Those eyes...

Hell, I'll admit it, that's why I bought Breakaway. Those eyes kept haunting me. (Plus, TRU had a sale on ROTF deluxes.)

Make sure to get the ROTF Voyager class Starscream. It's easily one of the craziest awesome transformations I've seen in quite some time.

Love this little guy.. "he's so cute" as my girlfriend put it.. to which my response was "Transformers are not cute!, They're ruggedly handsome... wait no. thats Hugh Jackman, damn it, OK he is cute"

"I've never seen anything this beautiful in the entire galaxy...OK, give me the bomb."

Excellent review, Andrew,

Excellent review, Andrew, and that does seem like a pretty neat toy, especially for the price. I don't mind the feet (or really, it's the toes that are the problem, imo) so much, but I would prefer the head weren't buried, as you say. Maybe it's more visible in person, but it seems too hard to see in the pics/video.

Some people had pointed out

Some people had pointed out that his head is mounted on a balljoint and can actually extend out if you scrape some plastic out of the body. It looks like it was originally meant to swing out a bit.

Hmm...not a bad F-35 toy at

Hmm...not a bad F-35 toy at all! I'd probably get this if there were a repaint in "normal" joint-strike fighter colors...and a more interesting head (sorry, this one doesn't do it for me). Still, not a bad toy at all!

awesome toy. also if you

awesome toy.

also if you want more head articulation its quite easy to do. just take apart the torso and movie the head (thats on a ball joint) and screw the toy back together. I posted a detailed walk thought on tfw2005

Good review :)

Some info : the lime green/olive green camouflage pattern on his wings is, I think, some sort of digital camo MARPAT, on real life military gear. Doesn't really make sense to put it on a jetfighter...but ok...

His colours remind me a lot of the VF1D & the VF1 cannon fodder from Macross. Kinda retro in a slightly tacky way.

Anway, I modified his wings to resemble the F35 jet, he's supposed to represent, a bit more.

Would this head lie to 'us'?

Q: Would this Breakaway lie to 'us' because his head is so cute to buy?

A: Yes. b/c he would only lie in jet mode, & that's the nature of The TFs. :)
