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" :sad:


$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!


Does that include a whopping $1,000 for two trans-Atlantic tickets for me and my wife? I have my in-laws for accomodations, then there's the question my work allowing me off, since my wife likes to spend weeks in the US :P

Like it or not... it's easier and cheaper for them to strike while the mold is on the presses. (The molds are the size of a semi truck - large chunks of heavy metal - and are stored at various warehouses off-site. A pain to locate, move, assemble.)

If they can crank out a few in different colors on the same run, we all benefit = much cheaper. The also lose the molds, and have them damaged. Even though it's anti-climactic getting a few similar molds at a time, it's better than taking a chance on it never happening.

Yeah, gimmie all those seekers at once in a box. I don't wanna wait years for that Skywarp that may never come out.

Correction: with Classics Skywarp available, a BotCon Skywarp is totally out of the question.

No no... I don't want a Botcon Skywarp....

I was just saying Hasbro needed to put all the seekers out together in the same year. Not make us wait years like they seem to each time. I was thinking of Animated, Classics, etc. Lots of lines have left us waiting for the third seeker in consistent size class.

Very true. And we are in the 21st century now, so I'm guessing issues like mold sustainability and longevity are less of a problem as toy technology progresses. I'm just fascinated that this mold has been used so much in such a short time span. It was 2+ years before the seekers and the Lamborghini molds got used and abused.

Looks good, I'll gladly add this to the SG collection. Glad I don't care about most Diaclone or ehobby decos so I won't need two. Now a Diaclone Convoy from the Classics voyager Prime would be cool though.

Yeah, they've definitely gotten some mileage out of that mold, but that still looks really nice!

Do you guys think the actual figure will be that sharp and shiny, or is that a little Photoshop magic?

I like it,it's a awesome figure. I'm not into repaints. I'm happy for those who like this & will buy it.

I don't like the blue parts on this toy. I think the blue parts clash too much with the red & white & black parts on this toy.

IMHO,The blue parts look out of place,don't blend in with to other colors of this toy & the blue parts look KO.

Even in vechicle mode the blue parts stick out under the car doors like a sore thumb & just don't blend in that well.

Update: I did some quick internet research on the G-1 or reissue road rage & saw some pics. apparently botcon 2012 roadrage has blue parts because the G-1 or reissue has blue parts. I THINK THE BOTCON 2012 ROADRAGE PARTS SHOULD BE MORE DARKER TO BLEND IN BETTER.

They did the right thing by making SG Tracks Road Rage. It's an easy way to satisfy 2 different groups of fans who dont see eye to eye. A win win for both Classics and SG fans !!!

GGNNNYYAAAAAARRRGGGHHH...Road Rage has been the focus of an unhealthy obsession of mine for YEARS. I've already customized versions of her for a few lines. Now there's an official Classics version...and it's part of a BotCon exclusive set? *aneurysm*

...so, if Tracks' personality and voice were based on Thurston Howell III, does that make SG Tracks Gilligan?

I have the OTFCC Shadow Striker (Silhouette) and Roulette and you can see the wear from use of the mold. To keep the head from flopping down I used a slight touch of aluminum foil. The thing I loved was the paint jobs and the head remolds made the use of the mold seem like it would be for a girl all along.

As for this tracks, it-look-a-like Road Rage but it's not. However those lucky enough to get this set (me will get this one) may get the fortune of someone making a new head and replacing the purple Autobot symbol. Even though this is a Classics Vs. SG, I sense evil Ultra Magnus may also sport some Diaclone colors. I wanna see what he looks like next.
