    At this point it's up to probably either Cang Toys or Zeta. Would love to see the former's take on it.

    At one time the same was said about Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sunstreaker, a v2 Megatron… with Masterpiece we can really only say we never know what they’ll do.

    Given how they barely touch decepticons and haven't done a single JG1 exclusive baddie, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say Liokaiser is gonna be a stretch for MP

    Or MMC, which will probably get to it if they don’t wanna do any of the usual ones like your Menasors and Superions. But even if they did they probably will cause the market is untapped for Liokaiser.

    I'm kind of afraid to see the price, especially with the new MP pricing. If they're larger figures like MP-44 or Starscream, probably looking at $300 USD per limb and $1800 USD total for all 6 limbs. Hard to tell if they would be going bigger or smaller for Raiden (i.e. would it be voyager sized figures or full on MP sized bots like Prime or Megatron, mainly because the trainbots are larger).

    The designer already said he'd be similar in size to Combiner Wars figures. So no way will the individual robot modes be Prime/Starscream sized, or cost that much.

    I was thinking, according to chart, the generic Trainbot arrives at Optimus bottom windshield.
    The combined form could really be something between Scramble Combiners and Titan Combiner.

    Edit:

    They’re more likely to be $130~ each indicative of that carbot sort of size. Much like the CW/UW Constructicons. Which is in line with scale charts to work with MP figures, obviously being a little bigger give or take.

    Exactly. Carbot size or smaller most likely.

    I think they're going to be about the same size as Combiner Wars Hook.

    Unpopular opinion, my only real concern is individual bot mode size and I guess a non-chibi train. I'm not so much hung up on the size of the combiner.
