    Huh, so it's been changed from "Desert Attack Brawl" to "Deep Desert Brawl", then. Interesting. REALLY nice deco job, though, love the scorch marks.

    maybe they should change brawl to more pastel colors and call him 'Deep Dessert Brawl" and sell him with an optional can of whipped topping...

    no?

    ok, Aside from the wildely out-of-place translucent Blue (should have been smoke colored) i like this version WAAAAAAAAY more than the first, and was glad we saw him early so i could pass on the green one. can't wait to add him to my small movie collection.

    (that Prime redeco is just weird and doesn't work for me on any level ~ everything that's bad about redeco's in one figure: i know people are sick of Ultra Magnus or Nemesis Prime, but seriously, is this better?)

    "... unless the stealthiest mission involves any sort of environment that isn't teal and black"

    Huh. "Allspark Power" Nightwatch Prime has a different product code number than the version currently available in the UK.

    So It seems the color differences ARE final after all.

    It might. The colours bear some resemblance to Diaclone Powered Convoy's cab.

    Dear god no, damn you Hasbro and your lighter-happy burn jobs! Desert Brawl was totally on my hot list, blue and all (i actually love how the light blue looks with the tan), until you "Masterpiece Prime'd" him. :p

    maaaaaybe, but that's still a bit of a stretch since Powered Conoy (i have the reissue on display here at work) is more dark blue ~ which would have looked a lot nicer: maybe take a cue from the 'first strike' voyager and ditch the flames and black fade and do dark blue with a stripe. or something. anything that's not teal :p

    That's one sweet Optimus Prime. I'd so like to add him to my collection.

    I like Prime's deco but not the fact that he doesn't look like anything. Honestly, I'd rather have either a Magnus or Nemesis than this mash-up "Blue Prime" version of the two. Still looks good, though, but I wish it was the voyager mold instead because I like that one better and it costs half as much. Hasbro really should have flip-flopped this and the G1 deco.

    As for Brawl/Demolisher/Devestator/Ralph, he's my favorite movie bot design, and that deco's cool, but the deluxe is more than enough for me.

    They'll never recognise him once he gets the face mask on.

    I'd be happy if they'd just restock Leader Prime.

    Cool. I might concider getting the Brawl repaint instead of the origionaly deco. Mainly becasue the "camo" on the origional doesn't really look right to me for some reason, lol.

    I'm going to totally be tempted by NW Prime...gotta resist.

    Brawl, on the other hand is an easy pass. Tan & bright blue...yuck. Hideous.
