Kudos to Warcry- I'll be NPC-ing a character who's recently been showcased heavily in the IDW G1 comics. No, it's not Overlord. Or Rotorstorm. Or Pyro. Or even the Insecticon Swarm. Instead, I will be playing as...

DRIFT.

Fear me.

He's not a bad character, he just suffered from over-publicizing him for something he wasn't. Do him some justice for us on the board ;)

That wasn't quite the backlash I was expecting... where are ya, ziggy?

Ban the toy rather than the character... Have you seen the abominable white plastic it's made of?

I'm staring at the toy right now. I don't see anything wrong with the plastic.

And about the over-publicizing: that seems exaggerated to me. I'd get into the reasons the fans have made a bigger deal out of Drift than IDW or Hasbro, but that'd derail the thread.

So instead, I'll just say, can't wait to see how he fits in with the RPG's continuity.

It's getting long, and the Roll Call thread isn't a place for discussion, so I moved this here. I brought it on, anyhow...

the plastic on my Drift is okay. It's plain, but it works for the character. Actually it's the toy that made me want to RP him... ;)

No no no no... they over-publicize him. IDW states that Drift is something that is not 'readily available in prior transformers fiction', and that 'everyone will love it'. Drift will have the 'first-ever distinction of a comic character that gets made into a toy.

Ninjas, defectors and swordfighters have been in Transformers lore ever sine G1. And both Jhiaxus and Fallen have got toys years before IDW obtained the license to Transformers.

Drift wasn't so bad in AHM, but his dire spotlight, and how Shane keeps insisting that everyone loves Drift... well, it's annoying.

BTW, wyze, why did you disappear from the RPG all of a sudden back then? Curious... :)

YOU SUCK.

Though, to be fair, rather he's NPCd by a staff member than by some fanboi twat.

Hmm. Now that you mention it, someone should come up with a totally awesome premise to (re)introduce Impactor into the RPG.
DRIFT.

Fear me.Careful. I may just sic Blades on him ;)

Pyro is tempting, just to see how many ways I can find for him to try and sacrifice himself...
