Most fans of Generation 1 know a few of the ongoing fan-made conjectures, such as Beachcomber is a hippie, Arcee is kind of a swinger bettern Hot Rod and Springer, and of course, Track seems so very… very… fabulous?
This is a pretty common consideration amongst the Transformers fanbase including a specific group of Botcon-goers that refer to themselves as the Friends of Tracks. The name of this non-official group is based on the assumption that Track is in fact a gay robot. This has trickled out beyond just the hardcore Transformers fan base as indicated by this top 10 I recently found: “The Top Ten Ambiguosly Gay Action Figures.”
Tracks receives the 9 spot on the blog, and it seems rightly so. My favorite part is the description of Raul as a “hot hispanic boy.”
I for one commend the vigor of G1 Tracks and I hope some day he too can feel free to join his human breatheren in celebrating his sexual orientation. Until then, we will continue to raise an eyebrow at the flame-decal toting Corvette of awesome.
