Shane McCarthy, the writer of IDW Publishing's series All Hail Megatron, has updated his blog SMAcTALK with an update on his character DRIFT.

Drift was a character I cooked up (with design by Guido Guidi) so it’s a lot of fun to shed some light on just who he is and where he came from.

The initial spark (pardon the pun) for Drift’s creation came about due to two things. Firstly I wanted a character in AHM that had a particular element to him that I didn’t see readily available elsewhere and secondly because, frankly, I thought it would be a great idea for Hasbro to have an Autobot Drift racer.


Shane also reveals that the covers for Issue #10 have been completed, and posts up the two All Hail Megatron #6 Drift covers that have been reported on earlier.

Based on the cover images in this blog, I've gotta agree with him. It would be cool for them to have a drift racer, and even better if Hasbro works from that design.

So, I have to say I'm REALLY psyched to eventually get a toy of this guy. I'm all for new characters.
