    looks pretty solid! would have liked to see some tampo details on the wings, but the Diaclone homage will justify getting this mold.
    (no way the crappy mega gappy & hollow Tracks is replacing United Tracks)

    Maybe they'll do Loud Pedal in Selects with the faceplate?
    (Road Rage was originally rumored for Selects)

    But she has appeared in most media without the mouthplate.

    Only things she’s appeared in is the legends manga and a tiny background cameo in animated. This line is supposed to be G1 accurate, not legends or animated accurate.

    That’s just your opinion.

    No, it's G1 cartoon accurate. If they were basing it on the toys I've got some bad news about Ratchet and Ironhide. And since Takara has a hand in these designs...guess which one they probably wanted:

    She was never in the cartoon. They pulled this head out their ass for the MP.

    I'm sorry Takara didn't consult you directly about which head they should use for a "G1" character that didn't exist until 2002. Perhaps you can use the money you'll save on this to call someone who cares.

    If they're going to have regular exclusives, focusing on red stuff might actually help the companies they have deals with plan what goes where. Especially if the agreements include call outs for price/release date. Whoever plans the exclusivity agreement probably doesn't have a hand in design, so they can just tell designers "Okay so Target wants a red figure that's in the $19.99 price point" and the design team looks at their plan and says "Oh this guy will fit."

    Heck, it may be a Target/Hasbro thing. Because the exclusive Marvel figure is a Shang-Chi character in a red robe, and their exclusive Power Ranger is a modified Red Ranger.

    A little off topic, but I'd totally buy a Generations/gen selects/LG-ex/whatever modern update of toy Ironhide/Ratchet. A Titan Master could take the pilot seat. I'd be fine with that. Especially black Ironhide.

    I bet they could've gotten pretty decent sales for a Voyager Ironhide (even at scale) had he been his on-screen bot and his toy sled fleshed out. Think Commander Rodimus just not as big. But maybe they looked it over and that wouldn't have fit well with their other Voyager offerings.

    Good point. Also good point that this man’s account is older than the G1 character Road Rage. (October 2002)

    Looks good⁠—better than Tracks, in my opinion⁠—but Loudpedal is my preferred flavor of flying car so I'll wait for him.

    Hey, at least that way all three of the "Corvette Trio" will likely have their own unique heads. Who freakin' knows? Maybe Loudpedal will be the one that ends up getting a Toy-accurate head if stuff like Selects Hubcap & Bug Bite is anything to come by.

    IDW Comics currently.

    And if the line was only cartoon accurate we wouldn't see the Ark transforming into such an obscure character like The Last Autobot.

    Interesting. Nice to see some characters who were just eHobby or Masterpiece figures getting mainline releases who aren't just redecoes of Siege Sideswipe. Now if only we could get a Slipstream retool from Earthrise Starscream.
