    I imagine that Hasbro Pulse will offer whatever this is. Looking forward to the reveal. As long as it's not a Masterpiece version that costs $500...

    Agreed. I wouldn't mind Titan class to match Omega, Preda and Devy.

    After all these years of posting, praying and Unicron level deals with the Godhand, we're finally getting a Raiden?!! Let me say it again:

    I’m good, the seacons are enough of a pain in the heart for one combiner team, I don’t need to go through it again with Tomas the tank engine and friends, glad for those that want it though

    Hol up... is the announcement saying that Takara is gonna be literally linking the real trains that the Raiden components turn into at this train festival? Can they even do that, I thought they were all the "engine car?" I don't know much about trains but I hear they have serious fandoms, and that they're extremely tightly woven into Japanese infrastructure.

    ...Or is this just a toy announcement?

    They're joining an existing train festival to hold a celebration of the character of raiden in order to launch 'new projects'.

    This, much like Unicron, would be something I didn’t know I needed until it was announced.

    I’ve always been a train guy, so I’d be all over these, despite having no connection to the character(s).

    wild speculation: the first masterpiece combiner?

    Reasons it’s not that crazy: he partsformed in the show, Japanese original character native to Japan, fan favorite, all the individual members can be the same size without the need for engineering shenanigans, they’re big characters so they’ll make for a big combiner without mass shifting

    The Autobot's are short on REAL G1 COMBINERS. So adding the Trainbots to the lot would've been cool but NOT from Takaratomy!

    I'm not paying $35-$60 for individual trains. They're not that important to me.

    I'd be extremely happy for an Encore Reissue of the original since I have the Diaclone version and not the real Transformers release, or a Generations Selects updated release. Either regular Combiner sized or Titan sized, I don't care. Just gimme Raiden pretty plz, kthnx.

    What if it's a new Japanese only series featuring trains? It wouldn't be the first series (outside of transformers) about trains to come out it Japan and they already have a train Optimus from 6 years ago.

    Would also give them a new transformers series on the off chance that they don't like cyberverse.
