    I'm content with United Tracks. I'll go for this if we get Loudpedal.

    Reviewer seems to be ham-handing him a bit. I'll wait for more reviews before I decide how "fiddly" it is. I agree with most people here about the thin or clear plastic bits, though. Seems like all (or most of) the cars going back to Earthrise have lots of clear fragile plastic (Wheeljack is one exception). I do love the use of pins here rather than clip-on parts or friction joints.

    I thought the head seemed a little large too. Same with Runamuck.

    I hate the fake chest trend. I'd never have bought Sunstreaker and Runamuck had I realised the chest was fake. On both figures it made me think the car modes were smaller/narrower. In reality, both cars look too wide to me when compared to the Nissans and 86 Jazz.

    It's a shame this reviewer didn't give us a comparison of Tracks' car mode with other car mode figures.

    I actually cancelled my PO after seeing this. Doesnt feel like a big enough upgrade from my United Tracks
    May get Road Rage

    I don\'t mind fake chests most of the time since it\'s usually for the sake of proportions (and it\'s on a freaking a deluxe, they\'re already charging us more for the plastic alone).  In this case, it if weren\'t for the paint implying windows I\'d completely ignore the fake out and assume it was a robot chest.

    Sunstreaker's chest isn't fake? And Runamuck's is really well-done I think. If Tracks's was implemented as well as his was I wouldn't have a problem with it.
    I didn't realize all the blue was paint. Really makes me wish they'd used a metallic blue like the United and MP figures have.

    Sorry, fake is the wrong word for Sunstreaker. I found it misleading.

    Yikes! I love the original G1 toy, and for me this is not a good homeage by a long shot. RTS will hold its post as my Chug Tracks until the next iteration.

    Headsculpt looks great, but those legs are poorly designed. I'm sticking with the RTS figure.

    Personally I love fake chests... no pun intended.

    Fake kibble allows the best of both worlds, looking good and model accurate in both robot and alt mode.

    That said, I'm not a massive fan of the Tracks figure. Maybe because I was most looking forward to him. I'm sure I'll still get him since I like the character so much but he doesn't quite do it for me.

    The feet reminds me of the Generation's Darkmount and Skullgrin mold. Which could use a new voyager class figure as well.

    I swore at the beginning of Earthrise I wouldn't do this but I find myself doing it more and more.

    Stolen copies probably haven't had the best of QC, since you know...they're stolen before that process.

    The hasbro pulse exclusive figure stands will work just fine with the clamps.

    This is exactly the reaction I had. I was so looking forward to Tracks and then I felt disappointed when he was finally revealed. I'm pleasantly surprised to have my mind changed.

    I cannot stand those figures now, a square block as a chest/abdomen and those crazy short legs. Proportions are just so off. The designers had no choice but to have a fake chest to help with the proportions of the bot mode; otherwise he would have a chibi mp bumblebee car mode.

    I like it. I think it's a lot cleaner in all three modes than I expected.
