Review: [Hasbro] Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons Breacher

Figure Information
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Origin Series: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Unite for the Universe
Scale: Non-Scale
Height: Approximately 10.5cm tall
Original Price: 8 USD

Figure Blister Card:

Like typical scout classes, the packaging is a smaller version as that of deluxe classes, and this one containing the generic yellowish design for the Hunt for the Decepticons line, it's pretty neat containing a lot of target symbols around and I actually find it quite nice for the design. But anyways, that's that.

Figure Details:

Going to Breacher's vehicle mode first; Breacher transforms into a blue Ratel Infantry Fighting Vehicle.

Marked with the number 28 in some parts as well as the autobot logo, his vehicle mode is quite nice as even the blue paint used looks decent already, well, Takara's got it better but hey, the Hasbro is good enough already and it's pretty impossible to find Takara's Autobot Alliance line here, so , I settled with Hasbro. The details in the IFV really pops out even though he's pretty much shaded in one kind of blue only, I really like his vehicle mode as there aren't even colors which actually look off to me.

Now going to his robot mode, Breacher's ridiculously cool and probably, the coolest looking scout class in the HftD line. He still got the same paint apps as the vehicle mode and his machinery parts are colored in white, kinda weird for me but it's actually accurate from his colors in the Unite for the Universe comic, and even if it wasn't, it still looks better than the usual plastic gray Hasbro uses; and lastly, I really loved the color used on the black parts of Breacher as they give off the metallic finish.

Now if you've noticed above, Breacher has a number of points where you can attach c-joint weapons or simply speaking, the clip weapons I mentioned back in Recon Ironhide's review, in fact, his blaster itself is a c-joint weapon. And yeah, you pretty much arm him to the teeth if you have some c-joint weapons around. Probably, the only bad point about Breacher really is his c-joint points in his knuckles don't really allow weapons to tightly clip onto it.


While the vehicles usually just roll out, Breacher's vehicle mmode actually has one particular articulation point, that is with his turret, you can completely rotate it 360 degrees. And given that his blaster is a c-joint, you can partically raise it up a bit as well.

Now going to the list of Robot mode's points of articulation:
- Ball-jointed neck, elbows, hips and ankles
- Hinge joint knees
- Swivel-Hinge mixture shoulders
- Swivel joint wrists

Since Breacher's points are a majority of ball joints, his articulation is really flexible big time and you can actually do more if you have more c-joint weapons. He can pull off decent dynamic poses and has a good balance as well by standing on one leg doing a kicking pose. Fun shots follow XD

Final Thoughts:

So, for a wooping good price here, since he's on sale. And for that SRP in the US, well, Breacher's a very worth it Scout class, really impressive articulation, good paint apps and a really badass head. And as a bonus feature for it, his vehicle mode actually fits perfectly on HftD's Seaspray's back in vehicle to actually load him since they ARE partners afterall. Anyway, even for me who supposedly isn't going for scout classes, I picked up Breacher because he really looked awesome and he did prove to be one, so, yeah, he's a pretty advisable to be bought especially if you got Seaspray but in my case, I don't XD
