    Still not liking him!

    Anyone interested in buying just Astrotrain from me? I only bought him for the 4 Mini-cons.:lol 

    edit: I'm kidding about selling my Astrotrain, no more PMs please.

    I'm not a fan of the huge Decepticon symbol. Sady, I have to pass. I just emailed Angie this morning about the Airrazor.

    Still doesn't make sense to me. Astrotrain has no one to combine with.

    I agree. Seems to me that people would flock to Micromaster reissues for the Classics line. Especially if they did some of the larger, harder to find sets.
    I'm hoping the next set of exclusives takes care of that problem.

    I can't afford the club membership, much less these guys. But if I could, I would have been all over them. I've loved the color scheme since we first saw Spacewarp, and the Mini-Cons look good, especially the submarine. In fact the only thing I don't really like (aside from the price) is Astrotrain's face. His eyes are too big and he looks surprised. The rest of his head is sculpted nicely.

    Dude, it's symbolism. As a space shuttle, he transports other Transformers (in this case, Mini-Cons) through space. He's a space train. An Astrotrain, if you will.

    Am I the only person that got the connection immediately? This has come up several times in the past, hasn't it?

    You're right. It has. In the other guy's defense, though: Train does not equal "transport." For something to be a "train," it needs to be connected in a series. This does not apply to this "Astrotrain."

    HOWEVER, neither does it properly apply to the original Astrotrain, which is a locomotive engine, which is often PART of a train, but is not properly a train on its own.

    But locomotive engines have been called "trains" for years, so the original Astrotrain is a "train" in the sense of common usage in a way that does not apply to the club exclusive.


    Having said all that, this isn't actually a big hang-up for me. I pre-ordered mine about a month ago, and look forward to getting it! :)

    I actually dig that part! I think he has one awesome coloring job all around. I also like that he can put other bots inside of him.
