    Not getting Raiden at large, but am interested in Kaen as a one-off. It would be cool to have a freight engine TF.

    Well, if we’re gonna use the original toys as a reference, MPG Raiden is sized just fine. Have you seen how small those original toys are? :p 

    But I understand that some folks want a bigger combiner for their MP shelf.

    For the Japanese market though, where (display) space is a rare commodity, the sizing makes perfect sense.

    But this brings us back to the point that the individual bots are in scale for MP. They scaled the combiners out of scale with their own individual parts in the show

    You cannot have a combiner that is to scale with how it was in the show, and also how its robots were in scale. Given Takara's push on this is the train modes and the individual robots, they're to scale, and Raiden's at the scale he should have actually been

    The individual bots are to scale, which is 100% consistent with the MP line. The only way to make combined mode meaningfully larger would be to use partsforming. I wonder how many of the people who want a larger Raiden would be ok with that

    It's probably due to the angle and pose, but Kaen looks lopsided.

    Is the video uploaded somewhere? Anyway, it seems that the thickness of the leg is similar to the Getsuei one with panel full extended, good!

    If I've said it once I've said it a million times, train modes look absolutely amazing and everything else looks like an afterthought, especially that combined mode

    From what we can see of the Combined mode, it looks way cleaner put together than the individual kibble bots.
