''Micro-Commando Diatron-5'', better known as ''Space Transformers'', is a [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs perplexingly insane]] and [[OffModel incredibly low-quality]] pseudoanime straight from South Korea. The plot focuses around a {{Cyborg}} woman named Ivy, who defends the entire universe from enemies with her built-in evil-sensing computers. The enemy infects her with a virus. Now the only one to save her is Diatron 5, a HumongousMecha shrunk down to microscopic size that goes in to fight the bacteria. Two kids, a battle station called the "Franchise/StarWars" and Diatron's inventor join her in the battle against evil. Evil being an androgynous woman named Mary, her brother with blue skin who looks suspiciously like [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Spock]] and their fleet of robots and forest green demon-like aliens.

It was [[DuelingDubs dubbed twice]]; first with an American-sounding cast under the name Micro-Commando Diatron-5, which can be viewed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYJUfjsSiBY here]], and later on under the name Space Transformers with a British sounding cast (some being from Space Thunder Kids as well), released by infamous producer [[Film/GodfreyHoNinjaMovies Joseph Lai]], that can be downloaded [[http://www.archive.org/details/SpaceTransformer here.]]

* TheMockbuster: To their credit, the plot is fairly original (if insane), but almost everything else was ripped off from something else. Interestingly, it does ''not'' rip off ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', at least not directly. The "Diatron 5" is actually Battle Buffalo, a robot from Takara's ''Diaclone'' toyline, which was also the source of about half the cast of G1, including Optimus, but Buffalo itself was never imported under the TF brand. Ironically, this film is probably the only reason anybody remembers it.

* FantasticVoyagePlot: Perhaps the only one to involve a giant robot, and once inside Ivy's body, nothing at all even remotely resembles a normal human-body's insides. It's not even like OsmosisJones where the white blood cells are people, there's just a whole complete Earth with human kingdoms inside her galaxy!

* BattleOfTheStillFrames: There's a beautifully crappy example of this (sans the battle) torwards the end. A good 1 minute sequence of nothing but a handful of completely still frames of the titular mecha panning around the screen to make it look like it's flying in space, to the tune of a visibly improvised and trippy BGM track. There were absolutely no attempts to make the backgrounds loop evenly or even sync properly with the robot, at one point it just pans through a completely still robot + BG image, and in other, ''Diatron-5 starts inexplicably flying backwards''.

** There are also SD-ish, RobotBuddy sized facsimiles of [[Anime/GingaHyouryuuVifam Vifam]] and a [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms Scopedog]]. They didn't even bother to rename the former, and he's actually called Vifam in this.
** Also a bunch of character designs were lifted straight from ''Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon'', with minimal changes, like Cosmo's lookalike losing the afro and the general OffModel-ness.
