Figure King No. 278 - Shinkalion Z Transforming Train Figures

This month Magazine Figure King covers the animated cartoon series Shinkalion Z with new episodes that will be available for Japan in April, 2021 and the release of the action figures to follow. While this may look like the Transformers, it is a different show based on robots made after the popular Japanese Shinkansen trains, as described in Wikipedia:

Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion (Japanese: 新幹線変形ロボ シンカリオン, Hepburn: Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkarion, "Transforming Bullet Train Robot Shinkalion") is a Japanese toy franchise created by Takara Tomy, in association with the Japan Railways Group.[1] It is a spin-off of the long-running Plarail model train franchise, with the toys first launched back at March 16, 2015.

What is interesting is the toys are designed by Takara TOMY who have mentioned we have a Masterpiece Raiden in the works. Surely, this is not a coincidence, and will be interesting to see what we get for the Transformers franchise. You can check out the current Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion Takara toys line that is now available from
