Review: Reveal The Shield Turbo Tracks Figure

December has come early, as Reveal The Shield is now leaking out into stores! Starting our 4 figure review block of this new line is Turbo Tracks. His Alternators figure didn't do Tracks full justice, as there was no flight mode. Will this new Deluxe mold fill the bill with it's flight mode? Read this review to find out!

Yeah I think there has been a lack of upgrade sets as of late. I know if there are any in the works we probably wouldnt hear about them for some time tho. Why not a Generations upgrade kit A set that comes with accessories for multiple figures within the line (like Gear of War kinda). Tools for Jack, Fracas for Scourge, cigar and zombie hallucinations for Kup, better wings for Tracks, etc.

They finally got the first wave of Reveal the Shield at the Target where I work in York PA this week. I picked them all up except for Mindset. I must say I am glad to have such a good remake of Tracks (after my namesake), despite his disappointing flight mode. I do like the alternate flight mode posted on youtube better, I am hoping for a fans Project snap on wings.

Thats a shame. Maybe you could just slice off the clips and then slide the handles into Wheeljack's fistThat might work. The tool fits snugly in Straxus' hand just like his pick-axe does. Since he accepts Energon Starscream's weapons, (ignoring having to close his hands, just the space between his thumb and his palm) which are the standard 5mm peg system, (one of the few good things to come out of the Unicron Trilogy) Wheeljack should be able to hold the tools like that as well.

I think you can leave the winglets folding into the door cant you Im sure you could always take those "tools" from Wheeljack and use them as weapons for Breacher, Skullgrin or even as missiles for Skystalker.Then just use the abundance of tools that Animated Ratchet came with. They have those clips if Im not mistaken.That's a no-go. The clips on the ends of Ratchet's tools are much too big. I just tried to clip one of the tools onto DarkmountStraxus to see. (I was too lazy to pull one of the weapons off to compare)Thats a shame. Maybe you could just slice off the clips and then slide the handles into Wheeljack's fist

Not much difference between this Tracks and Takara's Tracks. So I will be picking up Hasbrp's Tracks when he comes out

Got mine at a K-mart today. My third Track (after G1, then Alternator). I was actually more interested in Jazz since I don't have him in my collection, but could not find him. Only 2 things kind of concern me. The chest assembly does not lock, and the missile clip could ware off or get broken. Both possible future problems. Overall, best Track ever, even though the flight mode socks.I probably won't get Wheeljack. For one think, having him hold the end of the missiles as his tools is just stupid. Also, Wheeljack does not need the white winglets.

looks awesome, vangelos' flight mode for trascks looked worlds better than hasbros.

I can't see the video (work blocked YouTube), but the flight mode depicted in this site's review is per the instructions given by Hasbro. I'll have to check the video out tonight.EDIT: Seen it. All he did was extend the arms out and face the arms forward. IMO, doesn't look any better to me. :shrug
