    So far, Brakedown is my favorite Scout (aside from a certain epic toaster...) from the ROTF line.

    His alt mode is pretty much a perfect update to his G1 vehicle. He's still pretty movie-esque (his face is a little weird and he kinda has chicken legs), but overall he fits in pretty well I'd say (as well as Bludgeon does IMO). Plus scale-wise, against a collection of mostly tanks and planes, a smaller car seems more in-scale. So did any of you stick him in with your Classics/Universe stuff?

    No. But I don't collect much from RotF to begin with, and I'm making my own from a Universe Sideswipe.

    Yup. I put him on my classics shelf. Looks good. The alt-mode borderlines on cartoony.

    At the same time I agree with Brr-icy.

    I WANT MORE STUNTICONS.

    TFM Breakaway is clearly a Classics Powermaster Getaway. Personally I do not mix Movie-specific designs with Classics. I would prefer a Classic Sunstreaker repaint, if not mass release, make it Special Edition, Henkei (or Gentei) or TCC exclusive. A classics Dead End would best be the Cybertron Crosswise/ TFM Jolt mold, since that was used for Shattered Glass Jazz/Ricochet (in the G1 cartoon, Jazz copied Dead End's appearance. They are both based on Porsches anyway, even though Crosswise is more like a Bugatti Veyron)

    He's too small compared to Drag Strip and Wildrider (and even Bumblebee and Cliffjumper) to put him in my Classics stuff...but yeah he is very nice and I can see the crossover potential for others. I keep him with my Movie stuff out of personal preference.

    Yup. He fits nicely with my Classics Decepticons.

    In fact, I have several "Classics" Decepticons on my desk right now:

    Classics Megatron (Voyager)
    Henkei Thundercracker
    Music Label Soundwave
    Device Label Ravage
    Real Gear (camera) as Reflector
    RotF Brakedown
    Energon Bruticus

    They still look like a cohesive group, despite being from 7 different lines.

    Hell to the NO!

    Seriously though His alt mode passes, but his aesthetics are still far to movie for me.
