Trace is a third-party Transformer who turns into a car. He is an homage to the 1987 Transformers character Chase.
Trace combines with Grind Rod, Aurora and his other team members to form a giant robot.
Trace is unrelated to the Transformers character Tracer.
Prototype images of Trace were posted to the Toyworld web site in May 2013.
Trace was released in December 2013.
The Good Morning, Cybertron! podcast for November 18th, 2013 discussed Trace in the news.
