The head isn't as derpy as I originally thought now that I realize the blue things are goggles and not his actual eyes, haha. I think I still like the Kup repaint better though.

I have to consider this piece, even though I am trying to be very picky when it comes to any G1 pieces that are not Headmasters related and non-G1 pieces. Anybody here have a convincing argument for me to get him as my possible 12th piece? :-?

And also, I am now compelled to make a tee that says "Forget Rumble and Frenzy! Swerve is Red, Breakdown is Blue" now. :P

That's one ugly figure. I know it sounds silly, but with that head and color scheme, it makes the mold suck. Breakdown (and possibly Silas) is the only one that really makes this mold shine.

I see the plastic's still as thin as ever. =\

I wonder if the Takara version of Dreadwing will be all rubbery or have plastic unlike Hasbro's. I'm hoping...

I wonder why. :-?

But, look on the bright side: The FoC Generations line is going to be getting an Autobot/Wreckers combiner. So that might have you forget this piece. ;)

I know. I'm really sick and tired of pointless repaints and retools. While the Wrecker combiner isn't as bad as this one, I still hate that too.

Leave Breakdown to his own mold. At least the Silas one makes sense.
