    My comment is that they are too long. Maybe a 1/3rd should be cut out there.

    Honestly think the Takara one looks better. Something about the actual car roof being the chest rather than a fake piece really does it for me.

    Tab together better in bot mode, hide the unsightly gaps in the backpack, and give him superior articulation and he'll be a winner.

    When they showed the 3d render for blitzwing, we got a grey prototype in the same week and a month later it was a painted prototype

    I wonder if this will have a similar timeline

    They will fold similarly to Haslab Victory Leo's wings.

    Oku, would you know if those mushroom peg openings on the front of the biceps will be filled in?

    I'm looking forward to seeing the physical model on this. Any chance it'll show up by or at TF Con next weekend?

    Nice render, but I'm not jizzing my pants until a prototype.

    I saw the 3D print test model pics in all white plastics which is little hard to make out all the details. You will see those pics very soon.

    I like it! TT tracks is such a bad design and looking figure. Basically an empty shell

    At least the alt-modes don't suck like their Blitzwing

    It doesn't look bad, we'll see what the prototype looks like.

    The more I look at it, the more apparent it is that the ST Tracks' chest is a faux piece. There's no way that's the actual roof... Or is it?

    No, I didn't think it was either.
    If you look at the car roof, it has a seam down the middle (and is missing the yellow square from the robot mode) which I imagine splits to fill out the flanks (?) so my guess is the robot mode chest is a false roof - especially considering it doesn't have the translucent windows

    Fyi. The designer seems listening to the feedback about the hip.
    So it might be modified to look like Jhiaxus figure.

    That would be great. Single flap hipskirts are an eyesore. Still don't like it on their Blitzwing.

    Every new figure from any company should use this kind of system to form figures' hips from now on IMO.
    Please no more hipflaps.
    And all ab-crunches (if there have to be ab-crunches) should be modelled after Deformation Space's Blaster.

    Absolutely a faux piece.

    I remember not liking the render of the DS Blaster and i love the actual figure. So i'll be super interested to see how it looks in hand but also what scale is it. I love my DX9 stunticons and blaster. I'd want it be the same size... but that probably won't happen. anyhoo quoting because .. man if that guy did an MP Jhiaxus i bet it would look great.
