    Yes, I'm curious if they are just trying to decide what scale and detail level will fit onto the physical toy. Fingers crossed it's not just a giant sticker/tampo.

    I LOVE the size! Machine Boy, please add the necessary curves to the space shuttle mode.

    And make the cockpit flow seamlessly with the rest of the figure. The large bump/discontinuity behind the window didn't look great on the G1 toy, and now you have more size to move/hide parts and have 30 years of improved technology to work with.

    It's a definite buy if shuttle mode is improved!!

    I'm loving this locomotive mode, chunky G1 style with correct 8-coupled wheels. Sux about the dual gauge discrepancy though. The addition of a tender is a great idea and adds to the realism. Quite like the robot mode too, looks the most G1 out of the three 3P efforts. Not really digging the squared-off shuttle mode though. The Space Shuttle has a distinctive nose and cab shape, so far only Evilastar captures it closely enough.
    As an Astrotrain fan, I need this though, to add to the Trainformers Cloud of Smoke(tm).

    It was AFT (All Fun Toys). I have that Alpha Trion, and it's one of the best 3P figures I own, for me it was worth every penny. Hope this is in the same league, QC wise.

    This looks amazing, but just like the aforementioned Alpha Trion is too rich for my blood. If these guys were $80 they'd be bought no questions asked.

    Looks fantastic. Now if we get an oversized KO it'll sell like hotcakes.

    This looks great!
    The best robot mode and locomotive mode for me.
    Alas that shuttle mode loses out to ToyWorld's Evilastar. Although the satellite deployment and arm feature go a long way to making amends!
    What happens to the loco's tender though? I can't work out what it does in robot or shuttle modes. If it was some kind of mobile repair bay or gun turret (like Ratchet or Ironhide had) that would be a super cool accessory.

    Damn, I had pretty much written this one off after getting ToyWorld's, but it looks fantastic.

    They didn't try very hard. Just the G1 toy with some more articulation.
