    One of the first Brave shows (and I'm sure someone who's actually a Brave fan cant ell you more about this) reused a lot of the models from Transformers for its characters. This red Deszaras/Deathsaurus/whatever is one of them.

    It was made by Takara probably only a couple years after Victory, so the quality should be just as good as the TF version.

    Red Geist is from the third Brave series, Brave of Legend Da Garn in 1992. This was the only TF repainted for that line, but the following Brave lines would see several TF redecos (Sonic Bomber, Dai Atlas, Sixshot, Sky Garry).

    A couple of years ago, BBTS had him listed for around $500... I sent a note to Joel that it should be more like $50-$100 and the price got dropped to what you see now.

    It's a fantastic figure, but with a bit of shopping you should be able to net him for under $100.

    It should also be noted that he's missing one of his Breastmaster partners. (Eagle as I recall)

    That was one of the things keeping me from picking one up a few years back.
