One last Siege update before Cybertron reaches this solar system in Earthrise! Today we look at Leader Class Astrotrain, a triple changer space choo choo which will also be releasing in Earthrise packaging. He was a late release in WFC:S. He stays true to the original in that both vehicle modes are kinda forced together, with the train working a tad better. This go round he comes with an extra set of pieces that act as a weapon storage, backpack, feet risers and launch pad. I’m torn on the method for Leaders here in Siege. They are basically Voyagers with extra pieces, keeping them smaller, but the extra pieces are kinda cool and don’t ruin the core figure. Whether I like that or not depends on what side of the bed I wake up on.
All in all he’s a very Siegey version of Astrotrain and was another fun run to mess around with. I’ve been extra happy with Siege overall, first mainline Generations figures I’ve gone deep on in over a decade. Earthrise looks to continue the design logic and G1 nostalgia, and that is welcome here, I’m staying on for another round!
Check out our Astrotrain gallery below. He is in stock now at TFSource!
In addition to Astrotrain, we’ve also updated a chunk of the Siege deluxes with basic gallery entries. When this line started I wasn’t planning on going as deep as I did, but the line was just too good! I went back and got deluxes I wasn’t planning on, you can check them by clicking the picture below!
