    I love trains. I think all boys love trains or loved trains at some point. So naturally, I had toy trains, like Thomas the Tank Engine and I made train tracks that would snake around my entire room.

    Then I thought, how BADASS would it be if Hasbro made something similar with the Transformers brand? There are Transformers that turn into trains, and they could be made at Cyberverse scale to interact with train tracks by other companies, or playsets made by Hasbro themselves, like a roundhouse with spaces for all the Raiden trains, labelled with Autobot symbols and the like. Also, they could make things like Mt. St. Hillary with train tracks that go around the Ark and inside and DAMN it would be awesome. Also, Astrotrain would have his own sort of "lair".

    What do you think?

    Oh neat! Never new about that, But I mean actual transforming Cyberverse trains that turn into robots. The caboose from the set actually turned into a jet, and that could be really cool!

    Also @Megabattimus, a Rail Racer would be entirely possible in the trains line. They'd be smaller, but still pull of what they do best, COMBINING!

    This is a bit of a rabbit trail, but I just don't follow why we need a "new" Rail Racer. The RiD version is one of the most awesome Transformers ever. If it's not broke, there's no need to try to fix it.

    Back on topic: A new set of trains as Transformers would be really cool.

    Trains aren't as relevant to a boys toy market, though.

    I still have that old Tyco set. :D 

    And I echo the above comments re: Rail Racer, he stands up well against many modern TFs. Reissue please!
