    Definitely looking forward to this guy.

    As an interesting bit of trivia, he seems to be based on Don Figueroa's design of Manterror's Cybertronian body for the "Beast Wars: The Gathering" comic.

    I wasn't at all interested in this guy till I saw your review. I guess I'll probably be picking him up

    This is just a fantastic review.

    Not sold on the toy, however.

    This guy is one of the ones I'm looking forward to for the summer season. I have a little fan-faction made of tough guy Decepticons, such as RiD Scourge, ROTF Lockdown, and a bunch of motorcycles, this guy's definitely joining them.

    It's cool to see that it's still possible to make cool motorcycle Transformers.

    Peaugh, do his arms peg into the shoulders pretty securely so that the arms move okay?

    Also, please stop apologizing for showing off how the figures roll. I for one like to know that the wheels work. :thumbs2:

    Love the design. Hasbro has been on a roll with their Cycle-bots lately... except, y'know, for Arcee and gals- but that was ILM not them. Great review!

    Yeah, they peg in pretty tightly. They'll pop off if you really yank on the arms, but they stay in place quite well for playing/posing.

    I'm planning to repaint him into Manterror's or Mantis' colors myself. Though, seeing how many times (3!) Hasbro repainted the other motorcycle mold from ROTF, we can expect a lot more variations of this guy.

    For some reason the whole body and especially the head reminds me of Skull Man from the old Mega Man games.

    This guy in Manterror's colors would be excellent! :rock 


    Brimstone himself looks awesome, I'm definitely looking forward to getting one.

    Nice. Can't say I ever imagined a chopper-style Transformer, but now I'll be happy to have one. :p
