    So when I heard that 2012 exclusive was "shattered glass" drift.. I couldn't help but be a bit disappointed..
    However, with Knockout being a favorite character of mine from TF: Prime, I couldn't help but think if we slap on some con symbols on him he'd make a pretty nice "classics" knockout. This reinvigorated my interest in the figure. The question is.. does the current drift head as cast (see pictures below) in red feel like a classics version of knock-out, or would something need to be done to his head to get a better knock out vibe from it, and if so who's head would fit??

    I also find it interesting to note that the prime model of knock out has some white striping underneath the headlight areas (on his chest) which lines up with the striping on the club toy.. The "white" woudl be better if it was more of a grey.. But it is close enough, and the other color that makes an appearance is yellow, which also lines up with Knock-out.. I find this intriguing.

    Will he have the yellow rims? I feel that's key. Knock-Out is the most egotistical Decepticon I've seen in a long time, it's what makes him so fun!

    Well I hope so since the picture shows him with yellow.. I LOVE knock out because of his Egotistical-ness..

    Frankly another "drift" leaves me bored... But a reason to call something knock out is win!

    I thought of Terradive.. But I think to do something like this you'd have to like carve out the bot mode head and put the top part on.. Perhaps That would work though if you trimmed off the rest of drifts head and stuck the terradive head part on top... Hrm.... I've got spares of both heads.. I must try this!

    Can we start an official wording that he's no longer Shattered Glass Drift and now Classics Knock Out? :) 

    Took me a while.. then I decided to check the TF wiki and found his altmode in 2 seconds.. Not sure why I didn't check that before the "image search"

    Still mostly fits!

    It's smart. He'll appeal in various degrees to:

    -SG Universe fans
    -TFP Knock Out fans
    -Deadpool fans
    -Classics Universe fans
    -general fans of the mold
    -general fans of the deco

    Well I was going to buy him anyway, and while Deadpool as a TF is amusing, I really DOOOO love Knockout...kind of a lot.

    If we don't get a Prime KnockOut toy on the ledgers before SG Drift becomes available (Frankly, I feel that the Prime aesthetic is "close enough" to draft a few toys to the main shelf), I may go with this idea :)

    I'd rather see a Knockout retool from Jazz than Drift actually.

    But i love the Driftpool idea. I'l be buying that no doubt. It helps that i love that mold.
