I'll break the review down for you so you don't need to watch it:

"Breakdown's awesome. He's awesome. He's awesome and cool. You should buy him cos he's awesome. Breakdown's awesome so you should pick him up cos he's awesome."

He doesn't explain WHY he's so awesome but he makes it quite clear that he think it's awesome.

For the question "Should you import this?", the answer is yes. The current rumor is that Breakdown is going to be Japan exclusive. There's a possibility we might get the Cyrus Breakdown repaint, but don't hold your breath.

I think Peaugh thinks Breakdown's awesome because 1) his alt mode is show accurate and scales well with Bulkhead 2) his bot mode is show accurate and scales well with both FE and RID Bulheads 3) his transformation is clever and creates a robot without the huge backpack a lot of fans assumed he had 4) his weapon integrates very well with his bot mode and 5) he has a nice range of articulation despite being a bulky figure.

Honestly, if you can't understand why Peaugh thinks he's awesome, I don't know what else to tell you. The toy looks really fantastic. I'm just really upset that Hasbro has given no indication that we'll ever get this figure and I REALLY don't want to import it. Firstly, I hate applying stickers and secondly, I hate paying import prices. However, with Hasbro's track record, it'd probably be smart to just buy this guy now instead of waiting for possible news that he's a Japan exclusive and his price skyrockets. :BANG_HEAD:

This looks really solid. I do wish that he scaled a little better with FE Bulkhead but it looks alright. I love the rhino micron. That thing is boss!

I really hope they release that Rhino Micron in red as an AMW single. He will become my Neo-Classics Ramhorn if they do.

Cool toy. I'm not too worried that he won't make it over here. We're getting both Skyquake AND Dreadwing, so I'll be very surprised if Breakdown isn't announced at SDCC in a few weeks.

Considering Hasbro's track record lately, i'd be worried.

Also, how much do you want to bet Skyquake will be an Asia Exclusive?

Wow, this is the first review by Peaugh that I haven't observed him constantly fidgeting with the figure and knocking it over due to all the fidgeting and tweaking he does.

He must have cut down on the caffeine, maybe I'll have to start watching his reviews again (still hate that music though :P).

Breakdown is preordered on BBTS and he's staying there until he reaches my POL. I'm almost to the point where I'm going to buy Takara product only and just skip all of the products that Hasbro releases, the only exceptions being exclusives like the SDCC Bruticus set.

How can you tell? Sure he has lots of moving joints but he didn't show how much each part moves. In a review of Maketoys Wheel Loader the reviewer said the arms move up and down and out to the side. What he didn't say was that the arms only move a few mm in either direction. It's thanks to someone else's photos that I have seen Breakdown has good range of motion.

My complaint about the review is that he said "he's awesome" for about half the review but never once said "he's awesome because...". He may as well have not spoken for the amount of useful info in the monologue.

I'll wait. I have zero interest in the Arms Mincron and the mech tech warts on the figure.

There wasn't that much shown in terms or articulation, true.
Apart from which parts move, that is.


I did like the ending though, both music and image! :lol:
