    A small follow-up to the thread I started a while back:

    Brawn thread

    So in the end its not really much of a kitbash but more of a reprolabel makeover.

    I haven't decided for sure if I'm going to give Brawn some real "hands" from my spare G1 Outback yet.

    What a difference!! :thumb

    That's pretty much what everyone has been telling me, so I think I'm going to do it.
    The "claws" or "meat hooks" just really look out of place now that I've done the other cosmetic mods

    You want toon accurate (or as close as you're likely to get), I'd definitely say switch those hands if they're spare.

    Maybe you could then make the clawed Outback into a new character... :)

    I saw the upgrade set that had his face on Reprolabels, but didn't think that it made that much of a difference... Boy was I wrong, this looks way better than the original figure!

    As for the hands, I think that would probably help him look pretty slick too!

    That works well. It's not to my personal taste (I thought it looked like Brawn before the stickers and mods :p ), but it's certainly a better cartoon representation. To be honest, I'm surprised I hadn't seen anyone switch the hands before. Good thinking!
