    My favorite Alternator... A really cool looking character (bot and alt mode)... And Im really hoping they squeeze in a Uni. 2.0 version before its all over...

    But if they dont... I think a really good option is (based on the leaked concept art, etc) Movie deluxe Sideswipe...

    He has a similar alt mode, and imo bot mode too. And in pearl blue, I think it'll be cool... And wheels for feet seem fitting for a Bot named Tracks!

    Whatch think???

    (Sorry, I know this topic is VERY early as we still havent seen the toy or film footage!)

    The concept images we have seen for movie Sideswipe look absolutely nothing like what a Uni2.0 Tracks should look like. Hell, it doesn't even look like what a Uni2.0 Sideswipe should look like.

    No. Corvette'ish TF's do not automatically make a perfect Tracks figure.

    would make a nice Movie Tracks repaint if blue, or Movie Sunstreaker if gold, but Classics? eh. iunno though, i suppose its mossible. unlikely, but possible, it would depend in the toy. but prbly not

    No, I cannot think of I character that was in the movie that would go in the classics/universe line. In alt mode, maybe..

    Yeah I agree with this. I'm hoping Tracks gets an upgrade in Universe soon. Probably won't be before the Movie Sequel toys take over, but hopefully when Universe makes a comeback afterward.

    No. The movie aesthetic - like the Animated one - is too different for a toy from that line to fit in with the Classics.

    This.

    I think cybertron Hot Shot is probably closer than anything from the movie line.

    Kinda like reprolabels having a set for Movie Ironhide to turn him into universe Trailbreaker. And he looks good, but not like a Universe Trailbreaker should look.the aesthetic is just too different.

    A Cybertron Hot Shot repaint into Track and offered in a two of sorts like they did with the Ratbat/Springer deal. I think that would work if not a new sculpt.

    And to me Movie Sideswipe is dead for a repaint into Drift. The head and weapons make for a nice Movie version to me anyway.

    A new universe tracks needs wings. Perhaps we'll get one.

    I do think the '08-'09 classics fit in better with the movie aesthetic while the 06'-07' molds work well with the cybertron line.

    Has to do with lines and the intensity of mechanical detail. Gotta have my mecha.
