It looks as though Transformers Generations Voyager Brawn (the retool of First Edition Bulkhead) has been dropped from the GDO Voyager line-up. This would explain why Brawn was noticeably absent from the display cases at SDCC 2012 when Hasbro announced the GDO series would be released domestically as Toys"R"Us exclusives. Site sponsor Kapow Toys has shared the following information regarding the GDO Voyager case assortments.


The case assortments are in for the soon to be (officially) released GDO Voyagers and someone is missing! yep Brawn seems to have gone walkies from the release with the case assortment now reading as

1) Megatron x 2
2) Powerdive x 1
3) Hotspot x 1

Expected as much. Did anyone actually want him, though?

So wait, does that mean that he's not going to be released in places that aren't Asia (and therefore cost a boatload of cash to import?), or has he been completely scrapped as a toy, even for out Asian brethren?

I hope it's the later, cause then I won't have to order him for my collection (I'm collecting all different characters with Prime Body-types), and I don't really care for his near-Bulkhead paint job and tiny, baby-man head.

Sounds like he's not coming out anywhere... GDO was the Asia one. Hasbro's here stateside.

No complaints. I didn't like the way he looked anyway.

Whose brilliant idea was it to take a green figure and repaint it in... a slightly different shade of green?

8-}

Good riddance to this terrible idea.

Who needs Brawn? His bodies to big for him, anyway. G2 Megs would be perfect.

Good choice. We got Hench coming out soon and also a kit that turns Hound into Brawn anyways.

Hey, at least brawn had a different shade of green. Cliffjumper, on the other hand, just has a retooled head, the other parts of the figure is identical. #-o

Does anyone actually have Brawn in-hand? I've been trying to get these for the past five weeks and have had no luck via eBay.

The first one I purchased never received a tracking number. After sending several inquiries to the seller and receiving no responses, eBay refunded my money after I opened up a case for it.

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F251121152654%3Fss%20...%201439.l2649%3C%2Fa%3E

I purchased a different lot afterwards that included all four Voyagers and all four Scouts. The seller gave me the run-around on my package, which indicates they lied to me now that I know that Brawn has been dropped. eBay said I can open a case for this lot next week to get my money back.

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F261086931701%3Fss%20...%201439.l2649%3C%2Fa%3E

I noticed there are none available on eBay currently so I'm assuming the Brawns that I was supposed to have never were. Frustrating. Just want to get my hands on these!

I'd imagine Brawn's one of those cases where they got far enough to put him on the cross-sell but not enough to have any real number of packaged samples.

Im sure there will be a few prototypes leaked out sooner or later. Are you willing to shell out $1000 when they surface ? (Hence Animated Voyager Thundercracker)
