    Wow. Now THAT is a flight mode. Thank you so much for sharing. Makes me want to own Tracks even more. Honestly, I don't understand all the hate for this figure. From what I've seen, the feet are probably the oddest part about him. I actually like the backpack too. Very Tracks-like.

    It looks a little better. But Raoul better have his seat belts on. Any hard turn by Tracks and he'll fall to his death.

    First off I dig the new flight mode. And finally someone who also like those tribal flames on the hood.

    Good stuff, that's definitely the designer intent. You even get the arms into the pseudo-jet engine mode and the gun underneath.

    Nice work.

    That looks way better than the previous version. I'd be willing to bet that your version is the "official" one.

    Well I just saw these in package on ebay. So soon we will know what it is. If hasbro bothered to include it, that is.

    Another interesting thing about your tracks: the rub sign. It appears to be the standard square rub sign with the silver background. That seems different from the other rub signs we have seen for the Reveal the Shield figures.

    if you were looking that close you probably noticed me asking another buyer whether theirs was the square one or not.
    I noticed it too. I am very suspect that mine is from a much earlier batch. possibly the batch that was used for those photos for the Chinese convention (speculation of course need to look back at those pics)
    mine came from a seller on ebay, and not KOtoys like Peaugh's, and Baltmatrix's

    the ones in the packages turning up on ebay right now seem to have the no-border rubs signs as well. maybe mine's batch was sold because they put the wrong signs on them?
    lol I like speculating about it... it's very fun!

    I personally prefer the rub signs with the silver background. The toys feel more nostalgic with those rub signs. The newer ones are nice, but seem a tad different. But yes, you probably got an earlier batch that had the original looking square rub sign. Almost all the other RTS figures I have seen have the newer looking rub sign (the one that has more shape to it).

    Wow, great vid! I wish most video reviews were actually useful like this. :)  I'd watch more of them.

    Thanks for sharing.

    yeah and the way to make useful vids is to buy the cool toys early.
    (I actually got a real steal on him, and I wasn't waiting another second for him anyway, lol)
