    The hammer he comes with is a lot better imo.

    I love Dr. Wu. The Microns are horrible.

    In all fairness, removing Breakdown's head is very likely to break the toy, since the entirety of his neck is translucent plastic.

    That's not a particularly strong reason for anything. Just a reason not to try disassembling your toy, which is something that Hasbro doesn't particularly condone anyways.

    It's just fine for general consumers.

    The hammer is kinda ehh for me. Although , if they decide to make a shoulder mounted cannon for him like in the toon then I'll bite.

    The hammer and gauntlet look neat. :)  I wonder if the gauntlet can also fit in other figures?

    Yeah, it's BS that he isn't. Hasbro is going out of there way to get things like Jetwing Prime and the New Years Prime, not to mention the Bruticus and various other larger items, but Breakdown is too big? Like a store (HELLO, BBTS LATELY!!!!) wouldn't have gladly carried him in the states.

    I'm thinking that Breakdown will be in PRID with an Eye-Patch and will be called Silas

    Did it occur to you that Breakdown is only just out, and it was a good six months to a year before both Jetwing and New Year Optimus were solicited on Amazon?

    Hasbro *could* have just not bothered their asses to produce another run of FE toys, but they did.

    Not everyone at the company is out to retroactively destroy your childhood, but these things take time.

    If both Hasbro and TRU are happy with the way the second run of FE toys went... they may reconsider Breakdown.

    Sorry to say but the hammer looks like something off of Shapeways.

    Why not make a whole package though...? That hammer, gauntlet, shoulder cannon, and eye patch. I'm sure more will grab it right up. Or even skip the hammer and just have the rest.
