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.

Assuming this is real. Wow. This is why I lost interest in Hasbro. Well not this. But ugly **** 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 ****. 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 ****, I need a dose of robot action figure after looking at this ****.

end rant.



:APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Thank you for speaking the truth my brother.

Now everyone who has "Hench" on pre-order can I get a HELL YEAH ???

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 **** class before responding.

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

You're right. You are far to grown up for us. You should leave and be around normal, well adjusted people who completely agree with you.

Thank you for showing us the way! You're an inspiration!

That's this fandom for ya. Half of us are stuck in the past and treat every new thing as a direct insult. It's best to ignore them, they don't respond to things like logic or reason.

I do think the head doesn't match the body. Just like that Cliffjumper and G2 Megatron, it's a completely different aesthetic and they don't work together. It's like putting a baby's head on an adult body.

LOL! But seriously, I applaud them for trying to reach out to other characters...but no, not for me at all. I will pick up Wheelie before this guy...bring on Hench! And Krok...welcome to the real world. You think this is bad....I have seen far worse out of the fandom than just this. Personally I'd rather have people dog Hasbro than just treat them as a living messiah of toys or something.

I tend to agree to some degree with Krok.

A couple months ago everybody was going head over heels for FE Bulkhead. Now it's the devil spawn, because the head is different.

I don't expect everybody to like everything, or agree with everybody, but when people start to disagree with themselves because the head is different.... They need to consult psychologist..

Seriously, the head is so offensive, a once praised mold for its greatness, and cartoon accuracy is now complete crap?

Anyway, I like it, if I can get my hands on one I will. And if this may be the only way to get FE molds rereleased over here then fine. The head to me is fine, sure it's not Primish, but it works to identify the character, and the color scheme is close enough to bulkhead for it to work as.ri,e Bulkhead.

I dont think it's that bad I mean if u are looking for a g1 updated version this is not the right figure for u. But I think he looks big and tuff and the head is not cartoon looking like bulkhead. I think this figure would look a lot better with some slight color change and maybe holding a gun and not a wrecking ball. Or maybe just slap this head on a Sargent kup body. Idk but I'm picking this guy up I don't think he's as bad as sdcc bruticus.

Look at it this way. Let's say we take your girlfriend, who has a a great body and is the object of affection not only to you, but also your friends and replace her head with that of Sylvester Stallone.

He has a point though. People aren't saying the mold is bad. The head makes it look goofy as all hell. I'd like to imagine he waddles like a damn penguin when he walks. (Someone PLEASE make a stop motion video of this!) That Mold is awesome and will always be, but one little thing like that can ruin it. The Asian exclusive Cliffjumper being another perfect example
