New Generations Thrust & Drift Images - Transformers News
I'm not sure about the Drift pictures, but the Thrust pictures have definitely been seen before.
Thrusts cockpit definitely looks chromed. Combine that with the chrome on the mail-away Ravage figure, and it looks as though hasbro is slowly getting back into chrome.
Thrust will definitely be the first Generations figure I buy, and Prime's the only other one in the first wave I'll probably be getting (not sure about Bee yet). Drift looks cool, but as I don't like him as a character, I'll be waiting for the Blurr repaint/retool.
I swear it looks like the US version of Thrust still has the chromed cockpit interior.
I like the Drift toy. I look forward to the Blurr repaint/remould.
Just a suggestion, but any chance if putting the images in the first post in he future when they're hosted on tfw? Much easier to discuss when they're right there instead of having to go between windows, especially when using an iPhone...
Anywho, Drift looks nicer with every pic. Hopefully the toy itself will be nifty.
Thrust=bought. Drift? Meh. Not really impressed.
I was already going to get Thrust, who BTW is looking a lot better now. Except his face paint is a little lighter gray than I'd like it to be. Nothing could sway me on him, but Drift is just way to sexy to pass up.
If I ever get Drift, I´m gonna give him a handgun to go with the sword, because screw the hole "I don´t use firearms" bullshit. He also looks awesome.
Drift is just screaming a vehicle mode Cheetor/Tigatron to me.
Both Generations Drift and Thrust = MUST BUY!
Man, sweet pictures, clear and crisp! Ahhh.
Drift looks great! I really like how the potentially bland white shell is broken down by the black robot limbs. For the Blurr repaint, they could probably make the legs look more slender by painting the shins a different color than the car parts.
My suspicion is that a metallic yellow painted interior plus the transparent yellow cockpit are creating the illusion of chrome.
This year is going to be so good to be a collector...these are just the beginning
Thrust, got the Botcon one so I'll be passing. Though, I still think it's totally awesome for them to release him with some changes (essentially he's just the Henkei version of Thrust released stateside) for those that couldn't get the Botcon versions. Now they need to bring on Thundercracker and Dirge for everyone that didn't get the Botcon set.
Drift... never did like the character while reading AHM, but I did gain some respect for him once I read his Spotlight. I love the figure though... very nice. Still not sure if I want to replace Cybertron Blurr with the Generations Blurr remold though.
Such a good idea!
I like Drift, looks cool holding those knives. Thrust is rather awesome as well.
All of the 2010 Generation toys will be mine. Cant wait for Thrust. Now how long do we have to wait to get Thundercracker and Dirge? I mean come on already Hasbro. Drift looks cool, cant wait for him. Never read the comics and dont know much about him but he looks cool, and i cant ever pass up a bot with swords.
I thought the same thing the first time I saw these pics. Drift's head looks exactly like Tigatron
Man, I'd love to see Cheetor and/or Tigatron out of this mold...
Oh! Definitely need both of them though. My Classics/Henkei line up need more characters.
Drift does tend to echo more Tigatron/Cheetor then anyone else.
I cannot wait for Generations to start. It feels like we haven't had something new in ages.
I can already tell that Drift is probably gonna be one of my favorite figures. Both of these are bought on sight.
