    I can't believe that something could be worse than Arcee, but here we are. It's a shame too, because he looks great. At least with Arcee I was able to remove the shell, add a new backpack from Go Better, and turn her into an Action Master/Pretender hybrid.

    I finished Futuring my Tracks and he’s solid now. His legs joint also tab in well enough although I know the tabs themselves could be bigger to secure it more. I’m very satisfied with my purchase.

    Pushed the pins in farther on his leg panels on mine, definite improvement. As long as I tab the white parts into the the spot behind his knee, the legs aren't floppy anymore.

    Still hate the way the feet attach.

    Does anyone have pics comparing Kingdom Tracks to G1 Tracks? In both modes if possible?

    I stumbled back into this thread, and by chance looked at your photos again, and noticed something odd… are your tail fins in the wrong spots? The lines don’t line up when they’re folded away, with the angles on each going the wrong way. I think they’d match the body lines better if they were swapped!

    Looking at other’s photos, this may even be a widespread issue.

    What did you use to drive the pins in a little further without jacking up the plastic on the other side?

    You can't, not really. A flat surface, like a countertop, is more than enough to support the hammering of the pin. You can either use a pin punch or a screwdriver with a hammer, but when you do it, the fender part will have stress marks. It's inevitable. You just hit it with a source of heat (heat gun, high-powered hairdryer, or a lighter near the plastic but not on it) and the marks will go away and there will be no visual damage left behind. None.

    Awesome, maybe later runs will be fixed and sturdier, in the end it's just the leg panels that need to be closer to the white hinges at the pins. Like T30 Brainstorm, Arcee, CW Starscream, Kingdom Galvatron, they were fixed in later runs.

    Hopefully Road Rage will be already fixed out of the box.

    I canceled my pre-order for tracks after seeing these leg issues. Such a bummer.

    I was getting really annoyed with how tight the windshield panel plugged into the hood, so I snipped off the two tabs. The leg/hood tabs hold it on perfectly fine, and it's way easier to change back now.

    Don't have him in hand yet (hopefully tomorrow!) but compared to the G1 figure, he looks a little bland on the legs and wings. Might have to get a Toyhax set if they do one

    Emgo shows both mode comparisons in his recent review.

    The two cents from someone who thought the Universe mold was a great Wheeljack but a sub-par Tracks;


    - These legs are just too overly complicated
    - I wish the backpack collapsed into the body some more but it isn't that horrible
    + He is still very pretty
    + The chest collapse to snap the waist into place is a pretty cool feature
    + Such a pretty face

    Overall I like him a lot but some of these issues like the legs are pretty garish. I had to put polish in the leg/hip joints right out of the box to give him the ability to stand upright.

    All I want to know is what Hasbro or TT designer hates Tracks. We keep getting these overly complicated floppy messes. Poor guy doesn't even have feet, just some odd floating feet like platforms attached to the sides of his legs.

    Hadn't been to this page until I got mine today and been slightly excited (Character is in my top 5, waiting for a decent Brawn.. ), but this is right there with masterpiece disappointment. I don't understand the unnecessary complications - we've got a number of transformations that could be reworked for this guy out of WfC, and instead they reinvented the wheel again. At least it means I can save myself the hassle on Road Rage... And where's his damn Black Beam rifle.. stupid toon pistol.

    Someday I'll have a worthy replacement for the G1 toy. It just probably won't be official.
