    Do you own or have ever seen the G1 Tracks toy's feet? They're pretty flat and long. So actually this RTS update's feet are pretty damn accurate.

    True, but I don't like the "toe" effect at the end of the feet. I could live with them if they were simply flat and long. They just look off to me.

    Ressurecting dead thread is not my intent, just want to tell you all that I just got this beauty in my hands and I'd say it is a cool bot for sure :) 
    Can't wait for the MP25 :D

    There's no shame in resurrecting a zombie thread in the Feedback section; it's great to see that older (old-ish?) toys haven't been forgotten and it's a useful thing to get opinions on how these figures have held up over the years.


    They look a bit weird, but I found one of the biggest downsides of this mold's feet (Wheeljack included) is that they're just too loose. Especially after you've owned him for a while. It doesn't take much to get him to topple over.

    Yes, I just found, after fondling with him for two days, that the legs are too loose. He topples easily.

    Ugly feet can be sorta modified by turning the waist and pose the legs Wheeljack style...

    I heart this toy. It was my favorite TF of any generation for many years.

    Future floor polish will tighten up those feet and legs.

    One of the few "Classics/Generations" cars I still have on display...
    He was one of my first G1's when I was a kid, and made for an outstanding modern figure as well.
    I am also excited for the upcoming MP release.
    I have a MOSC United Tracks hanging on my wall...I'm just too afraid to open it, and disturb that awesome metallic blue perfection.

    It has what remains my all-time favorite version of Tracks' head.
