Via Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999, we have a nice, in-depth video review of the upcoming "Flip and Change" Drift! Drift transforms in the same manner as the previous entry to the Flip and Change series, Lockdown. View the video review below!

Y'know, I would actually call these pretty decent figures if the legs could bend properly.

I notice with these gimmick toys the parts of the figure not effected by the gimmick move quite well. The arms on these flip changers are quite nice.

The Flip and Change Lockdown would work really well with Leader Class Optimus (in robot mode, that is), if his legs could just move.
Plus, none of the simplified figures have weapons.

Interestingly enough Prime comes with a sword, maybe because it's Prime?

I think it's because he's more hollowed out than the other figures, due to his gimmick, so the extra plastic in his sword doesn't affect the cost.

It's too bad for the backpack becuse he actually looks much better than I expected for the most part. I like his torso, it is very remeniscent of the cg model and I like it's contrast with his smaller waist. But its too bad that this contrast is lessened with the large amount of back kibble that makes him look wider than he is. And that gun definately straps to his head

Something about him looks... off. Maybe it's the amount of kibble that is visible?

Though now it's pretty definite that his weapon is meant to fit over his noggin.

Evidently, Lockdown likes to keep the windows rolled down. :lol:

I guess he looks OK. It's impossible for me not to compare him to RotF Lockdown, and as unfair as that is AoE Lockdown just doesn't seem impressive in comparison.
Is that clear plastic being used in his joints? That doesn't seem wise...


Also, I wonder how well he can balance with the gun plugged onto his head. His feet are really tiny.

Im greatful for this. Finally a chance to shoot autobots in the face using someone's face.

I wonder if this guy will scale well with Leader Class Optimus? Because the only one so far who seems to fit with him in robot mode is the Flip and Change version, and that's an unposable brick.

Too bad he didn't get the Leader Class treatment. Pass.

Him and Optimus can have a great exchange:

O - "Give me your face!"

L - "Sure." *hands gun*

O - "No, your actual face!"

L - "I just did."

O - "That's a gun."

L - "Transformers, changing things into things.. that's my face."

O - "..."

L - *smiles up from OP's hands*

No comparison, really. RotF Lockdown is amazing.

Optimus Prime can take Lockdown's face (which presumably uses a 5mm peg) and use it as a gun? THIS IS AMAZING.

Great, the main villain is a GoBot.

i really wish they had used the silver they used for the rotf deluxe sideways variant on lockdowns vehicle mode rather than this weird pearly looking brownish color.
