    Nuff said!!

    Built the head, cowling, and chest from various bits an pieces.
    The Head was tough. Those little pieces....
    It's from a Strika Shoulder.
    Tire is held by magnet and attached to the back too.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    All criticism considered, I retooled the head a bit.
    Much better IMO.
    Though it killed me to wreck the head I made, but I'm glad I did.

    Seriously ingenious! Love the head, that took talent! The hammer is a great touch as well!

    Brawn the Thor of mini-bots! Nice work. Just needs an autobot shield.

    Love the head, really Animated and gives a huge amount of character to the custom. He manages to look Brawn-y and cute at the same time, and the little hammer is just too cool!

    Next time, though, panel lines could be a little thinner. Just sayin'.

    Yeah, I was kinda thinking that too.
    I'm actually thinking about breaking my no paint rule and slapping some details and shading on him. Have to get some Tamiya colors first though. LOL!

    Pretty darn cool. Particularly since Hasbro did intend this guy to be Brawn for a convention exclusive. Only criticism I would give is that you should grab four more of those tires you used as the spare, and replace the original figure tires.

    I always thought this mold worked great as Brawn.
    Great job with the chest piece, it really differentiates it from the original mold, and i really like how the helmet came out, but the face sculpt is kind of distracting. IMO it looks too Bumblebee-ish, makes him seem too kid friendly, and detracts from the macho-badass personalty which characterizes him.
    Still, it is a really nice take on Brawn, and works great as a classics stand-in for him!
