    Aaron Archer said that the breakdown can't be made in United States because the price would be irregular to correspond to the size classes of Hasbro.

    What if the Breakdown was released as the battle pack, with a deluxe or the cyber verse figure to pad up the cost to a price point?

    I do not want this to happen, but is it a good idea. I do not want breakdown just tell me if it's a good idea okay.

    No... not without a major retool. I mean, what's the fandom going to do when it ends up being possible recalled because of very small parts due to fragile areas? It's not like they can sell it as a collectors toy with a huge 16+ sticker in front of the character.

    I was under the impression they legally cannot sell Breakdown, given it was [paraphrasing] "in a no-man's-land as it didn't live up to their standards and cost too much too correct" and how so many people here with Breakdown in hand have pointed out that it can break far too easily.

    If they haven't sold THIS mold of Breakdown yet, then I think it's pretty clear nothing will change that (no retools, no giftpacks, nothing). A whole new mold is likely the only option for the character.

    I think it'll be cheaper to make a new Breakdown.

    I don't why hasbro wasn't working with takara on this figure so it could be released in both markets like almost every other figure in the past ten years.

    They won't do it.

    There is three choices, get the AM version, get the Hasbro CV version, or have false hope of Hasbro bringing the AM Breakdown to the states.

    I really don't get why he would be so cost inefficient. He's about the same size as the other RID Voyagers, has translucent plastic on his forearms, and they could easily ditch the rhino and give him a light up weapon. Unicron I can understand, and maybe even Jet Vehicon, but not Breakdown.

    Why can't the US release the Jet Vehicon again? There afraid of the kids using the toy as Chinese Stars?

    I was think the toy was tooling by the Takara, and moulds have the holes in them. As well it is a flying car.

    I'm sure hasbro will release the breakdown mold before the 18 months to 3 years TF Prime toy line is done.

    My guess is hasbro gives USA buyers the silas Breakdown recolor. most likely as a store exclusive.
