    Aaargh, HLJ's preordering system is so annoying.
    I've had Astrotrain on preorder for a while but still you have to make sure they ship it to you before it runs out of stock.

    Grrr, I hope I was in time.

    There's a few annoying things about HLJ.
    1. Transformers toys are in 2 seperate sections.
    2. I can't find Henkei Astrotrain listed unless I search for "Astro Train".
    3. Items go "discontinued" too damn fast.
    4. They have Encore listed in a bunch of different places instead of all together.

    The listing said "Discontinued" when I wrote the article, which just means that HLJ doesn't expect more in. It now says Low Stock, so when they run out if they don't expect any more in it will say Discontinued, if they do expect more in it will say something like "July Restock" or "June Restock" etc.

    Since I didn't get the original classics astrotrain I might pick this guy up.
    I hope online stores still have him in stock when I decide to buy him.

    It doesn't look like he has random chrome on him like the other henkei toys.
    Am I missing something?

    edit: oh I see it now, his thrusters are chrome purple, better then silver chrome I guess

    I've been going back and forth on whether or not to get Astrotrain. I've pre-ordered and canceled my order at HLJ twice before! But now the conversion to USD is lower than the last time I tried, so I went for it. Would hate to not put that Classics gun to good use and all that.

    I'm on the fence with this Astrotrain...I was going to replace my Hasbro classics version but ever since I got the TRU reissue and he's white as well I'm now kind of liking the white classics version...

    Guess it will be a pass for now...:banghead:

    I'm actually focusing on completing my classics collection before getting repaints, although I prefer this color better, it would go rad with my original (although beat up) G1 Astrotrain.

    Man does Astrotrain look hot with darker colors.

    I keep telling myself, "you will NOT get into Henkei." I went way overboard with Classics and really burnt myself out. But every new release sees me getting closer to caving.

    Why can't that damn money tree start growing in my back yard?
