So here we have the third installment of the ToyWorld Throttlebots: Trace. This is their take on Chase, and like the two before him, Trace’s alt-mode is based on a real world car design. (CHEEKY!) This time we get a Lamborghini SUV (a concept car at the moment). As there has yet to be any kind of confirmation regarding whether these 6 figures will in fact, be a gestalt as the rumors suggest, things still seem kind of up in the air….sorta. See, TW-01 Rollbar and TW-02 Aurora feature a general similarity in their overall mechanics. Trace here is entirely different. His transformation features no similarities to the first two figures, which leads me to think these will in fact, be a gestalt. Oh, also there’s the arm mode:
So we’ll see what happens. In the meantime, he’s an amazing figure who’s VERY sturdy (the first two had some loose limbs here and there) and features a fun, but complex transformation. Oh, and a Mustache! AWESOME!
Here’s the video review:
