....and here's Brawn! The Transformers Cloud info has been coming fast and furious over the past 24 hours. Just last night e-Hobby announced wave two would feature Starscream and Brawn. Starscream coming from the Transformers Generations Voyager Doubledealer and Brawn being the previously cancelled GDO Voyager Brawn, a redeco/retool of Transformers Prime First Edition Bulkhead. Then earlier today we got our first actual toy image of TFC-D02 Starscream. Now we have our first toy image of TFC-A02 Brawn! This image also gives us a nice good look at their faces.

TFC-D02 Starscream will be available through e-Hobby and TFC-A02 Brawn will be available through the TakaraTomy Mall. Pre-order will open on the 24th.

Check him out below:

Now that we finally get to see Brawn, now I'm not feeling him as much. I guess it's because the torso looks... bulky (Swear to God, Sabrblade. You better not do it.). Head is spot on, so I will give him that.

I'll wait until we get some in-hand images.

Can't say I'm all that interested in this. If this is how they're introducing the GDO Voyager molds in Japan, I'm curious to see what the others will look like.

I can see it now: GDO Hot Spot as IDW Pyro (which... actually wouldn't be a bad idea).

Many people do wish that the Hot Spot tooling had existed at the time that BotCon 2010 had its Pryo figure. ;)

Brawn's proportions are terrible.

...and made it even crappier!

Starscream looks a little better than I first thought, but still not something I'd buy. Brawn, on the other hand, I think looks awful. Wouldn't buy that at all. Had it come out during the GDO when it was supposed to, I'd have bought one to keep as spare parts in case my Bulkhead had ever broke, but that's it.

Not feeling these. As much as I like the paint on Screamie, I have the originals these are based off, and with all the great figures out there I still want, can't justify the purchase. The heads look really, really cool though.

yeah these repaints are just weird. i dont see a starscream when i see that mold. i mostly see blitzwing and a bit of doubledealer. and brawn bulkhead looks bad. its not a brawn mold at all. just sthap TF cloud. sthap. the megatron and prime were alright but its like they are not even trying.

If they went even more extreme than Brawn and blew Minicons up into Voyagers...

Firebot and Makeshift?

Firebot already got Hot Spot's deco once, and Makeshift's the first dual-rotor that springs to mind who isn't Highbrow or Obsidian. The latter also deserves to be honored as the best original name to come out of Armada by finally having it attached to a non-tiny toy. (No, Prime Wheeljack doesn't count)

Not interested in the Starscream, though the colors do pop, but I will acquire the Brawn. He will do nicely in filling in my Prime expanded universe Autobots.

Starscream actually looks pretty awesome. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but good. Don't think I have a spot for it in my collection though.

Brawn on the other hand is crap. It just doesn't not work at all. My initial thought was if it'd look better as Ironhide, but I think Bulkhead has too unique a physique to really work as anyone else.

e-Hobby and the TakaraTomy Mall have updated with many new images of the recently revealed Takara Tomy Exclusive Transformers Cloud TFC-A02 Brawn and TFC-D02 Starscream. Starscream is a redeco of the Transformers Generations Voyager Doubedealer mold, and Brawn is previously canceled Voyager GDO Brawn, which is a redeco/remold of Transformer Prime First Edition Voyager Bulkhead. Enjoy the new images mirrored below:

that crossed my mind as well.

i really don't think prime bodies with generations style heads thrown on them look very good.

starscream looks very cool.. i love the G1 accurate colors.. had this figure been released in the US for $20.. i'd probably buy it.

oh.. and i REALLY hate the null ray placement in robot mode. i'd rather them be in the proper position or just use a different concept. if they had maybe.. sawed them in half and made them looked jerry rigged to be handheld guns.. i think that'd be really cool and fit the uniqueness of the figure.

That Bulkhead is no Brawn. The only thing it is good for is the the head. Buy it, take the head off, use it on a custom that actually resembles Brawn. Hasbro/Takara and their shoehorning.......what will they think of next?? I surely hope the Generations Arcee coming out is not just a Generations Arcee head on a TF Prime Arcee body.....

They said at Toy fair that Generations Arcee is a car.

Though, it's a little ridiculous to think that they'd do to a mainline Generations figure what was done to this small time super limited side line.

I wonder if the shoulder issue is fixed on this version of the Blitzwing mould. This will be the fourth time (twice with Hasbro and twice with Takara) that this mould has been released and I know from experience that the issue wasn't resolved as far as Hasbro is concerned when the Double Dealer version was released. This being the second so far for Takara-ish, I wonder if it's been fixed. Anyone pick up the Takara version of Blitzwing? Did Takara resolve that shoulder issue just based on the problem with the Hasbro version?

Nope. Takara didn't fix it either.

Still would have preferred the GDO release stateside for $20-$25, but the deco is admittedly a huge improvement on the Cloud version. Alas.

I have it. His QC is better than Hasbro's (as is Doubledealer's is better than Hasbro's Blitzwing) but the issue isn't fixed with Takara's Blitzwing either.

E-Hobby only has Starscream, Brawn is only at TakaraTomy Mall. We could expect the club to put up listings for them, but price-wise you wouldn't be better or worse off with either.

prime aesthetics in my opinion just dont fit with regular figures. much like movie figures. think about the flipside: put animated or prime ratchets head on classics ratchets body and see if that fits.

for me, the drawbacks of brawn are his tiny head and stubby legs.

starscream however... is just unique coming from that mold. part of me says "nooo.... a tank? he's not supposed to be a powerhouse.." but i dont know. i just really like him. maybe its the spot on G1 colors thats grabbing me.

ill agree the biggest drawback of the cloud line in general are the prices. its asking a lot for glorified repaints.

:-? Hmmm... I wonder if that teeny noggin of Brawn's would fit on a Classics Kup body. If Hasbro would scale it down, it would probably look good on the IDW Swerve/Gears mode as well, but for some reason, that tiny head on Bulkhead's massive body makes Brawn look like someone inflated him until his chest plates are separating. Maybe they should rename him Bloat instead of Brawn? :lol:

That's because BH deluxe Bulkhead is a MUCH better Brawn with better proportions than that Cloud joke.

I still want that Starscream, but for 100$, I'll prefer the Supreme Starscream mold in G1 colors. Sigh, when the hell Generations Doubledealer will be released in Quebec?

Huh? No. Machine Wars is a future version of some form of G1, while Cloud is set in some higher dimensional non-G1 world called Cloud World.

In this image, you can see G1 Optimus (from the cartoon) on the left, and Cloud Optimus on the right, with both existing as separate individuals from each other (and all the other Autobots are the G1 cartoon characters like G1 Optimus).

Image

The reason we see the two together is because Cloud Optimus and Cloud Megatron (who is likewise a different guy from G1 Megatron) shifted their battle from Cloud World into the world of the (Japanese) G1 cartoon.

I'm iffy on the exact details surrounding this because the stories still haven't been translated into English yet, and Google Translate is useless in this case.
