TFCC 2013 Breakdown - Pictorial Review

It's been awhile since I went back to my hometown, took a day off on Monday just so that me and my wife could spend considerable amount of time at my parent's house. Comes back to the office today with a parcel awaiting me

There are 7 TFCC 2013 figures which are Scourge, Slipstream, Jackpot, Circuit, Breakdown and Ultra Mammoth with only 2 figures on my list, Scourge ( too expensive on secondary market nowaday) and Breakdown with Depthcharge being the freebie

First of all, this will just be a short review as the character had already been posted in Fansproject Causality CA-09 Car Crash and the figure is actually the 9th variant of the mold (Universe Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Generations Red Alert, Henkei Lambor, Sunstreaker, Red Alert, TFCC Punch-Counterpunch and G2 Breakdown from 2010's G2 Redux boxset)

In Package


Breakdown comes packaged in a box as opposed to simple baggie as most TFCC figures used to be.


Breakdown comes with a biocard/character card and an instruction sheet. Really like the phrase "If I'm so paranoid, then how come everyone IS watching me?"

Alt Mode


The first thing that I noticed was Breakdown is actually off white rather than white he was showed in stock pictures



I really like the color scheme though it does seems a bit...'minimal'. However, paint apps are nicely done with next-to-none smudges



Comes with a rubsign on top of the roof. This however, I think could've been applied better

Comparison Shots


Side by side comparison with G2 Breakdown from 2010's G2:Redux Boxset




Robot Mode


Honestly, there's a lot of repaint that failed. Lots and lots of them. But this Breakdown works, to me at least



Quality wise, Breakdown is tight and solid despite being the 9th variant of the mold.



In case you missed it, the head mold is a new mold, first used for G2 Breakdown in 2010.


Back in 2008, this mold was considered to be a great figure with awesome articulations compared to some of the Classics and Universe 2.0 releases. And it really this, even with today's standard



Comparison Shots


Having both side by side, suddenly fell in love with them, haha



I'm guessing Breakdown will be the only figure for TFCC 2013 that I will get for now considering how crazy Scourge's (and most RTS Laser Prime molds) price right now

Oh well!
