Cool! Not Armada Laserbeak, oh well.
I want to see the head sculpt on a prototype before deciding to get this.
So not only are you bringing over a wanted repaint, but you're also giving it a much better head? Kickass.
i think we all knew it and it still rocks. i'm not big on the gigantic decep logo or the yellow lines around it or the little lines on the wings. but overall, i like it.
Yup, that rules. Was making an effort before to make sure I could go to the con', now they will be doubled.
Unfortunately I'm not a fan of the toy. It's a very unsophisticated design, like something for toddlers.
I still think Rail Spike would've been a much better Astrotrain.
looks nice. to bad i didnt join the club.....WAAAAAAAAAH!
YEA it look slike the combiner thing is stopping for now. its gonna be back tho
It's a nice mold. Hopefully the new deco will be as well.
Where does it mention the combiner is on hold? Am I just dumb and missing it? This isn't replacing the combiner, we still have to BUY Astrotrain, just that club memebers are the only ones who can buy him. Well...'cheaply'.
What are you guys talking about? The combiner deal was only for the free membership toy each year. Other exclusives are completely outside of that deal, and seeing an exclusive that is not a combiner does not mean, for one second, that the "combiner deal is done."
I like this paint scheme. I've never owned that mold before, and looking at pictures of robot mode on other sites, I know why I've never owned it. It's a nice scheme though. And really adds some visual pop to it.
Not bad at all. And if you're a fan of the mold, I'd have a hard time imagining that it wouldn't appeal to you. Good going club guys.
WHOAAAAA, hold on
The combiner toy is the free give away, all members still get that for free yearly. This is the first of two club exclusives that will be available for purchase in the club store
I'm really looking forward to this. I hope the final head design looks as good as the design pics. Hopefully it will be ready for Botcon.
About freakin' time that repaint got released! Now I bet their next exclusive is the Armada Hot Shot with the G1 Smokescreen colors.
Here's a gallery of it here: http://tfkenkon.com/collection/act222/
Not a huge surprise, but a new head sculpt rocks! With a new head and dropping the decepticon insignia makes it a winner in my book.
Reading the character's backstory sounds like the character is aligned with the decepticons because they have similar mindsets only. If he's joined with them for convience, why would he want to parade around with a decepticon logo bigger than any other con's logo?
Well, what can I say, except that after Alvarez's 20 questions, this was the most likely mold for the exclusive.
I sure hope they get rid of the giant Decepticon symbol.
I'll be buying it mostly because it features a new head. I could change my mind depending on my future purchase of TF: Classics Astrotrain though.
And don't forget about Smokescreen's opponent, Drench!
I'm probably setting myself up for an answer of "soon" here, but I've gotta ask, when is the 2nd club exclusive expected? I see this one is scheduled for Fall, so it's hard to imagine a 2nd exclusive being done this year unless it's already almost ready.
(Or is my assumption that FP is striving for 2 a year mistaken, and the 2nd one in the pipeline is the only thing on the table for now?)
