That would be stunning!
That's on the Stunticons being overly tall. Astrotrain is right-sized.
For sure. Looking at the original pic where AT is being held it looks about the perfect size.
Not going to begrudge anyone their hangups; Primus knows I've had my share of deal breakers on other figures that didn't seem to bother other people. But Thomas looks exactly how I expect Astrotrain to, and FT would really have to screw something up if the materials aren't better than Fancy Cell's. As long as the engineering isn't too bad I'm in.
Where’s all the preorders for this guy ? He’s not even listed anywhere .( Anywhere meaning BBTS , TCP , TJ .. )
I think this thing looks great. But personally, the grey colour scheme - even though cartoon accurate - is really dull and boring to me. I don't mean to try and kill other people's buzz, but that's just how it is to me. I'm really hoping for a repaint in the US/UK toy colours (below). I know some people are interested in a black and white repaint too, and each to their own opinion I say. But again, personally I think that will look bland as fuck as well. I would much rather see this awesome colour scheme on my shelf (below) - so much more life and nostalgia feels to it than a monochrome black and white version.
The Stunticon cars are way too big. Tis why I’m skipping em. Thomas looks friggin stunning. Hoping we get multiple colour versions of him. What a time to be alive.

Can't help but to admire the double-D's that G1 Astrotrain is sporting. I wonder if he's in need of support?
Hollywood and Viper are in the names list for dalianjj's first post for the Aerialbot thread. Most likely Hollywood is Slingshot and Viper is Fireflight. I don't keep the pictures like I used to so I cannot remember where I saw them or if I am partially going off a conversation dalianjj had with someone when he confirmed them when we saw the prototypes for Smokey and Bandit when they were revealed next to Roadking. This was around the time the renders for all of them were released for the combiners.
They've captured his face so perfectly; my fave FT sculpt since Phoenix.
I highly recommend the XTB ones if you feel that way.
the FT stunticons are the size they were in the cartoon. sunbow fucked up making astrotrain seeker height
Looks like we now know that the chest plate will just be attached by clip or friction as you can see one on the table in the background; unless thats a broken figure already.
It looks really good, it is really a shame the alt-modes are G1 accurate.
Why wouldn't they be? Its about time we actually get a G1 accurate mp Astrotrain!
I'm not so sure that's the chest plate in the background...
100% 3 of 4 down with FT Roadking. This has been a dream of mine since 1986. And so has a MP Astrotrain!
The train looks good except for the back thrusters and the "shuttle mode" doesn't look good at all. But That's the look FT was going for, so it's understandable.
That’s how he looked in the cartoon, and personally that’s what I wanted. I get how some might want fully realistic vehicles, but I’m fine with cartoon accurate.
