    i remember reading somewhere IDW drift having a toy. I remember him supposedly being a universe toy with a Nissan S15 based alt mode. Any more news on this. From the concept drawing he looked pretty cool. I found the pics of the concept art. Mods please feel free to remove the pics if they are against the rules.

    There isn't a toy yet, but there is word that it's coming. I've no idea when, though.

    Yeah, nothing new on this guy yet. It was just stated at the IDW panel that Hasbro saw the design and decided that it would be the first IDW character that they'd do a figure for. My guess would be that it'll get released in Universe at some point either during the 25th portion or after, but who knows as Hasbro themselves really didn't have anything to say about it themselves. So, all our information about this guy becoming a toy is from IDW and not Hasbro and we all know how plans can change like that.

    Well, it certainly helps his case that he isn't a tank though... Hasbro seems to be fine with loads of cars, but doesn't like it if there's too many different tanks on the market at once.

    He should be voyager sized!
    Too many deluxe cars.

    A larger-than deluxe cars would be funny in a normal line.

    :lol 

    Heaven forbid they give us another tank... I mean, there's a total of three in the line already (oh, does Onslaught suddenly count as a tank now? Nahh...) if you count Galvatron, Legends Megatron and Legends Warpath (who isn't even out yet)... am I missing anyone?

    Yeah, this just doesn't make sense to me either... unless they've got some weird study showing that tanks just don't sell well or some crap...

    Well, he'd look good with the Alts... or not if they don't give him the Alternators intricacy (and they probably wouldn't as that's not the point of this line).
