    It seems that their is alot of hate amongst the fans for drift. I love sword weilding transformers and I think he is the best one make by hastak so far. I love the fact taht all his swords have sheaths. He is a fun toy. Why the hate?

    Personally I love the guy too.

    But as for all the hate?

    Anything different is bad! Jealous it's not their personal creation. Ate a slot up for a different character they wanted to see. And more. Take your pick.

    I'm fairly certain that if there is anything to hate about Drift, it's his character. I've heard nothing but praise for his toy.

    I have seen no hate what so ever for this great toy. Any specific threads that feature this hate?

    People bitch to hell and back about the character, but I haven't seen anyone rage on the toy.

    Anyone sane, mind you.

    People don't hate the toy. People hate the character. For the most part everyone seems to like the toy quite a lot.

    As for why people hate the character, that's already been chewed over in several threads. I think this is the latest one. Essentially I think it boils down to the hackneyed, forced-badassery-to-the-point-of-silliness that he represents.

    Who hates the Drift toy? Every other post in the "cool stuff" thread is Drift. I kind of hate him now, but that's only because I've seen so many pictures of him in such a short period.

    I concur. The toy is awesome! But the character in general is... I guess new to us.

    I absolutely love Drift's Generations figure, and just can't see the hate for him.

    He was retroactively inserted into the G1 universe.

    This = Instant Fanboy Hate

    I love him, he's no less ridiculous than Bludgeon.

    I think he means he just hates the term "transfan". Can't say I blame him. If somebody called me a "transfan" to my face I'd have to resist the urge to punch them.
