    Is Sunstreaker just a re-release? Seems strange to see him pop up again (re-releases aren't often much of a big deal).

    Shame, was hoping it was news on a + release with just a placeholder image. :(

    Oh wow... I didn't realize what Astrotrain looked like, with that blank grey plastic on his torso (is that paint?) and the battle damage, that's actually a figure I've lost interest in.

    Opposite here. Every pic I see of Astrotrin makes me more excited to finally get it. It's so deliciously G1.

    Seeing a Phase EX for something on February 2020. Anyone know what that says? It might just be Seacon related and nothing new.

    It's about the transformers knowledge exam being held in Osaka and Tokyo in February.

    Yep. I love that Astrotrain. I understand (as with Shockwave) why people are upset at the price as a leader class, but I think it’s about as good of an Astrotrain as I could imagine.

    Does that foreshadow anything or it's just for fun? (Still waiting on that darn Armada Optimus Prime.)

    Juuuuust fun I'm afraid. And all participants get some (kinda lame) exclusive gifts. Entry is like 60 or 70 dollars so a bit too rich for my blood. Would've loved to give it a go if it were cheaper.

    I'm sure we'll get some news regarding Armada Prime before the end of the year! Keep the faith!

    Why did Astrotrain go from a pleasant gray to a nasty milky white? Unfortunate.

    Don't be discouraged. It might actually be just lighting from the photography.

    Did they use the same colors as Hasbro or change it?  I\'m not sure with these scans.  Astrotrain\'s palette has been known to shift between companies.

    It looks like they were able to get the front of the launch pad to lay flush, can you see it there in the bottom left? YT Reviewers were saying that it's not able to lay flush, US images have also shown the same, nowhere except here have I seen it flush, what do you make of this?

    Cant wait for Astrotrain.

    I know he’s a voyager with a starter kit but that’s cool. Been having fun with Siege Shockwave’s extras so they’ve paid off.
