Astro-Hook is one of several Mini-Cons employed by the Decepticon bounty hunter Astrotrain. The eldest brother of the Sabotage Team, Astro-Hook is a Mini-Con of ideas - ideas for parting fools and their money, that is.
Say, have you ever thought about the advantages of owning a monorail?

- A redeco of the Giant Planet Mini-Con Team member Longarm, Astro-Hook transforms into a double-crane-truck with a claw-arm and shovel. He was only available as part of the Astrotrain set (which also came with Starcatcher, Astro-Line and Astro-Sinker), the first toy set exclusive to the Fun Publications Official Transformers Collectors' Club.
