    Where does Getsuei's gun go in train mode? I just can't figure out how to store it.

    Getsuei's gun expressly doesn't fit if you fold it. Its hinged panel, for now, is just for robot mode storage.

    I don't think we have any idea of how it stores in Raiden mode yet, though. It can't stay pegged in the undercarriage, like Yukikaze's rifle can.

    Oh, does he have hidden thrusters like all the others? I looked, but didn't see any.

    They're going a " soft" reissue of Ground Dion, I wonder if we will see some for the trains. They 're available stateside, but Amazon finally sold out of Yukikazes after Suiken' s release, and the rest of the train are either unavailable or POs are filled.

    Or the reason they're following up with the diaclone trains is to avoid a straight reissue. Similar to what there doing with MP-44s.

    No, he doesn't.

    Shouki and Yukikaze have them because they were present on their anime line art. The others don't have them iirc.

    Getsuei does actually have boosters. He has exhaust vents molded on the reverse of the front train fascia.

    What he doesn't have are the fold-out nozzles that Shouki and Yukikaze have. But it does give a practical reason for leaving it up like the instructions show, rather than folding down like a lot of people seem to prefer it.

    I thought Getsuei had thruster details molded inside his backpack flap?

    Hmm. That’s a bit of a stretch but still neat attention to detail, lol.

    It's a shame that Ono embraced the partforming transformation late in line, Getsuei and Yukikaze legs could have been more proportioned then

    Finally got to mess with Suiken and I think he is great! Only problems are the shoulders a little too tight, but that's it :)  .

    I think this could be an optional arm configuration that now has 90° elbows.

    Finally, where does his weapon go in combined mode??? Can't figure out where it stores :(  IMG_20230710_210852891.jpg IMG_20230710_210856412_HDR.jpg IMG_20230710_210920053.jpg
