    Well, so far, the announced portion of this line's got a 2-2 hero/villain ratio. That's better than some first party lines cough most Takara lines cough cough COUGH.

    So cool, maybe if I see it on sale for a nifty price I'd pick one up.

    Thanks.

    So Star Sabre is a Decepticoncon? I'm only vaguely aware of him, but I thought he was an Autobot. Otherwise that's 3-1, or I'm just wildly confused (which is possible).

    Recently reviewed Drift from FlameToys. The one I purchased was from D4Toys and cam with the preorder exclusive Battle Mask. The link to the full article and gallery is on site in my sig.

    For me, this is an all-around fantastic piece. Non-transforming Transformers are a pretty polarizing topic but on a personal level I enjoy that they give the robot mode (which I primarily utilize and display on them) an opportunity to truly shine in terms of aesthetic and engineering feats like advanced articulation, lights, etc. etc. which this truly excels in. It's a mixture of strong plastics and diecast, and is full of fine detailing topped off by an absolutely fantastic paint job. Overall it's a nice piece and I look forward to really reading about others' thoughts on it.

    Star Saber is a villainous Autobot. That's why I wrote hero/villain, not 'Bot/'Con or Max'/Pred' as I would have in a more straightforward scenario.

    Nice. I like it! :D 

    Does he ever show up in MTMTE? I'm slowly working through those.

    I can't believe how little Tarn has been in it. He like walked through and waved about twice in the first volume and has otherwise been MIA. I feel like I'm reading the wrong series in that respect. I thought he would be a major character.

    Thank you so much. I really appreciate you taking the time to check it out and support in general! I do hope you get it because I'd love to read your opinions on it having so much experience with so many different product lines as you do.

    Hey no problem, dude. We are all in this hobby and are as passionate about robot toys in general. I'm thinking that I'm not going to be able to get Flame Toys Drift till next month the very soonest. But from what positive, glowing reviews from yourself and other members, this is the first proper 'Metal Build'/ Max Gokin, SOC-esque Transformer release not from Takaratomy which has truly reached the pinnacle of super-articulated, quality build action figure, and has a great premium finish. TBH, the "Obari Sword Pose" did it for me. You know a figure is badass when they have a giant sword and is able to pull-off that stylish Obari pose". :D
