They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: Toy; train mode

He's the strongest of the Trainbots, and Kaen (カエン) is extremely proud of this fact. He's got the punch, and he can really bring on the heat, literally. This sometimes puts him at odds with his cold-loving teammate Yukikaze, especially since they have to physically link together when they form Raiden.

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

The Headmasters comic

Dreamwave Generation One comics

Can you see me,can you?! Can you?!

Kaen (or someone who looks a lot like him) was part of a big crowd of unhappy Cybertronians who made Prowl look really stupid when he tried to make a speech assuring them that everything would be okay after the collapse of Shockwave's supposedly benevolent rule. Skyfire


The Headmasters

  • Kaen (Trainbot, 1987)
    • Japanese ID number: C-130
    • Accessories: "Power laser" pistol, 3 "joint parts" connectors, left & right "wing lasers"
Kaen transforms into a DE10 diesel locomotive. He also forms the lower torso and head of the team's combined mode Raiden.
  • Raiden (Gift set, 1987)
The entire Trainbot team was sold both as individuals and in a six-bot Raiden gift-set. The box-set versions are identical to their individual releases.
  • Raiden (TF Jr set, 1987)
An exceedingly simplified version of the entire Trainbot team was made available as part of the Transformer Jr series. Each individual has a (stumpy) representation of their larger robot modes, and could combine to form a stumpy Raiden.


  • Kaen (Trainbot, 1990)
    • Japanese ID number: C-359
    • Accessories: "Power laser" pistol, 3 "joint parts" connectors, left & right "wing lasers"
The Trainbots were re-released during Zone in new packaging, and only as individuals, never in a box set. The toys are identical to their original Headmasters incarnations.


  • Though it is a little tricky to tell the true meaning of Kaen's name since it is "spelled" in phonetic Katakana rather than Kanji, the most likely translation to English is "Blaze".
  • The Trainbots are all originally Diaclone toys, which came in two different color schemes. It's also worth noting that there are several mold differences between the Diaclone and Transformers versions. Kaen didn't change much. The Transformers releases also lost the Diaclone pilots (of course) and the little plastic tracks for the trains to ride on.
