New Galleries: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Drift and Optimus Prime

New Galleries: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Drift and Optimus Prime

Warrior Class - Another day, another gallery update! Today's subjects come from the upcoming Robots in Disguise (2015) Warrior-class range, Drift and Optimus Prime! Drift takes after his appearance in last year's blockbuster Age of Extinction, taking on the form of an orange futuristic sports car that converts into the most honorable of robo-samurais, giving Bludgeon a run for his money! Of note, the Drift featured in these galleries has a small touch-up on his face, his whiskers being Sharpie'd black for a more accurate look. Optimus Prime transforms not only into a truck (as always), but pulls a Motormaster and transforms into the truck and trailer! His weapon of choice in his robot mode is his mighty axe which seems to be an homage to his War for Cybertron incarnation.
