    After reading the Prime comic i couldn't help but think about Breakdown's appearance in the comic as oppose Personally i would have preferred him to keep his comic colours instead of his current, G1 inspired colours. Just because he doesn't really act or look much like his G1 counterpart and i like new characters with stock names to keep as far away from their other counterparts as possible. So which colour scheme do you prefer? And just for the heck of it, lets make this a poll.

    I don't really see much of a difference between the two color schemes.

    The comic's is a darker blue and has black parts all around, along with a silver/grey face like everyone else.

    You are correct, but IMO, I don't think the color differences are that much opposite of each other. I think it would be more drastic if he was colored completely different than just a few color changes to some small parts.

    It's mostly just the face for me. Makes him fit in more with everyone else in the show. Also, i think the darker colours just resonate with his personality better than the brighter 'good guy' colours in the show.

    I actually like his face being red. Reminds me of back in the day when a few guys had shit like that & helped to serve them apart from the others.

    I like his red face, and about his characterization, I couldn't care less about simillitudes with other characters of the same name

    I'm not really that fussed about it being either way. But I'll say I lean more toward the show's version.

    Following the crowd here; I do like his red face, helps set him apart. As for him being blue in the show, well, blue is one of those colors that will always look good on robitz.

    Don't look at it as being the minority vote, look at it as being individualistic! :thumbs2:

    Show. The red face goes well with the red detailing in some parts of his body and it looked specially cool when you could see the paint peeling out of it in Operation: Breakdown

    Me too. It's a nice change of pace from everyone having a silver one.
