Astrotrain first appeared in season 2 and was a part of Megatron's forces on Earth. Although typically a secondary character, Astrotrain was a main player in two episodes.

Leading an army of drone-like locomotives, he was defeated and forced to return command to Megatron at gunpoint.

Item arrived well packaged, though customs delayed its arrival. Astrotrain itself was a pleasure to add to my Transformers Classic collection, and even though this is the Henkei version not the Classic version, it fits in excellantly having a colour scheme more reminiscent of the cartoon than the Classics white version.

The vehicle modes do leave a bit to be desired in terms of realism in the rear half of both train and shuttle mode. Yet if you imagine his train mode as simply being a Cybertronian military transport rather than an Earth high-speed passenger train, it doesn't pose much a detraction.

In robot mode, despite looking a bit skinny, Astrontrain is splendorous and really matches the cartoon incarnation. The ease of transformation means you don't need the instructions after initial use, and his poseability is great, especially as the shuttle-modes front wheels act as stabilisers in robot mode allowing him to keep balance.

Overall i'd rate 4/5, the only detractions being the said lack of realism of the rear parts of both vehicle modes - otherwise a great addition to any collection.
