I'm all for them doing the mold as a different character, but...well I've voiced my opinion on what I think of the Bulkhead version. :lol:

The mold itself isn't awful, frankly I'd buy that if it were real. It makes a MUCH better Breakdown than Bulkhead. #-o

AM-12 is the ONLY voyager figure in this line that doesn't utilize translucent plastic in his elbow joints.

So f**k no!

That's because AM and PRiD are two different lines sharing molds. Breakdown was the first Japanese original mold.

And Unicron is around Voyager scale, although I don't remember if he is an official Voyager. There's also the Breakdown repaint - Swerve. So, Breakdown isn't the only Voyager in the line like that.

I would not buy it, because it looks nothing like Breakdown and I'm collecting show characters.

No, I wouldn't buy it. I wouldn't even want a free one. That's not Prime Breakdown.

Weapon: Battle Blades
While I don't like the idea, I can actually see Hasbro doing something like that in Universe 5.0 in 2018 or whatever. Aaron Archer will be all like "OOOOOOOOOOOH!" and then everyone will start chanting "BREAK-DOWN, BREAK-DOWN" and the ghost of Chris Latta will ride in on a Unicorn and say, "We weren't proud of you" and publicly destroy the mold before it can be released. :BOOM:

Still doesn't change that they got it right.

Ugh, don't remind me of that abomination... besides, he doesn't even have proper hands and he transforms through parts leprosy.
There's also the Breakdown repaint - Swerve. So, Breakdown isn't the only Voyager in the line like that.

First of all I don't count repaints since they share the same mold anyway, thus it goes without saying. Secondly, it's Swerve... he's the lowest common denominator for red repaints, so his existence is hardly even worth noting. :roll:

Point is I'm avoiding the powerizers like the plague due to that elbow joint issue, and if they release breakdown over here using one of those molds, then quite clearly it's a lost cause to me.

I'd buy it for novelty's sake and because FE Bulkhead's such a good toy, but that's just not Breakdown no matter how you look at it.

All I see is Breakdown cosplaying as Bulkhead.

It's still technically a Voyager. It should count.

First of all I don't count repaints since they share the same mold anyway, thus it goes without saying. Secondly, it's Swerve... he's the lowest common denominator for red repaints, so his existence is hardly even worth noting. :roll:


You're ignoring every other Prime Voyager without translucent elbows and focusing in on Breakdown because he's the only one you like? Then your original point is invalid.

Beast Optimus Prime, Predaking, FE Prime, FE Bulkhead, PRiD Megatron (yeah, his elbows are not translucent). :-|

Okay, fine, so he's not the ONLY voyager in this line without translucent f**king elbows! Happy?! Godd*mn technicalities... :BANG_HEAD:

He's still the only one worth his weight in plastic besides the FEs though, and if he was given the body of one of the no-hoper powerizers just to ensure a presence overseas I'd still let it rot on the toy isle shelf with the rest of the bumblebees!

Breakdown's plastic is actually rather cheap for a Voyager, not to mention his height. Still a great figure, worth the import, but not up there with the FEs in terms of quality.

I've had it in hand it he's rather deplorably small. I'd seriously consider importing him if he actually felt bigger than a deluxe (which he does not). :\

That's one more reason for me NOT to import it. The first one being the absurd price. For me, a "regular" Transformers is not worth double or triple the price of one you can find in store. That's why I dont and wont own DotM deluxe Que, Soundwave, and Leadfoot. I only made an exception for DotM HA Soundwave because of my Soundwave display and the fact that he's freaking awesome. Plus, a small Laserbeak to go with HftD Legend Ravage!

To go back to Prime Breakdown, I admit it, the price is not really an issue. It's mainly because I dont care enough about the character. I thought of having the Cyberverse version but I passed because he's stupidly a Legion instead of a Commander.
