Brawn looks like a shellformer to me, with some really skinny legs.

Tuner Mudflap is the tackiest thing I've seen in many years! The paint apps appear very intracate and speak wonders for Hasbro in the future, but on this figure, with those colours... GAH!

I liked Brawn until I saw the video review.. Too much of a shellformer.

Brawn still looks badass...

I can vouch for Brawn's awesomeness from the front.

I have the wings folded out so it doesn't look as bad IMO. I'd still recommend him

The only thing worse than a tuner is a riced-out durpwagon... #-o

Just a heads-up, one of the Stingray photos found its way into the Brawn gallery: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... 2009/1/13/

Thanks for pointing out this error, 1337W422102. This has been fixed and the image has been moved to the correct gallery.

Glad to help, Boss Monkey! :P I got all excited, thinking, "Oh crap, he has flip-out blades, too?!" I just assumed the Corvette was a co-sell. #-o

Also, I noticed there were no John Woo/Max Payne-style shots of Brawn dual-wielding. Does his articulation get in the way of real badass poses?

EDIT: He couldn't be Death's Head, yes? No shield, cape, or other weapons, eh? And what would Spratt turn into, huh? :-B

Yeah, even with all the back kibble he still looks killer. I'll definitely be getting him!


Great galleries, Seibertron, TOP NOTCH! Just another reason why this is the best TF site, by a long shot... :APPLAUSE:

I agree with this statement, though I'm still not sure if I think "Brawn" is "Brawn". It's a cool looking Transformer, just seems like they slapped Brawn's name on the toy instead of actually making an homage. At least with Mindwipe there's something "bat"-like about him with his wing design in robot mode.

Thank you very much. I'm glad you're enjoying the galleries. Speaking of which, I'm going to head back downstairs to go work on some more galleries. I'm pushing to get all 10 of the recent Scout class galleries launched over the next few days, including a couple that I didn't finish a while back from the first wave.

Lovin' Brawn and Dirge. Sideswipe and Mudflap aren't my cup o tea though.

Great job as always snappin' pics boss!

Not really, though his back his a little top heavy so he likes to tip over because his feet won't always support him. I'd attribute this problem more to do with something with his feet than the weight of his back. I think I got some really great poses with him in spite of this though.

Hasbro must reaally be lazy. How does a couple of black stripes and a change of window colour constitute a repaint? They couldve at least been imaginative or make him yellow like Sunstreaker or repaint him in Red Alert colours.. Wouldve bought that for sure.

Black stripes are to Transformers what a new hat is to Malibu Stacey. It may seem like the same thing BUT THE WINDOWS ARE DIFFERENT AND THERE'S A STRIPE THAT MEANS IT'S BETTER.

Also, racing stripes make everything go faster. Now if only they'd added some flames to it too...

Brawn looks quite cool(he just needs a gimmick where his shoulder explodes...), but Dirge....I don't know, his face lacks the jaws, sharp teeth, and general Savageness of the movie Decepticons. His face is too Autobot ish...and the cone looks kinda weird.

Mudflap's always been ugly but he still looks cool.
MindWipe is just awesome, simple as that, I thought he had Dinosaur legs though, what happened?

Make the car go faster? Perhaps you're thinking of speed holes.

Anybody know if they fixed the problem with Sideswipes' hood not pegging in right? I like Corvettes so I'm thinking about picking up this figure even though I should wait for the eventual Tracks repaint.

Yeah, I was going to say "how about the obvious Tracks repaint?". Although, I don't think they'd do it. He did get an Alternator, but it was the first and last since G1. He seems to be a fairly obscure character. Strangely, Hasbro seem to be avoiding the obvious repaints and giving us...racing stripes. :?

Shellformer be damned, Brawn is badass and I want him! Love the dual-wielding pistols. And besides, some of my favorite TFs are shellformers!. They're all members of RiD, but so what? :p

I think Brawn looks pretty good, more so from the front than from the back; haven't picked him up yet though. I do have both Dirge & Mudflap & I think they're better in person. Dirge's alt mode is very sleek w/ no kibble that's common w/ the jets; robot mode isn't as bad as I thought it might be. I was originally against Skids & Mudflap frankly because the characters annoyed me, but this repaint is actually pretty good IMO. Has good articulation too.
