    He's a bit 'eh...' to me. I love the Bugatti mode but his bot mode is lacking, too light and I am hating the ratchet joints being used for the elbows.

    Agreed. I guess he's an acquired taste...

    Yeah, I'd even like to at least have a toy of him that only transforms into the actual copter mode... If they could get it to transform into both modes well, even better, of course...

    His helicopter mode wouldn't be that hard, it's not a real helicopter or anything. (it's even covered in bugatti parts)

    I just hope we get a figure that better matches his face. His head design was badass, but the toy has a weird puffy-cheeked pouting lips thing going on.

    Maybe a 3rd party could create a kit that would allow this deluxe to transform into the helicopter mode. I've been hoping one would make similar kits to convert RotF deluxe Roadbuster and HA Leadfoot to their "brute force" modes...

    Thank you split lip...you took the words right out of my mouth.

    I thought of getting Drift until I saw the film. I thought of holding out for the 5 figure set, until I saw the film.

    Seriously there is no way I am getting either of the Drifts that are out now. Such a great character, the toy needs to be a triple changer figure. Just like it was said above the Helicopter mode was a mish-mash of car parts and cybertronion futurist chopper. It looked great...when you could get a good look at it.

    Since Drift lives, I think we need to see a new toy...fuck make it a voyager car that turns into the weird copter and into Drift...what ever. But yeah I think as far as figure from the film, I will be getting Deluxe BB, Lockdown, and maybe evasion Prime.

    I guess the face is passable.

    Boy does his nice lighter blue paint scratch off easy...

    Just like his face.

    I like Drift. Weapons storage is good, transformation is fun and the molding is well done. I love how he can draw his swords.

    Face is a bit on the creepy side thouhg.

    I saw somewhere a customizer, i think it was cheetimus, did a voyage AoE drift using Generations Springer. Man, i'd be all over that.

    Am i the only one who sees a good DLX bludgeon in this mold? Yeah he'd be a car, but still.

    I think his bot mode and alt mode is pretty cool! and after seeing him in the movie he's very very cool! Love the helicopter mode he transforms into.

    Got him today and love him. Looks great in both modes, has nice weapon storage, and is easy to transform.

    Edit: tried doing a helicopter mode. Bleh.

    It would be neat if a 3rd party company made a little set to transform him into a copter mode, using the swords as propellers kind of like that...

    1) Funniest thing I've seen all day, thank you.

    2) Cannot unsee Beast Wars Drift as a blue cicada or bluebottle fly or something.

    What causes his face paint to scratch off?

    Any way of preventing it?

    Just got this the other day, it's a very neat little dude. I thought his lack of wrist rotation would be annoying but it's surprising how posable he is with what he does have. Very fun to transform and fiddle with overall, he's the best in wave 2.

    Transforming it wrong.

    Turn his head around before you fold it in.

    Finally found one, really like the brake rotor detailing in the wheels. Fun fig. Didn't put the back tab in first on the engine cover when going to car mode caused a couple small stress marks.

    well, i spoke too soon. damn thing is impossible to get into car mode. the hood refuses to move down on the grill and the back just flops around in half-car mode. the entire back kibble section basically doesn't align with the rest of the car. any help?
