Today’s BotCon 2012 toy reveal was Shattered Glass Tracks, an evil Autobot. He’s last year’s Reveal the Shield Turbo Tracks toy in red, black, and blue, so you can also use him as Road Rage if you don’t care for that whole mirrorverse deal. (If you want to read about the origin and history of the red Tracks that would become Road Rage, here’s a good page for it.)
There’s not a whole lot to say about the BotCon toy. It’s a pretty straightforward redeco. It looks like a red Tracks, which is the point, and a goal that’s kind of hard to miss. It’s not like Tuesday’s Overlord, over which one could argue mold use and head sculpting and color layouts. This is straight up an existing variant Tracks color scheme put onto a newer Tracks toy.
