We're kicking off our galleries for the toys from the new Robots in Disguise show with a look at one of the guest Autobots - it's time for Drift
to take the spotlight! Like his incarnation in Transformers Age of Extinction, this version of Drift is very strongly influenced by the look of Japanese samurai, though unlike the movie version, you can see this Drift's face.
Robots in Disguise Drift is a Warrior class figure, transforming between robot and car mode in a handful of fairly simple steps. He's big and chunky, and definitely feels like a throwback to the simpler style of Transformers from the Transformers Armada / Cybertron days. The look is quite streamlined, giving the figure a very "animated" look to him.
Drift wields two swords, which he can stow in his waist armor in robot mode, and they fit beneath the car in vehicle mode. Drift has a decent range of articulation, and can strike some nice poses. All in all, he's a great representative of the Warrior size class. Check out his gallery and decide for yourself:Robots in Disguise Warrior DriftRead Replies (0)

:Comic Book Resources
have posted a new interview talking about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover with creators Mairghread Scott and John Barber.
A few of the key points of the interview include:
The Combiner Wars will be on two fronts - both an information war, a "war of influence", and a physical war. Starscream is at the heart of all of it, of course - with Optimus, Windblade and Prowl all being key players.
Superion has a few new moves - he's described as a cross between "an NBA star and Godzilla"
The seeds of Combiner Wars have been sown since Windblade first appeared in Dark Cybertron.
On an unrelated note, we'll also be seeing more Transformers of more body types - not only female characters but more diversity in general, more religions, creeds and classes.
Check out the full interview at Comic Book Resources, which includes some spoilers for the background of the crossover event.Read Replies (0)

We're going to let the videos do the talking, but needless to say this is a great up close look at two figures that will be highly sought after! Check them out below! Read Replies (0)

, so these new images are much closer to what can be expected on store shelves.

It's no secret by now, The Hub Network simply did not pan out as planned. When launched, many Transformers fans had high hopes for the Hasbro owned TV network. Unfortunately as time went on, a short amount of time, reality set in that The Hub was simply not making money fast enough. Adweek
ran a story about the rise and fall of Hasbro's TV attempt, specifically "what went wrong with The Hub, and what the toymaker hopes will go right" in the near future.
With Robots In Disguise premiering on Cartoon network on March 14
, this may be a good time to revisit the background of The Hub's downfall with interview pieces from Hasbro executives and other industry leaders, while also taking a look at Hasbro's plan for the near future.Read Replies (0)
