    This is a Poll I'm creating in hopes of some 3rd Party Company out there seeing it to perhaps finally give us the Gestalt who really needs to be made: Radien.

    Through most of my life I've loved Trains be it models or staring at the real thing at railroad crossings.

    Raiden was always one of those that I felt needed a much much better and more realistic interpretation made. and to me the Masterpiece Style and size would be simply amazing. But, why are people afraid to touch it. Is he really that obscure and unpopular?

    anyway How bad do you want somebody to make Raiden? and would you be willing to spend cash on such a monumental undertaking of a combiner Team?

    You do realize that the present MP style might result in a very unrealistic interpretation? :p 

    It would be cool though (it they detailed it to be real). I'm completely unfamiliar with the character, actually.

    *banging fists on table* Raiden! Raiden! Raiden! Raiden!

    Rail Racer was great and I'm a sucker for train robots in general. In Master/Chugsterpiece, he could be pretty slick.

    Well Astrotrain is a perfect example of a trainbot, he was done in various sizes by 3p companies, so it's possible. :) 

    now making 6 Trainbots that not only have train alt modes, but bot modes and combining modes, I think it's most certainly possible. with TW Constructor, FT Terminus Giganticus, and FT Phoenix being the largest 3p Transforming toys ever made, wouldn't you love to see an MP team of these guys? Do you think the engineering would be overly complex?

    I'm unfamiliar with the character, but more trains would always be great.
    But in terms of train combiners, I'd much rather prefer an RID Rail Racer. (Actually, more 3P RID stuff would be fantastic...)

    I figured Make-Toys could possibly be a decent candidate to tackle it with the success of their MP styled Headmasters and Target Master.

    I would love an MP-scaled Raiden so, so much. TFC will probably make one and it'll probably fall short of the mark, so bring me a WAR! :)

    If there was a combiner that I would vote as : Tottally indifferent, probably this and Road Ceasar would take the cake.

    I personally wouldnt buy it, unless it was superbly made and there was absolutely nothing else to buy at that time.

    But if people want it, I cant see why not? I mean peoples tastes are different and all that. So heres to hopping for you guys that wish for a Raiden!

    I don't know much about him, aside from him being made of trains. Since trains are a series of boxes, I really don't think a 3P would have a problem designing or making him. I think the question would really be why? He'd probably be one of the last guys to make. With all those trains and combination plus the relative obscurity and indifference people have towards some of the Japanese stuff, I don't see Raiden getting made before the rest of the Headmasters, or heck, even before Deszaras and the rest of the main Victory crew.

    Ever since Maketoys and Fansproject announced Green Giant and Intimidator, I've been wanting one of them to make a Raiden for years. They seemed to have moved on from combiners now, so that leaves TFC, MMC or even ToyWorld if they still do non-MP combiners. I'd prefer him to be in the Generations/Classics scale too.

    If the Raiden Wars ever break out, I'd love to see someone repaint their Raiden into some of the Liner combiners from Brave so that we could have even more trainbots.

    Strikes me as kind of a boring figure, like they ran out of ideas for vehicles to disguise. No attachment to it either, since I only watched the original G1 cartoon and movie. But cool if it gets made for those who want it.

    not saying that all combiner teams have super fun alt-modes, but the train thing was always kinda "meh" to me.

    That said, if the individual/combined robots are super awesome, I'd certainly be interested. Can never have too many good combiner projects.

    I voted CW scale, but by that I mean CW Devastator sized. I REALLY want the two Diaclone combiners to be massive

    I have that 3 train team, Rail Racer, I think was combined name? They looked horrible in bot mode but we are 20 years more advanced though. I immediately though of them and feel like the individual bots will look horrible, but the couple of 3p Astrotrains we have look pretty good.

    Has to be in scale with Gravity Builder and the other 15" combiners for me.
