I will have more up tonight. In the meantime..
no really that dude is cool. I definitely want him....
How much are the retailers selling him for? Maybe I should start selling these myself.
$19.60 at HobbyLinkJapan. You got yours in japan?
I LOVE the currencies at the moment.
Astotrain is coming to me for €15,- shipped. That's the same price a deluxe would retail for in Holland.
He looks really shiny in that second pics dude! Can't wait for the rest of the set.
Are ya gonna do some comparison shots too?
i preordered mine in march for only $16
Lovin that second pic. Apparently he's out in retail on my side of the continent as well.
Was not expecting him to look so shiny. Way better than the Hasbro version.
I am in Japan and I left my white Astrotrain back in Montreal :-/
You will have a detailed gallery later tonight.
The colour is beautiful.
The only bad thing about that is he's lost his purple rifle, grey just isn't the same.
Well in the show wasn't his gun gray?
Possibly - but his G1 toys gun was purple and that's the way it should be dammit!!
Man, he is sexayyyyyy..........must have him. Sold off all my classics a year ago and Henkei got me back into collecting them. Dammit! But in a good way
Yah but the original toy wasn't gray
we need the henkei in the usa now
This one does look better than the previous version, but the color scheme feels incomplete with the little bits of white on the figure. Looks good and is toon accurate on the face though. I agree on the purple gun.
man, i cant wait til www.superbeeds.com gets these in...i need my space choo choo fix...just cant decide whether i should buy two of these, or just buy a 2nd classics astrotrain... i've got a dedicated shelf for all my astrotrains and want one henkei and classics there, which means i need a second of one of the molds for my actual classics display....
How do you know they'll even stock them? Nowhere on the site mentions them carrying the Henkei line.
This is also the second thread where you're pimping out that store, which I've never heard of before. Not that I need anything from them, but since you've mentioned the place, how are you acquainted with the store? Have you ordered, or do you just know the guy running it?
Can't find a decent shot from G1 of Astrotrain holding his gun for some reason. Grey, purple, at least my Astrotrain will have options. I'd suggest tracking down an extra gun (does wheeljaxx still have some?) if you want to go with purple but don't have or want Classics Astrotrain.
Here is a pic of Astrotrain's gun from Triple Take Over
i found them about a year ago, and they have been great, and since they are in texas, shipping is way cheaper for me then from places like BBTS...and the guy is just really cool, and while he hasnt listed them on his store, he seems to take preorders via email...i just got two henkei megatrons from him, and they arrived quick and safe and are awesome, so i try to represent for him every now and then...he's got a logon to the boards here, and posts in the sales thread when he gets new stuff in too...
here's his sales thread
i just highly recommend him. his prices have always been fantastic and cheaper then most other online retailers too...and they're working on a new website, so this old one hasnt been updated in awhile...
