    TFA Tracks... and Road Rage!

    The 'car-with-wings' alt mode of TFA Arcee inspired me to see what the mold might look like done up in Tracks colours, so...

    they turned red alert into a female, no reason they might not have for any other characters. the digibash itself is pretty nice, though i don't think a red face really works on that model

    The only problem with Tracks being a woman is that they actually showed Tracks in an episode on Animated,he freaks out about Fanzone being on Cybertron.

    Like Admiral Lilwall said, they have changed at least one other character gender on the show, so I figured why not - as for whether Tracks is or isn't gay, well, his lifestyle choice is his own business :p 

    I think some black panel lining and/or lipstick or something on the face might have helped it a bit, break the red up a bit and bring out the details.

    EDIT: you're right, Overhaulimus, they did too. In that case, I give you...

    TFA Road Rage!

    lol this one was done very quickly, so it's not all that great - she really needs the white plastic to be replaced with blue, so she has a blue head and wings, with a silver face.

    EWWWWwwww

    ARCEE as Tracks? Really???

    I love this toy way too much to see it twisted into a male character. :p 

    Why not call it Nightshade or something to that effect.

    And... I agree it needs lipstick and black lining around the face and eyes to break up that red. :thumb

    Interesting idea, very out-of-the-box! I like it! And with the already-female Roadrage repaint, it makes a certain roundabout sense.

    I'd only offer two points of constructive criticism. I think the lime-green swords and windshield clash a bit with the blue/white/orange deco.... they might look better in simple white or another neutral color. I also think I'd prefer the vehicle mode with actual flames, instead of the geometric detail being flame-colored. You could have two thin lines of flame running up along the edge of that detail, and then one symmetrical flame-burst on the central hood-scoop. I dunno.... I guess I just like my Trackses flamin'.

    Roadrage looks great, I think that deco works well!

    Thanks for the comments guys :) 

    Gauge - well, Road Rage is all woman, if that's any better :D 

    WhiteMocha - thanks for the creative critiscisms! The clear plastic colour was chosen specifically for the light-pipe eyes (which I wanted to be that colour). I totally agree with you about the flames, but this was the easier option ;)  If I do an updated version, though, that and the face would both be things I would touch up.

    Glad you liked Road Rage - the more I look at it, the more that deco grows on me, too

    Wow. Surprising how well these colors work, especially that Road Rage.

    I find this extremely amusing - for obvious reasons. ;)

    Hey gang, let's knock off the "Is Tracks gay?" discussion here. That's a topic better suited elsewhere.

    That being said, I think the mold has some potential, but not as a straight up repaint. That's just my :2c:

    How ludacris. If the voiceactor himself can say he isn't gay (the "accent" is called a "Harvard Lockjaw", folks), how in the blue hell does THIS confirm that he's gay? Come off it...


    And yea, I have to admit, that character and this mold are certainly a stretch to connect, but I have to admit, it looks pretty damn awesome. A bit of head work and someglasses and s/he might be passable for a legit Animated Tracks.

    Spartan Prime - funnily enough, it was the alt mode that jumped out at me and made me want to do this - like I said, the Arcee mold had a certain 'car with wings' vibe that reminded me of Tracks.
