D.I.A. Commander is a fictional character and third-party Transformer homage to the Diaclone Powered Convoy made by FansProject in 2009.

FansProject

The D.I.A. Commander armor is a third-party Transformer accessory created by FansProject and released exclusively in Japan. He is an homage to the Diaclone Powered Convoy toy, although he is colored differently from Powered Commander, who is a more expensive convention exclusive.

In his fiction D.I.A. Commander was created on Cybertron after the departure of the Ark as part of the Defense Intelligence Agency Clone program.
