    Exactly how rare is the Bronze Breakaway?

    Cause I saw one at Meijers and turned it down for Ironhide.

    Not super rare, but pick it up wen you see it.

    Speaking of which I need another one... I messed mine up :(

    I asked for it for my BDay, so I hope I made the right decision.

    It's in the latest stock at my target and that's it. Like....one or two though. I dunno if asking for it is a good idea simply because it can be confusing since they are similar to the originals. Same with the charcoal Sideways.

    In my area, both versions are equally as rare.

    It's shelfwarming here. Then again, the original was also shelfwarmign, though it disappeared quicker due to the early rush after the movie. I'm guessing the lighter colour would be harder to find here.

    I had not seen the dark brown Breakaway until wave 5 hit Target. That wave had dark Sideways and dark Breakaway.

    I have yet to see the dark Breakaway in my area.
    i don't get the fuss over it, other than personal preference.
    I am looking forward to the new repaint of him, just to have a decepticreep to stand next to him.

    I've seen a few here and there but I preferred the lighter colour so finding a dark one was never something I was bothered about.

    I found a Darker Sideways hiding in Kohls a couple days ago, still haven't seen a darker Breakaway.

    This.

    I love my first release Breakaway. He's interesting in design & color.

    They should really try to get a Powerglide repaint on him. I know the jet isn't akin to yesteryear's PG, but the robot mode, to me, is screaming for the redeco.

    I see more of them at one of my Targets. It doesn't matter to me because I just repaint them anyway.

    I picked up a Dark Breakaway and Dark Sideways the other day. It's the first time I've seen them in my area. Seems like some places have a ton of them, some don't have any.

    Anyways, I've got them up for sale if you're interested. Check the Junkion Exchange for it!
