Transformers Legacy Velocitron Galaxy Shuttle Official In-Hand Images

Hasbro's Mark Maher @markclonus returns from Space with the report on the Transformers Legacy Velocitron Galaxy Shuttle figure that touched down for Walmart Collector Con last week. He's got some in-hand images to share with us as well as his notes on the figure and other details you gotta read in his report below.

NOTE - For those who do not know, Velocitron Galaxy Shuttle is still available for preordering on Walmart.com

Welcome Velocitron Speedia 500’s Leader GALAXY SHUTTLE. Now I know what some of you are going to say, he should be alot larger as he appears on the Transformers animated Victory series. The G1 toy did have a third mode but it wasn’t a sweet choochoo train. Well all aboard the crazy train because when I found this alt head in the mold from Siege Astrotrain I started spinning in my computer chair yellin “Wooooo”!!! Full blown Ric Flair strutting around my room!!

One of my favorite things when I was a Master Model Artist for Transformers was when I recieved the first shot of the grey model prototypes shipped in. Most of the time, the extra alt head came in a seperate small baggy unidentified. I used to try and guess what character it was going to become and it soon turned into my favorite lil game!

So, I didn’t get to work on this design for Astrotrain, but I have a special love for the bot, especially the G1 white version of the toy, def one of my favs as a wee young lad. As I was searching through the mold I stumbled on these images of Galaxies unused head sculpt and I just couldn’t resist.

So, I did screw on Astrotrain’s head just to take a gander, might have to get back on my custom game and do up a special one for the shelf.

Now I know some of yall didn’t get to buy this stylish dude, sold out on the Pulse real quick. I don’t have the info on anymore stock or release info either, so hang in there I unfortunately don’t know who from TT designed this awesome figure either. Sorry! They did a fantastic job though, because this toy rules! Lots of fun! I do wonder if the designer that drew the sculpt for the launch pad realized it could be painted as a duel purpose helicopter pad

Well this dude was a blast…off! (oof dad joke)

I preordered one but I too would've wanted him to be a commander class. It's such a perfect fit. Astrotrain is too small as it is just for Astrotrain and he's way too small for Galaxy Shuttle.

But you know who this isn't too short for? Spay-C from the GoBots. It might actually be too big for her but that's better than being too small. I'll grab a second one at some point and customize it into her. Hopefully Toyhax will have made a sticker set upgrade for doing just that. Maybe even with a new head. At the very least I hope someone makes a Super GoBots Spay-C head to put on this.

It's cool that this was designed from the start but there's a few others I would've liked to see from this mold long before they went here. Sentinel Prime based on his Titans Return design. Armada Jetfire based on his cancelled Botcon toy also based on Titans Return Astrotrain/Sentinel Prime. Armada Overcast...er I mean Armada Powerlinx Jetfire as Overcast is the US name for Energon Powerlinx Jetfire as Jetfire's brother and I just use it for both Jetfire redecos. The cancelled Spacewarp that was eventually redone into Timelines Astrotrain. Star Dasher which is the new name for that odd white/blue/orange Platinum Astrotrain reissue. Not to mention toy colors Astrotrain. Takara reissue Astrotrain too but then that would pretty much just be Galaxy Shuttle anyway.

It would've been nice if they thought of that last one aHEAD of time and kept the Astrotrain head in the box like they did for the Creatures Collide set. And also have a sticker sheet to make him one character or the other. I would've bought three at that point one for each character and one for Spay-C. They certainly would be able to sell more if they had thought of doing that. And since Spay-C is also the same colors, maybe have made a head for her as well and expanded the sticker sheet to further differentiate the three from each other. I mean, it's all pretty obvious and would've made it more likely to sell through stock on such an obscure character. Assuming they still used the Galaxy Shuttle name on the box and not Astrotrain at that point.

Damn, I might just have to grab three of this now. I could maybe use Titans Return Darkmoon as the face for the black and white Astrotrain instead of trying to find just the head from another Siege Astrotrain to use. I hope this guy goes on sale before selling out as I don't feel like putting an extra two leader class Transformers on my Walmart card. At least I get points though.

Honestly, I will probably pick this up, but, I am also really disappointed as I had always hoped for an update to this figure, but NOT as an astrotrain recolor, it really does not make sense here, could have given a new commander class mold. Still, it does look nice.

They are now up on Walmart.com

Thank you! The listing on Hasbropulse was sold out before the push notification even went out!

Gates13 2022-10-06 @ 2:21 pm

Wow... it's already sold out?

STngAR 2022-10-06 @ 2:10 pm

Love this recolor, but the back of the box shows the inside of the leg panels black but the robot image shows white which makes that hollow leg horrible looking. ?

That's amazing! I'm ridiculously hype for this!
