    What do you think the odds are of getting the Universe Lambo Brothers mold repainted into Breakdown from the Stunticons?

    I could definitely see this on in the next wave of Hasbro SE figures or as a Japanese store exclusive like Wildrider.

    What do you think?

    I assume it would be quite awhile if they even have any interest in doing one at all since Universe will be shelved again during the movie line. Personally I think they'd repaint Sideswipe into Red Alert first before even thinking about Breakdown. I'd be totally happy with another SE toy to release Breakdown personally.

    Yeah I'm hoping for a Red Alert repaint first but, I think Breakdown would be a great figure to do with this mold. I just hope they decide to make it a Hasbro SE figure and not a Japanese exclusive.......that way, it'll still be pretty easy to get. (unlike Wildrider.)

    hopefully they don't do to Universe what they did to Alt/BT - fill out the Decepticon roster with repaints!!

    Wow....so far the vote is "NO". I thought that since they already made Dragstrip and Wildrider that the Lambo brothers mold would be a perfect opportunity to make Breakdown.

    I think someone will eventually, though not necessarily the Hasbro mass-market. Possibilities include store exclusive, the "Special Edition" line that produced Drag Strip, or eventual Botcon or TFCC exclusive.

    I really hope we don't. Fourth repaint of the mold? Pushing it a bit, no matter how good it is. I don't think it would kill HasTak to make a new mold for Breakdown, then repaint it into Dead End.

    I think so. Like you said, SE or Japanese exclusive.

    I think possibly as an exclusive. Maybe with one of the other car molds done up as one of the other Stunticons as a two pack. Call it "Decepticon Stunt Team" or something. It could work.

    Hasbro needs to be convinced that they will sell enough to make a profit. Otherwise, it may be exclusive. I would buy one regardless.

    No repaints of this mold please. I want new molds not more repaints. Frankly, I'm tired of buying the same shit over and over again telling myself "Well, its good enough."

    No. I'd rather see Red Alert get made, and then they can make Punch/Counterpunch which would utilize the molds fullest potential.

    amen.



    i think i would buy it. this mold is incredible. BUT, keep in mind, its been used for sunstreaker, sideswipe, and soon to be red alert. a punch/cp repaint or a breakdown repaint would mean 4 repaints of the same mold, in 6 months! that's milking it a little imho

    With Universe G1 Series (Classics 2.0) approaching hiatus this summer, I would prefer that they release a repaint sooner rather than later, as later would mean perhaps 2 years or never.
    I would rather have Punch/CounterPunch be another mold if they are going to do it at all. Does the G1 version resemble a Lamborghini like Breakdown (which makes the Stunticon a better candidate)?

    he resembles a sports car, but i admit breakdown looks more like the lambo. both could probably work. i think p/cp would be a better idea because this mold is the perfect mold to do that with. it probably wasnt easy making the mold have two different robot modes. i think it would be too much of a drag to make another mold with too robot modes. if they pass using this mold for p/co i dont think they will make a classic version of him at all

    I'm surprised at the results of this poll as well. I understand the concept for Punch/Counterpunch, but I'd rather have a new Stunticon. Sooner or later, I wanna get Nem Prime and use him as Motormaster & I want to get that Drag Strip. The Wildrider, I don't know anything about.

    I'd actually love to see a Breakdown someday even if it is a re-paint. I mean we got Wildrider, and we got Dragstrip; if another Stunticon shows up in the Classics/Universe toyline I think it'd be great.
