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.

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.

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.
