Toy News: Takara Tomy Announces a Special Edition of "Masterpiece G" Kaen


Takara Tomy has posted an interesting listing for a special edition of the upcoming Masterpiece G Kaen figure.  Kaen's official photos surfaced last week, but this is the first we are seeing of this special set.  Instead of just a regular box as previous Trainbots in the series, this edition will come with a large box that is intended to be able to store all the other Trainbots, creating a "gift set" like those from G1!  In addition to the box, this set will include stands for the trains (they flew in the show) and a silver version of Raiden's sword.  This special edition is priced at 25,300 Yen (about $181.51 USD) with a release date of February 2024.

Check out the pics and info below from the Takara Tomy listing (as translated via Google Translate):

In the 6th installment from the new Transformers series "MPG", the diesel locomotive DE10 is completely transformed into a robot! Since it is a fully poseable specification, you can enjoy reproducing the pose in the play. You can also enjoy the display by placing it on the attached rail, and a weapon (power laser) and a light sword for Raiden are also included. In addition, it has a triple change specification, and it can be transformed into the waist part of "Raiden"! You can complete "Raiden" by combining with 5 types of train bots sold separately. Raiden's character card is also included!

And this special specification version is a special version of Train Bot Kaen that comes with a Leiden BOX that can set 6 types of Train Bots for each package. In addition to the train bot Kaen set, a plated version of the light sword for Raiden, TF power base (base A & B), TF power base (arm x 2), and dedicated display stand (arm x 4) are included. 6 vehicles can be displayed in vehicle mode.
