Breacher - Movie - Figure

Breacher

It used to be that scout class figures always seemed compromised. They were either brickish in their robot mode or compromised in their alt mode. These two setbacks, articulation and detail, have been improved greatly with the ROTF line. Breacher now attempts to take it to the next level with another feature Scouts haven't shown in the past: complexity.

Bio

Teamed up with his friend Seaspray, Beacher comes crashing out of the surf to deliver a nasty shock to Crankstart. The Decepticon was foolish enough to think he could hide on a remote strand on the east African shore, but Breacher is just as comfortable at sea as he is on land.

Robot Mode

Breacher is, appropriately enough, navy blue in color. He also sports white upper limbs and black on the forearms and hips. His head sculpt contains a lot of detail but the faceplate is mostly white, which tends to hide the details.

One thing Breacher does have is his twin barrel cannon. It pegs onto a bar on either hand via a horseshoe clip. These horseshoe clips (they are also found securing the doors to the forearms) are the robot mode's sole weakness. The clips are loose, so they tend to pop off rather easy. It's almost a moot point given this figure's vast attributes.

Articulation

Feet:Ball joint, 30 degree bend and unlimited rotation
Knees:Pin hinge, 90 degree bend.
Hips: Ball joint, 135 degree rotation and 90 degree spread
Waist:Stationary
Shoulders:Ball joint w/ pin hinge, unlimited rotation and 180 degree spread
Elbows:Ball joint, 90 degree bend and unlimited rotation
Wrists:Ball joint, unlimited rotation
Head:Ball joint, unlimited rotation and 45 degree tilt

Articulation is superb for a Scout class. You will have to reposition the back plate behind his legs to get maximum articulation.

Robot Mode Specs

Height:4.38in/111.3mm
Width:2.75in/69.9mm
Depth:1.38in/35.1mm
Supplied accessories:N/A

Transformation

Deluxe class transformation in a Scout class figure? You bet'cha. Rotate the elbows 180 degrees while keeping the door panels in their respective position. Fold in the hands. Pull the torso from the waist and cantilever it forward. Flip down the panel below his torso, flip the torso back to conceal the head, then rotate the alt mode cockpit to hide the head. Rotate the shoulders so the wheels point up. Lift up the backplate and rotate the waist 180 degrees.

Open the panels behind his legs. Point the toes inward, then fold the feet alongside the lower legs. Fold the legs into the thighs. Fold the rear doors into place. Close the 2 panels to complete the rear end. Noting the peg on the shoulder, fold the wheels into the front end and insert the peg into the belly. Align the tabs on the door panels to the rest of the vehicle. Insert the cannon into the bar on the turret and rotate into place.

Alt Mode

Breacher's alt mode is an armored amphibious personnel carrier (APC). Even with the small size the details are numerous. From the headlight cluster on the nose of the vehicle, to the slitted windows on the rear and the number "28" on both the nose and doors of the cab. You'll also find Autobot insignias nearby each number.

The turret features 360 degree rotation and the cannon can tilt upwards at a maximum of 75 degrees. All 6 wheels rotate on the APC, no shortcuts here like you sometimes find on Scouts. Breacher is truly the best of the best that are the Scouts in this line. He's packed with Deluxe class features in a Scout class price. One can only hope that Hasbro sees the value of this and continues to evolve the Scouts, and the rest of the classes, in attempts to further push the envelope.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 3.75in/95.3mm
Wheelbase:2.25in/57.2mm (from front to most rearward wheel)
Width:1.75in/44.5mm
Height:1.63in/41.4mm
Scale Ratio:N/A
Wheels: 6 rotating
Detailed cockpit:N/A

Verdict

Robot Mode: Articulation and detail are tops, weapon is a plus.
Alt Mode:Detail again is king here.
Overall:Proof that big things can come in small packages AND be done right.

Class:Scout

MSRP:$9

Yes, but I bet we'll remember more about this banter than you will about your heartburn-enducing celebration. Guten Tag (at least in my time zone).

While you two have been bantering, I have gone to a German dinnerhouse and washed down a half pint of Opinator Spaten, eaten of the Oktoberfest Sausage Sampler (5 different sausages), had a healthy dose of kartoffensalat (German potato salad), a bowl of egg drop soup and chased it all down with a sh... read more

And now I'm just angry at mt own sobriety. Oh well, October isn't over yet! As to customizing I know acrylic paint works best (when I say "know" I mean "heard") but from personal experience painting brush choice is almost more important. Go with soft bristles (prefer... read more

Must be, then again it is oktoberfest everywhere right now. I might try my hand on Breacher turning him into WFC Orion Pax. Only I don't know what type of paint to use. I'll check out the customizer section later

I hear that. If you don't mind waiting a little longer Amazon had the best price I found. I believe it was $15 or $16.
