    Agent Drift

    I was mulling this last week Monday as I have this in planning ala WIP stages for ages (yeah, me lazy). Now Toy Fair 2010 announces official Drift toy. *Sigh~*

    He is now half complete, waiting for the paint to cure and I will touch up the vehicle mode.

    EDIT: 18/2/2010 - Alt mode pics added. Nothing fancy

    You could just make it an original character.

    I have an idea:

    Turn this custom into the Decepticon Deadlock (who Drift was before he became an Autobot).

    This looks very cool... you could make him into Tracks. The canopy on the back kind of works that way. In fact, Drift's design does recall Tracks to some degree as it is.

    This is also a cool idea! :thumbs2:

    I know this is far from finished, but the katakana on the inside of the hood looks off (great idea though). It should be ドリフト unless I'm missing something.

    Kind of stuck out to me, but great going otherwise.

    If it makes you feel any better (or worse, I guess), I have a Sideswipe sitting transformed that way on my shelf with my would-be Stunticons right now, destined to become Dead End. :lol 

    I guess it's the obvious solution for those of us who like the flat kibble-less chest look (more like the G1 style), but don't want a parts-forming shield (which was Frenzy_Rumble's solution when he did his first Stunticon set).

    Funny, I'm using the mold for Breakdown (... Brakedown?) the exact same way. I'm just waiting on getting my butt to stick a ball and socket joint in there to turn that sucker around.

    Yeah, it's a kibble-cape. But going by the Stunticons' personalities, I don't see them having or using shields.

    Updated! To answer Orio's question, the head is from Cybertron Hotshot.

    @Kusanagi - you're right, oh well, too late to change the error as I have already clear coated it.

    If it makes you guys feel any better, I had an idea similar to that, but maybe add a tiny hinge on the underside to allow it to flip down for some early Stunticon planning. :lol 

    I tried the method seen here and I just wasn't a fan of the tall backpack look for any of the Stunticons. And before anyone asks, they are WAAAAAY off, so don't look for any WIPs on 'em. haha

    As for the custom at hand, beautiful work, my friend! I had a passing idea that this might work for a Drift, but I didn't give it much thought beyond that. I'm glad you managed to crank out a very nice one from this! I really dig everything about this and can't wait to see more on it. Keep up the great work, bro! (that head looks great on this mold)

    Looks great, I like the look of excellion's head better than the "official" one
