Astrotrain Leader Transformers Siege WFC-S51
Siege Astrotrain is an all-new, heavily-cartoon-inspired mold that transforms from robot to either a space shuttle or steam locomotive (not a modern locomotive like every toy of his since the original). Despite being released in the Siege line, his alternate modes are clearly styled after Earth vehicles. This, together with his A.I.R. Lock System compatibility, makes it seem a lot like he was designed with Earthrise in mind, and indeed his toy later received a straight rerelease in that line. He features the trademark Siege “battle damage” paint applications on his legs, as well as multiple hardpoints all over himself and his weapons to accommodate “Fire Blasts” from the Battle Masters assortment, which can be used to simulate blaster fire or explosions.
As with other Leader Class figures in the line, Astrotrain himself is roughly Voyager-sized, with his accessories accounting for the rest of the pricepoint. In addition to five C.O.M.B.A.T. System weapons (including one based on his original toy’s blaster), which can be combined to form the “Omni-Force Orbital Cannon”, he includes a tender large enough to store all five weapons inside. The tender can be converted into a small launch pad base (designed as a treaded crawler vehicle with two cabs) for his shuttle mode.
