    Breakdown has a new head and a more detailed background. The prior head can be seen in the first photograph, and the new one in the last photograph.

    Cheers,

    Breakdown has long been an inmate of Iacon’s Mental Health Hospital, a maximum-security facility for dangerously unstable Cybertronians. Everywhere, he feels that eyes and cameras are following him. He feels in his metal endostructure that there is some guiding force behind it, some mysterious observer with unknown but malignant intentions. Breakdown checked himself into the asylum, seeking freedom from that all-seeing observer. Surely, he would be safe within these solid walls. Using a device supplied by Swindle, Breakdown scans his cell for monitoring devices daily, sometimes hourly. It always comes up negative, but he still feels those optics upon him. How can it be?

    I think you should do something about the neck, as it looks a little too high. Aside from that, this is really super :thumb

    Can't really see his head that well. Need a better pic.

    I agree that the neck is long. The neck base has actually been shortened a bit from the original Jazz. I had decided it would probably be OK, as Animated designs are cartoonishly distorted. I might give it another go.

    Cheers all.

    I don't think the proportions are bad - it's the aesthetic of that head. Perhaps if you used a suitable head from another Animated figure it'd work?

    Great work on a fairly simple custom. I love Jazz and Breakdown was the only Stunticon I ever owned so this one is pretty awesome to me. TFA needs more cons and the back story is cool.

    Simple, but effective. I had the same idea (still plan on doing it regardless).

    Cool! I already miss TFA and enjoy seeing characters added to the animated lineup even if I'll never see it in person. Keep it up!

    Hello:

    Thanks for the feedback. The square head and long neck were a little unpopular, probably because the head wasn't 'animated' enough and because the neck was too long. I've tried to fix both these issues, by shortening the neck and using a Jetstorm head instead. I've posted the new version in the original post, and the previous version is still there for comparison.

    Cheers,
    Dischord
