    Tracks is awesome. Mindset not so much.

    Seeing Mindset and Hailstorm together, makes me appreciate that Hailstorm is the better version of the mold.

    Diggin Tracks. He looks a little bulky in the chest, but that's ok. A little G1 touch. The reverse leg transformation looks pretty neat, but looks like he loses his knees... Still, I can see Wheeljack from it.

    Mindset? Who? :)  I think I need to look that character up.

    Mindset was a G2 green Decepticon who is now a blue Autobot. Go figure...

    Also it looks like that even if Wheeljack's legs aren't officially supposed to turn around in the toy, it shouldn't be hard to reverse the knees.

    Is it weird that I get a real BM Primal vibe from Mindset?

    I was already thinking of using ROTF Brawn as a Rhinox...

    Looking at the Tracks pics you can see how they are getting Wheeljack out of that too. Gun is clip & bar as well as the missiles.

    A pity Tracks looks so squat in these photos. I think designing a torso extension would have been an obvious move. :(

    Part of me really wants Mindset, so I'll probably still get him, but YOWZAH that's an ugly head sculpt! And whoever designed it must've missed the memo that Mindset was a character from G2 rather than the Dreamwave era, because instead of a perpetual sneer, his face is firmly locked in dull surprise.

    I'm really loving the Mindset/Hailstorm mold. Think I like Hailstorms paint job better but will probably pick up his brother anyway.

    I dig Mindset's headsculpt. Compared to how mean and hardcore Hailstorm looks, Mindset looks like he doesn't take things so seriously.

    I like how they manage to get in some personality through the abstraction of Movieverse headsculpts.

    Tracks still looks inadequate. It doesn't help that they had to give this particular sample a crooked faction label. I think the proportions of the mold will work out better for Wheeljack. Judging by a panel on the rear of the vehicle, I suspect Wheeljack will come with a spoiler attached.

    The Hailstorm/Mindset mold is fantastic. Very glad to see they popped a new head on there.

    seeing the alternate transformation of his legs with the flames towards the front seals the deal for me. I was getting too much of a "shrunken alternator" vibe from him, but now that I see what else he can look like, I'm all about getting him.

    I'm not seeing much "Mindset" in him other than the altmode. Granted the comic character's head looks mostly like some guy wearing a football helmet and diver's mask.

    I was thinking about passing on Hailstorm to get Mindset, but that head is pretty ugly plus it's an Autobot now. Looks like I'll have to find Hailstorm now.

    Maybe he started wearing the mask when he turned to the dark side in G2.

    I dunno, I'm sure we can come up with a story for why he changed factions.

    Well... I'm glad I got Hailstorm.

    Tracks is still looking good. I like the red face/white head on him, its usually the other way around for most head sculpts. Gotta love rubsigns too.
