    going off of the proto and the current legbot. kaen is going to be different on the final release. also looking at the proto they are not even using shouki and a kaen for the torso it looks like just slabs of plastic epoxy together. shouki's legs also are not what are on the final release either.

    it really looks like just a proto to test out the proportions of the arms and legs and not even a combining proto.

    i would really take any thing from the proto with a fairly large grain of salt. maybe even a whole ass salt rock.

    Yeah, same. I really like the way the individual bots are turning out in their robot modes and alt modes, but Raiden...not feeling it. I'm confused by Kaen just hanging off the combiner's waist in a way that is really not cohesive at all. I knew there would be sacrifices, but that seems a bit much. I guess we'll see how it looks when it's actually done, hopefully better!

    And while I can appreciate Takara trying to integrate parts in more complex ways, I would have preferred simpler weapons for the feet that look more like the g1 toy.

    Kaen’s entire structure is highly in flux. You can see the core of both Kaen and Shouki is just blocks. I doubt this is Kaen’s final configuration.

    Taking a look, it appears that Yukikaze is going to cost a bit more that Getsuei. Am I correct in seeing this?

    Yep, he'll be closer to Shouki. For me on AJ it's Shouki to Getsuei to Sukien price-wise with about a $4.50 difference between Shouki and Sukien.

    I like Raiden so far. I know it isn't for everyone.

    I still don't get the boxes on the side of his feet? It would look better as a separate single part. Aren't they supposed to be thin wing-like pieces?

    I'm really hoping they offer an alternative part to swap in there.

    I posted my piece in the expo thread so I'll just link it here

    And I'll add another smiley as a summation of my thoughts on how the line has sadly turned out: :puke:

    The individual bots are lookin' good so far. Looks like Raiden is going to be equipped with an entire bakery in the back though.
