    Not being much of a comics reader, I'm not that bothered with the character. However, this toy looks pretty badass, I'll be picking it up if it comes to the UK.

    I know nothing about the character but I'm pretty excited about the figure.

    Typically that kind of hip kibble bugs me, but on this figure it doesn't for some reason (maybe because they hold swords).

    As for the character, I haven't read the comics so I'm not familiar with how awesome/terrible he is. Regardless, he's not going to be Drift in my collection anyway. I'm calling him "Peg". :)

    Personally I'll be waiting for Blurr, as I don't care for Drift as a character. The toy design itself does look really nice, and should be interesting to see how the retooling looks for Blurr. Especially the new weapons.

    I didn't know they were making a Blurr with this mold. I'll go with the Blurr version.

    Really excited for this guy, especially since I'm one of the few who like his character.

    Yeah He's cool but I have no connection to this character as I don't read the comics. I will be waiting for Blurr to go with my season 3 classics/universe/generations figures. Gesh, these names are getting long for Classics! LOL

    Same here. I may pick one up to fiddle around with or possibly kitbash or something, but Drift won't be making the collection shelf. I don't read the comics, so the character means little to me.

    Blurr is another story however, and I really hope the Henkei line picks back up alongside Generations.

    I've not really liked any of the Henkei versions of the Classic/Universe characters. All they seem to do is remove lots of visual interest and then dip random parts in chrome. (Although I do have a Henkei Cyclonus. I wants my pink Transformer damnit!)

    I have only recently started reading the IDW stuff, so I haven't got up to Poochie... I mean Drift yet. It it quite neat though that they're doing characters from different corners of the TF universe. This and Straxus are more interesting than yet-another-Bumblebee, or another one of the seekers.

    I don't have a problem with Drift in the slightest and I'll be purchasing both it and Blurr. The toy looks awesome and will be a welcome addition to my collection.

    I hope they find a way to give the Decepticon version of Drift a toy, whatever its name was.

    I'm definitely getting both Drift and Blurr. The mold looks great.

    I'll get him. I don't read the comics so I don't care about that. He looks pretty cool.

    I'll be grabbing him, he doesn't look as good as the other WFC molds, but he does look really good. The lack of articulated toes does detract from the mold a little bit though
