Flame Toys’ series of Transformers Furai model kits is getting two new members. Classic seeker Skywarp and the Autobot Drift are joining up.
Furai models, if you’re not aware, are highly detailed and posable model kits. So yes, you have to build them, but what you get isn’t a static figure, but a pretty awesome looking action figure.
Forged from ABS and PS plastic, the kits are snap-together too. So there’s no mussing and fussing with glues and whatnot. Just snap them together and go. I used to build model like these quite a bit, and I can tell you that while they might take a little while to build, they are not difficult at all and make for some awesome finished products.
Flame Toys’ series is rolling ever forward too, with the aforementioned Autobot and Deception. Both models are based on the IDW comics versions of the characters, so they do look a little different than what you might be used to.
Obviously too, they don’t transform. If you are looking for that, there are plenty of standard action figures out there, though Drift is a little rarer to find than Skywarp. Both of these bad boys are scheduled to ship in December, and should be ready for pre-order now or very soon.
