    Unfortunately, I wouldn't hold my breath on a fairly obscure character, as awesome as he is.

    Pretty sure a toy is in the making. Hasbro or IDW said so somewhere

    Drift is an all new character from AHM, it was said way back at Botcon that Hasbro was so impressed by him he'd be out in the Universe line as a figure.

    A toy was confirmed when the character was unveiled.

    Edit: Knightdramon just pipped me to it.

    Drift is a new character from All Hail Megatron. His alt mode is a Nissan Silvia S15. He looks to be like a samurari warrior. I want a Drift toy but if he isn't in wave 6, he will be in after the hiatus.

    If you got the last issue of 'all hail megatron',
    look on the inside front or back cover.
    There are pictures of all 3 covers including
    the retailer incentive cover which is a drawing of drift.

    Drift may not get a toy until universe resumes after movie2 toys.

    Jazz really is super overdue. I hope if and when he's released he'll be just as appealing as Prowl and Sunstreaker. I envision him as sort of a hybrid of those two, i.e. chest position somewhere in the middle, his G1 spoiler-heel-spurs and discrete door-wings. I wouldn't mind a Wheeljack, or maybe even a Warpath, but I don't think I could care about anyone else. A decent Devastator would be boss but I don't see that happening.

    I was hoping for something a little bigger. I certainly hope Legends Jazz isn't the only one we'll see.

    Who confirmed a wave 6??? Not doubting it, just excited about the news!!! Its only a dream, but I wish, I wish, I wish... for Jazz to be in that last wave before the (I HOPE its only a...) hiatus. Maybe we'll get the Voyager Inferno repainted as Grapple during wave 6.

    And what exactly is in wave 5??? I know Ratchet, Dinobot, and Smokescreen is in it for sure, is there any other??

    EDIT: Oh, I just remembered Hot Shot is also wave5.

    Drift was confirmed for a toy at SDCC, but there was no mention of what line he'll be in. He could appear at the tail end of Universe, as one of the exclusives later on during the RotF line, or maybe even in the RotF toy line itself. It's hard to say as all we actually know is that he'll at some point get a toy. Personally, I wouldn't mind a RID Side Burn repaint/retool of him eventually. Then repaint/retool Sunstreaker as Prowl, and Ironhide as X-brawn.
