Breakaway wasnt included in the second revision wave that stores are currently receiving.
Maybe it was in Revision 1... to make up for being short packed in Wave 3?
It would also give enough time for Wave 2 Chromedome to be cleared out so that the "same toy" in different colours isn't shelfwarming next to each other.

The first IDW comic series I've followed is the current Optimus Prime series. I've not followed the IDW-verse Transformers for long, so I've been reading back issues trying to catch up and get familiarized. I like this continuity, it's G1, but with more depth. In the 1980's cartoon, all the Autobots were purely good, while all the Decepticons were purely evil (Except Blitzwing and Octane), and they were all pretty one-dimensional. But in the IDW-verse, there's a lot of grey area where some 'bad' guys went dark in the first place for understandable reasons, and the 'good' guys have their own flaws and moments of weakness.

Using the D&D alignment system, I've made a little chart to give myself a sense of some of these characters. This is just one example of course.

Wish/To-Buy List:
Generations: Topspin, Misfire, Slugslinger, Cosmos, Ramhorn, Pounce and Wingspan, Brainstorm (either TR or Legends)

I did something like this here, and my picks were:

Note: These are based on their original Hasbro tech specs personae. Characters from different canon would vary, e.g. Takara Overlord and IDW Prowl would be Lawful Evil.

IDW's Overlord is based on his Hasbro G1 tech specs, which I would say is definitely Chaotic Evil. Selfish and cruel. Doesn't work well in groups and resents being given orders. Pretty much describes IDW/Hasbro Overlord pretty well - just look at his personal crusade against Megatron and the countless lives he killed just to get Megs' attention. Hasbro Overlord is like the Joker from the Dark Knight... he just wants to see the world burn.
