"In confusion there is opportunity."

Creating confusion is his specialty, and as a triple-changer, he can switch from robot to train to space shuttle almost instantaneously. He thrives on foes' panic and fear. As a shuttle he travels at 20,000 mph in orbit, and up to 50,000 mph out of orbit. He launches weapons and satellites, and carries cargo. As a train, he has a top speed of 400 mph with a range of 1700 miles. As a robot, Astrotrain has great strength, and carries an ionic displacer rifle.

Sinister Space Shuttle.

  • Astrotrain is incredibly fast, heavily armored, extremely strong and fairly well-armed. In spite of all this he doesn't really think of himself as a fighter and spends most of his time hauling cargo and getting drunk on high octane fuels with troublemaking robot chicks in seedy robot dives.
  • Astrotrain is a bad influence on Blitzwing. Blitzwing is also a bad influence on Astrotrain.
  • Astrotrain's ionic displacer rifle is a unique weapon which moves ions about six inches to the left. This is more effective than it sounds.
  • Astrotrain and Blitzwing love eachother dearly, in that kind of popped-collar knuckle-tapping back-slapping way. They never admit to it except when drunk, however. At any other time they will just push your teeth in.
  • Astrotrain believes in "bros before hos."



I think I can. I think I can.
