There was once a prophecy that there would emerge the greatest looking Autobot of all and his name would be Tracks!
Tracks is simply the greatest thing in the Autobot army, at least that's how he sees it. He dismisses those who think he is not the best looking Autobot of all time, calling them a bunch of "haters". If you take enough time to admire his form, you will eventually learn to appreciate him as much as he appreciates himself. However, to date, this theory has yet to be proven. One quality no Autobot will dispute is Tracks' bravery. He is always willing to be one of the first to charge into battle with the goal of destroying more enemies than anyone else, all in an effort to prove how utterly amazing he truly is. In vehicle mode he can achieve a maximum speed of 300 MPH. If he needs to move faster he can transform into a flying car, allowing him to achieve sub-sonic speeds. He is armed with two heat-seeking missile launchers and a weapon that disrupts the energy flow inside enemies causing unpredictable malfunctions, most commonly the loss of sight. Tracks' greatest weakness is his tendency to admire himself in a reflection while in the midst of battle, making him an easy target.

Prelude: Many thanks to fellow TF-fan Tracks, who lent me his Tracks for this review.

Remarks: Turbo Tracks from the 2012 Botcon set is a straight-up repaint of Reveal the Shield Turbo Tracks, so just some words on the differences here. Tracks' paint job pays homage to the Road Rage repaint of the original G1 Tracks. Of course Road Rage wasn't the evil mirror-universe counterpart of Tracks, but this one here is. Tracks appeared in the Botcon 2012 exclusive comic "Invasion!", but did little more than stand around in the background. According to his profile he doesn't really differ much from his heroic Autobot counterpart. And... yeah, I can't really write much more than that. He's a red repaint of Tracks. That's pretty much it. Still a great figure, but considering that he's "just" a repaint yet much, much more expensive, I'll have the lower the rating somewhat.
