    Ooh, me. I care not one whit for the dinbots and have no interest in paying almost $30 for a set that includes them.

    He still had more paint on him than the deluxe ultimately had.

    Hell yeah, he’s way too big to scale with my carbots and too inaccurate in both modes.

    He had 3 forms in the movie. So, therefore, a line DEDICATED to accuracy should have a figure of him that has 3 modes. Repaints as a whole piss me off enough, but this is just a slap to the face of fans of the movie Drift.

    he didn't actually have the helicopter mode in TLK anyway. But even if they tried to work the third mode into the toy, it would mean either paying voyager price for a deluxe to allow for the extra engineering, parts and paint, of having a deluxe figure which sacrifices accuracy for the sake of a gimmick. It's the same with Shatter and Dropkick. I'd rather get separate figures with decent realistic alt modes than one toy that doesn't do any of the modes well.

    ah, maybe a deluxe chopper version from AOE?

    The truth is that Drift's helicopter mode is never going to accurately get a toy.

    That repaint of DOTM Skyhammer? That WAS helicopter mode Drift.

    From the IG page, it looks like Drift comes with all 3 mini dinos. They have a pic up with mini-grimlock too.

    I know people are kinda irked that this is a repaint, but I never got the TLK since it was just too damn red and inaccurate. I'll be glad to get this guy, looks 1000% better, plus those cute little dinos have captured my heart! :3

    OK, someone has to help me out, because I can't tell. Is this figure just a repaint of the deluxe from TLK? Or is it a slightly new mold? The transformation looks the same, but the torso looks new (other than the new paint job).

    The sword is obviously larger than the original (as it should be).

    EDIT:

    Just read the post before mine and saw it said repaint. That ends that. Regardless, I might still pick this one up. The dinobots will be a nice add, and the slightly more accurate paint job is easy on the eyes.

    Did Drift use twin swords in TLK? Because I'm into this new sword, but it'd be a bummer to get 1 if he had 2 in the film. Drift was pretty background in TLK so it's not too important to me either way.

    And I guess this might imply that the rumored Studio Series Cogman might also be a redeco of the TLK toy, with maybe a few alternate parts like Drift here.

    And I das thinking that they would use Dropkick's mold to make an AOE helicopter Drift...

    Is this the big reveal for Studio series? A beautiful paintjob, no doubt. But I want my DOTM Megs.

    according to the wiki he lost one of the swords in AOE, so he only had one in TLK.

    So Entertainment Earth has "first release rights"
    would it be reasonable to assume this will show up in regular retail as well?

    Now I’m not saying I’m going to buy this just to get those baby Dinobots, but I did buy both SS gold Bumblebee sets just to get the cassettes, so I wouldn’t rule it out. In fact if anything, it’s almost certainly going to happen.
