    aspects of this look more gundam than transformers. I do like drift though.

    anyways, no transformation means no interest.

    Looks fantastic. Wish it transformed. ;)  But yes, a nice Gundam-ish figure for sure.

    The CHUG Drift is hard to come by at a fair price lately, and in MTMTE they don\'t use altmodes that often so consider me sold. If this scales with CHUG and is under $100 I will bite.

    A pretty awesome looking, officially liscenced, non-transforming Drift? That's.... odd, but not unwelcome I guess.

    Looks cool. Though it could end up being like that sick stylized power master God Ginrai with the katana that never saw the light of day. Or at least, I can't find a single record of its existence.

    I usually don’t care for non-transforming bots, but this is Drift in all his anime glory...

    Sweet. I'd like transformation but I'll settle for an Action Master with that slick look as long as it scales with CHUG.

    Totally down with this. I'd gladly sacrifice transformation for Figuarts level articulation and detail. As noted elsewhere in this thread, these guys barely transform in the comics anyways and I hardly transform my figures as it is, so I'm willing to make the sacrifice. There are plenty of other Drifts that transform anyways.

    Oh man, Chemical Attack designed Transformers figures? Sign me the hell up for these! Guessing it will sell for closer to the 200 mark though, if it has the same quality and finish as the stuff they did for Sentinel.

    An overpriced, non-transforming figure?

    NOPE.

    Stylised too much like a Mobile Suit, I would much prefer the IDW accurate GCreation offering.

    This thing is gorgeous. I hope it isn't too expensive, I'd love to get one.

    *sees Chemical Attack*

    Oh. The price will probably be insane. We'll see.

    Transformers fans sure do love to complain.

    Are you guys this uneducated? Official third party transformers toys are not allowed to transform, at least not anymore. Its a rule.


    That God Ginrai was a garage kit statue, made by one guy, it did see the light of day in limited quantities during Comiket

    That looks awesome! I'm certainly interested, but final decision will depend on price. I've gotta save up for all of GCreation's IDW figures, lol
