    After my friend Jasonjupiter told me how awesome Breacher is, I got Seaspray and Breacher loose at NJCC. While helping gen1fan, I was admiring the design of the toys and how Breacher and seaspray seemed to be designed around one another.

    However it bothered me that if you push Seaspray along with Breacher loaded in the back, Breacher sometimes rolls back. There isnt anything that keeps him there.

    So I trimmed and sanded a little bit of the area near the hinge. Which allows the ramp to raise upwards and thereby preventing Breacher from rolling out unintentionally.

    Sometimes a mold is just one quick mod from being great - thanks for posting this fix!

    It is the area on top, right where the hinge is. If you try to push the ramp up, you will see that it binds up at the hinge. The Hinge is square on square. You need to round off the corners of the hinge on the ramp and the bed. Hope that makes sense.

    There need to be 2 more redecos of Breacher. One in colors to compliment Deep dive, and one colored Orange to pair with Sg Octopunch as an homage to his "inner robot"

    Totally! I've vowed to buy every repaint of him, too bad they didn't make any. :(

    What's so great about him? Other than the fact that he pairs well with Seaspray. I don't usually collect scouts so I passed him by.

    I think there was talk of a possible Brawn redeco of Beecher so maybe a green one is on the way.

    Very nice mod, always thought Breacher should be "tucked in safe".

    This x 1,000,000!

    Interesting kibble placement, amazing transformation, looks bad ass in practically any color scheme, and a head that more perfectly then any other transformer conveys him as an infantry troop(looks like something out of Killzone). What's not to love?

    You're probably thinking of the unreleased Bodyblock. Man I wish I had him... *sigh*

    you're both right. Bodyblock was originally going to be in the rts scout wave with Rumble and Downshift (Hubcap in Big Daddy colours) and Brawl was announced as a Hasbro asian market exclusive for later this year.

    dude all of the scouts from revenge of the fallen are amazing. Breacher being one of the best though i'll admit. with Skystalker, Brimstone, Ransack, Hubcap and Scattorshot being top tier in my book

    I actually predicted Sentinel Prime was in the third movie cause they called him Scattershot. Though then again, there are 2 Jolts. :p

    He's an homage to Big Daddy? I thought he was a black and yellow Decepticon.

    And yes, I know how to multiquote, but screw that crap! :D
