All the more reason to get God's greatest gift to humanity: a double cheeseburger and a mocha frappe. 8-}

Did Breakdown ever have two hammers in the show?

Yes. In "Operation: Breakdown."

I can't get a clear enough snap (because I can't find the damned episode in HD), but skip to 18:18 here and look at Breakdown:

Cute, but unnecessary IMO

I miss the days when happy meal toys transformed, no matter how horrid they looked.

why they just dont bring over the Arms micron stuff instead beats me. Seems like those would be perfect for Mcdonalds . I remember way back when Gobots was still around and Wendys had a set of them, fully transformable, plastic was good, ect ect. And they were already assembled

Seems like the arms microns would be excellent choice for McDs

if your not going to make transformers that transform at least give them some articulation, seriously how cheap can you be?

Is Bumblebee doing the Carlton dance from Fresh Prince of Bel Air? Megatron is pretty cool looking and if you look hard enough, you can see Starscream has a red crest.

Absolutely not. There's a reason model kits are not marketed to young children. There are risks of swallowing/chocking on tiny pieces, poking/cutting body parts with sharp/pointy edges, and losing pieces, among other things.

Not to mention the complexity of putting them together and applying the teeny-tiny stickers in ever so precise a manner could get frustration for those kids with short patience and/or shaky hands.

Happy meal toys are meant to be safe, simple, and Preschool child-friendly, which the Arms Microns (or most any model kits for that matter) are not.

Jim McCanney dropped by to let us know he caught a commercial for McDonald's latest wave of Transformers Prime Happy Meal toys. This set includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Bulkhead, Megatron, Starscream, and Breakdown, and is available now.

Breakdown is the only one worth getting. He's a little too tall, but close enough to Commander scale that I threw him in with my Cyberverse display.

I like Breakdown, but there is not enough blue. Still I might get him.

After the commercial, we now realized what has happened to the little ant:

He got squished by Optimus(?) when the toy did not expect the so called "mascots" to promote McD's, so he walked away and went to search for Ronald, Grimace, etc.

Got Bumblebee yesterday. It's really bad and boring. Even my son kind of don't want it (he wants Starscream).
