We can share for you our first in hand images of the next installment in the War For Cybertron: Siege Leader class size: Astrotrain.
This figure proves to be very detailed in locomotive mode which really looks like the old G1 steam locomotive. It also has a rear car that can be taken apart.
The Space Shuttle mode is nice in the front with some battle damage applications. This mode does not look as integrated and solid as the locomotive mode, but we understand some sacrifices have to be made in triple-changer toys. The rear car can be used as a launch base here.
Finally, the robot mode is where Astrotrain really shines. A very detailed and G1 inspired design with a good posability. The rear car can be integrated as a backpack (not like an armor like other Siege Leader class toys), and 2 pieces of it can be placed in Astrotrain’s feet to make him a bit taller. The weapons can be combined in a kick-ass rifle.
For those fans worried about scale, we also have some nice comparison shots next to Deluxe Impactor, Leader Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime and Commander Jetfire.
Check out all the images, as well as a video review, after the jump. Was this new Astrotrain what you were expecting? Let us know your impressions on the ongoing discussion on the 2005 Boards!
