Profile: Astrotrain revels in the confusion he is able to cause as a TripleChanger. Flashing between robot, locomotive and space shuttle modes almost instantaneously, he is an expert at picking out the moment of utter perplexity in his opponent’s eyes. It’s at that moment that Astrotrain strikes without mercy. The fact that Astrotrain’s prey doesn’t have any idea what hit them is particularly pleasing to the murderous Decepticon. The idea that his victim’s last thoughts were a tangle of feat and panic keeps Astrotrain happy when performing his more mundane tasks, such as transport between battles.

Abilities: As a TripleChanger, Astrotrain is able to change between three alternate modes at almost twice the speed of an average Transformer. As a space shuttle, Astrotrain can achieve, under his own power, planetary orbit, where he can attain a maximum speed of more than 20,000 mph. He can launch weapons and satellites while in orbit, and carry other cargo as well. When traveling through space he can achieve speeds greater than 50,000 mph and, with sufficient energon, is capable of interstellar flight. As a train, his top speed on rail is 400 mph and he has a range of 2700 miles. In robot mode he has great strength and carries a powerful ionic displacer rifle, which destroys by disrupting molecular bonds in metal alloys with its beam.

Weaknesses: Astrotrain is prone to mechanical breakdowns as a train in his wheel assemblies. As a space shuttle his communications systems often fail him while re-entering the atmosphere.
