    Heerotoysmaker slipped in this silhouette on their web site, inside the Jazz solicitation recently. Appears to be Tracks/Road Rage!

    Now there was a Tracks and Road Rage released back in 2008 (pictured below), but it quickly disappeared. I'll be glad to see it return!

    Too bad Road Rage has the wrong color. (midnight blue instead of black) or I'd bite.

    Those are pictures of the ones from 4 years ago. We don't know what colors the ones he will release next will come in.

    WST Track was released in 2008 by Heero? Damn, I must have missed it. Seeing how Heero WST UMagnus has such good joint and quality, then Heero Tracks will certainly be mine. Count me in.

    The $200 one was the original one. He copied it.

    ^Interesting. So who made the original Track which Heero copied it?
    Also, when do we expect Track to come out?

    Takara made it. They planned to release a Tracks in the later wave of Smallest Transformers, but it was canceled.
    Takara announced a Tracks, a Skids and a Megatron add-on kit before they canceled the Smallest Transformers line.

    Several prototype Tracks were leaked out and sold on ebay for a couple hundred each. This guy reverse engineered it to make his toys.

    Heerotoysmaker is the guy who made Smallest Dirge, Ramjet, Ultra Magnus, and dozens of other recolors and remolds of Smallest Transformers toys.

    As the teaser says - coming soon. I have no idea when that will be considering it has been 4 years since he first released a couple on ebay. I hope this means he decided to produce another run of that mold.

    ^^ well there's "molds" and then there's Molds. It's fairly likely the original was a simple recast good for a dozen shots whereas the new version is proper tooling for (hopefully) thousands. Does anyone have the originals? How's the quality? Wonderfest Ultra Magnus quality, or Heero Ultra Magnus quality?

    Still, this is great news. Made my day.

    Count me in. I've got all of the official and unofficial WSTs, so I'll be picking this guy up as well if Heero does release him.

    Man I miss the WST line. Those were fun.
