Astrotrain by Anthony Appleton

Here's the low-down on Anthony Appleton’s Astrotrain custom in his own words:

Along with Blitzwing, Astrotrain was featured heavily in Season 2 of the cartoon and the early part of TF:TM. To make Astrotrain, I used Snarl's torso, Powerflash's legs (with the missiles sanded down) and Soundwave's arms. I also shaved the 'ears' off Inferno to make a rounded Astrotrain head.

As this was one of my earlier customs, I did not put wings on initially, thus giving him the Action Master look that Starscream and company had. However, I later applied some seeker wings to complete the look.

I'm very happy to see that there are other Action Master fans out there! If anyone else has a customized Action Master they'd like to see featured, by all means email me and let me know!
