    Transformers MPG-06 Trainbot Kaen

    The barrel and butt ends of the gun come off and attached to each other and store in one of his legs (see post above).
    The main part of the gun fits in under the train.

    Received the big ass box from TCP today. Raiden is fiddly as hell but does look better in person. Not great but not as bad as I thought or seen online. It looks decent in a neutral pose and Kaen is probably the best bot of the group.

    Big problem with Raiden is that he's got a serious muffin-top, so viewing him from a high angle completely obscures his waist and hips and looks derpy as heck. From an even or low angle, however, he looks positively heroic in that classic Japanese super robot way.

    Basically i only unscrewed Shouki legs, and rearranged Kaen on Shouki back.
    If someone could redesign Shouki thighs with combiner ports, we could easily achieve this form 1000051566.jpg 1000051565.jpg 1000051564.jpg 1000051563.jpg

    What's the benefit of the two newly announced Trainbots if one already has the original 6? Presumably they're one-to-one swaps for existing models?

    Yes, they're 1-1 swaps. A chance for TakaraTomy to do redecos/minor remolds of Trainbot molds into a very popular type of train in Japan - the Doctor Yellow diagnostic test train.

    TFSource needs to get MPG-06S in stocks asap. I cannot wait to mess with Kaen! I also want to see the massive Raiden giftset box in person

    Oh man I'd love a copy of just the waist extender alone. Hopefully someone jumps on that when it ships!

    I have a 3D printed waist extender available for people who don't have any interest in getting Ginoh. It's a fair bit plainer, though.

    Its morbidly funny when you're in Japan and you see cutesy art like this, that's warning you if you do or don't do this you may die.

    Clearly the illustrator thinks it makes sense for Kaen to form the thighs.
    Would be a funnier picture if they showed Kaen becomes just Raidens boxer shorts.
