It'll have to do until we get a definitive MP scaled Astrotrain. C'mon Fanstoys.
FT need to hurry up and give us a proper Blitzwing before someone else does. I'm fine with my Astrotrain. The new configuration still blows my mind. Here's another pic for height comparison with other 'Cons. The guy works perfectly now!
That looks surprisingly great! Wish I hadn't sold mine now.
This is a great looking Astrotrain. Congrats to those who own it.
The extra height this guy gains through the alternative foot transformation almost has me wanting him now- but I just can't get past how terrible his lower legs look from the sides...
To be fair, it isn't a high quality figure compared to some other companies. He is a placeholder at best if you are looking for MP. I bought him more for my Chug collection.
I really like his alt-modes though. Ben's Collectibles review said he has his MP Omega Supreme grabbing him in train mode. I think that is a great display idea.
And yet people loooove Constructor.
No that's damn near amazing. I have the guy on my "not really cutting it" shelf and Chighur on the main MP shelf with Ditka. I'm going to have to rethink that now that he can have the boosted height. I never heard of this mistransformation but more than anything, I'm amazed how "right" it looks. I thought it might looks off but it doesn't. If you didn't know, you'd think that's how he is supposed to look. Gonna have to change mine around when I get home.
Thanks for the pictures of that and to @Crim for bringing it to our attention!
Damn! That makes a hell of a difference! Even his thick legs don't looks so bad with his larger, taller feet. I wasn't going to get a Captain because he was slightly too small for me but now, wow. YEAH! I'm sold!
I want a reissue with better plastic quality.
Got this guy a few weeks back and love how cool he is. Yeah there is a few issues but the good outweighs the bad IMO.
Looks toon accurate for me
Love the transformation for all 3 modes
Awesome price - Got this guy for around £30.00 on ebay
Love the extra storage section for train mode
Plastic feels a little cheap - There's a small tab which I know is likely going to break after a few transformations on the top area of train mode
His Toon Accurate Head seems far too small (Someone on Shapeways needs to make a replacement)
Some may hate his huge legs
All in all, if you can find him cheap pick him up. I doubt we'll get a re-release with Diecast or better plastic. I replaced me TR Astrotrain with this guy and could not be happier
I just want an MP Astrotrain from FansToys.
@King Nergil I'm assuming all ankle tilt is lost with the alternate foot configuration?
It has no forward tilt anymore, but it is possible to move the foot back.
id really like them to take a crack at blitzwing.
How about left and right?
Only if you want to break something.
Let's say that now his feet/legs have the same poseability as an MP Seeker.
lol, gotcha and thanks. Just picked one of these guys up MIB on eBay for 60.00.
No problem! Hope you enjoy the Captain!
If the alternate foot configuration puts him at MP Seeker height than I'm good. DX9 Chigurh sticks out like a sore thumb in my collection. Nothing like buying a figure, selling it, then rebuying it!
I'll still welcome another company to take a stab at the character or even an OS KO of this guy. Ideally I would like him to be slightly bigger than a Seeker, but the animation puts them at approximately the same height in bot mode, so this ought to work just fine.
