After the latest addition to the Seibertron.com toy galleries (which you can find again over here) we have another Voyager triple changer from the Transformers Titans Return toyline ready for you to start the week in style: Astrotrain, with his Titan Master Darkmoon! Using the same mold as Sentinel Prime, Astrotrain has his space train, space ship, and space robot modes but with the traditional grey and purple deco, with dabs of red and yellow. Check out the images below, click on any to view the full galleries, and see what you think of this new version of a simple triple changer from 1985 - by letting us know in the Energon Pub!

Am I the only one who just realized that he more grey than white?

He's not white at all. He should be gray. The Takara "NASA" version was white and black instead of gray and purple, as were the subsequent reissues, and the Classics Astrotrain. The Henkei, e-Hobby, Generations, and G1 prototype versions of Astrotrain sported the darker gray (instead of light gray) and purple.

And for those of you following the comics, I updated Alpha Trion's gallery per the request of some of the Seibertron.com staff:

I didn't think he was white.

I really look forward to Astrotrain. The whole of wave 2 is a gold mine for me

Since the upcoming TR Megatron is my favourite figure of him (in terms of looks) so far I was going to use him as my classics Megatron. This did create a dilemma for me though since TR Blitzwing is, obviously, going to be a slight retool of him and hence they'd look too alike next to each other.

Soooo I was considering Thrilling 30 Blitzwing instead but I was swithering on it due to the bad things I'd heard and wasn't sure on how he looks. But seeing him here next to Astrotrain really sells it for me; they look so good with each other and I think I'm all on board now :D

As an owner of said Blitzwing, it is a good figure. Yes it has its flaws, but I like it and it will be my Blitzwing.

If you follow the instructions you can find online to fix Blitzwing, he holds together amazingly well. I made the fixes to him when I first got him and have never had a problem with him since.

I've heard differing things about the fixes; some people get em to work perfectly, for others it doesn't work out at all. In any case if it's just used for display purposes it shouldn't be too bad.

Yeah, he's not one I fiddle with a lot, and I am nervous about making modifications, so I really never have save for some sharpie on AoE figures

Those purple panels near the front and back of the train mode should be flipped down. They have sculpted train wheels on them.

Indeed, I was going to point this out too. The galleries look so awesome, and I know they are a lot of work, so I didn't know how to gently suggest this. (Must be either my Minnesota nice or Catholic guilt coming out... :-s )

[edit] Looks like it was missed on Sentinel too.

One of the reasons I wanted the SDCC version was the painted gold (yellow) on all sets of wheels...

Wish someone had said that about Sentinel Prime last month. That's alright, I'll get it right on the SDCC version hopefully!

I had not noticed it then since I only aquired the figure after the galleries were up.

Great gallery as always!

Also I held off on thrilling 30 Blitzwing because of the issues with him and being selective also. Since stopping my Jurassic Park collecting as the JW line was poor quality I might try to get Blitz and this new Astrotrain. Definitely liking the photos with them together.

Astrotrain's stand alone train mode pics have been fixed. I left the comparison mode pics as were. In order to see the new pics, you might have to force a refresh in your browser.

And per Hellscream's request, pics of Astrotrain with Apeface's head have been added, which can be viewed toward the end of the gallery by clicking on the image below.

Oh wow Apeface looks gorgeous on Astrotrain. =P~ I'm also getting the Meagtron version of the mold and hopefully at some point getting the Thrilling 30 Blitzwing. That's my plan anyway.

How does Clobber look on Astrotrain?


I'm thinking of doing a digibash by changing the purple on Astro to Grimlock yellow/gold.
