Just in from the #SDCC2019 from Autobase Aichi are some great images of Astrotrain in robot mode, his vehicle mode, and his (proper) train tender in its various modes. You can see it housing a store of large weapons in tender mode and converted into a nice rocket base for his shuttle mode.

And by base I don't mean a launchpad, no, I mean an armed fully stretched out rocket base. There are two grey components on the floor beside Astrotrain that look almost as though they could be height increasing boots, but even if his extra parts don't turn into a full suit of armor ala Shockwave a full rocket base more than makes up for it. This would also be a new way of utilizing a leader classes extra component pieces we haven't seen yet in the Siege line.

Enjoy the views and stay tuned to Seibertron for your up to date #SDCC2019 news!

If anyone is at SDCC and sees a Hasbro rep or John Warden, can you please ask if there is any chance that we might get a Star Saber figure?

You guys are killin’ me! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I love that we have the smallest scale Primus up against the biggest ever Unicron. It’s not about size man it’s just not.

Actually I'm not convinced that are compatible with the TR titans and bases. Look at the photo of the tender on its side. The spacing doesn't look even between all the tabs, and the bumps or nubs in some of the gaps look too large for the TR connectors. Hell the bumps/nubs on the TR connectors are too large for themselves in some configurations and these look much larger to me. Could certainly be the angle in the photo, but something just looks slightly off to me as compared to the TR connectors.

Asteotraon looks infinitely better here than before. The alt modes look fantastic now, the weapon storage is awesome, and that rock base! I am loving it!

And to think I just bought Legends Astrotrain. Ah well. Siege one got some nice extras like the launch pad but my collection only has room for one Astrotrain. >:oP

Why wouldnt they be? They went out ofvtheir way last Convention to show us that Supreme has the Base Connectors, why would thry go put of their way to give Astrotrain something that definately looka like them and isnt?

I think I'll stick with grabbing Lancer from Amazon when she pops up there.

Looking at it more closely, I think that is just literally a picture of Thundercracker. Not only does it have the red details, but you can see TC's black forearms. The robot mode pic is actually Ion Storm though.

In general everything is slightly looser but not detrimentally so. The chest hinge is much tighter and requires intentional force to remove now. My camera doesn’t pick it up but these guys are gaudy as all hell and I can’t help but love it. If you like the seeker mold and neon colors you’ll LOVE this, and even then you can wait until thundercracker or skywarp if these don’t win you over.

You know looking at the rainmakers like that, if you added Starscream and skywarp you'd have the Seeker Sentai ;)

Is it definitely Siege though? He'll have to be a small deluxe to scale properly, so I'm more inclined to believe he could be part of the next line.
