    where did you get it from? It should've come with batteries not installed. They come in some baggies. Yea the waist does sway a little side to side on my copy but not too much.

    I got it from TF Source. Thanks so much for your feedback! Looking again mine didn't have batteries at all. If the loose waist is expected I can live with it because it's not too big a deal but at this price if there was a tighter build I'd certainly opt for it. Mine also had some odd scratches on a leg piece so it appears it was used as a display or was inspected at least.

    I picked this up from Big Bad Toy Store - batteries were included.

    I have a problem tho - I cannot get the shoulder lights to work. I have the Batteries in place, installed, sealed - am I missing something? Are these supposed to have an on/off switch? The instructions do not show one.

    So I finally broke down the price barrier and got him at a anime convention, and boy for a Transformer he freaking fits in one. He feels great, looks amazing, and comes with the perfect amount of accessories and a stand needed to make him say "Look at me! I'm awesome!" Was not a Drift fan back with AHM, but MTMTE has me clamoring for an official figure where the main line was sadly discontinued.

    My only gripes, the manual does not come with the steps to swap the hands. I know they just plug in, but this goes into gripe #2, he feels tough. He is durable, but not "I'll give him to me 5-year-old cousin" durable. Sometimes a limb or limbs feels stiff to move in a pose I want and its a game of minesweeper before I apply more force and something snaps as it should not.

    I hope Flame Toys has good service...

    Now a new gripe has arisen to the lights. The manual calls for 2 LR41 batteries for the shoulders but the left panel screw is stuck and the right socket for the 1st battery jumps out when I fit it in.

    Just made the call to sell most of my collection and go all-in on flame toys. Drift’ll be my first. These guys seem perfect for someone with no time (to transform) and no space (for a big collection); socal life in a nutshell.

    Some might not agree, but I feel that’s a pretty logical move. My collection has grown out of control and I barely have time to finish a transformation before my children throws up a Bat signal. I might be doing the same thing by cutting out 50% of my collection.

    I have no idea, didn't see anything pop up when I did the search though, but that's happened in the past and then a thread gets bumped later, LOL

    I am honestly tempted to buy this instead of scavenging the internet to find the original drift for a decent price

    The purple LEDs are just the really tasty icing on the cake.

    I'm glad they are doing another version. I'll just get this one instead of paying a couple hundred more for the original. I hope they do a Deadlock version :)  I'm also glad they are doing re-paints, what would a Transformer be without re-paints. Does anybody know if any North American retailers are carrying the SG Repaint.
