    Well, its a flawless paintjob....but it doesn't really say Shattered Glass to me. The majority of SG characters take their color cues from either an alternate interpretation of the G1 character, a mold clone, or opposite number from the other side.

    For instance, Grimlock has Trypticon's paint scheme, Starscream has Jetfires, etc etc.

    Its not a bad color scheme to me by any means, but it doesn't really speak to an alternate version of the character. I think if it was me, I'd have given him Breakdown's color scheme...oh and he should have an australian accent :)

    nice, i really like it and was already contemplating having a custom sg tracks made... was thinking of using mostly purple aswell... or maybe a blood red :ev: 

    i never saw any decepticon as a opposite rival to tracks, so i think any evil color scheme works for him...

    Well, Dead End's got the vanity thing going for him. But then he already has pretty close ties with Sunstreaker. Hmm...

    But I think the purple and black work well anyway. Nice job. :)

    In the magazine comics SG Sunstreaker was essentially ALT Deadend.

    I went with a green face on my ALT SG Tracks, basically to match the original black tracks diaclone. But that purple face looks sinister

    I agree with Nemesis Convoy! Concept of shattered glass,meh for me. Your work on the other hand Is Quite good! I like your color choices for this and it does have a nice evil vibe about it. So I say Well Done!

    Wow I really like that paint job; to me it just screams, "SG Tracks"! I took the time to write up a bio for you as well:
    Tracks loves to get down and dirty, whether if it's crawling around in the mud-filled trenches, of having a brawl in a construction yard. He could care less about his paint scheme, and he also loves the ladies! You'll see him hitting on all of the femme bots at a bar or just at base, but he hardly ever scores with them. It could be due to his smelly, stained body and his terribly kept up paint, but he can't figure out the real reason.
