    I saw him today at Walmart and am on the fence as to whether to get him or not. He looks like he'd make a good Brawn. Is anybody using him as a Brawn stand in? Is he worth picking up?

    I don't like him as Brawn, but if you do like him as Brawn - go for it!
    He is a pretty cool little guy. Cool mold and good colors on him.

    I just picked him up the other day, he's a great little bot. I say go for it.

    I use him as Brawn in my Classics display. He's awesome, go for it!

    It's a great mold to begin with and I do like those colors on him. I always kind of looked at him like a movie-verse Road Buster. Definitely a better homage to the G1 character than the DOTM version will be.

    I don't have this version of the mold, but Scattorshot was one of my top five favorite Transformers of the whole ROTF line.

    I like this idea -- the more Brawns and Brawn-like figures, the better!

    I like him I tend to use him as a colour matched partner for Deep Dive. surely some place must have the ROTF Scouts on offer in the USA ? - they are giving them away in the Uk I saw Insecticon for £2.40 (usually £7.99) in Sainsbury's last week.

    I use him as a Brawn stand-in, and I actually like him quite a bit. His colors, robot mode, and alt mode are almost identical to Brawn - so instead of spending $25 for a legend on Ebay, I went with Firetrap.

    He's definitely worth getting. His transformation isn't too bad either.

    AWESOME little guy!

    The original mold's color just looked out of place. This deco looks more "real world".

    And he reminds me of G1 Brawn, too.

    The ROTF Scout molds were fantastic...

    Scattorshot was a pretty nifty mold. Get him if you want but i don't see him as Brawn due to the head.
