    TANK MODE

    Looks good although the plastic feels a bit soft and cheap. Turrets turn but main cannon cannot move up or down. Secondary cannons can't either, only the third set can move in all directions. Tank rolls on 4 little wheels.

    TRANSFORMATION

    The most spectacular I've seen for a tank (too long to explain)... until it's time to attach the shoulders to the torso, which proved impossible. Had to put superglue in the hole to make them smaller. Very frustrating process, I can already see kids being disapointed. Once the fix is done, everything is fine. The automorph feature on it is that when you fold down the torso, the tank threads move upand the head folds up. Pretty cool and not obstrusive.

    ROBOT MODE

    Great little robot with blades/claws on the left arm and the tank's main cannon on the right one. Brawl is super poseable. Joints for : head, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, feet. Headsculpt is pretty cool too, the closest to anything G1 in that line so far. Actually, it looks more like something from Beast Machines. I love it.

    We'll see, this one was MOSC... Hard to know if it's from the real production or just an in-package sample.

    looks wicked, man. could you take a picture of him standing next to another easily recognizeable TF for comparison? it's been really bugging me about how big the movie toys are.
    thanks

    leader? thats the next size up from voyager right? idk if i want one that big, i won't have any room to put him lol i might have to settle with the deluxe, unless if word gets out that there's going to be a voyager sized one, then i'll wait for that one.

    Oops, i am not sure it's voyager or leader, but I remember the previous thread about massive TF movie toy code showed that there's another size for him along with op and meg. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I find that for the size, Brawl has a lot of moving parts. A bigger version would be awesome.

    Also, I find the type of plastic to be similar to the one used on Ultimate Battle Prime/Megatron. Doesn't feel like the plastic we had for Cybertron, Energon or Armada.

    wow, if anything rachet should be the deluxe and brawl should be the voyager, an ambulance that is bigger than a tank just doesn't seem right lol
