    I found this at the Saratoga/Wilton NY WalMart tonight. The stripes are silver, not white like the reprolabels, and the package was sealed. Has anyone heard of this coming out?

    Sorry for the crappy camera-phone pic. I'll post better pics later today (I HAD to grab this).

    RW, I think you called it. But that would be a good reason for Hasbro to keep Tracks coming in the next few waves.

    meh. fake.

    I'm sure you meant for the picture to look like it was taken in a store, and you did a pretty good job of that. but it's really easy to stack a bunch of boxes up to make it look like it's a store shelf, especially if you cannot see the shelf itself in the picture.

    I'm not accusing the submitter of shinanigans but if you look closely you'll notice that the box cut off at the top of the photo is also a Tracks.

    Was this the only one with the new deco? I bet it is just a return that somebody put labels on.

    Another quite real possibility is that a buyer purchased an Alt Tracks and a die cast Corvette and simply swapped them like with the infamous "Black Sideswipe" from some time ago.

    Lord knows most employees at these stores don't pay attention, and an experienced individual could easily reseal it to look new

    It is possible they were just downloaded and saved to Photoshop... Then again it's also possible MP-03 Starscream is going to be a brick painted like Actionmaster Thundercracker so let's put at least that much into this rumor.

    If he got home to upload that pic to us, and he says he got that one at the store... why did he only give us one pic? He has it according to him, he was home to upload, why wouldn't he be able to post more right away.

    I'm drunk off my ass right now, but here's a couple more pics taken while the room spins. I'm debating opening this tomorrow (that could just be the shots talking), but I may leave it MISB.
