    I've been collecting for about a decade now and finally after 5 years of looking for these guys, I luckily found an almost complete set (and boxed!). Enjoy the pics!

    Here's a link to the album - Diaclone Raiden Repaint Album

    That is really sweet. The boxes are in good condition too. Raiden looked really impressive when he came out

    Thanks everyone!

    Fortress Prime: I had to scour Yahoo Auctions (Japan) in source these. With the US dollar going down the crapper, I paid an arm and a leg for these but at least the search is finally over. I saw them on Ebay once about 1 year ago and each one went between $250 - $300 i think. Other than that, i saw the complete set on tempting toys when they went to botcon i think but i didn't get a chance to inquire about them.

    ^Dude! Those all rock! :D 
    Im gonna get my first Raiden giftset soon...nothing compared to your awesome variant! ;) 

    Care to share the $$ damage? :lol 

    Edit: Just read your post above..
    Tbh, the prices paid are justifiable, man.
    Raiden's regular TF release is roughly $100+ to up about $200 as well.

    Saw some joker on Ebay who scalped the prices up to USD $500 for an individually packaged Trainbot! :eek: 
    madness...

    Congrats again..im envious but I can live! :lol

    I'm missing one piece of train track and 1-3 sticker sheets. Don't get me wrong, i'm definitely happy with what I got.

    I've seen repro Raiden Sticker Sheets on ebay. Does anyone know if they're the same as the original Diaclone or the repaints?

    Raiden in any form is awesome! I have the Transformers Version in the Giftset. One of my favorites.
