Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has found a review online for MP-25 Masterpiece Tracks. This review gives us the best idea of what this figure has in store for us since it goes into depth in regards to the Transformation and scale with other MP figures.

A few points I noted:

- The head and shoulders of the figure are at the same level as MP Wheeljack's and he only appears taller due to him being slimmer and having the extended wings.
- He has a massive backpack as well as a very big gap (hallowness) in his torso.
- He can carry Blaster inside the car.
- The leg transfomration is very involved.

Enjoy!

Gah! I had hoped so much that the hollowness was a mistransformation, but nope. damn :BOT:

Yeah this blows really hard. This is what I needed to solidify my decision of waiting for the Hasbro release. If ever that doesnt come to pass, then I will be ok with it, I have no connection to tracks and the only reason I would want this toy is for the alt mode and to experience first hand that incredible looking leg transformation.

Those legs are definitely something unique to be sure :BOT:

The whole point of this line is to excel where the toys failed in the past. Using your argument of things being ok because of the original release, it would be ok if Ironhide didnt have a head.

While I agree with you, there is only so much that TT can cram into such a small car body, and still make it look great in each mode; remember, mp10 still has his entire crotch and obvious feet just chillin' out in the open (not even an attempt at 'fixing' the first ones problem of having them out in the open) >:oP

I think Tracks looks awesome. no I don't like the hollowness in the torso, but whos going to be staring at the back underside of him.... from the front, sides and direct back you have a good solid robot, and he's more pose able than any masterpiece to date. he is a definite buy for me, and I may pick up road rage down the road. now bring on masterpiece Hot Rod, as ironhide is an epic fail for me.

Tracks looks great! (Somebody is going to comment this and says it looks bad because the hollowness of tracks chest (even though its not visible) or how the legs are hollow (even though its for transformation and isn't visible))

Where pre tell then would you fit the hands? Of course it would be the back compartment. So once the arms are folded out, then it would be left hollow. Unless you put the arms into the cab but then again it would damage the chest aesthetic. If you copy the WJ style, then he wouldn't look like Tracks anymore.

And the analogy of its OK for IH to have no head does not hold water because the MP hopes to make a near identical analog of the anime figures. My "logic" as Burn previously mentioned is based on the pragmatic engineering design.

Let me repeat again, where should the arms be folded and still make the chest/torso appear solid? Remember the same argument with TAV Optimus Prime the big kahuna version?

Complaints of how hollow the legs are yet if you make it solid, you will cancel out the feature of his being a car carrier/trailer.

So in the end, practical engineering logic always trumps over the "I wish this or that" that is not founded of sound engineering logic.

November is still a ways away, and we don't know if the issue was manufacturing or licensing related. Hopefully the release doesn't move back any further.

I do not, but I was hoping that a masterpiece could close up a little tighter. That is just a large backpack with room to spare that could have been done a bit better :BOT:

Distribution issues.Remember that big explosion in a port of China? That may be a contributing factor too.
