    First I'll say that Brawn was always my favourite character from G1 and I just had to build a MP for him. This one will be built from an Alt Jazz and the core is Alt Prowl.
    Although Brawn was a Land Rover Defender, I was unable to find a kit so I used the closest thing I could find which would be a Jeep TJ. I'll be throwing some running boards on him as well as mounting the spare tire to the roof and a gas can on the end gate in an effort to make him look more Brawny.

    Last pic fixed.
    I'll be using the Sunstreaker head. After watching a couple old G1 episodes, I noticed Brawn had a rather blunt face which only this head featured. Also, it doesn't hurt that he's got those doggy ears hanging of his head. I'll just fill those smooth and add some more dome-age to it.
    The chest conceals nicely under the hood and a big ass skid plate forms the lower chest. he won't have any interior so I'll just tint the windows.
    Something I'm up in the air about is whether his topper windows should face forward (Pic 4) or should a d00d just panel up the other side to look more Cartoony?

    Looking good, I think the topper windows panelled up would look better.

    The transformation you worked out is fraking amazing! I like the idea you have for the head. I look forward to seeing the domed out 'streaker head.
    In case you were curious (and thanks for the suggestion everybody! :) ) Here is the Brawn head in action on a custom I am doing for Rick Coronel.
