    Custom Dark Drift. He was painted with enamels and I experimented on some flame effects. After that, he was clearcoated with "future" for that gloss finish.

    Wow nice custom man you do know drift was a decepticon before he became drift right and he was called deadlock. I think he also had guns instead of sword but cant be sure.

    You can see a picture of him here

    Nice custom... looks awesome on this figure!

    But yeah, Drift IS a former Decepticon who changed allegiances, and as the above poster mentions, was known as Deadlock. Research! :D

    Man that is slick, nice job! Though if he's Shattered Glass, shouldn't he have a purple Autobot symbol? Regardless, I like the mix of colors with the black, it makes them really stand out.

    Daaamn that is one sick Deadlock right there. I just bought a second Drift to make one of these. I might have to look to yours for some color choices. Your paintwork looks fanatastic

    Since Deadlock probably never had an Earth mode this makes me think of a Superman red Kryptonite situation. Like say he found some bad energon that made him switch back to the dark side

    I think this looks great and if you want to call it Dark Drift instead of Deadlock, you go right ahead.

    yeah really. I don't understand this whole nitpicking over a name.
    that being said, this piece is great. attention to details, bright vibrant colors, killer flames, a great job even if you named him Fred.
