    So at the time I didn't have enough time to shell out some cash for, Breakdown I really love his mold, and the way he is engineered, but it's looks like he's about to go out of stock, I've recently discover the Autobot version of him. Which is AM-17 Swerve I was curious would he be worth picking up, and some what good replacement since I missed out on, Breakdown the first time?

    Look in the junkion exchange for Breakdown. You might be able to find him for a good price.

    Look around on the Junkion exchange and other BST places to see if you can't get a good deal. Alternatively, you could just wait for the Silas version, since outside of the status of the micron weapon (I don't know if he retains Rhinohammer or not) it appears to be virtually the same with just a slightly altered right eye on the face, and maybe some special decos or something judging from how Breakdown's body looks from the previews.

    As for the Swerve retool, I thought that was canceled?

    Silas Breakdown is also black and grey instead of blue.

    I just bought AM Breakdown off TF Source a few days ago. Should be here tomorrow or Friday - don't know if they have any more though...

    Isn't Breakdown still going for online store retail prices on eBay?? (checks... yes.)

    Having said that, I have both BD and Swerve and they're awesome.

    I believe Silas Breakdown's micron is a praying mantis

    Swerve's is a pizza cutter

    I've had my Breakdown for almost two months now. Swerve is growing on me but I don't think I'll be buying it until it goes on some heavy clearence. I'd go for Breakdown since the mold seems better as that character. I'll wait for in-hand or in-package photos of Silas Breakdown before I order it.

    Are we sure about that? It could have just been a mockup or test shot. The computer render shot BBTS uses shows him blue.

    We saw a leaked photo of Silas Breakdown along with the prototype of Thundertron (or Riperarmu in Japan) at the Tokyo Toy Show this year. It didn't look like a prototype but it might've been a test-shot version.

    Leo Prime, lol.

    But yeah. I'm assuming the actual sample is the right colours, rather than the mock-up. Could be wrong, though.

    If it's the choice between an extra $20 or so, and accepting Swerve as a substitute, i'd pay the $20 and be done with it.

    Hmmm.... If he does end up like that, then that means Nemesis Prime will be black rather than a weathered, darker Optimus...

    Takara have repeatedly shown themselves to 'improve' promo images of what's meant to be the actual toy... and that exhibit photo wasn't meant to be taken.

    Odds are they're fibbing. Again.
