    Yes, the other cons are great and we discuss them in great length here, but....

    How about some love for the big lug? He's got a freaking hammer for a hand!

    And isn't he just a sweet little bot? I love him even more since the Operation Breakdown episode. How can you not love this guy?

    OMFG WILL YOU MARRY ME.

    Anyway, everything about him is absolute perfection. Even his luscious manrack.

    YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO ASK. :lolol 

    See I wasn't going to mention the manrack, but since you went there... Yes even that is great because it adds to his manliness. Of course.

    I loved Breakdown since before Operation Breakdown [actually one of the few to like him before then], his opening scene won me.

    Breakdown - "Miss me?"
    Bulkhead - "Like the rust on my undercarriage."
    Miko - "You guys know each other?"
    Bulkhead - "We have a history..."
    Breakdown - "And you have a pet, does it play catch? CATCH!"

    This guy also has some golden lines:

    Breakdown [Out of His Head] - "I'm gonna put you on ice." *pulls out hammer*.

    Breakdown [Operation Breakdown] - "Never run when you can fight."

    Breakdown [Operation Breakdown again] - "It's hammer time."

    Breakdown [Metal Attraction] - "Two 'Bots, one stone."

    He is the classic snarky havoc-wreaker that will kick everyone's tailpipe, probably the strongest character in the whole show, and pretty badass too.

    My only dislike about the character for now is the overly dramatic way of acting he acquired after he lost his eye, he was much happier and snarker before the loss of his eye, I WANT OLD BREAKDOWN BACK, DAMN'IT.

    OH, I forgot to mention. He is now even cooler because he has an eyepatch. How Badbot is that?

    He said that? How did I miss that :lol .

    He only has "eye" for you ILD!! ;)  ooopps, didn't see you there L-L!! He can see you too!!

    Actually, I've grown to like the big old pirate!! My favorite moment for Breakdown was when he threw the MECH car at the MECH helicopter and took'em out!! FANtastic!!

    I'll admit I was totally "DO NOT WANT." when I first saw it, but then I got used to it just like that and I think it just makes him more badass.

    Right as he was about to smash Bulkhead's head in the beginning of the ep. :D 

    "As much as I'll miss our little reunions...hammer time!"

    I want to see him doing the MC Hammer dance now! ... Or Knock Out doing it.

    OH OH I loved that part, I was expecting like the usual pilot jumps out of copter to safety that's usually in kids shows but HE FILET-ED THAT DUDE, THERE WAS NO ESCAPE THERE.

    It's like Firefly's Jayne Cobb was a huge robot with an eye patch. What's not to love about that?

    Breakdown. Is. Amazing.

    I just noticed while looking at Lob-Lob's avatar and signature that his eyes are yellow while every other 'Cons eyes are red. ( Does Soundwave count? Lol)

    Yeah, we were discussing that in the "eye" thread, a couple of ppl wondered if it was because he had an auto mode....or would he change sides??? Or has he changed sides b4?? Maybe why he and Bulky don't like each other...not just because they are currently on different sides.

    I think Knock Out should go back to the storage area and find him an eye tho...but maybe that's the problem -- nothing but RED eyes in stock!! :eek:

    Breakdown's hammer makes me think of Thor's mjolnir!

    I've wondered whether there is a reason for his yellow eyes. I'm thinking maybe he wasn't always a 'con.

    LOL or maybe Megatron didn't allow him to replace his optic since he screwed up by letting the humans capture him and all that nonsense. Or maybe he wanted to keep the eyepatch to serve as a reminder of his failure like he said.

    That's what I've been rolling with, but hey that's just my take on it. xD

    btw I'm never posting in any other thread again.

    Either he wasn't always a con - or they are going to have him switch sides (which might explain the lack of a Toy currently - can't have it a decepticon then him swap sides -- But didn't they do that with Dinobot?)
