Goodbye, old friend.

RIP Breakdown. :-(

I bet this is the first few minutes of the episode, right before the opening theme song.

I hope we this type of thing in Transformers 4. It would at least make the movies feel a little less "Samey".

Dang, this show is twisted for being a kid's show.



I love it. :D



I hope they stretch this out and don't make it a one note episode. I think this is a story line that could carry an arc for a few episodes, at least. Or make him a recurring character. (Much like he was, prior.)

But, now this should put people's questioning minds to rest... Breakdown is dead, dead, dead. The writers or producers (can't remember which) said that once someone's dead, they're dead. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Ballsy.

Well... If this'll cheer you up, I have heard that the Takara Tomy Combaticons (FOC Generations version) will be more series accurate.

Or would you prefer a scale model of Airachnid being killed by a resurrected Breakdown? :-?

Looks like Miko can now have her wish of having Silas get pummeled and crushed inside the body, from what she said back in "Nemesis Prime".

Hmmmm I don't think either fit. It's more like Spike and Daniels exo-suits or a human protector shell. Silas definitely doesn't turn Into a head or have his mind taken out of his body. Oh oh or like in g1 season 3 when cobra commander transplants the captured Autobots minds and the criminals drive their mindless bodies.

Edit: though the criminals weren't surgically attached, so I guess it isn't like that either.

Wonder what he is after this time? What knowledge do humans posses that interests soundwave enough to go get it? Surely its not another space bridge guidance system attempt. Maybe humans have found relics and have them stored in their own version of "sector 7".

He's not in any slumber. He's dead. And he's not coming back. That would go against their motto: "Once we kill a character, we kill a character. They won't come back."

Do you want to teach kids that you can come back to life if someone takes over your body? :lol:

I think there is a possibility.Breakdown's body is intact,his head is not damages(Except the eye of course) he just needs some energon to power him up and go...but of course if it was that simple dark energon wouldn't make sense would it?
I just miss Breakdown :-(

You and me both, but it doesn't make sense for him to come back. He's dead. You would need to reignite his spark, and of course you'd need Breakdown's memory core...and processor. And get new writers to change their philosophy.

Not to mention Breakdown was in pieces before MECH got a hold of him. Who knows what they did with the essentials to make room for Silas?

Hey, if they can counter-hack Raf with the press of a button on the console of the helicopter AND know next to nothing about Transformers yet know how to disable their pain receptors AND have a light that turns off instantly when you snap your fingers AND construct a near-perfect replica of Optimus Prime that you can operate with a thruster, two pedals and a joystick?

I'm not holding my breath.

All that information they acquired over time with careful study.

I don't know why people hope and hope for characters to come back after they die. The writers said themselves, a thousand times, that they aren't going to bring back a character after their dead. If they're dead, tough luck; keep crying.

Sure, I'm sad Breakdown's dead. Sure I'd give anything for Breakdown to come back, but it's not going to happen. It's the unfortunate truth.

Maybe. They used Starscream's T-cog for Nemesis Prime, so they might have left Breakdown's alone.

This isn't the first time a character voiced by Clancy Brown has fused with a living machine (for a given definition of "living" in this case).

I would imagine Megatron sent him to loot the data on how the humans (MECH) accomplished the feat of fusion between a Terran and a Cybertronian. What I wonder is how the mad doctor will react to all this. Will Knockout be enraged by what happened to his partner/friend or will he be more curious about the science behind what has transpired...?

as for what soundwave is looking for, well megatron has a hammer that can make any weapon, but only a prime can use it. silas made him self a neato copy of a certain prime that is missing that annoying concept of free will, and the millitary has it tucked away somewhere. the wise tyrant would want to get his hands on that methinks.

I'd like to see more deaths in this show, starting with Miko. She is annoying as can be and serves no purpose to the show. But, I would like to see more characters added, even if it means replacing old ones. I'm tired of watching Megatron's army be comprised of identical drones. I want to see Prime versions of old characters not a hundred vehicons or insecticons.

This is true. In one of the trailers for this episode you see lasers being fired at autobots from directly above them.

It was first mentioned in "Grill" when we found out Silas' real name which was Leland Bishop and that he use to be a Colonel of the US special tactics branch. You see back when Silas was in the military he was the creator of Project Damocles which was meant to create a network of satellites in orbit around Earth, which would be able to target any location on the planet with lasers. The project was mothballed and the reason Silas was discharged.

So I am not understanding the marketing strategy here,

how are you expecting to sell toys when you kill off the character?

okay- maybe in the takara-verse, kids want all these one shot characters, but why should I want a skyquake, nemesis prime, or Sylas after these episodes. maybe if I want to reenact episodes---Damn, still missing 98 vehicons.........

is this the show up and blow up Pheonomonon?

You know, this is why I think Simon Furman used to 'create' bots and cons for the british comic-- so you could kill them off without endangering the toy marketing? Sorry Simon, no offence meant, but look at Fang(target 2006), Chameleon and Seizer (city of fear?).

But if he (and Bob Budiansky, for that matter) hadn't, we wouldn't have later gotten the awesome that is Squadron X. ;)

Haha I was just messing with him (No offense Hellstriker). But I had to google it to find out what it was.

If you havn't watched the episode yet don't read the spoiler text below!

Was I the only one that was disappointed the thing between Megs and Silas didn't work out? I thought it was gonna be cool. But they will dissect him unless he escapes. If he doesn't escape maybe this is how the beast hunters thing comes about. Similar to the thing Megs did in Beast Wars by controlling the velociraptors with transformers technology and upgrading them.

No, you really didn't. It was explained in the episode (and in Grill).

Or you could have asked one of us (like that other fellow did). We would've told you. :-)

Not really. I was hoping to have Cylas as a new Decepticon. Oh well. We're back to Megatron, Knock Out, Soundwave, Dreadwing, and company. :roll:
