Looking for a Botcon exclusive G2 Breakdown? Exercise caution. CHMS is at it again. Using the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold from Transformers Universe, CHMS has previewed 4 new KO's including the Transformers Club Exclusive Punch/Counter Punch, Botcon G2 Breakdown, a G1 Breakdown and Scamper. No word yet on how to distinguish these from the authentic figures, so when shopping, consider the source.

That was to reference the authentic figures. I'm aware, that Hasbro never made a G1 Breakdown, I'm sure most people are. Thanks for sharing this with us BTW!

Ugh.....i so love that G2 Breakdown. LOVE IT!
I'll buy a KO of that figure now that one is available.

EDIT: probably not actually.

It's pretty obvious Scamper is a KO as there is no Classics version for him. I would be interested in Scamper and G1 Breakdown myself. W/ the closing of KOToys I need to find out where to get these figures now. Would still like to get my hands on a KO Wildrider and if there is one, a KO Dragstrip.

IT"S NOT SCAMPER YOU DAFT PRICKS! IT"S DEEP COVER!

I know, I have 2 of them :p One in robot mode, and one in car mode, I think I seen a review on it.

Breakdowns just a custom, and the others seem to reference photos, as P/CP has the Fansproject cannon.

Can get Breakdown if you get White / Blue / Grey / Black - DIY kit and smash together. Would also have a G2 Sideswipe from that. >.>
Just no TFCC heads. -Never will be a G2 colored KO Breakdown I bet.

Hasbro already released a few official breakdown toys.
here's a link with pics of the Revenge of the fallen basic/scout sized Breakdown toy:

I thought this was a excellent updated homage as they nailed the proper size scale in relation to how the 1985 toy size was. it was also a decent updated homage as it was the right color,similar alt mode & it was very poseable.

Personally I love these things for the sheer fact others will be able to afford these at normal prices.

I have zero interest in these. as I'm satified with one copy of the mold. I don't need nor do i have the space nor spare cash to buy every single repaint/remold that comes out.

Anyways,IMHO,The classics sunstreaker mold was MEDIOCRE,It wasn't that spectacular to get every repaint/remold.

1- Skyshadow originally came from the 1989 Japanese Takara TF victory cartoon series & toy line. the toy/charcter was originally called Blackshadow in 1989 but hasbro couldn't get the rights to the name or felt using Black would sound offensive. 1989 blackshadow was a recolor/remold using the 1988 Mega pretender thunderwing toy mold.

1a-It's worth mentioning in walmarts price scanner the generations skyshadow toy scans up as the following abbreviation: BLK SHDW,Which is abreviated for black shadow. so at one point hasbro was going to use the original 1989 black shadow name but changed their minds at the last minute.

2- as most in this thread already noted,this isn't scamper. Scamper was a 100% black colored mold. this is meant to be another tranasformers character/toy as this toy is colored black & white.

So, you'd rather see, another Universe Sunstreaker repaint, instead of Black Shadow?

Is that what you said? I think that was what you said. :-|
