|Function: Bounty Hunter|
|"The greatest opportunities are born from adversity."|
Constructed to serve as a transport for Megatron and his warriors, Astrotrain became discontent ferrying unappreciative Decepticons across the galaxy. In the chaos that followed the Unicron Battles, Astrotrain struck out on his own as a bounty hunter. Astrotrain convinced the Mini- Con Starcatcher to join him by promising him wealth and riches. The same promise was made to a trio of Mini-Cons who joined him later: Astro-Hook, Astro-Line, and Astro-Sinker. Astrotrain is cruel, but he is also extremely loyal to those under his command. He has an innate ability to inspire loyalty in others. His years of successful commissions have afforded him significant wealth, allowing him to upgrade his systems, greatly enhancing his strength. However, he has never given up his primary weapon, an ionic blaster that disrupts an enemy's internal circuitry.

Astrotrain Additional Info
The Mini-Con names are Starcather, Astro-Hook, Astro-Line and Astro-Sinker.
The design was based off of an unreleased Transformers Universe figure known as Space Warp. The figure was initially meant as a store exclusive. However, no store picked up the figure. Fun Publications decided to release the figure, with a new head and slightly tweaked color scheme, as Astrotrain.
