    Wanted to see a new version of tracks made and since Hasbro seems to be lacking in the Classics dept I made tracks here.
    Tracks started as a Cybertron Hotshot and then gave him a complete repaint, ball jointed head,new gun and of course shoulder missiles.
    He was painted using a custom blend of Citadel Enchanted blue with Folk Art Metallics Blue. THe hood decal is from repro and addition robotic decals are from a zoids kit.

    That is a great mold for a Tracks repaint - I'm suprised Hasbro has never thought of doing it themselves :)

    That's one sweet Tracks! I love the drybrushing on the shoulders/arms. I was gonna paint mine into Drift, but I thought "Nah, too obvious" plus, it's probably been done before, and with all the problems I've been having with white paint lately, I think you came up with a much better idea. I can't believe this hasn't gotten more responses, it really is top notch! Is he gonna be for sale?

    I think I'd actually buy this if Hasbro ever put one out. Is that the original Cyb. Hot Shot head? Because that works amazingly well as Tracks.

    Yep thats the original head though moddified. It was placed on a ball joint and his chin was more defined as I did a a little "plastic" surgery and removed the excess that made it connect to the original peg.

    Despite the Hot Rod inspired parts the mold definitely works with Tracks. Not a stretch at all. Cool stuff, and well executed!

    I never get tired of seeing these Cybertron Hot Shot into Tracks customs. I really need to get to doing one myself. Good job on the this, that ball jointed neck really improves the figure. One suggestion I have would be to cut the little tab on the upper arm that limits his arm raising ability. I cut it on my Custom Drift from the same mold and it helps improve the figure similar to the way your neck mod does, which I'm thinking of doing myself

    Been a while since I've seen Cybertron Hot Shot customized into Tracks: before ROTF Sideswipe came out, this was the mold most commonly used for Tracks. It's great to see your take on it.
