    I am buying WST combiner teams off of KO Toys and want to know if anyone can give me a review of Raiden. He's one of my favorite combiners but I want to know if the smallest version is any good.

    Edit: I totally meant Sixtrain; I am merely stupid.

    Yeah, every combiner has a KO WST. Some are good, some are very bad. I think it was Menasor that has some of Bruticus' limbs for no reason.

    No? It is named Sixtrain, but I thought that was just a side effect of lazy KO names.

    Just looked it up on TF wiki; never knew they were different characters.
    (Groan and facepalm)
    Oh well, question still stands though. Is KO WST Sixtrain any good? I love trains.

    I have that one. It's pretty much what you'd expect a small KO to be like...cheap plastic and small. the novelty wears off pretty quickly. I just have mine in combined mode on my desk at work next to a KO WST Fort Max and Liokaiser.

    The quality on the Raiden KO, incidentally, is fairly good. Stickers aren't great, and the plastic is somewhat brittle, but as long as it's handled carefully it's OK. Combines well, and looks good on display.

    the sixtrain one is fairly simple to tf, like firehawk says the novelty wears off pretty quick, if menasor came with all the stunticons i would say to go for him instead

    I know I want Superion and Devastator, cool combiners and I've heard they aren't bad. I think I'll pick up Sixtrain too if he stays together. So much fun to pose WST toys with unicron; I need a WST galvatron. If only the Chinese would make one.

    Do Reprolabels or anyone similar have a Raiden sticker sheet? If not are they good with requests? Never dealt with them before.

    They have plenty of Japanese G1 but don't have Raiden stickers yet. I'm in need of these as well. I have the originals but I don't want to use them.
