Isn't SGCollect the same one that f***ed up Ultra Magnus' head?

Really annoys me that Hasbro isn't releasing him in the Universe line.

But by you saying that, I think you now "get it". This sucker does look pretty sweet, but man, at 300 pieces its gonna be like pulling healthy teeth to get one.

Can't wait to see the completed version now.

Hey bro, don't get mad yet. In TF lore Drift is still an embryo. Only us hardcore fans really know about him. Let the word get out, that may change.

I mean, remember those Wheelie and Cyclonus kits that were out a while ago? Heavy demand and BAM! We get Universe versions.

My annoyance comes from the fact that we were told he would get a figure then they jerked the rug out from under us. I never would have expected him to get figure otherwise. Oh well if this looks good enough I may fork out the riduculous amount of cash it will cost to aquire one, it's never stopped me before if I really wanted something.

Maybe I'm misrembering, but didn't it go something like this:

IDW:Yeah, Hasbro are totally going to make a Drift figure.
HASBRO: Yeah, that's not gonna happen.

My rememberance is something like:

Hasbro: Huh? Who told you that?

I seem to remember a little more commitment (initially) from Hasbro towards IDW and THEN Hasbro backed out before they were trapped in a position where they would actually have to follow through on any promise to the fans. Typical Hasbro crap, pull something like that and then pin it on someone else.
This model kit is the closest we are ever going to come to this figure so enjoy the pics. while you can folks. Hasbro wont give it to us and I dont forsee FP or any other 3rd party group hanging in there long enough to produce one either. Box up the stuff you have folks cause this hobby/obsession of ours is rapidly going down the crapper.

Um...when did they do that before? I've never known Hasbro to promise to make a figure and not go through with it. Maybe they said something like "We'd like to consider making a Drift figure in the future" or "We'd be interested in adding the figure to the Universe line" and IDW or IDW fans drew their own conclusions.

Really? Between Universe, Masterpiece and Alternity it seems like a really good time to be an old-school fan.

well... I dunno if they promised this figure but that Shockwave a couple of years ago looked pretty sweet and didn't get released. The Seacons were suppose to be a walmart exclusive and then it turned into a convention exclusive. I can't think of anymore......
