new box as usual. Unsure if any drivers came with the set.
