    :redface2:  You have got to be kidding me.

    Does IDW not even realize how much the fandom hates this guy?

    Guess that confirms the miniseries McCarthy mentioned in passing back a couple months ago.

    Seeing how I canceled all my Transformers subscriptions after AHM and various terrible decisions that IDW has made with their continuity. I won't be purchasing this.

    Which is sad I loved the IDW books up until AHM.

    I don't mind Drift, but I don't know if I like him enough to pick this up. I'll wait until I see some previews or something.

    he reeks of a self-insertion fanfiction character. he IS a self-insertion fanfiction character. absolutely cookie-cutter - was a decepticon, now an autobot. brings swords to a gun fight. easily kills enemies with these swords that are a problem for everyone else. has a third sword he refuses to use because that's the only thing giving the character a hint of depth. he plays Go, despite never having been on earth, or to japan.

    the only thing missing is him having a romance with an autobot.

    Unless you're counting Beast Wars, how many former Decepticons that are now Autobots can you think of?

    um.

    you didnt..

    I said he was basically a self-insertion fanfiction character (a mary sue). then I listed the reasons why. being a former decepticon is one of the similarities he has to such horrible creatures. concluded this list by saying the only thing he was missing from your standard TF mary-sue was being in a romance.

    a typical TF mary sue switched sides. has something mysterious about them. is more powerful than established characters. reeks of badass-ness for the sake of badass-ness. has unique weapons that are unlike what the rest of the group is using. often likes japan. has a romance. usually created only so the author can imagine them, as the character, getting it on with a favorite character.

    drift has all of these except the romance.

    so I'm calling it now. this year, Drift is either going to get it on with Arcee, or attempt to kill Hot Rod for getting his secret lover, Ironhide, shot. during this fight he will finally use his third sword, and then go on a quest to kill Sephiroth.

    I'll be pre-ordering this.

    I love all things drift. Sure he may be nothing original, but he's something new and fun without ruining the sacred continuity.

    Decepticons gone good:
    Grimlock, Skyfire, Armada Starscream, and I'm sure there's plenty more since those were just the first 3 that popped in my head.
    It's a pretty common story element. I like to think of Drift though as the Ancestor to Dinobot but with less anger, and more zen.

    This is a problem a lot of people have with him. IDW is re-creating characters for this series. changing personalities, changing origins. so ANY of the hundreds of unused characters could have been used, rather than Drift. there was no need to bring him in.

    initially I didnt have much of a problem with drift. until I found out about the third sword he doesnt use. and then seeing him play Go. The "fuck you, book" call was made shortly after.

    What's Go?

    I haven't read anything this guy's been in but he sounds terrible, animated showed how to do new characters well.
