    Eh, I do kinda like the colors. Not that I have much of a choice, but still, they have been growing on me.

    As for an Astrotrain repaint? Sure! Bring it on too! :)

    So what kind of train will Astrotrain get, Sentinel prime has a long Bullet train like alt mode, but some of it is giving off and oldschool locomotive toward the front there?

    I'm hoping it is not a bullet train this time, his deluxe already covered that altmode, it would seem redundant to do it again?

    The Transmissions podcast rumors for this week just announced that there will be a Astrotrain remold/recolor of Sentinel Prime, not that anyone wasn't expecting that, but nice to hear from a reliable source.

    Cool. At least we have confirmation we're getting Astrotrain.
    I hope we see some in hand images of Sentinel and Galvatron soon. Sentinel's transformation looks interesting, and I just want to see more Galvatron.

    Astrotrain will have a new head at the very least. Hope that it gets more than that though.

    Speaking about Sentinel Prime, I hope that Takara gives him the G1 treatment. I don't really care for G1 accuracy but different tones of blue should be better than orange.

    Me too, a g1 cartoon colorscheme would be awesome on this guy, and maybe a new head from a third party company. And then i can quit repurposing Energon Landmine as my G1 Sentinel Prime :)

    Hey, now that I think about it, Landmine/Landshark are indeed a good repurposed Sentinel Prime in vehicle mode at least.

    Still, I tend to prefer new characters so I guess I can keep my Landshark as he is.

    Wouldn't painting him in G1 color scheme just be an homage? I thought homages were the thing they did before the Classics line, when they realized that they could also just sell the G1 characters as G1 characters instead of homages. But I would be at least interested to see how that looks, although I like how he looks. But I would really prefer if he would look more like in the comics. Than I would probably buy him without thought. Sentinel Prime in Apex armor looks killer.

    True, but it's the closest we'll ever come to getting an actual G1 toon SP toy.
    I like how he looks too, Titan Wars is gonna give Cybertronian alt-modes a lot of love, so i'm sure to buy every mold at least once :) 
    Perfect Effect or Fansproject are bound to get on an Apex Armor Upgrade sooner or later, wich will be awesome.

    I hope if someone does apex armour for this guy it turns in to booster rockets for the shuttle and extra cars for the train.

    So assuming that TFCC will end up with this mold in 2017, and Hasbro is already doing it as Astrotrain, what would you most want to see from it? I've seen suggestions as or could think of:

    1. Energon Omega Supreme
    2. Galaxy Shuttle
    3. Shouki
    4. Skystalker
    5. Machtackle
    6. Blast Master

    You mean Omega Spreem? The Action Master doesn't have the "u" in its name.

    But given the similarities to Omega Supreme with Sentinel Prime as-is, I can already predict an Omega Spreem themed exclusive at some point down the line. In fact, an entire Botcon themed to Action Masters would be kind of hilarious.

    Definitely Omega Supreme.

    I don't know why they just don't do a Action Masters only set....it'd be perfect and fit a specific niche/theme that makes sense and is less random.
