McCarthy’s Drift

Yesterday’s storm was all anyone could talk about in the usually dry city of Perth today, it seems. It certainly was spectacular. Beyond the pics of hail damage to windows and cars was a great little article on local writer Shane McCarthy. Here’s the article about the All Hail Megatron writer and his new addition to the Transformers mythos – Drift, a Japanese racing car with a sword. Oh yeah. See pics of the toy and more at McCarthy’s blog.
