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.

I just tried inverting the image, its just the command Inverse colour (ctrl+I) on Photoshop. Haha, seems like people in Transformer Asia are a bit lazy.

In any case this looks good, I would like to get hold of this, hope there is some shiny/metallic paint on him.

This figure is cool but i'm not liking his hands and head sculpt. Would get if it were cheap though.

I don't get it. Why is this mold in a "premium series" release. It's not good enough of a mold nor is the character.
Also, can someone point out too me what exactly is "premium" about this release. Just looks like the typical hasbro product shot that's heavily photoshopped too look way nicer than it actually is (Insert polishing a turd analogy here).

If you're saying that it looks just like the Hasbro version, consider the comparison of both versions below:





APS Brawl has a much more metallic finish than the Hasbro version.

As a lover of not only of tanks in general, but specifically the M1A1 Abrams, I would happily sell my kidneys to afford this (but not enough to trump MP-10).

Leader class Brawl was my favorite figure from the 2007 movie line. I Lso though he raised the cool factor in the scene exponentially. He made the 'Cons look badass, not like drooling panzies in the second one.

Might try some paint modding on mine just to get some nice highlights.

Good job on the decoding !!! Score one for the teaser haters !!!! 8)

On the figure itself, I own the Hasbro version and I wouldnt recommend the mold unless you are a huge Brawl fan. It doesnt hold together well in tank mode.

And a tank fan like myself. Can't forget the fans of tanks!

The other day I picked up my Leader Brawl to reconfigure my displays to accompany my incoming Christmas haul. Massive pain in the butt to transform, especially the arms, mainly because I hadn't touched it in two or three years. :HEADHURTS:

I probably would. He looks great, and would look even better next to APS-01 Striker Prime (especially now that I've sunk $$ into the Dr Wu/UFO/Cubex articulated silver hands, Orange Axe & Sentinel Prime Shield, and Chrome Buster Guns).

If you don't want him, then... I'm sure you've got better things to do than knock others' purchases. >:oP

"Knocking other people's purchase?"
I'm not knocking anything. The bitterness of your coffee is clouding your perception, here. :HEADHURTS:
I'm just warning that this will be sold at a premium price, like all these other foreign exclusives.
Beside, a shooped preview dont count. If they do ask 200$ for it, it better have more than a shiny new coat of paint and they better show real pictures.

Anyway, do what you will with your money, buy a overpriced movie figure, smoke it, eat it in a salad, I dont care.

(No knocking here, oh no.)

(ME SMASH!)

If people are willing to pay $100, $150 or even $200 for an old figure with a shiny new coat of paint, all the best :PEACE:

Your overwrought response belies your point, and reeks of knocking :lol:

Don't know why some folks are so critical of this release. Leader Brawl already goes for around $200 new on eBay, but now you can get the premium treatment. He definitely deserves it. The mold's incredible.

I believe he is referring to what appears to be paint applications on his hands that appear to represent weathered metal. Back when he was available in retail, his hands were plain ol' black.

EDIT: Thought you meant Brawl's hands. I'll hunt down said hands after I'm done with my damn project.
