    In honor of Fast 9 coming out in America yesterday and partially because I recently found out that Justin Lin might be a Transformers fan I made a custom Tokyo Drift themed Drift using Blurr and the leftover Drift head/spoiler from my AoT custom.
    It's technically a WIP but I also don't wanna touch this again. Taking apart and repainting two Drift molds in a row does a number on you lol.

    Looks great :thumb 
    But why didn't you just use Blurr for AoT and Drift for Tokyo Drift?
    What would you add/change?

    The scabbard on Drift/holsters for Blurr. This originally started as me just straight repainting a spare Drift I had into an AoT custom before realising that Blurr's head worked better and me binging through the FF series for the first time in the middle of working on the first one. Just swapping out the doors would've been easier but I didn't want to get the ratio of green/blue right again and I disassembled it anyway so the only really added step was replacing the head/

    As for changes really just paint touch ups.

    That's so obvious and I didn't realize it until you said it :banghead: :lol 
    Maybe the designer of the R.i.D. 2015 Drift had the same idea.

    Tbh... With Tyrese Gibson and John Cena already having been in both franchises... And the storyline for both being utterly bonkers... They could just make a crossover and act like it's one continuity... No one would nat an eye. Lol.

    Good work on Tokyo Drift. It's an older figure, but I still think it's great. Only bit missing articulation wise is what.. ankle tilt?

    ngl I always feel like I'm gonna break something when I transform the foot on him specifically. The one on my AoT custom had a crack near the pin before I even started taking it apart.
