iGear have announced the latest figure in their line of Mini Warriors, MW-03 Hench! You may know him better as Brawn. Check out the image mirrored from their facebook page below.

Update: Since Hench's reveal earlier today iGear have updated their facebook page with the following regarding the height of their next two Mini Warriors (the other being MW-04 UFO):

About the MW-03 Hench and MW-04 UFO, we plan to make them about 12CM≈4.7 inches, slightly higher than the other two released MiniWarriors, and the height of the rest Miniwarriors unreleased will be different too, depend on their scales in the G1 cartoon, will between 8CM to 12CM(3.1 to 4.7inches). We also welcome the proposal of the height of them, thanks.

I just got the previous two like 15 minutes ago. They're pretty decent. This guy looks slightly better. It'll be nice to have a Brawn update.

I wonder what took so long, since they announced UFO months ago.

Anyway, he looks cool. I hope we can store his shotgun somewhere... That's a real interesting thing about this line. You see "blasters" all over, but these weapons actually look like relatable guns.

these little guys are really great. Hench seems to have a really nice leg transformation, notice how both wheels wrap around to fill out the calf. Really nice looking, can't wait! Oh, and look, the knee joint pivots in the correct direction! Has his G1 wingsin bot mode. Looking forward to the inevitable Outback repaint.

looks like he may suffer the same head problem as rager...big fingers...tiny little space makes turning head difficult.

He'll be more poseable than Legends Brawn, but I think that Brawn had a better headsculpt. Henkei Brawn though had a much more accurate paint job so I just can't the need for Hench here. Olive green works much better for me than this bright stuff. Hench and Legends Brawn almost look G2-ish.

Wow this looks incredible! I was originally going to skip out on the mini bots but this is just too good.

I disagree on your comments regarding the headsculpt and paint job. Weird eyes and black face on Legends:


As for the Henkei offering, his olive green wasn't any more accurate to the original G1 figure, who was more of a forest green color:

I think IGear is quickly becoming my favorite source for Transformers. (Wait a minute.... Shouldn't that be Takara or Hasbro?) Oops.... Oh well... Once again IGear is going to get my money!!! I love the fact that we are getting such an accurate and sweet set of G1 figures from them. I just wish they would get going on getting my Ratchet and Ironhide finished and to me. :D

I think he meant this Henkei Brawn (the one in the middle)



Personally, I'm looking forward to the iGear one, and the rest of their set.

That would be correct. I have this one and don't really see the need for the iGear, although if I only had the Hasbro version, I'd probably bite.

It looks great, but ... I'll stick with Hasbro's.

Not that I think it's better. If the TF scene were slower I'd probably bite. This looks awesome. But I want some pretty big fish, so Legends Brawn is good enough.

I'll buy it, and any other Mini Warriors iGear make. I'm very happy with Rager and Spray.

They should really be working on a Gears. That's the guy missing from everyones Classics set.

I think he looks awesome.Why don't they finish what they already have announced first like their ironhide and ratchet before they announce anything new.I also wonder where is the free golden bee that was suppose to ship in February.

Ah, the most painful of deciding factors. It really hurts because these guys are definitely on the low end of 3rd parties. Especially through iGear's store.
