    Series I, II, and IV (Protectobots, Constructicons & Aerialbots) instructions include how to assemble the spare combiner parts into a jet, but the Series III Railbots instructions do not. Can the Railbots spare combiner parts form a jet?

    I think the parts are supposed to be used along with the six Railbots to make a complete train, but I have no idea how to do it.

    The parts don't make them form a *complete* train, but they can link on to others as weapon-cars and such.

    I'd like to know why Slingshot didn't make an appearance with the Micromaster Arielbots? Storm Jet???

    No. However, they can do this:

    My biggest question is why all the MM combiners needed the back piece? I hean, how much does that suck for that guy?

    "I'm sorry, Bonecrusher. The limbs and chest pieces are already taken."
    "Well, can I be the head?"
    "No, the head just kinda flies in from Primestrailerland."
    "Then...um...where do I get to go."
    "I dunno how to tell you this, so I'll just say it: You're the ass piece."
    "...
    ...You're shi##ing me!"
    "No, actually, you're shi##ing for us. You shoulda read that contract better."

    Are there any differences between the Japanese and American reissues of these guys?

    I have a question I've been wanting to ask.

    In January, I purchased the Japanese re-release of the Railbots. Recently, I was able to acquire the American versions (series III) through eBay.

    Which set should I open please? Which one should I keep unopened?

    Thank you in advance.

    :lol

    I'd leave the US ones carded and open the Japanese ones since they come in those generic/blind boxes.
