Motto: "Most kind of you to surrender."
RAILSPIKE is the leader of the Bullet Train team. He is courteous, polite, and intelligent - but don't let his gentlemanly manners fool you into thinking he's not cut out for battle. He can lock, load and fire the rocket launchers on his shoulders like any true warrior. To bring down the enemy, he uses a sonic umbrella that emits ultrasonic waves as it rotates.

Comments: i just bought this transformer today. i like his train mode and the robot mode isn't too bad either. i took me awhile to understand how to get him into robot mode though.sometimes the legs will come off if played with too hard but will easily snap back on. all in all,a good addition to my collection.i must get others to form Railracer sometime.

Comments: Railspike is the main reason why Rail Racer does not look as good as the show.

Comments: I don't think Railspike is quite as "dorky" as you make him out to be. He's not THAT bad. I mean, there have been worse-looking robots in the TF line, look at the old space shuttle/train guy, his robot mode was just as dorky if not more. Bad shoulder guards or not, he's still in proportion. P.S. I clipped the end of the gun off so it fit correctly against the back. >:0(

Comments: Just a note regarding the change to opaque plastic: With the entire thing done in transparent material, it allll had to be painted. Which means paint-op problems are 10 times more pronounced. So it's more of a lateral move than a cheap-out, in my opinion.
