Wonder if this has anything to do with that Drift Skyhammer repaint we saw the other day?

I have no doubt about it. The color placement is about right (though this is a dark gray rather than the blue we're used to seeing on Drift toys), it's almost the right shape, and it's got missile pods like the Skyhammer mold has. Plus, it's got an Autobot faction symbol slapped on the side, so that narrows it down some.

Do you remember the TV commercial for Transformers: Age of Extinction One Step Change Optimus Prime? Now, the official Transformers YouTube channel have uploaded a behind the scenes video, showing the Western Star Optimus Prime truck and GM Chevrolet 2014 Camaro Bumblebee car - check it out below!

Remember on deluxe Drifts toy it says he used to be a decepticon.


I believe this is when Drift is a Decepticon in the early part of the movie but for marketing sake they package him as an Autobot so they can get him off the shelf because for some reason kids dont buy decepticons anymore despite them having good guys with no bad guys to fight.

Or they have an Autobot symbol on it to try and avoid spoilers about it starting the movie as a Decepticon, like they did in the ROTF line releasing the Blackout repaint as Grindor to cover that Blackout was back for the sequel

I'm not sure how this relates to Drift possibly being the mystery chopper. :???:

Not sure if this belongs here, but I picked up Leader Grimlock the other day, interesting comparison to MP Grimlock. Note that Leader Grimlock is slightly modified to shorten his dino-torso and hand-wield his shield. Heh-heh, poet.

They put an autobot symbol on the chopper to not spoil the plot point that Drift starts the movie as a Decepticon then switches sides.

While Scorn is arguably the best of the AOE wave 1 deluxes I'm pleased to say that it's Constructbots counterpart holds up just as well. The colors really pop and need to be seen in hand to fully appreciate the brightness. Crosshairs is really fun and I think it's great how you can tilt the car hood to get a trench coat like flow going. Highly recommended.

But I still don't understand how Blackout and Grindor have to do with anything. For the record, Blackout and Grindor are completely separate characters.

Blackout never came back plus Grindor was in the trailers and it was said they are separate.



We never saw Blackout come back to life (cons had one shard)

While similar Grindor is a different chopper from Blackout

The games call him Grindor so do the toys and he is never called Blackout in rotf so I'm sure it is safe to call him Grindor.

If the helicopter toy has an Autobot symbol to hide the fact that Drift used to be a Decepticon, then that is a pretty pointless thing to do since the bio for Drift on Hasbro.com already explicitly gives away that he used to be a Decepticon.

Drift is a master of ancient weaponry who always remains calm and controlled during combat. Long ago, he fought for the DECEPTICONS. The scars of battle changed his thinking, and now Drift wields his swords for good as a member of the AUTOBOTS!

You would think a T-rex was a good bedside bully :lol:

I'd much rather take him to work and hurl him at my work mates head.

Hopefully she's too stunned to throw him back at me.

The Transformers Columbia Facebook page continues giving us looks at upcoming Evolutions 2-packs. This time we get our first look at the Optimus Prime Evolutions 2-pack. The set consists of repaints of Classics Optimus Prime and Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. The Classics mold Prime features a G1 deco with chrome thighs, bumper and grill. The Evasion Mode Prime gives us added flames in both alt and robot modes. He also features a head with a faceplate.

That wasn't blackout in ROTF? I thought it was, my bad.

They finally got it right. :APPLAUSE: And just when I was about to buy the standard version.

So basically you can get the Evasion mode Prime with chrome, and a faceplate, in the two pack with Grimlock

OR

Evasion mode Prime without chrome, closer G1 robot mode, with flames, and a faceplate with the 6th or 7th domestic release of the Classic Prime mold, with chrome. Don't know about you but I'm having a hard time figuring out which set I want.

Well, I still don't have that classics Optimus mold, and was never able to get any of its other releases. Very, very tempted by this two pack.
