    What is the difference between them? I've seen the diaclone versions go cheaper than the takara versions. Is the quality the same and are colors the same? I'm looking to get one but wanted to know the differences before I drop some $$$. Thanks!!

    Diacloen Raiden was also made by Takara. You mean "the Headmasters version".

    Agreed. They're both personal grails.

    I almost broke off my liokaiser. I thought they connected like the other gestalts. I was in such a rush to combine him.

    I thought about the Diaclone version but the TF Raiden seemed like it was built better, with those extra pieces. But I thought the Diaclone came with train tracks. I've been meaning to pick some tracks at a hobby shop.

    I've also been hoping this one gets reissued. I don't know much about Liokaiser, but it looks pretty cool too.

    I like Liokaiser (and Road Caesar) the best out of the G1 combiners because most if not all of the pieces are incorporated into the robot and alt modes. Only a couple of Raiden's pieces fit onto them as robots or trains. I like using Yukikaze's side guns as wings on him in train mode, because they flew in the Headmasters show.

    Yea, I know. I almost broke my Liokaiser when he came in. I thought that he combined like the other gestalts. I was in such a rush to combine him.

    I'm going to stray off my topic now and ask how many G1 combiners are there? I won't include the micro masters. So far I can think of:

    Raiden; Liokaiser; Road Caesar; Piranacon/ God Neptune; Devastator; Bruticus; Predaking; Monstructor/ Dinoking; Abominus; Menasor; Computron; Defensor; Superion

    Am I missing any?
