What Takara did in the meantime is irrelevant.
As Cybertron Con's presentation was a joint one with representatives from both sides of the pond, I think it's safe to consider that Hasbro's reveal as well. The only weird thing is that at Botcon, from what I gather, they went back and pretended there was no Breakdown toy, rather than just saying "we can't give any new information right now."
Ehh, I attended Seibetron con, and it was shown under the Takara panel, where only Takara staff were there. Hasbro had their own panel during different time slots (Where PRID, FOC Starscream, AE Repaints was shown) but no mention of Breakdown. Hopefully he does get a US release... I'm not forking out $48 for a figure with stickers. Plus, the whole micron as a hammer seems pretty dumb... I don't mind a mechtech hammer, chances are, i can gut the hammer part.
