    Here are photos of the Takara Version of Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Class Breakaway.

    On eBay here

    Lots of comparisons with the Hasbro Version.

    Honestly....is there really a need for them to be changing the shades of colors? Why are they doing this?

    I think that actually makes him look worse. It's not the tan that needed changing, it's the green and "silver". I'll wait for the inevitable repaint.

    Edit: Also, if his head were at the back/top of the cockpit instead of the front/bottom of it, he'd look a lot cooler.

    Every single time I see this figure I hope beyond hope that no-one has managed to transform it correctly yet, and that someday we will see how this guy is supposed to look. It's just a silly looking mess of a robot.

    That does make it look a little better, but not much. I'll be waiting for the inevitable gray repaint. As for the bot-mode itself, i actually like it. It's just the color scheme that bothers me. Gray or black would make this thing look a whole lot better, imo. As-is, the combination of brown, pale green, and pale blue just doesn't look right, imo. The darker/more bronzy brown does look slightly better, but not better enough, imo.

    Toy-wise, i like the figure's look. But yeah, the color doesn't do it for me. Next repaint will be better, hopefully.

    Because people like the way he looks?

    I said this in the Desert Brawl thread. Just because he's not in the movie doesn't mean people aren't gonna buy him.

    How much does it suck to have an alt mode where your head is basically the seat of the aircraft? Basically Breakaway will have to let people sit on his face if they were to fly him (or ride in him). That's a pitiful existence, IMO.

    The darker brown only makes the lighter blue and green parts more jarring, to me. Lighter brown at least blends the hues across the figure and such.

    so its more bronze then tan and it has some new paint apps on the arms. not worth the extra money.

    Also I dont get the hate for this guy IMO hes one of the best looking jet formers for a long time. OK his colours look a bit iffy but that a minor issue when you know theirs going to be a repaint 2 months on

    Man, what I don't get is that he has this hunched look, but the rest of his body doesn't reflect it, making it look like his head is just broken.

    Hell, I could accept that if the colours were better. He has a nice jet mode, at least.
