I have to say, in comparison

I have to say, in comparison to the live action movies' usual approach, Drift's unusually human face looks really out of place.

Agreed, I think a lot of

Agreed, I think a lot of people were shocked. Although, word around the interwebs is that he's wearing a mask. I guess there's no way to know for sure without talking to the folks who came up with his design.

There was a lot of talk

There was a lot of talk around this installment having more "readable" character designs. Almost sounded like a mandate. If I was writing it I would probably have it be some sort of robot affectation that develops from human interactions. Like they start looking and acting like us from being around us, communicate etc. I think that would make sense.

I was initially disappointed

I was initially disappointed with the toys' design and simplified transformation. But after seeing the film, I now understand how and why the toys came to be what they are now. Bay's more humanoid and kibble-free aesthetic must've thrown the toy designers a huge curve ball at them. So hats off to the people at Hasbro for doing their best in reinterpreting them in toy form.

Drift and Evasion mode Prime are my favorite ones in the entire line due of the amount of molded detail, articulation and playability. I do wish that they develop a leader class or masterpiece leveled, triple changer version. I'd definitely pick that one up.
