No prison can hold the Autobot escape artist Breakaway. He's been imprisoned countless times, and has escaped every instance. Decepticons continually try to make a cell that can hold him, but they've never succeeded.
The Reign of Starscream
After the defeat of Megatron on Earth, Starscream retreated to Cybertron with plans to reconstruct the All Spark. Arcee followed him and put together a team to stop the Decepticon's mad designs, of which Breakaway was a member. He partnered up with Strongarm for their assault on Simfur.
- Breakaway (Deluxe, 2008)
- Accessories: Launcher, missile, Cyber key
- A Wal-Mart exclusive redeco of Cybertron Hot Shot with a color scheme inspired by Generation One's Getaway, Breakaway transforms into a modified white Chrysler ME Four-Twelve concept car. He comes with a clear-red Cybertron-Autobot key that deploys transparent red wings from his spoiler when the key is inserted into the rear of the car. The toy also comes with a spring-loaded, missile-launching gun that can be carried in robot mode or pegged into the roof of the car mode.
- Breakaway was originally designed for the 2008 Universe line as a new version of Generation One Getaway. The name did not clear trademark, and he (along with wave-mates Fracture and Crankcase) were shuffled into the Movie line as exclusives.
