Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest figure gallery:

Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Drift!

The figure is based off of the DOTM Skyhammer mold, but sports a blue and gold colorscheme, new weapons and a new head to bring you Drift in his third mode, a helicopter. The helicopter mode (and transformation to and from) were shown very briefly in this summer's TF film, Age Of Extinction. Considering the difficulties of taking a Bugatti Veyron and turning it into a robot AND a helicopter, a reuse of the Skyhammer mold was the next best possible plan.

Drift is partnered in the newest (and seemingly final) Voyager wave with Dinobot Slog.

I shall get Drift and i will switch back and forward between Drift's head as Drift and another random head as my oc Deadput even though he is normally a purple car.

Hopefully this voyager will make it overhere unless he's an exclusive. On saying that I'm still yet to come across his car mold. Missed my chance for the original mold as well when it was on sale.

I really like this, I'd love to see this guy repainted as Bludgeon, I think he could work as a helicopter.

You'd think they'd go with Springer, given he's a car and helicopter.
Or one of the Deluxe copters *thinks of Blazemaster* Eww, maybe not.


I have Skyhammer, his alt mode is awesome but the legs totally kill the bot mode.

To help you all build up to the new week, in a constructive way, here is fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 with not one but two of his video builds and reviews! Featured this time are the Target exclusive ConstructBot Grimlock and Silver Knight Optimus Prime (a G2esque redeco of the mass retail set) and the more general release of ConstructBot Lockdown and Hangnail - including armour mode. Check both of them out in the embedded videos below!

[quote]While these are the same kits as the mass retail Grimlock and Prime their colors are changed to represent an unreleased G2 design and Target's Silver Knight theme respectively. Still a fun build and Dino Rider Prime has an included sword. Highly recommended. [/quote]



[quote]Since most of the Beast Hunters Constructbots never saw a full retail release, at least in North America, for most of us the Age of Extinction sets are our first look at the new skeleton designs. Much like the Dinobots the vehicle builds, like Lockdown, feature a skeleton built by ball joints,armor attached by C-clips and a spring hinged back/chest for some slight automorph transformation. There has been some debate about whether or not these are improvements or just lateral changes. Lockdown is a fun build that features a more cohesive car mode while its dino armor partner Hangnail adds a fun new degree of interaction with the toy.[/quote]

I love that Lockdown so much I started army-buildin' with it to represent his minions, but I only got one extra set at the Target clearance of $10.00 before they disappeared. Holding off to see if other retailers follow suit, especially because you need extra Drifts to swap out Lockdown's orange for blue to get things slightly more accurate. And Drifts with orange parts make good Bludgeons!

Not as crazy about Hangnail, but at least his feet look cool as shoulder straps when combined. And becoming both armor AND a gun so big that Transformers can't really wield it makes these dino-buddies the spiritual successors to the Action Master partners!

Don't forget the fact that November is pretty damn close to Christmas.

i truly hate the fact that these aren't retail exclusives in the states.

non of the decent exclusives from this line can be found in stores here.. that's awful. oh well, i guess it just makes them that much easier to pass on.

maybe hasbro will learn from the mistakes they've made with this line.. but something tells me they won't.. they'll probably just get rid of the main line figures entirely for the next movie.

And in further repaint exclusive news, check out the following video review from fellow Seibertron.com member grimdragon2001 of the Walmart exclusive two-pack of Bumblebee and Strafe, featuring a minor repaint of Legends Class Bumblebee from Revenge of the Fallen, and a blue version of Beast Wars Basic Terrorsaur!

Toys'R'Us Canada may have just listed the pre-orders for the Transformers: Age of Extinction Breakout Battle set, but fellow Seibertronian gema has it in-hand - and has shared a pictorial review of Rollbar (and some shots of Optimus too) with us! You can find the whole piece on his blog, and some of the images mirrored below.

[quote] He might not be a popular choice and I doubt a lot of collectors would be looking for him. However, aside from the lack of paint on his head (and should've been a different head altogather), Rollbar is somewhat interesting in his own way...especially if you are a mold collector.[/quote]
