MP13 will be a remold of MP12 – probably Breakdown

Transformers MP13 Masterpiece

Not such a big surprise afterall

A bunch of hoopla is spreading in Transformerland due to the typical spooky Japanese methods of teasing new figures. We see a black silhouette of an upcoming toy with no size indication or explanation.

If you look closely, the profile very closely resembles that of the newly revealed MP12 Sideswipe prototype, minus the giant shoulder cannon. My guess is this is a remolded Decepticon version of MP12 as Breakdown. Simple as that.

EDIT: I was wrong

The Juice is Loose!

Botcon has been pulling auctions for any pre-release Botcon 2010 figures this year. This has become a pretty common occurrence and keeps the lid tightly sealed on just what we will be seeing at the convention this year. However, this has left plenty of room for speculation…

Amidst the Botcon crew’s best efforst, these valuable little plastic guys still get out into the wild. With stuff appearing on Taobao now, language barriers are going to be keeping figures that shouldn’t be available hot on the market.

Pink and teal never looked so menacing

KOtoys.com has gotten their hands on some hot plastic – Botcon 2010 Breakdown! This figure is going to be one of the gems of the set so prepare to be forkin’ over the big bucks!

See all the photos at this gallery on photobucket.

Looks like for those of us with the means, we’ll be able to get one of the most alluring figures from the set thus far well before the convention itself. Are you ready to get your ‘con ‘Con?


War For Cybertron character recap

A lot has happened since my last post. Two more characters for War for Cybertron were revealed yesterday, Autobot Warpath and Decepticon Barricade.  This is beefing up the roster quite a bit, although we already knew about Warpath (we just hadn’t seen his pretty face yet).  Barricade is another cross-generational character jumping into G1 canon from the controversial movie-verse just like Demolisher from Armada.

So I think it’s time for a little recap of the cast thus far.

Transformers War For Cybertron Autobots roster

What a fine looking group of individuals


  • Optimus Prime
  • Bumblebee
  • Ratchet
  • Ironhide
  • Warpath
  • Air Raid
  • Silverbolt
  • Jetfire
  • Jazz
  • Omega Supreme
Transformers War for Cybertron Decepticon roster thus far

Yeah, my money is probably going on these guys to win the war, err, game.


  • Megatron
  • Starscream
  • Skywarp
  • Thundercracker
  • Soundwave
  • Breakdown
  • Barricade
  • Shockwave
  • Demolisher
  • Trypticon

Exciting, exciting! If you look at the roster images above, you can see that a few characters are from the same body model – Starscream and Skywarp are the same, Ironhide and Ratchet share the same vehicle mode, and Barricade and Breakdown are in the same stance and could possible share the same model as well. There are many similarities, including their stance.

Warpath and all of the exclusive pre-order characters have complete unique stylings which is great to see. We can all expect to get a nice smattering of character designs this Summer.

So who wants to make some more predictions on characters we will see? I already guessed Lockdown, so it’s time to make some more guesses!

– I’m going to guess we’ll see Cliffjumper on the body style of Bumblebee.

– Super special unlockable Nemesis Version of Optimus Prime in black

– I still think we are going to see Onslaught as a Decepticon.
Feel free to share your own guesses by leaving a comment!


Botcon 2010 brochure posted – G2 Clench, G2 Streetwise & Skybyte confirmed

Botcon 2010 Skybyte???

Could this be close to Botcon 2010 Skybyte? digibash by Whitemocha photo from Seibertron.com

Well they have given up the ghost – the characters in the upcoming Botcon 2010 set have been revealed – G2 Pyro, G2 Breakdown, G2 Streetwise, G2 Clench, and… SKYBYTE?

Apparently we’ve been thrown a curve ball and Predacon Skybyte will be entering the fray this year.  Most are making guesses at Energon Sharkticon as the Skybyte mold and Onslaught as Clench.  Streetwise is also expected to be Prowl, especially since we already know that mold will be used as Rapido.

My guess is that Streetwise will be his G2 incarnation, which is a jet black police car.  It would be a good counterpart to G2 Breakdown.

If you want to see the brochure for yourself, visit botcon.com and you can see it all for yourself.

With the brochure finally revealed, is registration right around the corner?  This little Collecticon definitely thinks so…  Let’s hope that online registration doesn’t go down in the opening moments, and get your trigger fingers ready!


War For Cybertron Lockdown coming?

War For Cybertron Breakdown vehicle mode related to Lockdown?

Shiver me timbers, these guys look separated at birth!

The Transformers War For Cybertron website was update today with new character bios for Air Raid and Breakdown. We also get to take a look at their alt-modes, which are a bit revealing.

"Get down!"

Breakdown’s alt-mode is almost identical to the silhouette of Animated and ROTF Lockdown’s: a caricature of a mean bruiser sort of muscle car. Although the vehicle modes do have some differences, over-all, this is how one could expect a War For Cybertron version of Lockdown to look.

With last week’s announcement of Demolisher joining the cast of War For Cybertron, all other Transformers storylines and characters are literally up for grabs to join the fight. Since Lockdown appears to be one of a handful of new generation characters to cross-over into multiple storylines, it is definitely plausible to see him appear as some sort of repaint version of Breakdown. Perhaps he is an un-lockable characters, or another part of the DLC.

Or maybe he isn’t in there at all and I am just grabbing at straws. Who knows, but I’ve got my TF sleuth nose to the ground from here on out until the game’s release later this Summer!

Wat For Cybertron Lockdown?

A horrible execution of a debatable idea.


Generation 2 Teal Breakdown is part of Botcon 2010 – TOLD YA!

Looks like there was a sale on purple and teal at the plastic factory this season!

Botcon.com has announced the next figure available in the 2010 boxset of figures and it is, as predicted my yours truly, Teal Generation 2 Breakdown in the form of the Sideswipe / Sunstreaker mold.  It even has a hilariously resculpted head!

Of course this means we will get a black Sideswipe.  It’s not even a questionable possibility.  Feast your eyes!

Botcon 2010 G2 Breakdown

We already know Botcon has an obsession with this guy... Original figure by Frenzy Rumble

If the stars are aligned, there just might be a sale on flourescent purple and teal plastic. If that situation is upon us, we are more than likely going to see G2 Ramjet’s estranged brother, G2 Breakdown. With a history of releasing two versions of this elusive figure in the past, no Botcon Generation 2 set would be complete without this little guy.

How funny would it be to see this before we see an actual Generations / Classics Breakdown?
