A Closer Look at Transformers Generations Voyager Brawn

Postby El Duque » Thu Aug 09, 2012 5:00 pm

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Our fellow Transformers fans on TFW2005 have posted a clearer image of Transformers Generations Voyager Brawn, a reuse of Transformers Prime First Edition Bulkhead with a newly sculpted head. The image comes from the cross sell on Transformers Generations Voyager Hot Spot's packaging and gives us a much better look at the figure's new head.

Last month during SDCC 2012 we learned that most of the Asian Exclusive Transformers Generations figures would be making their way Stateside later this years as Toys"R"Us exclusives, however this figure was noticeably absent from the displays and official images. For the moment Brawn seems to be in limbo in terms of a domestic release.

The head really screams "Brawn". But that body is comically oversized.

are they serious or is this some sort of fake thread?

Assuming this is real. Wow. This is why I lost interest in Hasbro. Well not this. But ugly shit crap jokes like this. What happened to Transformers man? I swear it's like Hasbro said " eff it guys, this junk is for kids so let's just pump out a bunch of garbage, and sell real toys to adults under 3rd party flags"

I mean. Look at this piece of shit. Then look at a pic of Hench. I'm done. No Im not. Still ranting. This is the kind of ugly crap that makes me suprememly happy to have grown up in the Gobots, G1, Robotech era.

Transformers is (the toys lately) a joke. I'm sure there will be a white knight to shoot down my opinion and scold me for having an opinion. Enjoy your 'brawn'... I'm gonna go buy a Jeeper Creeper or some shit, I need a dose of robot action figure after looking at this shit.

end rant.

Motto: ""Excessive force is not necessary.""
Ok, I'm going to be the odd guy out here.

Now THAT'S a Brawn!

Sure, he's all big and Bulkheady and whatnot, but come on, does the original normally proportioned mini-bot Brawn really scream STRENGTH like this body form does? I think not!

The only issue I really see here is the coloring. Yellow and silver are really needed to drive home the G1 Brawn feel and thus compliment the G1-esque head mold. With colors not much different from the original mold's, it actually draws attention to the fact that this is simply a new head slapped on Prime Bulkhead's body.

Why don't they like to fully think these things through at Hasbro?

I'm beginning to think this mold could have promise as Unicron with a new head and a repaint, or maybe as a Sharkticon with a repaint..

That said, I might pick be up if it makes it stateside, as I adore the FE Bulkhead mold. Probably not be arsed to pay import prices if not.

Laughable indeed.
That mold is soooo out of context to Brawn in every form and fashion.
Piss poor Classics release if you ask me. Lazy.

I usually snap up any Neo-G1 stuff that Hasbro releases, but I can't pull the trigger on this one. As far as I'm concerned, movie scout Firetrap fills the Brawn role perfectly.

There's gotta be a novelty to that. An episode where Brawn grows oversized and he one-mans the entire 'con army? That time when the attributes of every character get reversed? SG Brawn, where he's really HUEG, but a total pussy? A robo-genie comes to him and Wheelie and grants them a bigger size? :lol:

So many strange things can come from this figure. It's just so absurd.

This does little to undermine my belief that the entire GDO subline is being produced to buttress Hasbro's intellectual property in Asia and relating to what it considers "counterfeits". Almost every character that is appearing in it has, or will have, a third-party doppelgänger.

I can hardly wait to see what sort of outlandish repaint they try to pass off as Assaulter, erm, I mean Broadside.

Oh lol, the fanrage... anyway, this one's a pass for me. The size of him or his body in relation to his head isn't even that bad, I just feel the Prime aesthetic really doesn't work in a Neo G1 application.

I’m not sure why you consider a new head sculpt to be lazy.
A straight repaint would be lazy, calling the character a name that has a weaker visual identity could arguably be considered lazy (Powerdive, while lovely, contained very little Powerdive for instance and few people minded).

Sure, Brawn may not work as Brawn (I’ll reserve my opinion until in hand photos surface) but to call it lazy is incredibly unfair.

But honestly, call this the straw, because to hell with this forum.

I’m honestly not sure how everyone summons such vehement hatred for anything produced post circa 1988 on a daily basis and I’m honestly not sure why the loudest and more obnoxious fans feel quite so entitled and deserving of Hasbros undivided attention, especially considering just how loud and obnoxious they are but the bile that comes from this forum is inexcusable.
Not everything Hasbro produce is pure gold but the way this forum reacts is just embarrassing when you consider that behind the keyboards are not 12 year olds but chaps in their middle ages with 12 year olds.

Yes, you have opinions and I’m sure it’s a lovely and unique snowflake of a thing but take a deep breath before posting, considers maybe, that this limited release retool is not the worst thing to happen to your family, that Hasbro is not threating to drown a loved one unless you make the purchase and show an ounce of fucking class before responding.

But like I say, my toys have long exited the pram, so carry on.
