Via Weibo we can share for you images of the color prototypes of Moon Studio MS-01 Dark Night (G1 Getsuei) & MS-02 Ice Land (G1 Yukikaze).
These figures are modern takes on the Japanese G1 Trainbots and they are part of Moon Studio Radiatron / G1 Raiden combiner. As we can see from the images both figures look pretty detailed, specially in train mode. We also have a look at their respective combiner mode. As with the original G1 figures, each robot form one leg of the combiner. According to the information shared previously, each robot will be around 24 cm tall and 26 cm long in alt mode.
We still have no concrete information on price or release date, but stay tuned with TFW2005 for more updates. Click on the bar to see all the mirrored images on this news post and then share your impressions on the 2005 Board!
But, im in The Netherlands.
So for European buyers, hit me up
I'm selling my set of Moon Studio Trainbots if anyone in Canada might be interested in them. Transformed once, combined once. Faction labels applied.
I’m a sucker for toon accuracy so.. I decided to paint MS Raiden’s eyes yellow. One weird thing I noticed is that the whole eyes assembly felt like it was designed for Light Up feature, but midway they decided to scrap that.
That was my solution until I couldn't get both of those panels open for 10 minutes. But with enough prying with spudger miracles can happen.
It was a pain in the ass, but they were separated without breakage.

Or wait, did you say without breaking something? I finally used a hammer to beat Moon Shine and Iron Arm together so I don't think there is any way to pull them apart without a fair bit of violence. But some reviewers say the combining was simple (and then do it off-camera or with their body blocking a decent view of how they did it).
Yes you need to open them, thought that wpuld be obvious haha
Is it possible to do that while Iron Arm's back panels are the in the way or do I need to untab those first?
Okay after fiddling with Iron Arm's panels and literally taking it off the mushroom peg I got moonshine untabbed. Whew that was stressful.
Unclip the 2 tabs on the back of moonshine from iron arm, Then slide him forward and up
I'm disassembling the combined mode and running into a problem getting Moon Shine disconnected from Iron Arm. Anyone have any tips on how I can get these two apart with breaking something?
I've had mine in combined mode the moment I completed the team with him posed in my den on shelf holding a "V" hand pose and the arm has not slumped at all.
On that same note he took a fall from said shelf the other day and held up just fine, the chest shield was the only part to come off and some of the panels came untabed but no damage.
No he dwarfs them all. This is a very big bot
yep, but managed to fix it
Finally put this guy together! What? About 8 months since I completed the set.
He’s one big and heavy guy!
He has a tendency to lean forward and he’s a little crooked: left side seems a little shorter.
Also, Cool Peak can’t handle the weight of his gun, which really sucks! I’ve had them in train mode since completing the set. Not even in robot mode. So it sucks that the ratchet in Cool Peak can’t handle the gun.
Anyone else experience similar problems with Cool Peak and Raiden?View attachment 29871655
Anyone on the east coast (DMV area) looking for a full combiner set? I can cut you a good deal if you can pick up. Shipping will be prohibitively expensive. Dm me
I managed to get parts for my Getsuei and Shouki with ease. But that was from ShowZ.Store…
Thanks for reminding me that Bombusbee STILL haven't sorted out the part I need for Green Zone. That was last bloody year, n'all. Are Moon Studio hard to get replacement parts from, or are Bombusbee just playing silly buggers?

Yep – I thoroughly enjoy the side-by-side photos that people post of their 3P combiners. Its abundantly clear that TW Constructor and MS Raiden were designed by the same team. Zeta are improving their work with each new project they release.
Thanks for the pics. They look like they're almost identical in height/size
I believe that depends on how you have Razorclaw's thighs set (there were 3 height levels), but it is still a good bit taller than MMC's Feral Rex. There is an OSKO of Feral Rex though that is closer. I think this pic is with Rex's shortest height, plus Assaultus is a little taller with the add-on boots. Keep in mind Feral Rex is from the Reformatted line and almost a decade old now, it wasn't meant to be the same scale (more with Generations than MP). Pic courtesy of LazyAza.
