    So is Optimus a Marvel character then? Windblade was created by Hasbro and merely appeared in idw like just about every other tf character. Her most well known appearance is probably cyberverse since comics are such a niche industry.

    Wasn't she a result of a fan vote ? So she's an HB creation. Unlike let's say Straxxus and Circuit breaker, truely a Marvel creation.

    Optimus, as in the name Optimus Prime was credited to Dennis O'Neil. Back then a Marvel employee. So James Shooter (created the civil war treatment among living machines), Dennis O'Neil (Optimus name)and Bob Budiansky (everything including the kitchen sink) get credit as the the Marvel team who laid down the original TF foundation. The animation of the Original G1 incarnation was also handled by Marvel Productions.

    Flame Toys SG Drift has really great colors. Adding in that purple and tweaking the red to more of a maroon are just beautiful.

    Does this model include guns? I thought SG Drift’s whole thing was he used Blurr’s pistols in addition to the sword.

    I don't think so. Between that and the more maroon colors, the idea here seems to be the original SG Drift concept from the Club put through a "what can we actually officially release?" Hasbro filter to be an updated version of the character that's more just Drift from an alternate universe instead of being "lol, he's totally Transformers' Deadpool".

    No photos show any guns or gun holsters, so probably not.

    The 3K one does, but not the Furai model.

    Considering the complete lack of promotion for the upcoming release, it's highly unlikely he's coming this month as original projected, if that's what you're asking.

    I haven't seen any recent updates. Just checking if anyone else has seen anything.

    Kind of figured the Leo wouldn't make it out in April.

    There’s nothing wrong with that.

    And no- I’m not getting this figure.
    I was gonna get Nicee, but it no longer comes with an Arcee head.
