    Hmmmmm, good question. Let's look.

    Blitzwing
    1. Jet
    2. Tank
    3. "Come on down, Autobrat!"


    Astrotrain
    1. Steam-engine train
    2. Space shuttle
    3. "Astrotrain....take OFF!"


    I gotta go with Astrotrain. I really like both his alt modes, and the dichotomy between them, actually. Plus - he basically saved the Decepticons' ASSES in the movie.


    Did I really just use "dichotomy" in a post?

    blitzwing why you ask thats simple

    he turns into a tank and a jet so he can kill in both modes

    and animated blitzwing just brought so much character to the character

    Astrotrain struck a chord in me, perhaps because he turns into a space shuttle.

    Astrotrain convinced a population he was a god and made a squad of train drones, but Blitzwing defied Galvatron and threatened to splatter an underling's brains all over the walls, which is pretty damn hardcore for a 80s kids cartoon. I'd say Astrotrain is better purely because steam locomotive and space shuttles are far less common alt modes than tanks and jets.

    Hmmm....

    As far as my personal favorite is concerned, it is Blitzwing, because that was the one I had as a kid, but Astrotrain is cool too.

    Blitzwing has a better made toy. Astrotrains G1 toy suffered so.

    Astrotrain for better alt modes.
    An old train,which was original in the series, and then a gigantic space shuttle.

    Then,in season 2 he had the glorious and infamous role :lol  (in "The gambit"has a quote towards it) to carry Decepticons all over universe.

    Blitzwing.

    This is one character that needs to come back.
