Astrotrain is the name of the Decepticon Shuttle/Train triplechanger in the Transformers fictional universe. His fellow Decepticon triplechangers were Blitzwing and Octane. He has dynamic size and can resemble something as small as an Earth locomotive or as large as a space shuttle sufficient in volume to hold 10+ transformers, including the fully formed Devastator, inside. Astrotrain's main role was one of a transport, for which his large storage capacity makes him ideal.
In locomotive mode, Astrotrain had the ability to move about without the aid of any train tracks, allowing him to transform and drive around.
