    Here is a small repaint I did. I just couldn't stand looking at that plain ole white astrotrain anymore. Besides the fact the one I remember had been grey and purple. I liked the Henkei version so I painted it in that deco, but without that crummy purple chrome.

    Hope you like.

    That looks real good. What did you use for the purple? I like that shade.

    That looks great. The paint application looks really smooth. I wish I hadn't passed on Classics Astrotrain when he was clogging the pegs in my area. Nice job.

    You mean, HASBRO's factory release. I have both versions. I don't have a problem with his chrome, as it's only the thrusters on the back of the Space shuttle, and it's purple. That being said, This does look really nice.

    Oh no I am not saying there is a problem with it. Just my preferance not to have any "*Bling*" on my classics. Though the vac. chrome did start peeling off my RID megatron.



    And Thanks guys.
