And then you have the Arms Micron redeco of the Minicon Dirtboss (who was called Drift in Japan), as a chest piece.

I considered SG Drift as another limb, but I was hoping for different molds for each limb...not really sure why come to think about it since Takara's plan for their combiners involves a lot of repaints/minimal remolds. The chest-piece idea is brilliant though.
Either way, Hasbro is totally missing an opportunity with their choices for their Fan-built combiner. C'mon Hasbro...where's Driftotron?

C'mon Hasbro, just one more...
Hehehe... I immediately thought of this posting after seeing the Kreo display at the US Toyfair having a Bumblebee combiner and Optimus combiner that were just 5 Kreons of each character.
I think none of us would have been remotely serious about having an officially released combiner made up of just the one character... but then Hasbro comes out and does it.

It kinda ruins the whole pun of a Driftotron being a combiner of Drifts to maximise his awesomeness...

Lucky I was more switched on and managed to get 3 out of 6 of the orange constructions a couple of years later.

My parents bought me Scattershot, who came with all the combiner bits, but they never bought me another Technobot

A 5.2 earthquake struck near Bundaberg this morning at around 2am... that's stronger than the one I felt in Japan a year ago, and the shaking of that one scared the heck out of me.
I wonder if any of our members in the area felt it?

Happy New Year... for those who go by the Lunar Calendar, or were waiting for the CNY before they could play with their YOTG Transformers.

Yeah I had that too. Try having 4 out of Six Constructicons in 1985. Only got Scavenger and Mixmaster to finish Devastator in 1998
