    Will this come with an optional joker face? Joking a side, I hope they improve the work from the City Commander upgrade kit.

    Agreed. They actually ended up handling it well in sending out improved replacement heads to everyone who ordered, but here's hoping that they make sure the product they get out will be right the first time.

    Potentially very interesting. I would just order for sure but am worried about the total fuckup that was their City Commander upgrade.

    They did? I'm still waiting for my replacement head and the rest of the kit was a joke as well: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...52-sg-collect-city-commander-upgrade-kit.html

    BTW that kit was less than 50 bucks, I would hate to see anyone here swindled out of 100 bucks.

    Isn't Hasbro considering releasing a Drift figure in the near future anyway?

    Nope. That was IDW who said Hasbro was going to make an official figure. Hasbro stated there never were plans to make a Drift figure on their side, or future plans for one. So between Hasbro and IDW, someone is not telling us the truth.

    If I thought the toy would be really well done, I'd pony up for it. As it is (vague) and given the track record, I'm not about to toss the cash aside. Between a lot of desirable items out there, there's just a lot major of competition for big ticket TF items. I'll spend mine where I know I'll love what I get.

    EDIT: The robot mode shots looks a little like "Brixshot". ;)

    why bother making a new toy that could be awesome, when there are a million repaints of already sucky molds to be had? i mean... i hope they make a drift toy, but they often don't know what's what.

    i want clearer pics, and also, it says you have to be a member right?

    Yeah it has nothing to do with the fact the line Drift would have been part of was canceled/put on hiatus

    Sweet, hope it's not too expensive(though it is an exclusive, so it probably will be)
