Still waiting on that G1-inspired deco.

Mine is supposed to be here today. I'm anxiously awaiting it.

It's so weird to see TakaraTomy product in Hasbro shipping cases. I'm guessing that means Hasbro does all of the manufacturing/production and TakaraTomy just slaps their packaging on the product... (I realize it's cheaper for them to share the facility, it's just jarring when you finally picture it.)

That, and proof that Hasbro is responsible for it's piss poor design. I will say though, I really love the look of this in gestalt mode.

That's why I always say, "When it comes to designing figures, let the the Japanese handle it."

:lol: ...Fruiticus!

I have to say that I really do dig the G2 colors. They help the look of the overall figure despite all of Bruty's "issues." I preordered mine from Amazon and am (im)patiently waiting for him to be delivered. Knowing that BBTS has theirs in stock already is a little maddening, but I guess I can (and have to) wait.

Just curious though, why do you guys think BBTS would get theirs in so much earlier than Amazon? I mean, Amazon is a huge internet retailer that must have a better logistical system than BBTS (no offense)?

Got mine yesterday. Its about what I expected, but the plastic seems inferior, like you get on some of the japanese figures, light weight.

It looks like the arms are "mis-transformed." They are shorter. Blastoff's knees are bent shortening his forearms. I like it. I think Vortex loses his Bruticus elbow in this transformation. I'm going to go find mine and see what's up.

Huh. It does look surprisingly good in G2 colors.

Surprisingly the karate chop hand can hold mechtech weapons from DOTM delux figures. Personally i disliked his actual weapon, so i broke it apart and put it on his back to make him a bit thicker and threw a random weapon in his chop hand. I'll try to get a picture when I get home from work :CON:

And now it provides irrefutable proof that Hasbro did in fact design and produce Breakdown in Voyager scale. So their claims of retooling and all that jazz are pure and utter bull. If they keep lowering the quality, I could see TakaraTomy telling them to take a hike when it comes to design and factory work.

Asshattery abounds, Gentlemen. Asshattery, indeed.

Mmm, yes, so glad I preordered this guy instead of trying my luck with the SDCC or Retail versions.

Glad the camo spots don't have the weird fuzziness the SDCC pics had:

Hate to be a stick-in-the-mud, but it only proves Hasbro takes care of all shipping as well. Nothing more. Besides, not everything TakaraTomy has released is Hasbro design, like the Arms Microns. ;)

I was happily surprised to see the green matches G2 Asia Megatron. They should look great displayed together.

Not to mention, I want to see these figures in a display with the G2 Botcon set. Someone snap a pic and post. :grin:

Eh. The Arms Microns, okay. However, Breakdown has enough Hasbro touches that it can't be a TakaraTomy exclusive. I don't know if you own the figure, but you can tell that it's a Hasbro design.

Not doubting you there. An idea rejected for the US market due to pricing and size conerns, but picked up by the more flexible Tomy. Consider it like this: Hasbro made the rough draft, but Tomy polished it up for their own market. Gaia Unicron however I'm not too sure about, but all clues point to it being a TakaraTomy design.

Normally, I'd agree about the pricing and size concerns issue, but he's no taller than most Voyagers. Actually, he's a bit on the small side. He's very light and hollow, with that waffle like design on the back of his limbs. (FOC Jazz has this on his legs) He also has the translucent plastic all over, like a Hasbro release. Not to mention, Hasbro releases the PRID figures first, then they're retooled for TakaraTomy. So, at one point, at least, he existed as a Hasbro figure and they decided to pass.

One of the boards I'm a member of, a poster there mentioned he had heard Hasbro wouldn't release all the characters as toys due to the cost of the show. Seems to be coming true.

As for Gaia Unicron, yeah, definitely a TakaraTomy original. I just can't see a volcano with a face selling well here. lol

This doesn't look so bad. OK. I can get into this.

Yeah, having these figures, I have to agree the quality of the plastic, and the design is noticeably lower. Hollow, thin, less joints and articulation. BUT....All things considered, they're still fun figures and decent designs... even being a bit flawed. I'm glad I got them.

Still, I'm left with that mehhhhhh kinda feeling. Like buying the Power Core combiners and getting the limbs that don't transform. Fun, but not exactly what you wanted.

You know.... you get that feeling like you've just bought some generic cereal that's not QUITE as good as the real thing. *eats a bowl of Admiral Crunchdongles with milk*
