Fasttrack

Nel Yomtov has much to answer for

Fasttrack is a semi-autonomous armored interceptor under the control of the Decepticon Scorponok.

Fiction

Marvel Generation 1 comics

Fasttrack was among the Decepticons under Scorponok's command. They were ambushed while leading captured Autobots on a death-march to Polyhex's smelting pool[1]. Fasttrack seemed caught off-balance by the attack, and was among the first to flee the scene once the retreat was sounded. Ring of Hate!

Note: The comic's mistake-riddled coloring seems to indicate Fasttrack was the fleeing Decepticon Scorponok called a coward after pointing out they were badly outgunned. The robot mode shown was Blot's, however—a mistake also not uncommon in the Headmasters comic.

  • Scorponok with Lord Zarak (Headmaster, 1987)
Japanese ID number: D-93
Available only with the large Headmaster Decepticon Scorponok, Fasttrack transforms into a six-wheeled assault buggy. His axles were designed for quick rolling down the main ramp of Scorponok's city mode.
This mold was also used to make Guardminder.
