    I was super disappointed by Generations Blitzwing. He just feels so... Thin. And the headsculpt(s). Yikes.

    I went back and forth and back and forth on their Chigurh (not astrotrain) and finally decided I just couldn't get with the lack of purple on the shuttle nose. In robot mode he's incredibly cartoon accurate (barring the feet,) but it just wasn't quite there for me. MPs are the only place I'm picky, and it wasn't quite there for me.

    Sadly, neither was Toy World's Evila-Star which, while a GREAT representation of the G1 TOY, wasn't cartoon accurate enough for me either.

    All of that to say: I would LOVE a Blitzwing, but it needs to be closer to the cartoon than their not-Astrotrain was before I'll bite. Glad people are making triple changers now, though. Let the triple changer arms race commence! Sooner or later everyone will end up with something that trips their trigger.

    Will wait and see how this turns out, but I will say thats an awesome promo poster. Much better than generic silhouette #24451245

    I hope they get this right for masterpiece sake. There Astrotrain just doesn't qualify for masterpiece for me.

    Make that a lot closer.

    Yup, let the race to an MP(ish) Blitzwing begin. I stress "MP(ish)", because the current Astrotrain candidates aren't looking very "MP" to me, unfortunately :(

    Octane has already been revealed.

    I keep bouncing on and off the fence for Astrotrain. I have a feeling he'll end up on clearance and I'll jump then. If not I'm sure we'll see more versions. A Fanstoys or XTB version could be slavishly good.

    They look like aircraft carriers. BROADSIDES maybe? lol. He would have to be huge though. Looks like they may go after all the TC's in MP.

    That's UT's Provider, right? Are DX9 and UT the same outfit? As in, if UT is releasing a Provider/Octane, DX9 won't piss in the same pond?

    Yeah, none of the 3P triplechangers so far are floating my boat. I'd be down for the "slavishly good" G1 MP versions.
