    UPDATE 03/25/2021
    ========================================


    Google Translation:

    I think it's a good idea. Skids as a transformer and a new character reboost that makes the city a lopot. Reboost is a new character, so it's a little more luxurious, and it comes with a Motocompo. Several developments of the masterpiece are underway in parallel, and trainbots and new skyfires are finally in operation. Leiden will be similar in size to the Unite Warriors. We have been waiting since the first announcement, but please look forward to it.

    Whaattttttttttt?
    Nice ! tbh..with all their Shinkalion combiner train bots offerings lately, this seems to be a no brainer by Takaratomy.
    Are we finally going to see a modern take on the Trainbots aka Raiden? :drool: 
    Dont get my hopes up too high..

    Could this new project be part of Diaclone Reboot, or would it more likely be something for Transformers?

    Exciting news. I was never interested in an MP Raiden, but I might buy a chug version.

    Don't really know a lot of Raiden (only Raiden I care about is a God of Thunder), but might be interested if this is a Generations release and the molds seem fun.

    I would be so hyped for a Generations Raiden. I would just hope its distributed in a more consumer friendly way than the Seacons are being handled right now. Boxset kplzthx

    If the steam train turns into a robot, I’m willing to exchange my first born for a sample. Please I really like trains

    Really though, would this be normal CHUG or another Seacons situation?

    A new Generations Raiden would involve more remolding than I would expect from a Geneartion Selects release. Curious to see what this ends up being.
