    This mold is my least favorite of all the legends triplechangers. He needs an update bad.

    Oooh, thanks for the link I just grabbed another one of these. Out of all the Astrotrain toys from Legends to MP this is still my favorite (specifically the black/white JP deco). The solid construction, ease of transformation and overall look of each mode has kept this a permanent desk toy since it first came out. Even though Astrotrain is far from my favorite character, this figure has gotten so much action that it’s starting to get a little loose and a second backup copy will be good to have.

    Thanks very much! I was hoping you wouldn't say a US retailer - for us in the UK the shipping is almost the cost of the figure itself!

    And yet, because I've had a bee in my bonnet about this one for a while, I'm still tempted...

    Got my MS20B from Toy Dojo. Seems like the original release to me, the box and contents are identical to the one I already have. Was hoping it was the reissue (which wasn’t actually confirmed in the B&W colors) that comes with the power suit but nope.

    No biggie, it was a second Astrotrain I was after more than the power suit so its all good.

    Also, what ever happened to the KO of this? I think it came with a tender and maybe a couple targetmaster guys? Did I imagine that?

    Was that the Thomas KO? I think the old fancy cell astrotrain had that too... been a while tho, might be wrong.

    It was probably canceled because nobody noticed it existed. :lol

    Just got mine!

    Got it because I figured that it would scale well with the Dr.Wu EW line, and I think it really works well!

    Nice, similar to Blitzwing, a few things should have been considered, mostly for the weapons storage and such, but aside having to put some drops to tighten the leg's balljoints, the rest of the figure is solid.

    Another that Hasbro could have purchased the plans, upsize it do a few tweaks to make this better (wrist rotation and such) and they'd have had a perfect version.

    Edit: a few more pictures
