Astrotrain was incredibly, inexplicably cool. It must have been the space shuttle mode, because no one could figure out how a locomotive would be very useful in a fight. (I wonder why it never occurred to anyone how a locomotive could drive without train tracks on the ground, anyways.) In the cartoon he was often used to transport the rest of the Decepticons as a group, despite being the same size as Starscream in robot mode, which brought him (along with Megatron and Soundwave) to the fore of the discussion whenever fans wondered how TFs changed size in mid-transformation.
