    Couldnt resist as total sucker for G1 so nabbed this off ebay - super nice figure if your a geewuner, okay figure if your not.

    Transformation is nice and simple much like the original, boot flips up and arms fold out, legs pull down and flip round at the waist, the head and shoulders extend out of the body via a little automorph gimmick where you push the roof top upwards. The wings fold out of the door panels therefore no flight mode for tracks, the missiles also unclip from under the door and clip back onto the shoulder mounts.

    Articulation is good, knees and hips dont have much range of movement and the bulky upper body stops the arms crossing over the chest area, all said though its a solid 6/10 and a worthy addition to your modern G1 collection.

    Just a 6/10? Ouch. Seems kind of harsh. From what I've seen (and now heard), I think the biggest disappointment is no car flight mode. Other than that, I think he looks great. Not sure what else there is to complain about.

    EDIT: I don't understand all the fuss about the "backpack." I think it's a nice nod to the original figure. It has a very similar feature.

    No Corvette?!

    he looks like an overall good transformer, but i don't think i'll be getting him since they didn't give him a corvette vehicle form.

    Great looking Figure. Got Him and Jazz Pre-Ordered from Red Leader's Emporium of Plastic Crack today.

    Hopefully a little rubbing alcohol and a spot of Reprolabel magic can sort those fugly flames...

    I hope too, I'd prefer a more "normal" flame design, will have to see what Takara do with him!

    Nice pics too, gives a better idea of the toy look, and I like what i see :)  But I guess no car with wings?

    All right, he's firmly on the want list. I prefer the original hood flames, but I don't really care. That goes for flying car mode as well.

    NO FLYING CAR MODE!!!!!!!!
    THAT'S, LIKE, TRACKS' THING MAN!!!!!!
    It's like selling Ultra Magnus with no armor!!!! (oh, wait- they do that all the time).
    I'll still get him! I think he's way cool, though reprolabels will help out with those flames, I'm sure.
    I miss his longer G1 Sniper Rifle. Maybe I'll make him trade with Blurr.
    Also, I miss his Faceplate. But I guess having a cartoon accurate Tracks is better than no Tracks at all.
