    This is my second custom and is still very much a wip. The trainbots like my constructicons will not be g1. They will very different. So here's the first his name is Kaen in japanese and translates to blaze. He is originally a type of diesel engine. Since he was the biggest of the group and formed the lower torse in combined mode i made him a little bigger. THe first pic is his original gl look. Pics 2 and 3 are the mode i have chosen to go with. Also there are wip pics. Thanks for looking! All c & c welcome.

    UPDATE 1/25
    I haven't really changed anything on him so far. Im still looking to see if a change with the arms is needed. Here are sum group and wip gestalt pics. For what all of u can see from here is an arm change needed and if so how can i make it fit without it causing problems for the gestalt form which is my primarly focus? I kinda like them now cause they fold back behind the body for gestalt mode. Also last pic is wip raiden next to my devy so you can see the size im going for.Thanks for looking!

    Great use of Unicron! But the upper body def needs to be bigger! But this is a great start to something really cool!

    Blimey; if you're using Unicron's forearms to make Kaen's legs, then how freakin' huge is Raiden gonna turn out? :popcorn

    pretty cool. he's got the "RID midnight express" problem with being all legs in robot, but that just sometimes happens. I like the alt mode though! I had never seen that train type before, what is it? I mean specifically, a giant gun on tracks wont' cut it. :lol 

    Bonus points for the most creative use of unicron I've ever seen.:thumb 

    Randy!

    Thanks man! Im looking at how i can possilbly beef up the upper body. Im tryn 2 keep the upper body kinda flat si the other 2 bots that make up the upper body can connect easily. I welcome any ideas.

    Well i'll give u a hint there will be 7 trainbots just like my constructicons i built. Im hopin 2 make raiden be able to look devy in the face and my devy is 36" so we'll see! Thanks for lookin bro!

    Yeah he's kinda bottom heavy but thats because hr will form raidens' lower torso. The alt mode i myself am not really sure it's not an engine though. Kaen will be the only trainbot who isn't an engine. He will be pushed n pulled by getsuei/moonlight and yukikaze/blizzard whom im working on now. From his g1 bio he's the strongman of the group so that means he'll get bigger cannons. Thanks for lookin man!

    no i totally understand him being "bottom heavy".

    My question is what that gun car thing is. I've never seen it before, thought you might know. I've only seen this type before

    Glad the trainbots are getting some love!

    Wow, that is a very original and interesting alt mode - It's giving me all kinds of Hearts of Steel tingles down my spine :p 

    The robot mode really does need some bigger arms and a bigger head though, to balance it out - I don't think it matters that his body itself is just a block with arms and legs sticking out, so much as making sure the arms and legs look propotionate to each other. You do want him to be a bruiser, after all, and he certainly looks like that!

    We like to amuse. :D 

    I think that fourth option on the poll was a bad plan if you actually want useful input - it's way too tempting, as evidenced by it being in second place so far... :p 

    While I'm leaning towards "no", I voted "doesn't matter". If it's a viable option from a financial standpoint (it's not exactly cheap), and using it would make your job easier, then by all means go for it. But I certainly wouldn't use it unless it made real sense to do so.
