I just got mine, and I love him.

Probably get Dead End because I like the color scheme, but I'm certainly happy with Sideswipe.

I'm confused. Why are people complaining that much about it being Dead End and not Sunstreaker? If I've understood correctly, the Alternators are focused mainly to collectors. And when it's sitting on the shelf looking way cool, what difference does it make what name it has?

Bah, the Tracks mold looks better in that shade of yellow than it would have in blue anyways. Bloody idiots.

You know, there's people out there who threatened to kill the producers of Lois & Clark because they dared change the shape of Superman's belt buckle, and we all know Superman won't be the same larger-than-life icon without a properly shaped belt buckle...

I.e. fanboys stupid, I rock.

I think the head on dead end looks a little different that the Sunstreaker head. Who knows, I might be wrong. I still like him and will purchase him when he is available. I also like Sideswipe, including his color scheme. I don't see what the problem is.

This is really good:

Quote:
had to create an account for this

1. I will not buy tracks unless he is blue. I hate yellow cars in real life. And also Tracks was....BLUE

2.Dead end is cool and all, very nostalgic, but I will not buy him. I was hoping for sunstreaker as I am sure we all were.
Translation: "I am a jerk living in my mommy's basement and Hasbro suXX0rZ because they don't do toys according to my demands. Hasbro could relase Transformers that **** money, I still won't buy them, as I didn't demand them being released."

tformers posters are a bunch of feckin' idjits . . .

I'm pleased with Tracks. Very pleased. Can't wait for him, in fact.

Dead End is a bit chubby for my taste. I'll really have to be at the store when I make that decision.

It's really a joke.

Anyway, I like them both.
I do not care about who they really are.
Whatever happens to SUNSTREAKER, Hasbro and TAKARA will give us a new story.
Maybe we will see a "Transformers Alternators" Comic book by Dreamwave Productions one day...

ehh i will have to get Dead End he look great.. but Tracks... i might get him it depends on what he looks like on the shelf... Yellow Vettes are common around here it would have looked good in blue but that would be too expected...Silver ir even green would have been great color choices... who knows.. maybe the con versions will have more differences then just color

I really don't think they'll be able to make it possible to stick them together and built a Menasor, though.


The fanboy whining that Nevermore linked to is hilarious.

a yellow Tracks is sacrilege
*lightning strikes Hasbro headquarters, and a booming voice from the sky says, "Thou shalt make thy Tracks blue, for a yellow Tracks is an abomination unto the Lord!" * :rolleyes:


I like Tracks as he's now. In fact, I want one.


The part marked with " :rolleyes: " is a joke, obviously.

Tracks was a fashion whore. Yellow is now the hottest colour for Corvettes. The change isn't exactly a stretch of character, is it?

Of course, most fanboys know bugger all about cars...

I reckon Its F***ING BULL**** that dead end wasnt Sunstreaker. I mean, Streaker had the BEST personality out of any of the 'bots and a kickass toy.

And with the Decep alternators thing, the seekers SHOULD have been F-22 raptors, Like Ener. Starscream

The only thing that will ease the pain is a combnination feature for the Deceps (ala Menasor), but I think its too much to ask for Hasbro to get its F***ing glasses on>

Maybe it went something like this.

Hasbro: Hey, we've got a remolded Sunstreaker. I guess
he's gonna be black.

Fans: OMG TRACKS IS THE WRONG COLORS
HASBRO HAS NO RESPECT FOR CHARACTERS.

Hasbro: Hrm. Maybe we better make this, uh, a Stunticon.
Well, we don't have "Wildrider", and he has Dead End's colors,
so if we do Dead End first and then make a Yellow Sunstreaker
later on, fans will appreciate our decision. Besides, we get all
those damn emails asking for Decepticons.

Fans: OMG SUNSTREAKER IS A DECEPTICON AND THE
WRONG COLORS HASBRO HAS NO RESPECT FOR
CHARACTERS

Hasbro: Screw you guys.

Question

Don't know about Tracks, but that pic of Dead End is not of the completed product...probably. The proto that we all saw some time ago had a molded Autobot symbol on it's chest, while this one, well...seems to have a Decepticon sticker :P

Don't mind me, might as well be wrong again

Hasbro should just stop making Transformers for, I dunno, six months. Let's watch Takara carry the line worldwide, see how low their prices pay and see what BBTS charge you on import for a Binaltech when there isn't a plastic version in Toys R Us.

Y'know, it's wankers like those that make me hesitate to describe myself as a Transformers fan. I love TFs, but I don't want to be associated with cumstains gone wrong who can't deal with name reuse. The best part of most of TFormer's posting populace, and anyone who agrees with them, dried on their mother's thigh after a knee-trembler in a backstreet.
