Before he was released the folks at IDW kept saying about how he was going to be a very important character and Transformers' answer to Wolverine. The hatred mostly stems from a) a new character being prioritised over both existing popular characters or existing obscure characters who would've fit the bill and b) the fact that he seemed like a terrible fanboy wish-fufillment character what with being a badass ninja street-racer who Kup loves.

I've not read the comics myself but apparently he's better than he sounds.

This is one example where I really don't care about the background of the character. The figure/the toy is just very nice looking, and that is the only reason I want it.

Agreed. The figure is good, if kibbley (not sure what's going on with his chest but hey, whatever) and I have no real connection to the character for good or for bad.

I do like the stylized Kanji and the whole rice-rocket thing going on. It's pretty rare to see a TF like that.

A bit disapointed meself, I was hoping to be wowed. To be honest I'm a bit disapointed with sideswipe prowl and most of the cars from classics/universe/generations. Ratchet and Ironhide are really impressive though.

Are you sure you don't have that backwards?
If Prowl and Sideswipe disappointed you while Ratchet and Ironhide wowed you, i guess you wanted angular panel gaps along Drift's sides. ;)
I've never read a comic with Drift in it, but this figure looks like an appropriate interpretation of the character in Earth-mode.
I'll definitely get him on aesthetics alone.

I agree with Blurrz. I can see both Blurr and Arcee in this mold. I wish I'd got into Classics\Universe\Henkei\Generations at the time, but it's too late for that now.

Althogh an Arcee would definately tempt me into getting the mold.

What's up with melee weapons all of a sudden? Please let each figure come with a gun of some sort at least.

To be fair he does come with three swords, ninja/samurai is his whole schtick and it's hinted that the Blurr retool will come with different weapons (which may or may not be guns).

I really couldn't see this as a repaint or even a remould into Blurr. Just not enough there to make me think that. I also don't see how they can remould his weapons into guns when the gimmick for Drifts weapons is that they are short and flat enough to fit in the door panels.

Like I said before, the first repaint we see of this character will be his former Deception self Deadlock

Then, I'm almost 100% sure we'll see him used as a Botcon mold for next year, regardless of what the theme is. Maybe Snaptrap as a race car, who knows! :-B

However, and on topic, I friggin' love this figure and I do really like the character. Given the release of ROTF figures on my birthday last year, I see wave one of either Generations or Hunt at the end of may. Plus, every year before that something has ALWAYS been released at retail the last two weeks of may. (last year, ROTF was released a week before it was supposed to be at some walmarts, and a year before that it was B.A. & Ratchet from Animated)

Is it me or did they shorten his main sword? Looks a bit shorter than the promo pics.
