Is that Tracks' hood decal?

I'm not too big on the paintjob for this toy, I might pass. I'll wait til I see it in stores and can judge for myself before making a final decision.

That's the same hood decal that came with the blue Japanese version of BT Tracks.

It even says "Binaltech" on it.

How the hell did they manage to turn his right leg *that* much to the side? [back of packaging]

Still no word if he's coming as a Binaltech right? Although I wouldn't want to pay 50 euros for an identical figure to the one I own, except from the head and colour...

I suppose it's possible they've updated the joints and transformation a little bit. (it's the least they could do)

Well...at least now I'll have a flame decal for my Alt Tracks.

Thats assuming the deacl sheet comes with it. I imagine Hasbro will stamp them on in the factory. Edit>> Nevermind

Reminds me of the Diaclone Red Tracks, except for the head.

Wish this was a red Meister instead of Hasbro revisiting the weakest mold from this series...

*begin rant* why why why does everyone hate the tracks mold so much. as a car he looks fabulous and as a robot he...actually looks like a robot with no big clunky pieces that get pawned off as feet. sure teh hood hangs off, but the head is very reminiscent of a samuri helmet and the way the car piece "hang off" it looks like samuri aromr. very cool in my, and every collector i personally know, opinion. the on;y mold no has every complained about is by far the worst one...hound. it is absolutely awefull. there is no articulation. the legs can't move at the hip without sliding back together and the little alligator arms that he has can't be raised without lifting up the hood. lets not for get the fact that he has no neck and you can see a head floating in the hole in the hood. (oh by the way tracks legs can be turned like that very easily, just position the hood teh right way). sorry my rant is over, i hope no one takes this the wrong way, but there are a lot of people who really like the corvette mold (and lets not forget that Chevy has no problems with guns i.e. wrist, shoulder, and engine). *end rant*

Now about swerve, a third paint job (for me my forth, i am working on a custom that should get unveiled shortly). I like the red and gold and I am sorry to say, but the flame decal looks better on swerve than tracks. yes yes, teh G1 tracks has it, but it just fits with the color scheme of swerve better. Now that all the remolds have been packaged and will be out shortly, all that is left to do is wait for a new mold...i am still hoping that travesty of an policecar is an april fools joke...or streetwise

Well considering that I own both yellow and blue BinalTech Tracks AND Alt-Ravage you may say I like the mold a lot. Who cares if there's articulation on the legs or not. I just like the overall look of the toy in both modes.

Is anyone besides me reminded of Hot Rod by this with the flamey decal on the hood of a red sportscar?

I know it's Swerve... I'm just sayin'..

(also sick of the corvette mould, if anyone's keeping score)

Please pardon me, I'm a bit slow.

Probably 'cause none of us have seen any posts marked for attention in the feedback/questions forum...

Didn't accidentally click the 'under 13' link when you registered, by any chance?
