Takara Tomy's Tranformers Masterpiece MP-25 Tracks has been peeping its head prior to the release date for quite a while now - in some local markets and distributions anyway - but we also have a new addition via Seibertron's podcaster ScottyP in the form of a video review (in Chinese) of the new figure and mold! Check it out embedded below.

Hmmm. Much more delicate and spindly than Wheeljack. Looks like you will have to mess with the legs quite a bit to get him to stand directly. The hollowness of the midsection when in robot mode just kills it for me. I'm also not a fan of that head sculpt. This is a bummer. Wake me up when Takara takes on the likes of Trailbreaker, Hoist, or Brawn. I want to see some trucks other than Prime and Magnus. The fact that were getting Shockwave, Arcee, Ironhide, and Hotrod 2.0 don't thrill me either. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

Hollowness in the legs plus its the first review it could change plus its unlikely the legs just won't stand on the actual release plus ironhide looks great so why come you don't like him?
EDIT:we don't know if we are even getting arcee its possibly debunked with hound being on it

I thought MP Arcee was bogus. I for one can't wait for Tracks. That metallic blue looks great, and makes me wonder if the hasbro version will be flat blue like the OG toy.

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!

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
