    Considering all of the cashing in on Diaclone already with previous car molds, I'm sure Tracks will get another go in probably black. Also neither Tracks or Roadrage has the toy face mask, so you know they have to dip back into the repaint pool to put that out.

    Dang, Sixo! DANG! Glad I get to vicariously enjoy the variant MPs through your gorgeous shots! Natural light aside, how do you get that beautiful sheen in your work?

    Thanks, buddy! And that's all there is to it. Road Rage is just particularly shiny in the light!

    Just got her in today had to take down the xmas stuff before i could mess with her. "You must buy a toy every day" says the wife :lol . Not every day baby. I love it, only thing wrong is that floating head. Other than that everything tabs in nice and tight. Did the shaving of the backpack hinge like another board member suggested and it brought the kibble in and down alittle bit, perfect! I must be easy to please because this is as good as the sunsurge i just got last week. Dont see the complaints people had for tracks. I love this mold, great job takara!

    They seem to like to squeak out at least 5 uses per mold where they can get away with it. At least with the less expensive Carbots. I think the bigger question will be when we do see variant recolors of the Vette tooling, such as the Diaclone "Black Tracks" as we call it, which tooling will they use? Male or Female?

    In regards to the floating head, my RR's was pretty bad. The hinge it sits on was loose and didn't have that "click" that Tracks had. I used some clear nail polish to get some more friction and so far so good!

    Got her in today! Only complaint I have is that when I pushed the side mirrors in, there was like a 1mm size of stress that appeared on the top of the door. But other than that, very happy with her. Transformed her and realized I was missing some tabbed sections from when I had last done Tracks.

    Her ankles look like they're supposed to tab in on the leg too, but I can't get them in there. Is it supposed to get in there?

    Cool pics!
    Yes, ankles seem tighter on mine than on tracks. Also, the legs weren't as hard to pry apart as on tracks. I'm really happy to have her. I think she may be the only exception to my "toon" only collection. I wasn't planning on diaclone repaints/remolds but this one looked too good to pass up!

    Sixo, you really brought out a rich deep red in your photos! I wish the paint job looked that good!

    Got mine today, her ankles were pretty tight as well, and it was diabolically hard to get the front tab undone unlike on my Tracks.

    ??? Her paint job does look that good under bright natural lighting. I also spent a just a few extra $ on better light bulbs and got noticeably brighter colours in my living room. If I take her to my kitchen window she's as deep red as her box art.

    Thanks! Although I agree with DesertDog, I think she looks great in certain lights especially. In natural light she really shines! I think she's beautiful, but I guess maybe some people might have preferred the sparkly paint that Tracks had?

    Tracks had a extra bit on his chest that the neck flap would snap past securing it somewhat.

    Well I shipped her via EMS and she still hasn't gotten here by the end of the week. It's funny, EMS has never taken so long before. Fortunately it's not someone I wanted in a great hurry, but I sure hope Ironhide doesn't take so long at the end of the month.

    My place gets hardly any natural light thanks to my wife being sorta like a vampire. I'm sure the harsh LED lighting in my Deltof isn't helping any.

    Wow that looks metallic? I sure others have said that it's a dull red in person, but how can it be?
