  • 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.
This mold was also used to make Excellion and retooled to make "Shattered Glass" Goldbug.
