    I'm not grasping why lack of partsforming is a big thing.

    Does Devilstar partsform?

    What am i missing?

    Hmmm, saw Toyworld's prototype pics yesterday, may forego that for this - if, the price isn't ridiculous...

    Looks better than the other Astrotrain.
    Will get this for my classics. I like Astrotrain to be big.

    I may be alone but I'd rather see that tool pouch/hip skirt flip up over the lower abdomen than hinder the leg movement like MP-Lambor suffers from.

    Looks good. You wait 4 years for a decent Space-Choo-Choo and two come along at once.

    Astrotrain wars... F yeah!!! The shuttle mode on the TW looks better I think but overall I like the bot mode here a bit mode.

    That said, I wouldn't mind getting one of each company. Really like Astrotrain.

    Hmm. MP height but not MP styled. I will have to wait and see but this one does look better than Toyworlds

    While i will appreciate the upcoming astrotrain wars from afar, this one doesn't look to have the right look for my MP collection. The TW version was too small… Still waiting.

    TW version looks more "real world" faithful for both shuttle and train, however this looks far more animation accurate - not just colors, but designs too.

    Could be hard to choose between them to be honest, they both look pretty nice.

    Even if Toyworld's was grey the design is still based more off of some comic / universe astro train design, not infact g1 astrotrain.

    the bot mode on this one looks a bit better. but i think i like toyworlds overall. they just need to get the colors sorted out. its still a hard decision though.

    Yup not getting this for the same reason. Good for the Classics guys who want a big-ass Astrotrain though.
