    I talked to Shadow about it and he said if we can get enough votes, it may be put in the pipeline. So, think TFW can start a petition like the Scourge one?

    First, I want them to make Leader Blackout and Leader Bonecrusher, along with three more Bumblebees, at least two of them Voyagers.

    Who's Shadow? And you're talking about combining Cyberverse trains?

    Shadow2789?

    Six deluxe-class Cyberverse-scale trains. I told Shadow that I'd find six unique locomotives myself if this even had a snowball's chance of it happening.

    I'm happy with my original, no thanks.

    Hey, I'm not dissing the original (it's my favorite train gestalt for not using just shinkansen and other high-speed locomotives.

    If it weren't for the fact that I don't know if I can get to BotCon 2012 unless it's in the nearest Big City relative to where I live (Atlanta), I wouldn't be doing this. If you'd like, I'll post what locomotive ideas I had.

    okay this shit has gotten out of hand, No disprespect to Shadow, but he knows everything, i'm waiting till we see proof, this whole concept is rediculous

    it would be awesome, but really there is practically no chance of it happening

    Actually you're correct. He said that without fandom support, it won't. So, if we make a petition, it may happen.

    If BotCon goes to Atlanta, I'll simply give them my idea in person.

    Oh MAN. I love Cyberverse, and little, combining Cyberverse trains would be great. Also, perhaps some other combiners could be put in the pipeline for Cyberverse? I'd love it if the line expanded further into G1. I love my 3 Legends G1 figures!

    So, if I start a petition for Cyberverse Raiden (which is needed, according to Shadow, if we're to get one) you're in?

    fact of a matter is a petition will never work, there would not be enough fandom support.

    Shadow has stated like almost a whole years worth of product, and until we see further proof i am remain skeptical

    I'll let other decide, but if this fails, you can say 'I told you so'

    if its classics styling count me in. If it's gonna look like movieverse, forget it.

    You realize that the fandom only makes 8-9% of people buying Hasbro TFs.

    It'd be classics or Prime, NOT movieverse.

    Yes I know. Still, a dream of mine would be getting a Train gestalt that didn't entirely consist of high-speed engines and steamers. There is much more than that that also looks cool.

    Honestly, here is my idea for a Cyberverse Raiden, one that I think might be a reasonable possibility.

    - Ark playset scale pricepoint.
    - Main "engine" plus 2-3 carriages
    - The engine and carriages open out into individual battle bases, or link up in different configurations for different larger battle station modes.
    - Each carriage should be able to store a Legion class toy in train mode.
    - Maybe throw in a flatbed carriage or two for ramps / bridges on the city mode.
    - The engine transforms into the body & arms of a large robot mode. Two of the carriages form legs, the remaining one (depending on how it is worked) either forms the lower torso or splits to form the arms.


    Essentially, you preserve the concept of a combiner, along with the giant robot mode. You load the thing with playability and features. You have to sacrifice the combiner angle of it - but instead, you gain a new Citybot.

    Most important for Hasbro, it'd be a very kid friendly toy, an easy sell since they could bill it as a bunch of playsets in one box.

    Just for some clarification, if this were to happen, these is what I would choose for the limbs/torso;
    PRR P5 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Arm
    Rhaetian Railway Ge 6/6 I - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Upper Torso
    JNR Class DE10 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Lower Torso
    EMD FP9 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Leg
    British Rail Class 55 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia or British Rail Class 23 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia as a Leg
    DB Class V 200 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Arm

    The Leg locomotives would be able to swap, same with the arms (like PCC drones).

    Yes, the last one looks like a VW Microbus, couldn't find a good German Locomotive of similar size to the rest.

    I honestly didn't think of that. You'd have a full freight train set. But I was thinking of having the locomotives turn into individual robots as well.
