    Perceptor? Looking badass? Jinkies, Scoob, I didn't see that one comin'... But I like it.

    That Wreckers shot, Does Roadbuster look like Tankor from BM to anyone else, or he is juicin'?

    does it seem obvious to anyone else that Drift will get repainted as Tracks?

    Yes. Yes it is.

    Isn't it a bit funny that he has a little drop down cross-hair eyepiece? I mean he's a big frigging robot - couldn't he have that built in? :D

    That was my thought. Probably why Hasbro decided to make a toy of him.

    Drift is Bad-ASS incarnate with The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift style and a huge-ass sword mixed in, and will certainly will be one heck of a cool toy. As for being the first Comic to toy charicter...I thought that was Over-Run the mini-con from Dreamwave's Armada comic that came with Bendy Prime's first version? (The scrapped intro with him for the cartoon doesn't count since it never was shown on actual television.).

    I'm sure Over-run was designed for the toy and added into the comic, but other than that.
    This is the first IDW original character to get a toy.

    We've gotten comic characters before. Like The Fallen.

    Oh yeah, point taken. I still want Drift though, as he's still a total Bad-Ass.

    I'll take that Kup as a toy, too, as long as he looks that cool. My Ani. Ratchet needs someone to exchange war stories with:lol

    Hm, very inaccurate article. There have been plenty of comic TF's turned into toys.

    Get me a Nova Prime or a Straxus, and I will kiss you, Matt.

    Tongue, no tongue, your choice.

    Roadbuster is a Monster! I like the Perceptor character, and I have to say the blue frenzy using his disruptor ability instead of the pile drivers is a breath of fresh air. It bugged me a bit when both Frenzy and rumble used the pile drivers and frenzy lost his disruptor ability.

    We don't know. They might not even have a model yet.

    I like that cover with the fists raised in the air behind the Autobot symbol. Means it´s time to lay down the smack down on Megatron. His charade has lasted long enough.
