    Looks good, but if you are going to do those colors, might as well paint the head:

    Grey/silver face
    Purple helmet
    Yellow around the trapezoid bit on the forehead

    well... Toyworld is not known for doint repaints... of all their figures they've only did one repaint of TW-02 Orion & TW-02B Orionvil... thats it.


    I actually believe there will be knockoffs of different paint jobs...

    I'm pretty much I'm the same boat. I don't have this in the budget, not interested in the character, but that transformation and engineering is very beguiling. That's what has made TW a favorite company for me. Their figures generally seem to have very smart transformations.

    And the purple panels on the side of the shuttle mode, I love the colors as-is, better than any digibashes. They did well.

    And they repainted grant into infinitor. They've done a few obvious ones. That's enough for me to think they'll get around to repainting this guy, too, even if it takes a year.

    Yep!

    But idk about an exclusive.. Hard to say but grant was a total surprise to most of us until tf con. Then infinitor went up after. I'd say it's a safe bet since this wasn't a secret that if a second deco is coming it'll be retail. At least I hope!

    This recolor is great. Not sure why they would go with toy color when this is SO much better.

    I saw someone post a pic with the tail fin put away in bot mode. Is there anyway to fan mode leg/foot stubs? Does the lower leg below the knee rotate like the Classics toy?

    I'd guess because of his appearances in IDW. That recolor is awesome though.

    With the shuttle wings now properly transformed thanks to the tip from MegaMoonMan the shuttle mode on mine is rock solid.

    I'm loving this guy. So complicated and yet doesn't feel frustrating except for maybe the shuttle tail fin that I am struggling to get in and out of the chest compartment without the use of a tool.

    The guns won't peg into mine in shuttle mode but oh well.

    Mine won't either, the holes are WAY too big for the guns. Not sure how that could have made it past the design phase. No big deal, though. Not a difficult fix.

    After watching the review for the other Astrotrain...I think I like this one the best, but alas, with a trip next month and my having to pay for my car registration means I'll have to hold off on this.
