Transformers Generations Brainstorm Proto Vs Retail

Postby kuhlio » Thu Apr 06, 2023 9:32 pm

Hey guys. Tonight on the podcast we were doing the "Classics Retrospective" and the topic of the Generations Brainstorm came up.

My buddy at the comic shop in November of 2013 asked me to bring in my copy of Generations Brainstorm out of no where one day. When I walked in, here is what I was welcomed with! I think it is a test shot, but decided to share the photos for all those toy detectives who wanted to see how the figure had progressed through development!

Hope you enjoy!

Cool! That's a gray model, it's basically the same as a test model (the ones with random plastic colors), but they paint it with primer so any molding imperfections show up easier. Looks like there aren't any drastic changes, just some obvious spots where they hollowed the plastic for cost cutting.

A very subtle change, if perspective isn't playing tricks on me, is that some of the proportions seem to have been adjusted, like the arms and legs seem more narrow on the final toy. That, or I may need new glasses :lol:
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Brake-Neck/UW Wildrider, CW Offroad
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Pretty sure it's just perspective. Some shots the limbs do look bigger, but it's usually ones where the final figure is behind the model.

I think there is some perspective that is in play here- Basically I tried to capture side by sides, but only had whatever smart phone I was carrying at the time.
