Breakdown (EarthSpark/1-Step Flip Changer)

Getting back to our ongoing look at the EarthSpark 1-Step Flip Changer toys (and realizing I've skipped over Megatron and Twitch) is Breakdown. Breakdown is a rather odd entry in the figures as you can see that he's a straight repaint of the Wheeljack 1-Step Flip Changer toy. Of course this doesn't leave us with a very screen accurate depiction of the character... but you know what? It looks really good in these colors. Like, this didn't have to be Breakdown. They could have used these colors and called the toy Wheeljack GT or something. I legitimately want a regular Wheeljack toy in Breakdown colors now. Aside from how nice the toy looks... it's still the same toy mold as Wheeljack (whom I've talked about before).

So there's nothing new here. Fortunately it's a good figure (if you like Flip Changers like I do) and man that Gobots comparison I've made with these guys rings through even more so with Breakdown. Wheeljack already reminded me of Major Mo, this one does as well... but with these colors I can't help but to compare it to the white version of Crasher. Part of me wishes they'd outright make Gobots characters in these molds. That'd be neat.
