Say hi to (LEGO) Railrazor, Astrotrain's twin brother

Postby alanyap » Sun Oct 09, 2016 11:03 pm

Railrazor is a twin brother to Astrotrain. It was known that both of them signed up for Shockwave's triple changer experiment to enhance their abilities in battle. However, sensing his benevolent spark slowly eroded by this experiment, he escaped Shockwave's lab but failed to save Astrotrain from the same fate , as his escape was quickly discovered by Shockwave. He lived as a fugitive ever since in the depths of Cybertron (and sometimes flew above radar detection as a space shuttle (with stealth mode activated).

Million of years later, after a long search, Railrazor arrived on Earth after sensing Astrotrain's presense here. However, he crash landed in Japan and assumed a bullet train mode. The partially completed triple changer experiment back in Cybertron prevented him from scanning a second earth-like mode to replace his Cybertronian shuttle mode.

Trivia

This project /Transformer remained nameless for 2 months before I decided on "Railrazor".
It's my habit to build the robot head last, so I was worried how I can cram in the head with my current design. Thanks to google I discovered something called pantograpth. :)
The weaponized train mode for the middle segment was incidental. There were some hollowed space inside the train. While not cram in a few weapons inside to be flipped out, I'd thought. :)
The final color scheme was undecided until I referred to my available hinged bricks.I have much more blue and black of these hinged bricks compared to other color.
I blew 2 balljoint socket bricks from constant test-transforming him between modes. RIP dear bricks.
The wheels used here are "faux" train wheels made from 2x2 round plates with axle hole. They're not compatible with LEGO train tracks obviously.

Geez, dude, from a full combiner team to a triple-changer that becomes an entire train? When will it end? And seriously, where were you when they were designing Kre-o?

Its definitely not gonna end especially when it comes to triple changers and combiners :)

My to-build list is growing each month . If only I have the time to tackle em all.

Every time something official pops out (like Titans Astrotrain)... it spurred to me make something similar using LEGO . I think I'm gonna attempt a Broadside soon after feeling dissapointed seeing the recently revealed Titans version . He deserved a decent plane mode on top (not pun intended) of his aircraft carrier mode. Same like how I felt (hasbro) Astrotrain deserved a realistic looking train mode.

I hope some 3rd party company comes out with an upgrade kit for his train mode like some did for CW OP.

By the way, have you made Bumblebee yet? Or maybe Megatron?

Nope and nope. I think Bee (along with Prime) had been done to death by many (LEGO) builders out there, with good results too. I might attempt Megatron one day :)

So true. :lol:

Maybe you could try the Autobot Headmasters. Highbrow in particular would be awesome.
