To be frank, a black Tracks was kind of out of the question with the upcoming Runabout, which used the retooled Wheeljack mold. They would have been too similar, wouldn't you say?
And I hate it that they keep teasing me like that. First it's because I can't go to Dallas anymore due to lack of funds (I really have to stop saying that) and now the toys are turning out great! It's like they're saying "You can't come and get us, neener neener"
$1,500 gets you into BotCon, hotel and airfare. You can cut those costs down by carpooling with other fans, sharing hotel rooms, selling duplicate exclusives, etc. Over the course of a minimum of 9 months between BotCons, that's only $39 per week that you'd have to set aside in order to go. Where there's a will, there's a way!
You're right about a black version of Tracks, though that could've cut costs down further. When I wrote my original post, I was thinking Drift used the same mold but that is not correct, hence my comment about SG Drift (who will also be red). Perhaps they'll do a black Tracks as the attendee "freebie".
"Road Rage" Tracks will give me an excuse to bust out e-Hobby Road Rage and Crosscut though. Hm ...
Current Want List:
Beast Wars Returns Strika, Sixknight (stickers or replacement), Browning, Dai Atlas, Guard City, Battle Gaia, Marlboro Wheeljack, and more!
