    Got to see this guy in person at anime expo. Stunning figure in person. Love all of the awesome engineering the joints. Chemical attack definitely worked on this piece. And man this thread is almost as funny as the old MP Star Saber thread..... and I'll leave it at that.

    $290??????? WOW. :crazy:  I knew this was going very expensive, but even that price makes me feel the sticker shock. If it ever goes on sale to more sane $180 maybe then I'll bite.

    That bonus helmet armor definitely screams Gundam to me. :D  Still, the included cloak is a nice touch for when Drift is first introduced to the Wreckers during their rescue mission against Turmoil's ship, in Spotlight: Drift.

    Dat price though. Yikes. It's not as bad as 3A's prices but still pretty high up there. Will have to think on this one.

    At least 3A figures are huge around 17-20 inches tall. This guy is coming in around 8 inches and while it's beautiful it's crazy pricey.

    Way, way overpriced.

    Maybe they are expecting very few sales.

    This is almost as overpriced as most recent Sentinel stuff like Mazinkaiser.

    Anyway, I am going the ThreeA route at the moment for non-Transformables. I am also eagerly waiting for Toy Alliance FoC line.

    Price was expected but the actual size wasn't. I had it in my head that this was in the 11" range, not 8".

    Looks absolutely gorgeous, but yeah, that price is even steeper than I was expecting, and I was fearing the worst. Damn it. :(

    Meh. Looks very very nice but ....


    I'll wait for MMC's version. It'll be able to transform, it'll fit into my collection better due to its size and it won't cost me nearly $300.00

    I believe this is true. If it's licensed, so official but not Hasbro, they don't typically allow transformation. Only Hasbro/TT make transforming Transformers.

    From what I understand, Jada, who just released the 1/24 scale licensed (from Hasbro and respective car manufacturers) TLK diecast model cars, discussed with Hasbro the design of a transforming diecast line, and Hasbro said no.

    Damn, that's badly overpriced. I love Drift, but not for almost 300 dollars for an 8 inch figure.

    I was on board for this, but there's no way I'm paying $300 for something that small. I'll wait for MMC's and GCreation's versions
