    Slammed together really quickly. Since I did a regular Drift from this mold some time back I felt I had to remake it using the idea the movie stole from me anyway ;)

    That just looks epic! :thumb  I'm surprised Hasbro didn't do a store exclusive of AOe Drift using this mold since he is a triple changer in the movie.

    Looks good! Although I will admit, your regular Drift was much better. Not trying to be mean, just my preference :)

    This figure in general looks very awesome! But whether it was intended or not, that wheel has a cool effect I can't fathom, but I like it to no end. Very well done custom!

    Great custom!

    For the Voyager figure, they should have. The car mode even has a vaguely Bugatti-esque look, with the low, flat shape and the narrow intake/grille in the nose. Plus the robot mode has those back panels that resemble the blades, AND the mold already comes wielding a sword. Such a missed opportunity. It's not perfect of course, but it's not like the Skyhammer mold really looks anything MORE like Drift.

    now I'm just wondering why re-release the Sky Hammer mold when Hasbro could have just done this?

    When I saw AOE, all i could think of with Drift was Cheet's Drift custom.

    Seriously there is no excuse for not doing a Classics AOE Drift from Springer now, as a exclusive repaint or mainline release or whatever!

    to be hones, it looks just PERFECT
    though a little remolding to make it KINDA look like a bugatti would have been mind blowing XD
    nah just kidding, still PERFECT as it is
