    Repaint of RID Alpine strike Drift (thank you finall for a Drift with white body) with a new "Penitent swordsman" head and paint job to resemble his season 3 appearance. The Great Sword is the fine creation of @javaco.

    Yeah, I forgot to push the pin all the way in, and for most of the photoshoot, it was done before the badge was even put on :(

    Nice work! How do you attach the new head, and does it still transform?

    The new head come with a new neck joint which requires the chest to be opened - I have some details on the product page. Still transforms.

    Ah I see you went for the Blood Teary Eyes drift look :thumb

    Aw geez, this sent me running back to Wal-Mart for that RiD Alpine Drift I didn't care about. Of course it was gone.

    Oh man, that is gorgeous. If I had any customising abilities of my own, I'd definitely give this a go. We need a mainline release of Drift like this
