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.

thats pretty bad, the head sculpt is good but that body is just way to big. Reminds me of pinhead from puppet master, please some one kitbash this to look like that.

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.

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.

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.

That's all relative to the ammount of money you have invested in them. If you only have a few figures you bought from wal-mart or something yeah, I can see that. But if you have spent more on just your transformers than the price of a mid-size car...you have to be somewhat emotionally attached to them, otherwise you wouldn't have spent that kind of money.

I like it. I love the mold, the head isnt bad and dammit i dont think it looks bad as a whole.

Im obviously a fool and no doubt somebody will call me one for having this opinion. Krok is right, way too many people on here fly off the handle way to quick and to ridiculous extremes and now we've got the new trend of people that take a perfectly sensible and valid point like the immature responses and act like ignorant dicks trying to shoot it down. I know theres a few intelligent asshats among the vocally immature minority, but dont say youve got a right to express your opinion and then shoot down those who point out youre being a dick. coz youre just being more of a dick. i could rant all day on the abuse the freedom of speech has suffered and how it doesnt excuse lack of manners, but hey, im a brit, what do i know, america gave us freedom... oh wait.....

If you dont like it, youre not going to buy it, yet we have these lovely nerds that post 500 words rants on the utter shittiness of toys that others may like. Im not going to shoot down UltraMason's post, hey the guy has the right to his opinion, even if its childish and over dramatic, but he's totally ENTITLED to express himself, just like im ENTITLED to call every opinionated, entitled, over dramatic whiney nerd a joke to the fandom for behaving in such a childish, pathetic manner over plastic toys

btw, other than the head size, i dont find GDO Cliffy too bad. It was a daft choice to use FE molds but its Hasbro Asia, Brawn is likely never getting a release outside their territory. And instead the US and hopefully the UK will be getting FE Bulky, so really... its not a big deal what this guy looks like since he's gonna be too difficult/expensive to buy and youre getting the original anyway

Let the hate consume us all! And we aren't saying people that like it are wrong stumpy, I was merley pointing out that MOST of us are just saying the head looks goofy, which deals in no way with the mold. It was said how we loved FE Bulkhead, but now that Hasbro put a Brawn head on it we all hate that mold......not true. Most of us have said that the figure looks funny BECAUSE of the head, not the FE Bulkhead mold itself. And you're right, if there is only ONE opinion, it's not an opinion anymore...it's Fascism.

I appreciate the idea of updating G1 Brawn into a mold that looks much more the part of "strong man" he played, but yeah, this didn't work out as well as hoped, I think. Does anyone with good photoshoping skills want to try slapping that head on the Commander class Cyberverse Bulkhead body and touch it up with this paint scheme?

And Krok, if you think some transformers fans are over the top with the fanrage and venomous spite, be glad you're not a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. :roll:

Oh trust me I have enuf of them I used to have over 600 TFs I was missing 4 figures from the dc universe classics line and I had all sub lines and Matty figures not even released yet. 300 marvel universe figures a hefty amount of dc direct figures. But in the end I sold almost everything except anything chug related and prime and a couple Radom batman and green lantern figures. I had every single DOTM figure released in Americas Retail stores plus the last wave that never hit. Every human alliance figure almost every animated figure I didn't like the activators I even had the takara figures that didn't make it to the states. I have a ton of 3rd party including most FP sets. I have shattered glass Hotrod and henkei wildrider. And even after selling most of it except for chug figures I still have 300 TFs figures left. But the point is I'm attached to my figures but I sold all that so I can go places this summer with my family. I didn't have to sell them but I would rather have the extra cash to do more things with my family because no matter how much I love TFs I could never compair them to my beautiful wife and kids. And I don't think any other man in their right mind should either. Atleast I made YouTube videos to remember my figures by lol

I'm the same way, that's why my collection is so small in a relative sense. I tell my wife all the time that if I can afford a TF, and we can still make ends meet with a little to spare, she' ok. She also knows I will never put a TF over her and my son. I'm not saying to be emotionally attached you have to put TFs over EVERYTHING in your life, but you have to have some connection to them. That's the whole reason I started collecting almost 3 years ago, for my love of TFs. And I agree with you, no sane person should ever put this hobby over their family...cause then I believe they have a problem.

It was a daft choice to use FE molds but its Hasbro Asia, Brawn is likely never getting a release outside their territory. And instead the US and hopefully the UK will be getting FE Bulky, so really... its not a big deal what this guy looks like since he's gonna be too difficult/expensive to buy and youre getting the original anyway

When I first saw gdo cliff I thought he was bad but after I got him in hand I like him. It's just that everyone is so used to seeing his body on prime cliff. But once u get passed that he's a really good figure and I think brawn is gonna be the same way.

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.


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.

This is such a bad compairison lol I like my TFs but I no way will I ever consider one the object of my affection lol they are just plastic it's not that serious.


Affection means 'liking something', not 'having intercourse'.

Anyone else noticed how his torso now looks like a giant head? The doors are his angry eyes, the brown section is the inside of his massive open mouth and he even has two fangs at the top!

Block out Brawn's head with your thumb and you'll see it.
