They confirmed months ago that they weren't bringing Breakdown or Unicron (or Ironhide, or Jet Vehicon ) stateside. Remember?
I am glad I got mine on pre-order. I am actually starting to get concerned with Hasbro releases, and the new materials they are using for (safety reasons). What has become of the U.S. where we are so obsessed with safety and regulations. I was really surprised when I saw that Voyager Dreadwing has floppy rubber tail wings, and knee caps and even his head is a just a thicker piece of rubber... ... I am glad that this is a Takara only release. If it was a Hasbro release too, we would have a suck ass toy with rubber head/horns, and shoulder horns, with a big ugly safety pamphlet inside saying try not to poke your eye out kid. ...
I know these toys are mainly for kids, but I am pretty sure Japan has kids too. They just give them a little more credit for not being complete dumb asses and stabbing themselves with a fricken toy....lol
Uh...Takara's releases are getting sloppy too.
Their Dreadwing? Same materials. Look at their promo pics, you can see his one tail fin bending ever so slightly.
Breakdown? Thin plastic and hollow limbs. (Doesn't make him less of a badass though...)
Unicron's probably hard plastic due to the design requirements, but I wouldn't be surprised if they end up giving us more and more of what Hasbro would. Rubbery junk and all.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe that we've seen Arms Micron Dreadwing yet.
Unfortunately, you're wrong. Here's proof: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/images/pr ... K11497.jpg (look at how the tailfin bends ever so slightly.)
