    The fact that they have the same alt modes and have different bot modes and different gestalt modes is so hawt.

    MP Sunstreaker and Sideswipe get a lot of praise for basically the same thing. So Shouki and Yukikaze deserve a comparable amount of satisfactory eyebrow raises.

    The brothers got some Mario and Luigi energy going in these pics.

    -ZacWilliam, I'm interested in the MP but I'd be more interested in a reissue of the original.

    Yes, please for MP Raiden's combined mode looking like his TF Headmasters toon design.

    Makes me wonder if Yukikaze will be the last Trainbot released. It would be a nice bookend for the group.

    I wonder how they are going to release these, especially if they go toon/toy simultaneously. Don't really want to wait 3 years to finish him but I dont want this clogging up other releases.

    A reissue I would buy instantly. I’m a vintage collector as well, but only a dilettante in that there’s no way I’ll ever get Japanese exclusives. Reissues of Raiden, Victory Saber, et al would make my day!

    Definitely coming out one at a time. Maybe 2. But once they get going I bet it’s a release every 3 months.

    after all of them come out I bet there will be a gift set in Diaclone colors on TTM and it will be very exp. it also allows Raiden to have his own number in the line vs. Shouki being MP-59 and Yukikaze being MP-60 and the like.

    Or maybe they will do MP-59S and MP-59Y. Oh this is neat! How will the numbers be allotted to a combiner?

    Since these seem to be smaller budget figures like Skids and Reboost(which they have to be to stop Raiden from being $700+ dollars.) I would imagine a release similar to the Seacons would be most likely. 1-2 figure for around $100 released together in 3 in batches every 2-3 months.

    Gray is the color that ties them together adding cohesion.

    The other colors allow for the combined mode to look like it's the combing together of different characters while also making each character visually unique. Which I'm very glad they did, as if they were all similar colors they'd be harder to tell apart. Thankfully they also have very unique heads. :)

    I was going to say no because of Shouki’s leak but after looking at the animation models he’s the only one without the flared legs isn’t he? Well well well! The rest of the bots could definitely have some 44/52 legs. Sexy sexy!

    Wonder how are they going to do the legs? The arm bots are actually similar, designing one is pretty much designing the other. The legs are similarly designed bots, different altmodes, that would take some serious respelling/remolding to pull off. We

    The arms are similar and the legs are similar. That's great news. Takara can invest in two molds and have four of the six members covered.
