We have what could be our first glimpse of Transformers: Age of Extinction's Drift from a bit of an unlikely source. The popwars Instagram account has posted an image featuring a trio of Funko style prototypes, which they are referencing as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Drift. Prime and Bee are obvious, but the third character they've labeled Drift is all new. As you can see the figure has a Samurai styled appearance, and early script rumors did describe Drift as a Samurai type character. These type figures are of course very stylized, but this may be our first look at Drift in robot mode none the less.

Transformers coming soon! Drift , Prime and BumbleBee most likely from the New movie releasing. #funko #popwars #transformers #bumblebee

Wow that is really hard to extrapolate what "Drift" will look like.

"Drift" looks so simplistic compared to Optimus and Bumblebee there I kinda doubt he's really part of Transformers. I mean, I really wouldn't mind TF4 taking a simpler aesthetic, but seeing how Optimus and BB totally aren't I can't help but think "Drift" was pulled from some unrelated samurai line.


Also, I really hope final Optimus doesn't have a derpy spaced-out expression he seems to have here.

As opposed to when other TFs go "full samurai" in other works?

Why is it okay for someone like Bludgeon but not for Drift here?

Because Drift is a douche.

Bludgeon isn't.

Bludgeon isn't.
Didn't Roberts bring him around with a more positive portrayal?

Either way, this Drift obviously isn't that Drift.

:APPLAUSE:

Also, Bludgeon was a pretender taking the form of a skull faced Samurai, so he's got a legitimate excuse... er.. sorta. :DANCE:

Then this happened:



Not to mention the myriad of other Samurai-themed Transformers.

Kenzan, Jinbu, and Ganoh of recent spring to mind.

To each their own. I've never liked the character and I doubt his movie-verse version will change my mind.

Best use of a TF Samurai? Animated Prowl.

I noticed that too. There's so much detail on Optimus and Bumblebee, but Drift barely has any. Maybe it's unfinished or something.

Eh, watch him just get shifted into the background like every other Autobot who isn't Optimus, Bumblebee, Skids, Mudflap, Wheelie, and Sentinel Prime. :P

Looks smooth to me, especially when compared to the other 2 unpainted prototypes next to it. I can see plenty of intricate detail on them.
