    Nope, no reference. Just presumed that between combiners of the era being ridiculous huge and them all becoming trains that would be about right. Scale will be an interesting one here

    I think the scale is quiet irrelevant in terms of trains. I have a feeling they’re gonna try. But it’s not gonna be perfect.

    Also with the giant combiner thing I’m not sure where that’s gonna go. Since the combiners being ridiculously large seemed like very specific and not very true moments. Starscream in Bruticus’s shoulder, Bruticus also using Shockwave as a gun and Optimus being held in Devastor’s palm like a doll seem like definitely poorly made moments.

    However scenes such as Devastor’s destruction of Autobot City feels a lot more right. The constructicons transform next to the decepticons and the scale remains fairly constant. Resulting in him being more like a giant or larger than average troll. Very powerful and big but not stupid large.

    Can't believe the first MP combiner isn't going to be Devastator...I'm very curious for more details and an official confirmation.

    Some more pics and info from Autobase Aichi.
    特別展 天空ノ鉄道物語のライデンプロジェクト予告展示にてマスターピース商品化が発表

    Tomorrow, “ Special Exhibition Tenku no Railroad Story”, a railway related event to be held from December 3rd at Roppongi Hills Mori Tower .
    Today, on December 2nd, a preview is held and the venue is open to the public.

    This article only deals with an exhibit on TAKARATOMY transformers.

    As previously announced on SNS and magazine articles, Takara Tomy's Transformers booth has a preview exhibition of the “Leiden Project” project.

    Specifically, the announcement of a new plan for Trainbot Leiden, the Japanese version of Transformer in 1987, is the new plan, “Trainbot Leiden Masterpiece Commercialization Plan” in this exhibition. Became clear.

    The exhibition will feature a commercialization notice on a panel that features the silhouette of the Leiden combined mode and the line drawing of the six vehicles that make up the vehicle. On the monitor, there was an anime the headmasters train bot episode.

    In this exhibition, the specific product specifications and prices of Masterpiece Leiden have not been clarified, but as far as you can see the panel illustrations, the latest masterpiece products of anime-style robot mode and real vehicle reproduction vehicle mode It is expected to follow the trend.

    There are two toy exhibits: the case of MP-44 Convoy 3.0 and MP-45 Bumble 2.0, which are the latest masterpiece products, and the case where the train bot-related products of that time were stored.

    Not sure if we'll see more, but we already saw the initial teaser at least. The event is supposed to start later tonight.

    i've noticed before Takara does like major releases for milestone numbers. Could Raiden be MP-50?

    I guess New Project Raiden is a just titan class.

    Shh, you can't say things like that. Takara never acknowledges numbers ,they didn't make MP Megatron MP38 , but they did make Legends 50 Sixshot, with his own special box.

    I don't believe MP Artfire sold very well.
    MP Star Saber, am not sure how well that sold outside JP.

    I'd be interested in an MP Raiden, but I still believe post movie / Japan only character Masterpieces are a hard sell.

    I'm still having a difficult time believing this is an actual MP release. Even if the word is used, could it just mean something like "most accurate", and just be a re-release with excellent paint?
    Even if it is a MP, considering the prices of the line, we'd be looking at our first four-digit priced release. That'd be a very hard sell.

    Not the MP combiner announcement I would have preferred , but color me excited. Hopefully they find a better factory than the ones they have been using for MPs.

    I know, it's crazy! But it literally and specifically says it will be an entry in the Masterpiece line!
    The Japanese fans on Twitter are already going crazy over this! (banzai, banzai banzai!)

    I have no interest in Raiden but if this sells well I'm sure it'll open the gates for future Masterpiece combiners.

    Very curious about the scale they will go with. Perhaps they will scale them with Japanese model trains.

    im pretty sure takaras focus for sales in only japan, hence why takara tomy mall doesnt ship outside japan. sales outside of japan are an ancillary bonus for them, not necessarily a primary concern
