    Wow. That's roughly 10x better than I was expecting. No melty parts to be seen.

    Aaaaaand. How to go about getting this exactly? I mail one arm, a leg and a testicle to where?

    Too bad it doesn't transform into a realistic car.

    Looks really cool...Just not $100 cool.

    I'd probably buy that for $30/40 tops. But somehow I doubt these third party figures will be priced that low, since it's usually the accessory kits alone that go for that much.

    As cool as a lot of these are, I just don't see myself buying any of them. I can justify paying $100 for something like City commander, but a deluxe sized figure just isn't worth $100 to me, no matter how nice it is.

    Ok that's cool they are going to do some urethane casting of those parts. Do it all the time here at work...not figures but take the 3D printer parts and make molds from them. Now I would buy them. Thanks for the info:)

    That's pretty cool. Too bad about the 300 unit limit though.

    That's because it's the Cybertronian alt mode.

    I presume they are doing the Cybertronian version on the off chance Hasbro decides to do Drift at a later date.

    I like it. Ever since Titanium Prowl I've been on the lookout for good Cybertronian mode vehicles. There aren't as many as I thought. Seems like when it's Cybertronian, they simply don't try as hard. Most of them are just a bit random.

    The cancelling/hiatus of Universe is to blame, IMHO.

    We don't know 100% certain that Drift will never be made. Maybe he will be made if AHM's storyline continues (not that I'd like the character, did we really need a silent samurai Wolverine-like Mary Sue Autobot?) - but I can bet he will be made with an earth mode IF he gets made, so this custom won't be redundant.

    I like how he looks but his price is way to high.
