    Hey I found a Tracks. I opened him up but his head is bone white. No red on his face. Is this common? I'll just paint it myself. But wondering if it is like this for others.

    Nav its not common as far as I've heard but heads like that pop up every now and then on all kinds of figures. Its just an unpainted face that made it through QC

    Thanks. Here is a picture of the normal head and my unpainted head. Oh I also used a G1 decal. Looks better. imho.

    admittedly I removed the "flames" from the hood. But the non red painted face is stock. It came like that.

    That looks great; might have to consider doing something like that. I hate the "flames" on Turbo Tracks. It looks like someone dipped some snakes in paint and let them crawl all over Tracks' hood. Maybe Reprolabels will do something to fix him...

    Wow, I never realized that Tracks and Springer's heads are near identical to each other.

    Paint it black like the original artwork for G1 Tracks.

    What did you use to remove the flames? Any side effects?

    Man, getting that plain face might have helped me out when I picked up my 2nd Tracks for repainting purposes. I'm going to have to paint his face silver for that purpose and the rest of his head a deep purple color (Road Rage). If that works out, I'm going to pick up a 3rd Tracks to paint "Binaltech Yellow".

    Hopefully with a bit kidding I can give my defender a more springer like head. I will be buying a 2nd tacks now

    I dont think that is gonna work out for you. Defender has a huge noggin compared to tracks.
