We so saw this coming, a Road Rage homage... and I called the Tracks reveal! It wasn't Ultra Magnus that was revealed, but Tracks!

Should we send in Side Burn? :lol:
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Looking for:

Meh. If you consider what they were going for with this one, you can't get the execution wrong, and I don't think they did. I have no interests in this for being another SG figure though, I think this concept's been run into the ground at this point. I hope this set will be the last we see of it.

I think I was like 1 of 2 people who tweeted that they wanted to see SG Magnus. Who didn't see this look coming. Looks nice though and will go great with my SG shelf. Now show me Magnus and his new head DAMNIT!! :evil:

I'm just happy we are getting more SG!!

this was obvious, but it does look brilliantly garish. A definite improvement over Overlord.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

What the - that head with it's medieval British knight crest does not match the obviously modern aspects of his car body! :lol:

In all seriousness, the Track/jack mold is great, and this red is Fabulous. The Bludgeon toy's always been sweet, despite Gigatron's head being odd. I also finally got around to playing with G2 Prime's great toy for his eventual insertion into the Battle Tanker. If the Treadshot as Warpath turns out to be true, and Metalhawk falls into the Thunderbolt/Sky Shadow or Silverbolt molds, this may be the first BotCon box set I try to get. Non-attending, like.

Not sure i'd go as far as that. My G1 Road Rage goes make-up free, so her upgraded form can too. Now if i could find a way to stick a faceplate on her... :-B

Yes! Road Rage! My only complaint is that she doesn't look too feminine, but that's more an issue with the mold itself. And yeah, Reprolabels red Autobot logos for the stupid purple ones.

If it isn't Road Rage but indeed SG Tracks, we've known his bio for a while:

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:
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I'm starting to hate Fun Publications for releaseing Japanese exclusive characters as Shattered Glass ones.... It's making it difficult for Hasbro or Takara to release them at normal retail :(

Gigatron (Overlord) and Metalhawk are Classics, not Shattered Glass. If you're talking about Road Rage into SG Tracks, such an obscure character wouldn't have sold that well anyway.

I just got Generations Wheeljack yesterday, now I realize why WJ has the extra waist/crotch swivel, Tracks uses that feature, pretty cost-effective way to make 2 figures.

$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 ...

Botcon's choices don't affect Hasbro or Takara. They have to pick characters they have no plans to make for the next few years. I'm actually really thankful Botcon can throw us a bone and fill-in where some favorite awesome characters have been unused... and "missing" colorings for molds like Road Rage. Primo.

As for black Tracks being too similar to Runabout.... It's a big Classics shelf, my friend. Heh. (places two black cars at each end.) While they're close... the bang-for-the-buck of a black "corvette" is just awesome. Black and red sports cars for the set... can't go wrong.

Maybe it can be the short-run attendee exclusive. >:^D
