    Are there going to be any itty-bitty stickers that come with this, like with the JustiToys Dinobots, or will there be any paint aps on the b/w one? I know the G1 b/w Astrotrain wasn't exactly awash in color, but this WST version looks really...naked.

    That aside, it looks nice.

    It's taken from the function of Generation 1 Astrotrain, which was Military Transport, referencing how he used his two modes to transport troops and munitions IIRC.

    Military Transport is his function they can't use the name Astrotrain because Hasbro has it. & it is because he is a Military warrior & he transports any decepticons in either mode.

    The wait continues.

    As far as a military transport goes: Shuttles launch Satellites. Trains are vital for transporting, on land, munitions, food and other materials to military bases.

    I just love how this was supposed to be the stocking stuffer for TFsource for Christmas last year and will be lucky to see it in time for Christmas this year.

    I do love the WSTs and I am all for Justitoys making them so long as the quality stays where it has been with its other WST releases, but seriously, why does this take a freaking year to produce? The design is virtually the same as G1 with very few changes made, all they had to do was scale it down and get that sucker out. What the hell is taking so long? Seriously??? I paid for this back in December of last year, why do I not have it yet?

    He's certainly got the extending arms that poor G1 Astrotrain was denied! I've noticed WST Blaster and Shockwave have more articulation than their G1 selves because the shoulders/elbows etc are often swapped for simpler ball joints.

    For the colour scheme, although I prefer toon-accuracy most of the time, I always liked how a white shuttle can turn into a black train. The original toy/toon colours lost that wow-factor somewhat by mixing and matching colours in both modes.

    Anybody have any ideas for an alter ego character for this white Astrotrain? Seeing as how With the three colors of the original, maybe we should whip up some bios for these guys. Maybe a faction swap? Hmmm.
