    I was up late last night reading articles about Transformers as I have been doing a lot lately. This particular article I found to be particularly interesting. It concerns the super rare black Diaclone Tracks. Talk about your "holy grails" of collecting. Great story behind a great figure.

    What these guys?

    As you can see, re-issues, rather than Diaclone. Still cool though. Let's turn this into a "post your Black Tracks or Diaclone Black Corvette" thread.

    At the time that article was written it said that the re-issue black Tracks was selling for $300. I just looked on eBay and saw that one recently sold for $700. So, even the re-issue is a popular piece.

    That is a sexy beast. I don't own a black Diaclone tracks, but I do have an original red Diaclone, and well as a MISB eHobby reissue.

    Have to say I like the red and the black (black especially) more than what we ultimately got.

    Suddenly tempted to paint my Binaltech Trax like this (pretty sure I won't).

    They did release the Binaltech in red (Alternator Swerve) and Black (Ravage, new head) if that helps.

    I'm REALLY glad Maz got his site up and running again. I've enjoyed reading his articles so much over the years. I really enjoy the ones he's been doing for TFSource here recently.

    I'd so like to get a red Tracks and a black Tracks of some kind, even if they weren't Diaclone. I'd even resort (and probably will at some point) to making my own.

    The only thing that makes about the re-issues are those darned rubsigns. I'm an OG rubsign hater from way back.

    Um, get the Ravage fig and swap out the head. Instant Diaclone/Finnish homage. Also can do the same by swapping Swerve's head with yellow Tracks' head. Instant Dragstrip to go with a Road Rage. Some blue on the head required of course.
