    I wonder if there'll be a Deadlock re-do of that Generations Droft toy on the back of this...

    So the character on page 1 is Drift in his original Decepticon form?

    Drift was said to have an completely different image as a Decepticon.


    Now that you mention it, it does look like Drift a bit. He has that evil Japanese (Super Robot) Transformer bad-guy vibe LOL!

    Cant wait for this series :D

    That artwork is really nice! That shot of, I assume, Deadlock reminds me of RID Megatron.

    I'm not one of those that think Drift is lame but I would rather see other bots' being given more attention. Either way I'll look forward to reading this series

    Yeah but that wouldn't stop Hasbro from just repainting the Drift toy into Deadlock at some point. I originally thought he'd make a good base for a Tracks repaint but after seeing the toy I'm not to sure that would work out well

    I'll be picking this up art rocks. Curious to see Drift back story I'd be cool if they paired him with a familiar face like Tracks with Jazz. Perhaps Springer, Perceptor, or Blurr? Thats if its not all in the past.

    Cue Deadlock retool from Hasbro. Is that Skyjack I see chilling in between his legs?

    Speaking of re-uses of the mould, if Fun Pub ever do a Shattered Glass Drift, it would be an interesting reflection on the regular version's detractors if his nickname there was Eihcoop...

    IDW really has some bizarre decisions. There are tons of established characters that deserve a four issue mini way more than Drift. Jazz, Prowl, Omega, Prime himself since we don't even know how he became Prime. I don't mind Drift having a Spotlight but a 4 issue mini?

    Darn, I got all excited thinking that was Black Shadow, but then I had a closer look at his toy on the TFWiki and it's definitely not. Darn.

    I could really care less about Drift, but I do like that artwork a lot.

    I would like to see a Sideswipe Sunstreaker mini, but I don't think Prowl and Omega are strong enough characters in IDW's world for a 4 issue mini. With Dirft being the new guy with all hype and no action, this was necessary.

    As for Optimus Prime, I'm up for anything with his name on it! But I think that story got sidetracked by WFC much like The 13 did. For some reason Hasbro has issues with Optimus' origin being told.

    OH Hasbro had issues with IDW telling a Prime origin? Didn't know that. I always thought it was odd that Megs got one and not Prime. I don't hate the Drift character, I just wish other established characters had a received a mini before him. Guess we'll get to see his commanding officer Turmoil in this.

    Milne rhymes with "win". True story!

    Looking forward to getting my hands on this one.

    With a toy of him coming out this fall, it makes perfect sense that they would want to highlight him to boost the toy's sales. After all, they did create him.

    I personally kind of like Drift's character. We really haven't even gotten much of his story yet, which is why I think this will be a good way to continue to build the character.That cover for issue #1 looks great! I'm looking forward to this series. It'll probably be a LOT better than Bumblebee. I'm not a big fan of Shane, but he's at least a lot better than Zander. And Milne is WAAAAAAAY better than Chee.

    Don't worry. There ARE 4 issue mini's coming for other characters as well. We know there's an Ironhide one coming. Since they just finished a Bumblebee one, and are doing Drift and Ironhide, it wouldn't surprise me if they have more of them coming in the future.
