    FOC Voyager Soundwave and AM Breakdown share a similar repaint scheme.

    An initial blue verson, a black repaint that represents an altered version of the character and a red Autobot repaint.

    And at least one of the repaints has a remolded head/part. (That we know
    of, we havn't seen much of Swerve)

    It would help your case a lot if you actually had pics to show the comparison. As it stands, though, cool observation...?

    Just though I'd point it out.

    Done.

    We're getting a lot of blue/blue-and-white Voyagers in the next few months, that's what it's making me realize...

    maybe that's why we're not getting breakdown 'for now' because hasbro doesn't want to have too many blue/white bots competing with each other on the shelfs. instead of field of yellow, it'll end up field of blue.

    Soundwave's not due until next spring, so it's doubtful that's the reason.

    I think the reason why we aren't getting Breakdown is because the costs of filling in all the AM ports on Breakdown and the mold itself doesn't meet standards. Something along those lines.

    I'm sure some of us would kind of welcome such a thing. Arcee, Ultra Magnus, Hot Shot, Breakdown, Soundwave, (both the Prime Deluxe and the FOC Voyager) Onslaught, Dreadwing, Thundertron... Versus Bumblebee, whom most are very tired of seeing virtually nothing but.

    yeah i know it's probably the am ports/powerizer gimmicks, i was being fatuous about hasbro worrying about too much blues.

    Are you saying the Cyrus version is also a repaint? It's not blue??
    If that's true I'm def cancelling my preorder :(
