Notes

Drift-head

Drift's head design.

  • Not including Mixmaster's cannon mode, Drift is the first proper Triple Changer seen on the big screen.
  • His design in robot mode is heavily influenced by Samurai. Right down to the armor-plates and helmet. He even has a Japanese accent.
  • Despite his main alternate mode being that of the Bugatti, the only transformation seen on screen is robot to helicopter mode. Which has a more more Cybertronian looking design then anything else. This is probably because it costs a heck of a lot of money to buy the world's second fastest sports car for filming.
  • He has the classic Autobot Triple changer Modes, Helicopter and car, like Sandstorm and Springer before him.
  • So far no toy has been produced for Drift in the proper colors. For some reason the toys are all blue.
  • He is shown to not like Bumblebee, or at least the idea of him under command, stating he is just a child.
