    I have to say that if I were to choose just one Raiden, I’d probably go with this one. I love trains and really like what TT did with the alt modes, but I would honestly have Raiden displayed in combined mode 99% of the time. And this guy wins the combined mode competition hands down, IMO. Assuming the photoshopped silhouette of TT’s we saw is what their combined mode actually ends up looking like, it just looks really awkward and half-baked, IMO. If money were no object, I’d get both of them, though.

    I suspect that there is some trickery here like what many figures do with faux chest windshields. My hunch is both bot legs come together to make one thigh (the right one, or left from our pov) and that the other gestalt thigh is made from the bot’s upper body. You can see that other thigh cover being mostly but not completely covered up by his upper back.

    If Zeta ever do the preds they’ll pull the same gimmick with Razorclaw unless they pantsform it

    At this point I don’t think having the figure in hand would make you believe it’s not faux parts :lol

    I'm absolutely loving the look of Kaen drifting around a turn in the tracks with a giant gun mounted on top. I wasn't huge on his train at first (and without the gun on top I'm still not) but this redeems it quite a bit for me.

    I'm gonna have to buy some LEGO train tracks when these guys release! They look like they'll be a lot of fun.

    I'll probably buy the first release of Moon Studios Trains, and then if a recolor comes out, I will like that better but not enough to buy more to change it out. Just like I did with Zeta's Bruticus.

    This picture literally made me think “Oh, this is why 3P transformers exist” and part of the reason why I started getting into 3P figures

    That train does not look good going around a turn, too bad it doesn't bend in the middle. It is very long. Oh well, mine is going to be in combined mode the whole time anyways, not a deal breaker.

    i’m like 99% sure this is how Kaen transforms:

    calves slide up over robot thighs making gestalt thighs, big ratchet = knee joint

    hips do something to spread out

    the chest (front sides and back, notice how the backpack is connected where the head is not directly on the back) opens up and folds down (peg on chest, hole on waist) to make the hip skirts

    arms form a little box where the chest was

    backpack goes around that box to form the abs/lower half of torso

    To be fair it isn't really the train's fault. Lego track has a very tight curve radius for a car that long. You'd just never see that in real life.

    Yup. Lego track has RIDICULOUSLY tight curves, even among the toy train brands. You should see what it takes to make the truly big locomotives work in Lego----often looks even stranger that that with more extreme overhang etc.

    Eyes on Raiden's head look pretty dead... I'm guessing to accommodate a light up feature? Kinda looks like they're blue instead of yellow, too. I'm confused by some of these coloring choices with the eyes on this set. The first two didn't seem to be following the toon, but these two do, and then the combiner head is doing it's own thing. Not a huge deal...but what is the logic here?

    I think it's only really a minor bummer because a combiner with yellow eyes would be cool since most Transformers only have either red or blue.

    Shouki ain't following the toon (or toy) at all!

    Cartoon; white train, grey arms

    Toy; white train, grey arms

    Toywo....Zet....Moon Studios. Fucking early adopters with colours since 2015.

    The only thing that changes is the company name. Tbf as diabolical as the Takara one looks combined they nailed the colours and chunky style of the cartoon/toy.
