LG40 Astrotrain Series – Legends Size/class - Voyager New/remould/redeco - Redeco of TR Astrotrain Released here – No Approximate Retail Price - $40 Approximate Size - 18cm Allegiance - Decepticon Alt-mode – Space Shuttle/Cybertronian Train Main Features/Gimmicks – Headmaster partner Main Colours – Dark Grey, Purple Main Accessories – gun, larger gun, Head Master Space Shuttle Mode Quite flat but certainly a nicely shaped shuttle. There are several options as to where you can place the guns, either on the sides or on the top (I go for the sides personally). Astrotrain’s Headmaster can sit in either the little cockpit at the back between the tailfins or can sit in one of the gun turrets on the side. They have at least coloured the windows of the cockpit, something that the Sentinel Prime figure was sorely lacking and from photos I’ve seen the TR version of Astrotrain suffers from this as well. Train Mode Looks like a Cybertronian train of some kind because I don’t think we have trains like this on earth, even in Japan. Like the shuttle version, the train’s windows have added colour here in order to highlight them and the gun ports on the top of the train have been coloured differently to the section (Astrotrains robot arms) that they protrude from. That and the overall colour scheme make this a far superior looking train to Sentinel Prime who looked like a bright red and orange stick. Robot Mode I think probably the best looking official Astrotrain toy we have ever had! Good articulation on all extremities, nicely poseable and a good paint job. I like how both his hand guns can join together to become one long rifle much like the G1 toy was sporting. He is of course a Headmaster and his Headmaster partner (whose name is actually Head Master - very original eh!) can come off and be replaced with any other Headmaster. A great gimmick for little kids and my son loves it, but for myself as a grown up fan I just want Astrotrain himself. Overall This is a great Astrotrain! Yes the shuttle mode is a tiny bit flat and bland and the train mode is a bit alien in appearance but taken as a whole all three modes work and work well. We needed a Voyager-sized Astrotrain for the Generations lineup and the Tak/Tom version with the cartoon-homaging paintjob is far better than the Titans Return version in my opinion. and I heartily recommend this figure to all fans of great characters who get stuck carrying their mates around all day.
