    Ooooh, I see a C&D order coming. These images are from the Japanese patent office website.

    Hmm... I think he's a Classic/Neo G1. He looks a bit too complex for a $15 Titanium figure. Plus, we've heard stuff about a Classic Astrotrain, but not a Titanium Astrotrain. At least, I don' t think we have.

    Either way, Astrotrain looks pretty kickass, though his bullet train mode is a little odd.

    If this is Neo G1 then I am very happy. Astrotrain looks unbelievably cool.

    Just when my interest in Transformers is on the wane... this comes along and I remember why I love them so much.

    If this is a sign of things to come from Neo G1, its gonna be a good year.

    *clank*

    The train nose is visible in shuttle mode but it actually looks passable in my opinion- its still aerodynamic and it looks like more cargo space for the (non licensed?) shuttle. It would be better without those parts though.

    The Robot Mode looks fantastic. This is a Deluxe, right?

    Holy crap that thing looks beautiful! I can't wait to see it with colour!!

    I've always been a huge fan of Astrotrain, and I'm super happy that we're finally getting a new REAL triple changer with 2 distinct alt modes (no more 1 and a half modes like Cybertron Megatron or Energon Scorponok etc.)

    This thing just made my day!

    You know, if Hasbro can threaten websites for having the name 'GI Joe HQ' or something... why can't they stop Tformers from posting pics that are not meant to be seen by the general public, ie, internal company images?

    OMFG that is so awesome. I love how they keep the same look of G1 but add additional details like elbow and knee joints. The bot mode is almost identical to G1 as well. Neo/Classic is gonna rock so much I can feel it. :rock  :rock  :rock

    Well, the train mode is by no means perfect, but this is the best multi-changer we've ever gotten (in the sense that the alternate mode actually resemble something). I wish he were a mega, but otherwise this mold is damn near perfect.

    This Astrotrain is nothing but greatness. This G1 Neo line is going to rock.

    Yup that's astrotrain alright and he is looking good. The train mode is a little weak in all one color, I think it will look much better when they get some paint on it! Can not wait for this new line. It will be awesome I think.
