    With the WST Dinobots, their more like down scaled knockoffs then "fanmade" designs. And since they've been around for awhile, and Hasbro hasn't done anything to stop them, then I don't see Hasbro coming after groups who make stuff like this Drift kit.

    It's alright, I would like it more had his alt-mode be a real car than a cyb-car.

    This looks a lot better than the first pics they revealed.
    I guess they couldn't find a way to incorporate the three swords into his vehicle mode.

    I still think the fact that Drift has three swords is ridiculous.

    Not bad, but it's just too bad it's not an official product, ah well.

    I'd actually buy one, looks really good compared to some custom-manufactured figures.

    I see just this type of awesome thing and often think, "why couldn't this sort of thing be a Transformers Collector's Club exclusive?"

    Then...I wake up.:D

    So if I own you, will I take over ownership of page 2? ;) 

    This is one of five rapid prototypes upon which the mold for the final product will be based. The actual product will not be made of printed resin and not effected by the problems you mentioned ;) 

    Of course, none of us here will be able to buy it, unless we live in singapore...

    Nice, but not worth what it'll cost IMO.

    As far as third parties go, everytime SG Collect or iGear comes out with something new, I always hope to see a FansProject version of it. FansProject's stuff almost feels Hasbro made by comparison. This one looks pretty good though.

    Too bad this will be well out of my price range. Hopefully they will find an excuse to back off the limit of 300 and produce them like crazy.

    Or over 9000.

    I'm gonna bite the bullet on this one I think, this looks nice. Hopefully it won't turn out like Magnus head...

    Man that thing is turning out so nice. I'm kind of glad he's not an earth-type car or that he doesn't have wheels, that I can see anyway, because that would make me really want this and for whatever he's gonna go for on the after-market that would be quite a pretty penny
