    Raiden build is now complete. Now just need to paint. The individual bots also can be detached into their original bots. Paintjob to do now.

    I can't wait to see this painted along with the individual bots, but I am a little disappointed that they haven't been modded to resemble different trains (unless I'm missing something). But that would've been a much greater challenge as I think a fully actualized Raiden would be one of the toughest custom combiners to execute.

    ^ Agreed. Looking forward to the finished painted version. How is he for stability? I know those Rail Racer legs can be a little gimpy.....

    A great project! I've been itching to do Raiden also...Shame though that they are all identical from the looks of the picture. Maybe switch it up a bit and throw a G1 Astrotrain in the mix ;)

    I don't think those are RR legs. They look like Astrotrain in train mode.

    Hmm interesting, more alterations to the actual trains wouldn't be amiss though, Astrotrain as arms does look like it works, to turn them into goods engines shouldn't bee too hard, altering the cabin parts to be more squared and the feet to be more boxy might even allow a better combination point for the hands to attatch.

    kelvin, u know i love your work :) 

    you think one day, we'll see a picture of raiden, the dinobot combiner, menasor, predaking, defensor, superion, computron, devastator, and Dinoking, ALL TOGETHER??

    that would be an amazing sight!

    I am sooo itching to do a Raiden myself! I think I want to score a few different molds, like a G1 Astrotrain, and I have the RID Railracer bots, so theres three more. I may have some extra train parts left over from my Energon Omega Supreme, so I may be just about there!

    Back on topic, I love what you have there! I can't wait to see it painted up!:drool:

    I wish there was more articulation in the legs but other than that it looks sweet.

    I'd really like a look at this thing from the side and from behind. The whole middle area looks like parts, save you can see a sliver in the center of another train.
