Official character text from packaging...
An old racer on his last lap, BRAKEDOWN was the fastest around in his day. He knows every inch of track on the Speed Planet, and while his systems can't keep up with the supercharged speed of younger robots this old speed demon's still got one or two tricks up his sleeve. With his pipes rusting through and his suspension grown brittle with age, he's got to rely on CLOCKER, to whom he's passed his knowledge of the Great Race.
CyberKey Code: d2h7
BRAKEDOWN is one of the oldest TRANSFORMERS on Velocitron. He has been around almost since the first Cybertronian settlers arrived on Speed Planet carrying the Cyber Planet Key. This veteran racer was the Transformer that trained Override for her races when she was first brought on line. It was BRAKEDOWN that made sure she became leader of Velocitron -- the Speed Planet! In fact, BRAKEDOWN has been training and racing with the fastest and brightest speed stars of Velocitron for close to a million years!
Speed Planet: The pure racing culture of the Speed Planet is about to change forever, as it becomes the first battleground in the war for the lost Planet Keys, ancient artifacts missing for eons on the lost colonies. In order to save Cybertron Optimus Prime sends Hot Shot and Red Alert to face the untold dangers of this lost planet and an army of Decepticons, who seek the planet keys for their own evil ends.
The speed planet is a tangled mass of roads, trails and aerial race tracks, ruled by the dazzlingly fast Override. For millions of years, the inhabitants of the Speed Planet have been devoted to the pursuit of perfect acceleration, tuning their vehicle forms for optimum horsepower, displacement and torque. It is a turbo-charged world of cold air intakes, narrowed air flow profiles and stiff struts, where only the fastest survive, and the slow are left behind, grills choked with the dust of a thousand street battles.
