Turbo Track ??Mode - TF???? - HK-TF ???? - Powered by Discuz!
Looks much better.
Nice. I can't wait to get one.
Cool. He's now on my probably-will-buy list.
Flying car mode, people. Show it.
Tell me about it. I'm really surprised after all of these pics of him, we have yet to see it.
Robot mode reminds me of alternator tracks x
Looks really great, less wide than in the earlier pics.
he looks like bt tracks.
^This. If only for the strange duck feet.
MUCH better, I may pick this guy up. I do agree about the feet being weird, but frankly as long as the feet can do their job of holding up the figure I don't mind them. They got the rest of the figure right.
Agreed, although it looks like the figure is even slimmer than that picture shows. The "wings" are folded up on the back so at this angle they look like part of the chest. Still, he doesn't look bad at all without wings, so props to hasbro for being able to include that option of having the wings or not.
Actually, here's a picture I just found where the wings are deployed and Tracks looks pretty well proportioned:
I like it, if they do Wheel Jack with this mold, I'll really be excited.
Don't get me wrong, I'll still get this. I'd get the damn Movie Bumblebee mold with different heads if they called it a G1 character in this line.
The paddle-feet just suck... but I could get past that. The mid section just looks like a man wearing armor made out of a pizza box. Or one of those 'THE WORLD IS ENDING' guys:
I'm not too sure if there's a flying car mode. if you look closely, the wings are on the inside of the doors. So if there is, he'd have no doors in the flying car mode.
I'll wait to see the United! version, just for better flames.

Well I was kinda skeptical about this guy before but these new pics have sold me on him. 2011 is getting expensive.
The Hasbro team confirmed its existence at BotCon.
The doors may have to be positioned funkily, but who cares? Because hey -- FLYING. CAR.
Considering all of the pics from China thus far have Tracks transformed wrong, I presume they don't know how to do the flying car mode, or just aren't aware of it.
His wings are tiny.
I won't be this really doesn't fit wheeljack. If they do use a pass mold on wheeljack I'd rather have classics/universe sunstreaker than tracks.
Honestly, I'd rather they didn't. There's already so many versions of that mold: Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Punch/Counterpunch, G2 Breakdown, and Red Alert. I've seen the numerous Wheeljack conversions out of Sunstreaker, and while they are nice, a Tracks retool would save people a lot of work (and complaining) because of the surprising degree of how close Tracks is to Wheeljack:
Hood Chest? Check
Giant sholder guns? Well, the missiles in black would be a good substitute.
Rear component of car becomes back? Check
Front of car becomes legs? Reversed, but more articulated.
All the mold needs is a spoiler, the white/green/red paint job, the number 539, and Wheeljack's head to make a good Generations Wheeljack in my opinion. It may not be exactly dead on, but it's a better representation of the good 'ol mad inventor than the Lambo twin mold in my opinion.
