If they can release it at a reasonable price, I may finally be able to afford this mold!
I'm looking forward to know if it's really a Leader Brawl shiny reissue. And if it is, how it will look and most importantly, how the thing will cost.

So, let's play the wait-n-see game.

If this is true, then this will be a great opportunity for anyone who's thought about owning this bad boy. Definitely the best leader mold from the first movie packed with cool features and gimmicks that actually add to the figure. A must own for anyone into the movie toys like me (though I also think he needs to be displayed with the underrated Jazz figure, too - premium, of course!).

I'm serious hasbro should seriously consider selling the APS series at universal studios. The toys at universal are seriously just repackeged dotm and the same tf prime toys that everyone had/has a chance to buy at a lower price everywhere else.

I would buy APS brawl and striker optimus for 60- 80$ each at universal

Now will megatron get an APS toy?

Sentinel would be cool.

Screamer would most likely be a re-release of MPM-01.

I already have Leader Brawl, so I have no interest in owning the Premium guy. €20 / $26, try and beat that ;)

APS-02? Who was 01?

I don't really keep up with the Japanese movie toy line, so I'm clueless. >:oP

A new Leader Class Brawl!? Yes, Takara! I knew you would show more love for the tankster! :D

Well, that would be nice for those who can't get enough luck at the lottery.

And I say, Megatron would be very nice if he was either in his ROTF body, but with metallic paint job, or in his new DOTM body (please Takara).

Not sure what Sentinel would look like, but he should have much more detail. Some(?) DOTM toys lack it, so Sentinel should get rid of some red paint that makes him look boring.

And yes, Starscream would get re-released, but I can deal with that.

Some most likely choices in the series:

APS-06 Ironhide (needs more black detail)
APS-07 Soundwave (metallic paint job will do)
APS-08 Ratchet (similar to his Best Buy exclusive release)
APS-09 Bumblebee (HA version, but in his DOTM design) I think I'll regret saying that
APS-10 Jetfire (similar to the ROTF two pack that has him with OP)

Especially if it's an AFFORDABLE repaint.

Damn bastard goes for 200$ on Ebay.

Their Dark Energon Megatron was pretty good, managed to snag one at Korean retail (The irony kills, those who been to Korea will know).

But I don't have much interest in the LDR Brawl mold. Loved the Deluxe mold.

Looks like there is a wide range for the value of this guy. Seems like he goes anywhere between $100-$175 MISB and can be had for $75-$100 opened and complete. I would guess APS-02 to cost around $130-$150 so that would put the new guy about the same price as the old guy.

Jesus.
The paint must be something that will make the gods barf rainbows for me to pay that much cash on a movie figure.

If he is that one movie that received a TV series, then consider me "Lost in Translation." I mean... Truth be told, if I was not dead-set on my policy that prohibits me from buying any movie pieces, and I had the funding, I would have bought him. He is one of those shining examples that has me thinking that APS-02 will have fans develop a shrunken bladder. :-?

I bet it will feature more detail, but I would not expect the price to be below $180.00 .Just as APS-01 Optimus Prime or any other upcoming APS figures in the future.

The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a new image of Asia exclusive APS-02 Brawl with the image color inverted, however some savy computer users have managed to invert the image and give us a better idea of what this new Brawl deco will be. The images have been mirrored below.
