    Just a short touch and go review. I got him last week at the local TRU. First and foremost, he is really huge. He actually towers over Megatron if you take his turrets into consideration.

    [​IMG]

    First up the bot mode, which he is packed in. For those of you who had Deluxe Class Brawl, you will be grateful that Hasbro decided to release the leader class version. The dreaded arm peg issue is no longer there and it is substituted with a proper shoulder joint which are all ratcheted. Being a leader class himself, he gets all the benefits of extra articulation and range of movements. And he has weapons sticking out from him. True that, he is a walking swiss (literally) army knife.

    [​IMG]

    That is the first thing that I am thankful for. The details are great compared and need I say this, TONS better than Megatron. The articulation and molding of this toy puts Megatron to shame and if Hasbro decides to keep up this level of quality for it's future leader class, I might as well skip all the deluxe versions and stick with the leader class.

    The tanks mode is great and it blows all sorts of tankformers out of the water. The only irritating thing I am having a beef with the toy is that the sound/gimmick button is located at the very top of the twin turret and you WILL accidentally press the damn buttons when you are transforming him. I really got miffed and removed the battery from the toy.

    Anyway, here is my score (based on my experience of owning a deluxe Brawl and comparing him to Leader Class Megatron)

    [​IMG]

    Robot Mode:- 8/10 Superb. Very articulated and detailed.
    Tank Mode:- 9.5/10 Best tank transformer to date
    Transformation:- 9/10 very satisfying and you don't feel cheated like how I felt when I bought Leader Class Megatron
    Overall:- 9/10 Very competent Leader class transformer, you can't go wrong.

    Sorry, no thank mode pics. I got lazy.

    This has been reviewed in Cybertron.ca by Megatroptimus, but not here. So I don't know if it'll be closed.

    Awesome review though! :thumb

    OMFG I am just beyond eager for his release. Definitely my most anticipated figure of the entire line. Everything I see from/hear about him gets me hyped.

    Yeah... I take back all the 'upsized deluxe' crap I said when it was first shown... It looks way better... But I'll have to get the recolor to justify the purchase...

    Does he have a swivel joint in the knees anywhere, or are they stuck in that position other than forward/back knee movement?

    You gots Leader Class Brawl, yay you! :D 

    Scalpers got to him first in all my usual toy hunting spots, boo me! :( 

    He indeed looks very awesome, but I think I'll wait for 2008 for the Desert Attack version. (Actually, anyone have any idea approximately when the "Allspark power" line of repaints will be released?

    I'm hoping (and it seems fairly safe to assume) they'll be around for the holidays.

    Nope, he can pull of alot of poses. His knees can swivel back and forth and side to side. He can nearly pull off the Gundam pose if not for his big thread kibble at the back.

    No upsized deluxe crap here, this guy is a whole new world. Even the fingers are articulated.

    Yah, yah....I will get some "thank" mode pics later today..:D 

    Err..here goes:-

    1) Thew...thew!
    2) EEEOOOOooooooo....boom!
    3) Rata-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta!!
    4) Boom!

    That about just sums up the noises he can make. But beware, the placement of the sound gimmick button is so haphazardly accessible, (on top of the 2 turrets) you will be pressing it accidentally many many many times when you transform him.

    I waited out TRU after receiving some "info" of upcoming shipment schedule. My patience paid off. I snagged Leader Class Brawl and Deluxe Longarm and Payload. :D

    wow.. I don't really like this figure. I know it's only a little bit different from Deluexe.. but yeah. I'll only pick him up if he's on sale.I really hate that huge cannon sticking out. They honestly should've made it shrink or something.
