    Prime was the first animated series I saw after being pulled into collecting Transformers. I love it, I think it was great. Not super amazing or perfectly flawless or anything, but it was very entertaining to watch.

    Megatron’s "What are you doing inside my head?"-quote is engraved into mine forever, that scene was awesome.

    Glad to see it is getting some official recognition, it would be cool if this is the elusive Japan-exclusive figure, because everything else kinda doesn’t make sense to me. As a fan of Prime I don’t really want a repaint of a Generations figure or something, although that Siege Hound digibash is rather nice looking.

    I’m curious to see what’s in the box regardless.

    I didn't say anything about you saying there was anything wrong with animated. I'm just flexing the fact that Hasbro cares even less about my favorite show than yours :p

    Breakdown will be great to pick up. There are definitely some characters who could benefit from a new toy like the Insecticons and Knock Out. If this is a Studio Series for Prime, well, maybe some day we can get a Studio Series ish line for Animated, if nothing else Generations style.

    The fine print on the box says "Includes figure, accessories, labels(?), and instructions." A two-pack would say "Includes 2 figures, accessories," etc.

    It took over 20 years for BW to get integrated in to a full retail release in Kingdom. So I'm not shocked that there will be a few Generations style "homages" that trickle out for stuff like Armada, UT, and Prime in the meantime.

    Pretty sure Kingdom is Hasbro and Takara figuring out the timing for a full on nostalgic revival. So set your clocks/expectations for the rest accordingly.

    Wow......

    That breakdown was deep. Yet people wanted me dead for that Shrek-former nonsense. This put so much in perspective. And I bet most PRIME fans blamed The Hub's downfall all on "SheZow" to.

    I'm hoping it's not just the Unite Warriors figure and something else. WHAT that something else is in haven't a clue.

    Now I want this to be true. Do you see what you’ve done?

    At worst, I’ll just take Breakdown, if that’s what this is. When it comes to Prime characters, I’m easy to please.

    Selects Shattered Glass Optimus Prime and Ratchet revealed. Currently four pages, thread has already disappeared to page 2 of the news sub-forum.

    Packaging of Transformers: Prime 10th Anniversary "War Breakdown" glimpsed, no images of the toy yet. Already 15 pages.

    I guess I know who the winner is...

    Interesting. If it were a voyager I could see this being a release of Arms Micron War Breakdown, but I don't see that happening anyways since Hasbro said the reason they didn't release that stateside to begin with is that he was in "no mans land"... essentially he didn't fit the budget for any of their size classes. Too high a parts count from what I remember them saying back then.

    My guess...
    Diaclone Blue Trailbreaker color scheme... BlueHilux04.jpg
    Earthrise Trailbreaker mold... reduced-image_16822_0_1583095600.jpeg
    A new weapon and head based on this design but in a G1 style... breakdown-root-hammer.jpg

    I just don't see them doing an all-new transforming mold in the Prime aesthetic as some kind of online exclusive as great as that would be for Prime fans who missed out on AM War Breakdown... but a deluxe wouldn't really scale well with the rest of your old Prime collection anyway either. No, I think this is going to be an homage figure.

    Nah. I knew about the going over budget shit-show and the Aligned continuity madness but even then I don't think Hasbro or Takara hated Prime (the show) because of what happened. If anything they just swear to never do business with the studio and move on. I don't speak for the company but even they know that the shows has it's following. It's why Zombie War Breakdown was a thing and made regular appearances in Legends comics. Airachnid and Knock Out following suite.

    Burnout's point, though logical to an extent, would also have to apply to Generation 2 and HasTak never acknowledging that again as that almost killed the brand as well. To which we've seen the opposite. The oversaturation of G1 is mostly because that's what the pop culture keeps going on about.

    I hope this is a reissue of AM-12. Maybe Hasbro can do their own encore series like Takara.

    You’re right. I was in classes but I meant to check my spy patrol pack when I got home to see if it said Figure or 4 Figures.
