    Hey, just recieved my club exclusive "Breakaway" in the mail today in Terre Haute, IN. So just a reminder for club members (those that didn't get one at botcon) to watch your mailboxes over the next week or two.

    Also of note, mine has 2 tiny QC issues:
    -the spark crystal is installed crooked (at an angle)
    -the Drivers side wing fits loosely into the ball joint. (not sure if this was from shipping, or assembly, or molding, or what.

    Overall though, awesome figure, and imho, worth the wait.

    Only 2 more to go!

    Profile:

    Breakaway
    Allegiance: Caretaker
    Specialty: Metaphysics; healing; artifucial intelligence
    Weapons: Double Energon Plasma weapons; air to air missiles
    Unique quality: Can use raw Energon to heal even catastrophic wounds instantly

    Breakaway's memories are like the eastern horizon at dawn. When he looks back into his past, he sees only light and warmth and the haloed silhouettes of things that were. He remembers Cybertron only as a word that he associates with the warmth and peace he knows lie behind him. What he honestly knows in detail about his life can be encompassed by the pool of sacred Energon by which he slumbered for centuries.

    When he arrived on Earth it was still a barren world. Clouds of ammonia boiled out of volcanoes 20 miles high, and the surface - an endless ocean of magma - rolled and bucked with the chaotic energies of planetary formation. He had been sent across the galaxy, across dimensions, with the rarest and most precious form of energy, the source and structure of Transformers life. He alone was to guard it against all eventualities, never to return home until Primus once again called him.

    The call has now come, but his charge is not yet ended. Where Breakaway goes, so does his store of rarified Energon. He knows this is so, and he knows that this Energon is too important to leave unprotected. What he cannot remember is exactly why it was he that was chosen to be its guardian for so long.


    "Life is its own purpose. It's well being is mine."

    Nice to hear, hopefully we'll be getting them in Florida soon. :D 

    I'm really curious who the final two are going to be... I'm going to guess that they'll use Barricade for the center piece though sense we've already got two jets. I'd hope the next limb is the helicopter mold... than we'd have a nice little military unit going on. I just hope they don't use any of the construction vehicles.

    Do the first class members receive their figures before the third class members? I ask this every year, and never remember the answer :eek:

    What has been released so far? The tank and 2 jets? Next one will be a chopper I guess?

    I don't think there have been any direct clues to the next limb yet, but I'm thinking it's either going to be:

    -A chopper (more air units, would follow the pattern of using both Bruticus limbs to go with both Superion limbs)

    -or a construction limb (no recolours from Constructicon Maximus yet, and I cannot think of a reason for that set to be excluded from this).

    Very much hoping the central piece is based on Barricade. :D

    Can't wait to get him! I am hopping the next one is the Chopper and the body is Barricade. We don't need any construction vehicles since Classics Devastator came out recently.
