Going by the pics I'd say universal joints mostly, nothing that crazy or involved.

That's what I'm looking at. I don't see any leg joints.


More like Optimus ExPrime I guess.articulation wise I mean.
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

My Ex Prime has thigh and knee joints. I don't see any thigh joints, knee area looks like a solid piece too.

It just got to me. Shouldn't this be in the non TF section like Diabetes? Both are TT creations but not actually "Transformers"

So each train is essentially the same three cars, but with different heads and bits. I like how they can cross combine but see it getting old quick.

No, HLJ sold out and getting these for under Japanese MSRP was probably the only way I was gonna do it. Was going to use them as stand-ins for some of the Raiden members.

If I had gotten them, unless there's some fiction for these things, I would have used Shinkalion E5 Hayabusa (the teal one) as a female while Shinkalion E6 Komatchi (the red one) and Shinkalion E7 Kagayaki (the blue one) would be males.

AFAIK BBTS never got them in and that was really the only way I was going to try them out. As it is, seeing how they're all the same mold with one or two differences I'm in no rush to get them.

What is very interesting is that this is part of the Plarail line which was a toyline from the Tomy part of the company, and the toyline which Tomy had designed G1 Omega Supreme to be in line with.




Oh man, how sweet would it be to a set of these train bots, and redesigned G1 style omega to go with the set!

I'll be all over these once they get around to giving them hips and knees. For now I'm satisfied with RID Team Bullet Train.

Animated commercial that reveals that E5 Hayabusa and 500 Kodama can cross (as in, combine) with each other!
