Transformers Breakdown & Sunstreaker


Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Deluxe (whew) Breakdown and Sunstreaker are both re-creations of figures from the original 80s line. In this incarnation, they have the same body but different colors and heads.

As Combiner Wars Deluxe figures, they both can form a limb of a big "combiner" robot. Grab two more Deluxe figures, and a Voyager for the torso (such as Optimus Prime or Motormaster), and you've got yourself a combiner.

I like Breakdown because, of the five Stunticons, I think he's the best representation of the original character.

Sunstreaker is a bit greenish, and the changes from Breakdown are minimal, but I like how Breakdown's combiner cannon (the hand/foot/gun piece) shows that this repurposing was planned from the start, and helps make Sunstreaker look like himself.
