    Yeah so not a great disguise because it's also a STEAM engine...which doesn't stand out at all? XD Hell, even in 1984 a steam engine anywhere was rare. NOW it's next to impossible outside a train museum or preserved railways in a large park. You can't always put believably and logic on a Transformers toy. It just don't work all the time. There's nothing believable about a big purple steam locomotive driving around these days. The only reason he has that for his third mode rather than a bullet or diesel train is because that's what he had back in G1. The "tender" doesn't make it stand out any less, lol.

    I'm running out of brain to figure what's new or not, and these may just be complete collections, but....

    Crosshairs DaimChoc Reports - ダイムチョック・リポーツ

    Spinister DaimChoc Reports - ダイムチョック・リポーツ

    Astrotrain DaimChoc Reports - ダイムチョック・リポーツ

    EDIT: A quick scan of Astrtrain's indicates it's the images from earlier this week plus the ones in the first post.

    As yet no Apeface in this style.

    You know Crosshairs' gun is out already? Packed in the G2 Sideswipe set under a different name.

    Ditto Spinister's Hairsplitter and Scourge's Fracas in the Skywarp box

    The measurements are incorrect or is Astro train a deluxe? Or Spinister a Voyager? Huh?

    Ignoring the already stated fact that he moves via Cybertronian fuel and technology, I would just like to point out that knowledge of steam trains really isn't essential knowledge in the modern world! In fact I'd say that the for vast majority on this board their biggest exposure to steam trains was Astrotrain. And let's face it, his fuel supply is the least reality defying aspect about him!

    The ones with a black background do seem to have come from the same time. Spinister is missing paint apps from his shoulders/deltoids and on the lines at the top corners of his chest. In the SDCC painted prototypes he also paint on his tail but I suspect Lynsey Bernier has been removing paint apps one by one for cost reasons. I'm desperate to see packaged pictures to see the final paint apps.

    I think these are new

    I think crosshairs really makes this mold pop. But I'm not overly fond of the mold. I have Ironhide and despite my overall joy of having an Ironhide his alt is just boring. I don't know though, I really like those colors.

    Side Note I've been on the fense with Astrotrain not sure about the headsculpt. We didn't get any real close ups like Spinister....so I threw together some shots.

    D_t-JlTU0AAlILp~2.jpg 69540672_974919309525163_1220860169173336064_n~2.jpg 70138062_974919319525162_8567994726525960192_n~2.jpg

    I think the new shot gave us the best look at him. I might buy now.

    Edit:
    Bbts had the head shot:

    I don't have room for a real leader...
    I hope he's not much bigger than Springer, because now he's a definite purchase.

    Nothing really new there if you consider siege shockwave and the recent dotm optimus. Accessories being included with a voyager seems to be the thing of late wuth hasbro.

    So yeah lol

    The more I see Astrotrain, the more excited I am getting for him. I love both modes and I am really happy they are going for a more cartoon accurate color scheme instead of the white / purple of the toy. For leader price, I do wish he was a bit bigger but I do like the extra little accessory he has that becomes a weapon storage box/launch pad/train car. I picked up the Titans Return Astrotrain but he is definitely getting replaced after this guy hits.

    Crosshairs is also looking pretty good. I liked the mold as Ratchet and Ironhide but I was not sure if I was going to get it again but it's hard to say no to that color scheme. It really makes the mold shine. Spinster is also looking pretty good so I'll get him and pair him with his Targetmaster from the Siege Skywarp set. Now we just need to see some more Apeface pics.

    I actually think Trenchfoot with all the black paint makes a better stand-in for Spoilsport than Pinpointer, but the fact that he's a repaint of Blowpipe/Caliburst makes Trenchfoot's gun barrel all wrong for either.

    But there are the Takara Legends versions who each look the part, that's what I'm going to use.

    Dammit Seige, how am I going to save money for 3P stuff when you keep being so good!

    Okay, Springer and Astrotrain. I promised myself I wouldn't go crazy after my last purging. This is so hard. That beautiful moment before Seige when cyberverse was all they had. That was a good time for resisting.

    Yeah, it would be nice if we could actually see the figure, in person, to help make our decision, but Hasbro will probably be shipping all of their figures in plain cardboard boxes, by then.
