    With all the talk about Hercules, FOC Combaticons and the possible upcoming FP Stunticons. Is anyone interested in getting an updated version of the Trainbots? I know they never appeared in comic format (with the exception of a brief appeareance in DW's series). Since I believe they were released as part of the DIACLONE line, I've always imagined them as Devastator's opposite number. Now that I have TFC's version of Devastator, I would love to have some Trainbots

    Might be cool... But the US fan base really isn't attached to them. I doubt they'd sell well unless the molds were just AWESOME.

    Not really, railracer while having less members and some what dated is still a great train bot combiner and as I have no attchment to the g1 train bot I would buy them, I get the feeling a lot of people would take that stance but I could be wrong.

    I just picked up Shout's release of Headmasters. I'd be down, but it wouldn't be the next combiner I'd like to see

    I think I would rather see Monstructor than Raiden. By if they did trainbots I would pick them up.

    This. And then repaint it as Dinoking, but make them both like 12" high. I have a G1 Monstructor - for anyone who's never seen this thing up close, it's a runt.

    if they did them to scale w/herc it would be huge seeing as a train car on average is 60ft. long. and they could link up in vehicle mode as a train set just include a set of tracks with eack bot.ok im getting myself a little too excited here.

    if this did happen I dont seeing it being quite as big in demand as our devi toys have been. However it would make for a cool toy regardless.

    If its not anything like the aesthetic of Astrotrain, it will look horid like that train combiner from the Headmaster series. It looks vague, dull and completely boring!!

    Im not. Not convinced that train bots can hold a combined form well

    I think that they are sweet as shit.

    I do have to say that the Raiden pissed me off in the Head On series. Why are you a fucking train that flies? I hate head on so much.

    Pick a hobby train scale for them, and not-astrotrain and I'd want it.

    I'd be down with a new Raiden, right after I get a new Predaking!
    ... and a new Computron,...
    and Superion,...
    and Liokaiser...
    and...
