    So far I've only put together the Beast Wars Kingdom and their repaints, but Tracks (along with Jazz and Ironhide) is my favorite from G1 when I was barely able to use my reason, in the early 90's replay.

    If my economy improves in this damn pandemic, I buy Tracks too, even though it has feet supported by a thin shaft. lol

    Weapons don’t store in or under, basically hidden, in car mode? Canceling my pre-order. Car should have been a bit bigger so it could have stored the weapons in a hidden way in car mode. I guess the plus here is at least it looks like Tracks MIGHT be small / narrow enough to fit in Optimuses Trailer.

    Can we get a picture of that?

    I understand why it’s the way it is, but I always hated how boring his flames were in the cartoon. I’m not planning on getting him (probably Road Rage if she has a new head) but if I was I’d definitely get toyhax labels for toy accurate flames.

    Because Sunstreaker doesn't have a fake chest, his chest is simply formed from a portion of the roof and windshield, as opposed to Tracks and the Battlechargers who have completely fake roof chests.

    Tracks gets away with the fake chest as well as Hot Rod SS86 does, if you ask me. :cool: 
    Can’t wait to get my Flying Car Bot here.
    I have a nitpick or two, but realize they aren’t worth mentioning.
    I’ve learned with WfC that reviews leave me with concerns but I always enjoy the figures in hand, every time.

    Tracks looks really nice. I do wish the wings had some paint, but they made the right choices here for where they chose to cheap out.

    I know that. But Prime Noble said they never would have bought Sunstreaker if they'd known about the "fake chest," then clarified that it wasn't fake but they found it "misleading." It seems they thought his roof was real originally, and it is, so I'm not sure what they found misleading (maybe it was the fact that the chest isn't the entire roof and windows, but that's very evident from the seamline in alt mode).

    Love that the car mode looks like the cartoon Corvette, with its squished and cute proportions.

    The car looks good, but they couldn't figure out how to connect the arms to the body in flight mode? That's lazy...

    Cute is such the right word. At first it turned me off, when he was first revealed, but I’ve grown to enjoy it. He’s got a little bubble cockpit, that makes him look like a happy Cars character, whereas the real car’s roofline has a more aggressive line. Looking at screenshots, it’s probably just a case of them basing the shape of the windshield on the wrong one, but it makes for an interesting take on the character. Happy Tracks!

    My god there are a lot of Mechanical and Structural engineers on these forums always calling people lazy. I'd love to see all of your portfilos and bask in the engineering marvels that you all are responsible for.

    The original toy converted in like 5 or 6 steps. But people are gonna complain bout this being lazily designed and not being worth 20 bucks. My God this Fandom is trash at times.

    U make it seem like everyone has these just laying around.

    I dont.

    So back to the original problem with having a flight mode, without a way to mount it, that isnt 5mm compatible (like most flight stands) without apparent elitist jumping in...

    Its a lame complaint compared to others but a valid one i think.

    Lol. Way to be rude for no reason, and am in no way an elitist. I was offering you a valid solution, whether or not you are willing to buy the stands. I just got 6 of them recently and used them for the figures that don't have the ports underneath in alt modes for the other stands I own. These work well.

    I like this figure...I really do. But just like with SS86 Hot Rod, Netflix Bee and Kingdom Blackarachnia and Inferno, I already have the MP and this figure would just feel kinda redundant in my collection. I know the scale is different...but they look so similar that I feel like I already own it.

    I didn't even release Pulse sold those. That's pretty cool! My only gripe is that it doesn't look like there's an option to use the 3mm hole most Transformers now have for mounting to a stand. I'm not a huge fan of the gripper.

    Looks fantastic to me. I also loved the MP, which a lot seemed to hate for some reason
