New Images of SG Collect's Drift Model

Postby DevastaTTor » Wed May 27, 2009 5:29 am

Third-party model maker SG Collect has updated their blog with new images of a completely assembled prototype of its DFT-01 model kit, aka Drift. The model is seen unpainted in the photos but they do clearly show the figure's scale, weapons, and alt/robot modes.

According to the post, the unassembled and unpainted kit will be released at an unnamed convention sometime later in 2009 and will cost SG Collect members around 110 Singapore dollars (about 75 USD).

I'm a little confused. This is limited to 300 pieces and going to be available at some con this summer, but they are taking pre-orders. Looks like $100.00 for overseas buyers, but do you have to be a member to pre-order?

I'm wondering if it's going to be released/formally available at a convention but not as an exclusive.

Now, I've not been reading the comics. Is Drift actually a good character, or is he a shallow personification of OMFG NINJ45 IS AWES0M3?

Not so much that ninjas are awesome. More like former decepticon who was trained by secret 3rd faction who are neutral, and now fights with ridiculously huge swords to make up for all the bots he previously killed :P

It is a nice kit and looks very promising. Not sure if I want it though

Ugh. Yeah, sounds about right.

I remember when IDW said they wanted Drift to be "their Wolverine". I was thinking "Angry asshole who kicks ass, fails completely to listen to reasonable authority, gets severely overused and is always underestimated (by opponents, not writers or fans). Somehow fails to get court-martialed and instead gets moved to leadership positions. Constantly argues with saner, better teammate."

...but we already have Grimlock for all those things...

Diem, Drift isn't like that at all actually. He seems calm and remorseful about those that he has killed and isn't trying to redeem himself. He's looking to help out who he can however he can. Even at the cost of his own life, since he has already gotten his second chance. It's not about second chances with him. He's moving forward from his past (for now) and wanting to help.

Not Wolverine-like.

:shock: Is he...is he actually a good character?

I pretty much gave up on IDW after Spotlight: Nightbeat.

Well, that hard to answer objectively. I personlly like him. Has a character like him been done before. Yeup. But what character hasn't. He's only had 1 issue to have any focus on and it was fast. He has some characterization in AHM, but then you are also dealing with a much larger cast and he can get lost in that as well. But Bumblebee seems to really dislike him.

He seems (to me) that he is really trying to be a better bot, no matter what some of the current bots think about him (BB). The nice thing was that when BB was coming down hard on him, for being and ex D-con, Hot Rod stuck up for him. You notice that Perceptor is different in the IDW-verse? Well, he was like old G1 Perceptor till something happened, and Drift ended up being the bot that saved him while jumping out of a burning Decepticon cruiser. So Percy and Drift kinda have a buddy type bond now, even though Percy ain't himself. He's like a super sniper now. Again IDW...

Sorry for that, but it's best for you to judge if YOU like him or not. Me. I like him. But maybe some of that might give you a lil insight to him.

I'm still not a big fan of the brick-like alt mode but the bot mode looks really nice.

I wish Takara would produce this if they resume the Henkei line. I'd buy it.

Well, I just put an order in for him. It's supposed to ship out after their convention in Singapore around mid July. I'll scream bloody murder if I don't get it. I made sure to use Amex with Paypal.

I gotta admit I wasn't very impressed when I saw the first pics, but it's shaping up quite nicely. I'd be interested, but considering it's a kit and I have no assembly or painting skills, I'll have to pass. Also it's rather expensive for a character who's pretty much a novelty to me, at this point.

Let's hope if Hasbro ever makes a Drift toy it turns out half as good as this.

Did a little reading on the SGCollect forums. The guys who seems to be in charge states the figure should be less difficult to assemble than a 1/144 Gundam, which is pretty simple IMHO. He also states painting will for the most part be optional, the pieces should be pre-molded in the correct colors. I'm assuming just the details will require painting. I'm still not sure how this is a con exclusive when apparently anyone can place for order one. I went ahead followed the instructions for overseas buyers and paid $100.00 via paypal, $85.00 for the set $15.00 for shipping. He says there should be a colored prototype in less than a month. Hopefully I didn't just waste $100.00.

Well, I've just paid the $100 as well, transformers with swords are just plain awesome.

Let's hope it turns out well!

The character is pretty cool but I think IDW could just have used a pre-existing character. Stepper/Ricochet would have got my vote.
