Yes, a tinder. Thanks.
Like I said, "seems". That word you say when you're uncertain. ;-)
just saying that by all indications he doesn't have armor and instead has a massive combining gun (based on info from the press release) but we wont definitively know till sdcc
Did Warden not say that the Leader class gimmick for Siege will be 'armor-up'?
Granted, we still don't know for a *fact* that Astrotrain is definitively in WFC1, I'll give you that, but Warden's word is what I was going with.
i dont think he ever actually said that, i think that is people taking something out of context or putting their own spin on it, like when all the chicken littles said hasbro was going to end direct sales because the brand specific websites were being shut down due to being redundant. but if you could provide an interview where he states that every leader in siege will have armor then i will happily be proven wrong. also astrotrain in siege, he ships with a repack of magnus, unless theyre gonna ship figures from 2 separate lines together
Well I remember watching the interview and filing that in my mind. Posts suggest that it's from SDCC 2018, but I can't find the interview. So believe what you want about it, I suppose. =/
And those five weapons are likely pieces that help flesh out his train (or shuttle) mode beyond what they were able to do with the Transformation available.
It's "tender", with an "E".

A Tinder Train is an entirely different kind of fun
I’m gonna pretend you didn’t say that
nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope
Don't you love when the wooden train you're in catches on fire?
I don't think that's the kind of wood he had in mind.
The Coal car (tinder) and the weapons are separate things. You can see 4 weapons covering the train mode.
Im going to guess that the coal car can also attach to Astro's rear filling out the back half of the shuttle ...with a bigger tail fin and in bot mode it will give him shoulder pads and his chest fin.
If Siege Astrotrain isn't an armoured-up Voyager of Siege Magnus heft (or if his armoured-up form looks balls) then this thread has reminded me to check out 3P Masterpiece scale. Chigurh's greebling would actually go quite well with the Siege aesthetic.
Spinister... YEEEESSSSSS!! I can finally complete my Scavengers. I am also liking Crosshairs. I made a mock up using the Titans Return Orion Pax with Swoop’s head but an official version is much appreciated.
i did the same except with the clobber/grimlock head
Can I ask what you have for Crankcase and Fulcrum?
I have Krok, Misfire and Grimlock so far.
I use that guy from Power Core Combiners for Fulcrum. I actually misspoke when I said I had them all though because I only sort of have Crankcase. I got a 3D printed head from shapeways which I’ve never gotten around to painting which I had planned to attach to Combiner Wars Trailbreaker’s body but I never did. I’d love it if Crankcase got a legit figure, though.
What about using potp roadtrap as crankcase? I think there’s even a reprolabels set for that
