Bah, I've checked and his sword is not cybertronian, or at least none of the characters from it are in the alphabet.
It's most likely Japanese...

Oh and, LOOK AT DEM JOINTS HATERS!!! Ha!
He's gonna make a great Blurr! Er, so long as he gets the new head and weps promised. :D

He'll be the second best Blurr, right after Animated Blurr.
I don't understand why people say this is too kibbly and unstreamlined to be Blurr and then praising Armada Blurr in the same sentence.

This is Armada Blurr:

And this is his alt-mode:

Hanging off his back he's almost as bad as Universe Silberbolt.

Ball jointed wrists . . . it's about time! That should be the standard for the figures from now on.

If you like the aesthetics of Animated, then that Blurr is obviously the best. I, for one, loathe the animated designs. So Animated Blurr doesn't even come up as a blip on my radar.

As for Drift, he looks like a heck of a toy. I probably won't buy him, but I can appreciate how good he looks. I still don't see Blurr coming out of that mold.

In the video he says he doesn't know why they left out the waist articulation: it's because of the way the large sword attaches to the back. I'm surprised to say I'm looking forward to this and Blurr.

Oh that wasn't praising the Animated stuff, I like them but I know and understand why people don't like them as I hate the animation style myself. It was more a stab at people who claim that Drift would make for a crap Blurr as it's not as awesome as Armada Blurr since it's too kibbly and not at all streamlined. :roll:
Up to date Animated Blurr is the only Blurr to have almost full articulation and actually being streamlined, till Drift gets his Blurr treatment that is. ;)

I don't think Drift would make a bad Blurr, but in my limited capacity, I'm not seeing the fit. I do agree that whatever mold is used needs to be streamlined in both modes. So in that sense, Animated Blurr does fit the bill. I am VERY anxious to see the Blurr version of this mold.

I too can't wait to see the Blurr version, the fit comes from the idw comics in which they share the same design, save for the head and the doors hanging off the hips.

Cool toy, but somethin about the reviewer made me want to smash my face into my monitor.

People who say Hasbro makes nothing but junk compared to Fansprojects really needs to take a good, hard, look at Drift here.

I gotta say that's a toy I want, even if what I've heard of the character does nothing for me. And there's just somethign about comic-first guys that i like.

I just need *one* version of this mold, though, so I just won't get Blurr. Animated Blurr looks fine in my collection as Blurr anyway ... but I don't see any use in complaining about more Blurr love. If you don't think Drift will make a good Blurr, don't buy it.

Has/Tak comes out with some wonderful toys sometimes and this mould is one of them by the looks of it.


But WHY OH WHY did they have to waste such a wonderful bit of engineering on a contrived Mary-sue character like Drift?!? :BOOM: We still do not have a Classics/Universe/Generations Jazz, Wheeljack, or Tracks, deluxe size cars this 'slot' in the line would have been better for. And important characters like Galvatron get crappy moulds...

:BANG_HEAD: Sigh.

At least we are going to get a Blurr retool from this awesome looking mould. And if the rumours of a Kup in the near future are true, we could have a nice little season 3 Autobot cast going on with Protector, Defender and City Commander.

This is my argument.. Too much kibble and not enough streamline in bot mode especially..

I am interested in seeing how they make him into Blurr also.

I'm liking this figure a lot and I've no problem with Drift as a character either. However, I will go out on a limb here and say that Blurr deserves his own unique mold. I honestly can't see a Blurr figure coming out of this.

Looking forward to the repaints of this guy! White is just so vanilla.

Really? Over 9 minutes and we didn't even see the transformation... I may be in the minority here, but I find the transformation to be about 90% of the whole reason for a video review...otherwise pics can cover most of the other info well enough.

Am I getting this figure? Well, let's ask my buddy Cartman here.

This is an amazing figure. The articulation is wonderful. My two cons are the rubber swords and the lack of a waist swivel. Otherwise.. :APPLAUSE:

Hasbro, I grant you to make as many repaints of this figure that you would like. lol
