Much like his G1 self Brakedown is a white sports car.
It looks somewhat like a squashed lamborghini. The colours are white with black windows. Like G1 BD the hood is red with a con logo tampoed on. The detailing on the back of the roof is a dark grey. wheel trim and headlights are silver. Rear lights are red.
Transformation is pretty much what you would expect from a scout class but very satisfying nevertheless.
In bot mode BD gains a lot of new colour. namely blue on the arms and legs. In a nice touch its distributed pretty much exactly as it was on the G1 toy.
The head is more classics then movieverse but thats true for the figure as a whole. The only movie flaw it has are the gorrila arms
In robot mode BD has an absolute ton of articulation.
Ball jointed head and shoulders , double hinged elbows, ball jointed wrists, Ball jointed hips and hinged knees.
To my knowledge he's the only scout that can fold his arms in front of his chest.
In conclusion he's a great little figure and will display well in both a classics or movie shelf. I got him on Ebay for a song but I believe hes hitting store shelves here soon. for the 7 euros smyths are asking for scouts you can't really go wrong 5/5
