    "For example, Breakaway, our Autobot sniper, was originally designed for the film. We knew right from the start when we saw him that we wanted him in the game; it was not until later that he was dropped from the film. By that point, we were really attached to him so he stayed."

    Huh, that's actually interesting. I wonder how many TF's were originaly in the script but cut? I know of Springer (who got both a robot hero AND a legends) and now Breakaway, but who else was there...

    Ok, so they threw out Springer, Breakaway, possibly Blazemaster.... Gee... basically all the flying bots which could have given this movie the much needed aerial dogfight scenes. :thumbdown

    They had to make room for the dog humping/Robonards.

    Those are very important.



    IT'S ONE OR THE OTHER, NOT BOTH!

    I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that he was going to be in the movie. It's more likely he was in a concept art portfolio that they got, and was more of a proof of concept type character than a real one.

    Damn, I like Breakaway a lot. He was the first of only a few figures I collected from the line. Never played the game though.

    Breakaway would've been nice for the screen. His little head in chest and flappy face cover thing makes me think of a jet version of G1 Wheelie. Then he can fly wheelie high. :) 
    Only if they also have giant dangly balls.

    This just in: TF3 Press Release
    Michael Bay Presents, a Michael Bay Production, a Michael Bay film: Transformers III
    In the ultimate battle of all time, critically acclaimed director Michael Bay brings the quest (featuring a story and dialogue scripted by master screenwriter Michael Bay) of a hero. Because of all the radiation set off by Devastator (not the tank one, jeez!) Skids and Mudflap, the greatest children's characters of all time, have fused into the mighty Skidflap. Scanning the alternate form of a jet Autobot (who cannot be named, there's no time to give him any lines) they become the ultimate warrior, Flyingskidflapadevysballsatron. Now, as the entire universe begins to massively exlpode in the biggest on screen explosion in the history of film, Flyingskidflapadevysballsatron must find the Decepticon Matrix of something to activate some machine to save it. Coming Summer 2032 (Visionary master Michael Bay requires 23 years of a break to build up the necessary physical and mental strength the job calls for).

    I'm sure Breakaway, as well as Springer and some of the other non-movie characters, were just concepts, and the filmmakers, I mean filmmaker, chose from them.

    Gotta love that Barricade's death was cut out of TF1 so he could be used in RotF only for him not to be used in RotF.
