    Same thoughts here, Breakdown was a total BAMF in the comics and got a great design,

    Knockout is flat out mysterious so far because we dont know ANYTHING about him.

    It's a big mysterious to me for I haven't got the Comic with Breakdown in it. Knockout is something.

    My only point of curiosity is why, out of all the already established big guys out there, did they decide to make Breakdown the big guns of the 'Cons when he was usually portrayed as an unstable fast type?

    Maybe a "name came after design" deal.

    Probably went "y'know this dude got the same colors as Breakdown... hmm..."

    Probably just a case of name rebranding.

    If I were to verture a guess as to why the choice of name, maybe they thought of it in terms that he "breaks down" any obstacle or opponent that gets in his way.

    From what I remember seeing in the pages of that preview comic from awhile back, TFP Breakdown looked to actually be mostly Blue.

    Bit odd though, because you'd think the guy named Knockdown would be the huge brute.

    Too bad, I liked Breakdown being a paranoid little pansy. I also guess this pretty much means we won't be getting the rest of the Stunticons or Menasor for that matter.

    Or maybe not! I've seen many scrawny boxers that could knock you out like mad.

    Plus Breakdown is just as brute-ish. Because he breaks

    and downs.

    Eh yeah.

    Actually come to think of it, his G1 robot-mode had a lot of blue on him as well. Though looking at the TFP design it looks like his alt-mode is what's going to be mostly blue.

    He reminds me a lot like a buff/gorilla-ey version of Dropkick, well his chest does, anyway.

    Yeah, I can kinda see it. It looks like he turns into some kind of big off road vehicle. I'm guessing him and Bulkhead are going to be paired up against each other.

    They'll be in season 1. If they weren't, then we wouldn't have heard about Daran Norris and Adam Baldwin being their voice actors.

    If he looks like that, Beatdown would be a better name than Breakdown. IMO.
