    At one point I would've agreed with you, but given the fact that takara tends to prioritize robot mode above all else, I have a feeling their Raiden will end up similarly sized to this one. Which will definitely make for some interesting competition

    Isn’t that like saying that it doesn’t matter whether a car manufacturer has any experience with making cars, but at least they’ve made good ornaments? Like yeah the hood or ornament looks cool and all, but my car broke itself apart after only a few miles.

    I'm personally keeping an eye on both Raidens. Radiatron looks FANTASTIC, but i'm honestly more intrigued on how a Takara combiner's gonna end up working.

    I would probably only go for this if it was released as a set. Otherwise I would worry Takara would put the smack down halfway through and it would never finish.

    It is going to be released as a set IMHO. I would bet money on it being the same situation as Studio1 with Unicron. That is why they showed off the whole design. They had prototypes over a year ago. I am sure this is much farther along and we likely get this some time next year.

    I see the mainline combiners (Studio Series, Combiner Wars, POTP) as an experiments by TakaraTomy to see what works and what's not for Masterpiece

    I am a bit disappointed they didn't keep the Antennas/launcher pegs on Seizan and Suiken from the show models/Diaclone toys. I always liked that look for them.

    My prediction is that Moon Studio will be releasing the trains based on Diaclone Train Robos 1-6 first then the ones based on Train Robos 7-12...

    (googles) There was a second version of Diaclone Raiden? And they made one of them Doctor Yellow?!?! I had almost zero plans to get any of these guys, but if they make Doctor Yellow, I may have to snag one. Plus, it's a ready-made perfect "3P" name. Always did think Dr Crank was pretty good, but it's nothing compared to Doctor Yellow.

    You know... during the MP10 era of Masterpiece, I would have said that Takara will be all right when it comes to making a combiner. No questions asked.

    But given how delicate MP-Sunstreaker and so have been. I can only imagine how finicky an actual Masterpiece combiner would be. Imagine an MP Stunticon team. A bunch of individual boys that look good from the front with awkward backpacks. And a Menasor that crumbles at every hinge.

    If this one stands close to eye to eye with the Toyworld Devastator, I will support it.
