I've been out of the loop for a bit but now that Im back...Since when is Matt Trakker a Joe? isnt that the dude who had a the Camaro in M.A.S.K? Whats that about?
Why is Mainframe now Dataframe? (believe it or not I totally dig that guy, just not sure why they changed his name) And I guess the same question goes for "Double Clutch" and Shock"blast".
Maybe I just dont remember but...Wraith?
Lastly with drivers being released individualy, what do you think the odds are of seing Payload sometime soon?

Trakker was done as a tribute figure. The name changes are due to naming rights expiring.
Wraith is from the Devils Due Comic run.
I doubt we'll see Payload any time soon with the movies coming up and the products being geared toward that.

Trakker was just made for retro fun because hasbro owns Kenner now. The name changes are due to legal issues I believe. Other companies, even non-toy ones may have rights to original names. Shockblast is a mystery to me, because hasbro has been calling their transformer with the same name shockblast for the past few years, but I think it's newest version is called shockwave, which would suggest they own the name again. The other tactic used to avoid lawyers is to add a rank before the name. No idea on Payload. Would love to see him, but it may be unlikely without any other spaced-themed vehicles, but here's hoping. If he is released, look forward to regular posts insisting that he is proof that a defiant announcement is coming "any day now" for the next year or two.

Matt Trakker was made to infuriate people who wanted hasbro to make obscure figures that did not sell well in the 80's.
The Wraith is one of the best figures in the line. Get one of those and send it up to Vancouver and let TheTransTorture give it a detail paint job, fix the arm hoses, and apply some battle damage. Pure win
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."
