"Careful, Starscream, you may dislocate a landing gear patting yourself on the back."
"When we started designing [Knockout], the only directive was to make him a fast car, a foil for Bumblebee. I remember looking at his rims and saying ‘just pimp him out’. We have him lots of red and gold. I remember thinking that he’s be attractive in bot mode. Then the studio said that he’s the sexiest bot they’d ever seen. That’s where his vanity came from." ~Jose Lopez
Direct Quote from The Art of Prime.
An anon once asked me “what would’ve happened if Knockout had died instead of Breakdown?” This is my answer.
(also, in case it’s hard to see, these are supposed to be Vehicons holding Breakdown back, I messed that one up badly, sorry)
