    :D 

    good ol space choo has been notoriously inconsistent in both comics and cartoon. while in UKs space pirates he was modestly shown carrying a small decepticon unit, TFTM had his innards big enough to house devy in combined mode.

    that said, in a sci fi universe that employs subspace tech/theories, it borderline plausible. most recently marvel's nextwave features the protagonists' ship which appears smaller from the outside but roomy on the inside.

    ...a scene with 30 decepts getting into 'stro on fast forward with clown music playing would be hella funny tho.

    Yup, we need animation of all Decepticons departing from Astrotrain, followed by Doctor Who.

    Guess that's why the movie producers had to be careful which characters they chose... As he's one of my favourite Decepticons I'd love to see ASTROTRAIN in the movie, but can't see him working in 'reality'.

    The good thing about the cartoons is that the inconsistant scale didn't matter.

    :lol  I'm with KA on this one. I could never figure out the confusing proportions inside Astrotrain's shuttle mode.

    I have given this some thought, it might work in the next LAM if he were expandable, and only reached a recognizable form when empty.

    Alright KA, I think you need to draw us a Decepticon circus pic now, with space choo as a clown car.

    Make sure to give Starscream a big red squeeky nose and big floppy clown shoes

    So, these guys would be Decepi-clowns, right? I could swear an Autobot uses that phrase somewhere in the cartoon...

    That's Decepti-clowns and I think Ironhide liked to say that. Yes? No? Maybe so?

    Yeah, that sounds familiar. I am willing to guess it would have been said either by Ironhide or Cliffjumper.

    Similar things could be said about G1 Omega Supreme as well, but maybe not as extreme an example as Astrotrain.
