    Just received this earlier today from Robot Kingdom. I will leave it to more professional reviewers for a more detailed description, but overall I am really impressed by it. I've never had the G1 version, but this one has diecast, particularly on the front part of the train.

    Do not pull out too hard on the arm/elbow, it will pop off, but you can simply pop it back on.

    Last but not least, I am not a good photographer, but after all this time waiting, I'd like to share some proof that it does exist :)

    They had a pre-order for it a while back, but, I can't find any listing for it now. Even looking under Justitoys came up with 0.

    Sweet, looks good. I got the shipping notice for mine earlier today. Does he come with stickers?

    There's another thread around here somewhere, and someone that e-mailed TFSource stated they either had theirs in soon or were getting them in soon (I forget which off the top of my head), so hopefully the b/w versions will be shipped out soon as well.

    I ordered one of these from Robotkingdom a few days ago. I paid via Paypal. I haven't heard anything since then. Shouldn't I have least gotten a confirmation e-mail by now? For those who have gotten a shipping notice recently, when did you place your order? I'm getting a bit concerned - I have never ordered from Robotkingdom before.

    I ordered mine from RK back in October. They usually send a confirmation within a few days. If your worried, just shoot them an e-mail. They're trustworthy guys.
    Oh yeah, I got my shipping confirmation two days ago.

    Yes he does come with stickers. Here's a photo showing a size comparison between him and WST Shockwave (I also got him on the same shipment).

    Blimey, he's a bit, er, big isn't he? Not sure I want WST Astrotrain towering over all the other WSTs...

    Can anyone do a pic of him with the WST Dinobots? I'd like to see if they are the same size.

    Got mine today - this is my first WST from Just It Toys and first time ordering from Robotkingdom. I came away impressed with both. Very happy with my purchase.

    The arms are cool - now I finally have an Astrotrain that can extend his arms just like the prototype in the old Transformers catalogs. Not sure why Hasbro couldn't have done this in the first place.

    Man, judging by the artwork on the box, Astrotrain took a beating from someone or something. He looks exhausted. Cool art though.

    Got a question for those who already have one - the last page of the instruction booklet has a map of where to put custom stickers. For exampe one of the custom stickers would be the red stripe that goes on the locomotive. Can those stickers be created from the leftover decal sheet? There looks to be enough red left over to make those stripes. Or does somebosy make custom stickers for WST? Just curious.

    If you had a preorder with TFSource, they've begun to ship out.

    So did I! My gray and purple one from Robot Kingdom is still in customs, but hopefully he'll arrive by week's end.
