Takara Teases #Transformers Masterpiece Raiden - In the Works
The original, is for me, a “holy grail” figure that even we Lukis Bros don’t own, being one of the very first official #Transformers sold exclusively in Japan, and never had a release in North America. This was back in the days before I knew there were Transformers sold in other countries that could potentially be somehow different those I had access to as a child. By the time we figured this out, the cost was already through the the roof! I’ve picked up random incomplete, team members at Botcon before, but have yet to complete the set. Now, the original Takara Exclusive train combiner team is getting the modern toy treatment. So it would seem from a new display at “Railway in the Sky” exhibit, photo cred and info courtesy of Autobase Aichi.
Loosely translated Japanese
“...As previously announced on SNS and magazine articles, TAKARATOMY's Transformers booth has a preview exhibition of the “Reiden Project” project.
Specifically, the announcement of a new plan for Trainbot Reiden, the Japanese version of Transformer in 1987, is the new plan, “Trainbot Reiden Masterpiece Commercialization Plan” in this exhibition became clear.
The exhibition will feature a commercialization notice on a panel featuring the silhouette of the Reiden coalescence mode and the line drawing of the six vehicles that make up the vehicle. On the monitor, there was an anime the headmasters train bot episode.
In this exhibition, the specific product specifications and prices of Masterpiece Reiden have not been clarified, but as far as you can see the panel illustrations, the latest masterpiece products of anime-style robot mode and real vehicle reproduction vehicle mode It is expected to follow the trend. In the corner of the panel, there is a description of Toei's Marcy and applications for commercialization by JR companies.
There are two toy exhibits: the case of MP-44 Convoy 3.0 and MP-45 Bumble 2.0, which are the latest masterpiece products, and the case where the train bot-related products of that time were stored...”
Oh no! ~♀️ I mean, YES! Appears toy designers of #Transformers Studio Series motorcycle trio: Arcee, Chromia and Elita-1, actually built in a mechanism to combine the 3 - as was intended by original concept art. This form was so whacky, even Michael Bay thought it’d be better to keep it offscreen!

Dollar for dollar, this is the single best Ratchet toy ever made! Think I’m wrong? Discuss!
While there have, admittedly been some great Ratchet toys over the years - notable examples: Animated Deluxe, Takara Masterpiece, 2009 Universe, Prime Deluxe... This, to me, is the best value and most quintessential version of the character ever made! Sure, the the Masterpiece figure may be qualitatively, overall better, but it’s also 10X more expensive and I have a lot more fun transforming this thing back and forth, than most MPs!
It includes a fantastic imagining of is Cybertronian alt mode and since we never saw this toy in his pre-Earth Ambulance form, it’s canonical to me as far as I’m concerned! His wrench and missile-launching/welder armament (G1 toy homage) are very clever accessories. Sure, the medi/repair bay is, of course, a bit of a stretch, but still creative and fun and near perfect scale for fixing up Micromasters damaged in battle! Beyond all that, his robot mode is exactly what I’ve been looking for: gorgeous head sculpt, well proportioned, pose-able and well deco’d. The red paint accents and weathered deco break up the mostly white plastic to a nice extent.
Siege Ratchet is a Walgreens exclusive and we think, quite worth taking the time to hunt down and find!
