Sculpt:

Break-Neck uses the same mold as Dead End, with a newly tooled head. He converts from a race car into a robot, and can also transform into the left arm for Menasor. In robot mode, Brake-Neck uses the standard Generations Classics articulation that fans are used too, and has a dark grey, light grey, black, red, and purple color scheme that fits in G1 Wildrider. At the center of his chest, he has a Decepticon symbol in purple. In vehicle mode, Brake-Neck can transform into a race car with a dark grey, metallic pink glass, red, and a silver and metallic dark grey hood with a purple and silver Decepticon symbol. On the vehicles sides are painted red, where it should have been painted dark grey to better match G1 Wildrider (below). In the image, he does have red trim at the bottom, where the Combiner Wars figure sides are completely red between the tires.

Transformers Wildrider

Accessories:

No gun. He only comes with the pipe and the combiner part for Menasor’s arm.

Overall:

Brake-Neck is an excellent figure with a great G1 likeness to Wildrider.

Highly Recommended.
