    Hi guys, gotten this version recently but I can't find enough information on the net for 'em so would appreciate if someone could share with me some additional details here. :D 

    Here's the picture:

    Thanks in advance! :thumb 

    Edit: Just found out that merging these guys into Raiden can be such a b#*tch!

    I need instructions! :cry :cry :cry

    While I'm no expert, be aware that there is a KO version of Raiden available (which I own and love) and this looks like the KO version.

    Secondly there should be two grey "wing" pieces that attach to the red connector piece above the blue shield.

    Yeah, I was trying to fish for more info on the internet but the closest reference that I could dig up was this:

    [​IMG]

    *Picture taken from fishthecat on eBay*

    If you'd noticed, I positioned my pieces so that they look identical to the said photo above which I can then use to compare & tell the difference. And I realised what I've was similar yet NOT the same thing as what was shown so now I'm kinda confused. :confused: :confused: :confused: 

    Yeah, I've got one of the grey wings only. :eek:  But then I got those green connectors on sprue, which wasn't being reflected in the above picture. Also, I didn't see these connectors being mentioned in Seller's auction either so I take it that these are not included.

    Nevertheless, I've gotten these connectors now. Did I get lucky or what? :p 

    jj, I guessed just as much, since there wasn't a single Takara imprint on the pieces. :lol 

    I'm just curious about who made these pieces. Hell, the joints are flimsy but the plastic quality sure feel solid & good. (at least for my choo choos) :thumb 

    Nah, gotten these cheap. Ok, maybe not that cheap if I factor in the freight charge. :eek:

    You just saved my life there, Sir! :bowdown: 

    Edit:

    Ok, Instruction Manual - Checked!

    Video review showing transforming sequence (In case I can't make out what's what on that Japanese Manual. :p ) - Checked!

    Now to look out for the missing grey wing. (On Raiden's right) :redface2:

    In all fairness, I must say that I'm impressed by the overall feel of these pieces. Plastic quality wasn't really that bad to begin with. (If you compare these with the recent Chinese Reissues, they are far more superior. :D )

    Would be good if the Trainbots came with their individual weapons.

    Edit: Now I'm really tempted to go get myself a set of C-131 Raiden. :lol
