At a toy exhibition event named ToySoul currently taking place in Hong Kong, new toy company Flame Toys have hopped on the scene with their announcement of a brand new officially licensed Transformers figure, Kuro Kara Kuri 01 Transformers Drift. Flame Toys’ “Kuro Kara Kuri” is a new brand by the design team “Chemical Attack“, whom worked on other toylines like Bandai’s Metal Build, as well as Sen-Ti-Nel’s Rio Bot and RE: EDIT Ironman Series.
This robot samurai is modeled after Drift’s first appearance in IDW comics, and it features official Autobot symbols on its shoulders and a light up gimmick in its chest. Accessories include dual short sword that can be sheathed, a great sword that can be stored on the figure’s back, and a cloak that appears to be made with a real fabric medium. The final figure will be made with a variety of plastic and also diecast material as well. The prototype has yet to be seen in poses other than the standing position as pictured in the display, but according to information available at the show, this appears to be a fully articulated non-transforming figure.
Unfortunately, no measurement, release date, or price has been announced yet. Flame Toys did state on their blog that more information will be forthcoming as the event progress. We will ensure information will be update as they become available, but you can check out images shared by Flame Toys on Twitter and Weibo user 52Toys after the break.
