Official images of SS-36 Drift appear to have come from Entertainment Earth, who are the first to list a pre-order for it, for release in February... at a premium rate of US$27.
It must be an exclusive, as that price is waaaay above the US price point of Studio series Deluxes ($20), and is actually closer to the Voyager price point ($30).
The toy on display at NYCC.

They have tweeted about it as being an exclusive to them.

Some people are saying it's just a (good) recolour though of an existing Drift toy (plus the new mini-Dinobots)

I was just reading about it being listed on EE with a different product code to Amazon... suggesting that there will be two. If that is true, maybe the dinobots are exclusive to this one, "justifying" their excessive markup.

That's disappointing, I thought the SS was supposed to be new moulds. I would be getting this if it was a new mould, but looking at it, the bot mode does feel very familiar. I'm not dropping $70 on 3 little dinobots. as much as I love the look of them.

Not only is it a reuse of an existing mold, but frankly I was hoping for a Drift that finally turned from Bot to Car AND Helicopter.

I agree with UM, the baby dinos are cool but does not justify the pricetag

that would have been sweet!

on a nearly completely unrelated note.
I'm really disappointed that the RC helicopter Drift never got released. I was hanging out for that. I did get the Lockdown.
