    Asking this because with Sunstreaker/Sideswipe/Red Alert balancing one half the original seekers, and wheeljack and tracks being two practically identical molds, who would make a good third to balance out the other three seekers?

    This.

    Also, I don't really mind if we get a Yellow Tracks (a.k.a Tiger Tracks)

    That was a distinctive piece in Binaltech/Alternator collection. :D

    I plan on mixing'n'matching parts from a second Wheeljack and Tracks to make Slicer and Downshift.

    There would also be "Marlboor" remold of Wheeljack.

    Though Wheeljack, Downshift, and "Marlboor" are all mostly white.

    Another white or blue toy from this mold seems redundant.

    Road Rage seems the most logical, although Swerve would be a more likely name, i would guess.

    I think I'm really leaning toward a Road Rage but would love it if they just released one, plus another female bot would appease my girlfriend!

    You could also just balence those seekers against Prowl, Silverstreak and Smokescreen?

    I'd love this. A head remold with a face mask would be awesome!

    Runabout and Runamuck I could maybe see, but honestly I think the Classics Bumblebee mold would be better for those two.

    Yes, it does, and I'd probably think any official release would be kinda stupid, but...

    I'll have United Tracks as my Tracks.

    Generations Wheeljack as Wheeljack.

    My custom Slicer will have Generations Tracks's car deco.

    My custom Downshift will use Generations Wheeljack, but I'll strip the red/green car deco.

    So... all 4 will have different car mode decos and be based on G1 characters. It'd be a bit silly for Hasbro to make Downshift or Slicer, but it's worth the extra ~$25 or so to me... much like making Tigertrack and Red Sunstreaker(Firecracker, to me).

    Personally, I would love to see the the mold, utilizing the Wheeljack configuration/parts, repainted as Daytonus.
