    Mine stands with all stuff stored no issue. You can click the knees inward once and move the hips back (adjust the buttflap) to help with stability

    They should update the Raiden pic, looks like the Midget Keanu Reeves meme

    But…….. that’s what it looks like. Not sure how they can fix that at this point. This is what people have been complaining about for quite a while.

    It's mistrasformed, at least in the chest area. He's more slender than that

    It is a terrible angle. We've seen way better.

    Not sure what you mean. Shouki looks correct in those shots to me. I really think a lot of people are not getting how short and wide this combiner is. I'm really anxious for Kaen to release so we can finally complete Raiden and see for ourselves how he looks in person.

    I'm still convinced he cannot stand well without a support stand. He's very back heavy and the Yukikaze ankle on mine can barely get to 90 degrees and seems to want to lean back which will not help. Raiden also does not have large enough heel spurs to counteract the large Shouki and Kaen backpacks in combined mode. We shall see in February I guess!

    Are there any recommended videos that show how to get these guys from bot to combiner mode? Maybe the "Just Transform It" guy? The illustrations on the official instructions are just too small for me anymore.

    I've had Seizan for three weeks and haven't even opened him yet...

    Wotafa on YT has very good transformation videos for all the train bots. Takara also has transformation videos showing all three modes. Not sure how far back they go. They may not have all the trains.

    maybe better, but i wouldn’t say “way better” :D  imo having larger/longer hips, as well as thighs that are actually the same size as the thighs on the leg bits, would’ve gone a loooong ways of giving him better proportions. as he is here, he’s stockier than i’d like - reminds me of the power rangers megazord “dude in a costume” 90s look

    I don't think Kaen is going to be adding much weight. A lot of the stability is going to depend on what you can do with the hips, a lot of pics have quite a strong gundam pelvic thrust lean which should help, and even the prototype can pose with no stand.
