    I'll see what it is and what it costs, but I doubt there's anything that can be done to make me prefer the combined mode over the other modes. I hardly ever bother with aftermarket parts - either I like the toy stock or I don't buy it at all.

    Well scored a deal on the set for $675 and pulled the trigger. Worst case scenario they will look good with ss86 Ultra Magnus because call it MP all you want those trainbots are chug scale

    So, they're basically Deluxe Class for MP scale.

    This is cool because it means that if they become Voyager Class or such in the mainline they could be pulled-off a little better.

    Basically, yeah. Trainbots are supposed to be around carbot height, if not a hair shorter, so it works. Mainline voyagers would be a bit large. Deluxes would work fine there, too. Just need to add some more combiner kibble to the frame to keep combined mode around Legacy Menasor height.

    Took me a few hours for everything. The majority of the time was getting mpg raiden to stand on his own and everytime i moved this or that piece something would come undone or fall off. G1 raiden is very simple and straight forward. MS raiden is simple enough, the difficult part is/was always connecting moon shine/shouki to iron arm/kaen in combiner mode

    If the officials were to scale with the Moon Studio they would be enormous in train mode.

    Great comparisons. Thanks for posting these. Makes me wonder how many other people in the world could possibly own this trio.

    Reinforces my satisfaction with the Takara take on these. I love that they made fantastic HO scale alt modes. I have to look away when I see those toy-like MS trains.
