    Even though I feel he's crap in the game I must go with yes. C'mon F-series jet with a new mold?! Can't pass that up.

    Breakaway is a fairly well put together mold. Some parts have a habit of coming off but so do all transformers these days. I am not a fan of his headmold and I don't seem to be alone in that, however alot of what makes a toy great is the emotional attatchment you have to a character. I have probably missed out on some good molds because I typically only go for screen characters. This guy is a win in the game and nothing is better than a jet.

    I liek the head mold. the idea of it being all hidden in the cockpit is funny. Plus, it looks similiar to BB in design.

    Plus, I love the tailfins and wings on his back in robot mode. Plus, his gun is on his arm like in the game.

    His head looks like a sad puppy. But I don't have a problem with it. I passed on him today for ROTF Ironhide and Ravage, I shouldn't have. I'm going to get him along with Thrust. I do not like the light blue, it should have been a silvery grey color like in the pic we got at ToyFair 09.

    Im gonna have to go with no. I have him, can't stand the colors, the Ronald McDonald feet, the head so far down. Did I mention the crappy colors. I would pass on him if there is anything else you are thinking of getting.

    I have to say, I have him and I don't really like him. I don't completely hate him, and I admit, I like him a lot better now that I did the head modification. If he had a paint job that was accurate to the game, I think I'd like him more. I didn't know about the darker version untill after I had bought the light version, but still...I think either version's colors are pretty fugly. Also, I hate his ape-like feet, and I don't like him as a character in the game. I think he is cheesy as hell. But I am in love with his alt mode. I don't hate the figure all the time, but I'm not totally happy I bought him either. He is not even being displayed or played with right now. Something about the way his hands are molded open really bug me. I think he has a descent robot mode, kind of unique, but I wish I had bought someone else.

    I agree. Wait for Thrust. He has a much better paint scheme. I wish I had known they were going to do a repaint (with a retooled head). I would certainly have waited and bought the Thrust version of him. I feel like a sucker buying this mold twice, because I don't even like the Breakaway version I have now, but I just might if the retool is good enough. I always think I need more Decepticons, and I will just sell the Breakaway version if need be (Or use it in a trade/sell off to BBTS).
