New Voyager Fallen and Highbrow Images, Highbrow has Battlemask

KOToys has posted a gallery of the upcoming Transformers Voyager Class Highbrow. This all-new Autobot has a World War II bomber mode, and these new images reveal that true to his Biggles-inspired robot mode, he features a flip down battlemask to emulate a pilot putting on flight goggles.

Also posted on KOToys are images of The Fallen with the new spear accessory and the removable face mask. These images show Fallen both with and without the facemask, so you get a nice look at The Fallen after he has "given Optimus Prime his face".

Check out our mirror of all the images by clicking on the title of this story.

Looks pretty cool, I'm wondering what the repaints colors will be...
Auto Morph
Still can't make my mind up on him. Nearly everything about him is awesome, just those propeller engine wrists really bother me...
The_Black_Sheep
They nailed that altmode! Luv it! The placement of the propellers in botmode is quite unique but there's something about his head - It kinda reminds me of Iron Man...
exclusacon
Bought....gotta love planes...plus the battle mask....
Opticron Primal
Wow, so the aviator goggles become goggles? That's pretty surprising. Thought it would only be a design choice.
MekaGojira3k
haha! I love it! Should I have the extra cash on hand, I'm totally getting HIghbrow!
ORIO
Damn! Beat me to it Sol

There's some new pics of The Blue Fallen too.

I really want to like Highbrow, but I don't like his head
Kraken
Aww, I'm actually quite disappointed in his head sculpt now, the Bot-Con pics made it look like he was sporting a cocky smirk, now we can see it's just a breathing mask thing. Shame. Apart from that small disappointment, I still think Highbrow is f-ing awesome, can't wait to get my hands on him.

EDIT: Just realised, with his mask down, it looks like he's got bunny teeth. I'm not sure if that's awesome or not...
Toxicon
Man this guy looks so freaking cool. Love the battle mask. Definitely gonna make it a point to pick him up.
Thundershot
His head looks very... Beast Machinesy. If he was blue I'd probably add him to my CHUG shelves. I might still get him anyway to put on my "random transformers that I think are cool" desk.
ThaConqueror
I wish I what makes his design "Biggles inspired" and what the hell Biggles is. Either way, I want Highbrow. Sort of...NOW-ish.
ckhtiger
speaking of repaints for this guy, does anyone think that voyager seaspray will get a repaint? I already made a seaspray custom out of cybertron shortround, and so I don't need a hovercraft in his colors but I really like that new design.
YoungPrime
Meh, I have enough Bayformer cannon fodder on the horizon so I think I'll pass on this one.
plowking
Love this one.
MrTuesday
Too bad he's a voyager. He'd look good next to ROTF Ransack or Divebomb.

Biggles was a fictional WWII fighter pilot, famous for his flying goggles and scarf, as well as some jolly spiffing adventures, what!

Biggles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
tabtiurf
I'm really digging this guy. Love me some bots with personality!

Still no faction symbol visible on him. That's weird.

I'm guessing he's an autobot, thus posing me a dilema; Do I buy this version or wait for a possible decepticon repaint?
Anti Spark
He will go excellent with Lugnut.
Scorpion
I love the alt. mode, but I think that head is hideous. I picture his voice sounding like Mort Goldman from Family Guy with a Southern drawl.
Metalhead
It needs a big mustache and a silk scarf to go with the helmet.

Will buy, ......if it gets released in the UK.
baggzey23
screw the purple im taking that face with me (and the lugnut fallen)

I see that. His head reminds me of B'Boom. I think...

I know there is a BW/BM figure that has a head that looks just like that dude.
Shadow25
Yuck, I love the new head(s) on the Fallen, as well as the staff, but a completely non-movie accurate color scheme does nothing for me. Why is it the only accurately colored Fallen we've gotten is the Legends?

Agreed. But I can't help but love that "gimme your face" action
Squints
The Fallen with face-giving action = WIN.
ServO
I think Highbrow looks ok enough to warrant a purchase down the road, but when I look at those pics of the Fallen all I see is a mess of purple and blue. No thanks.
WarConvoy
Its So Cool!
I wish Hasbro would make more 1940's Stile Transformers.
I loved DW's Transformers GI Joe series that was based around the 1940's and I loved the designs of the transformers in the series.
Thenames9
Highbrow looks like absolute SHIT. I honestly can't see anything good with this bar the vehicle mode. The Fallen looks aboslutely awesome, love the blue and the staff
TranstechCat
I would be excited for the new Fallen, but those colors...

I still don't get it. Why go through the trouble of making a more accurate head (with removable face), hands, staff, etc. and then paint him those weird shades of blue?

All they had to do was make his colors screen accurate and he would've been PERFECT.

Hell, I would've even taken the "Blazing" version's black/orange... but blue/purple?

Maybe there will be a more accurately colored release later? Hopefully not a store exclusive or some multi-pack either, but a single mass release. I'm tired of having to rush to a particular store or be forced to buy a bunch of toys I don't want to get the version they should've done in the first place.
MrAho
GIVE ME YOUR FACE.
Pure genius
Shizuka
I really want the fallen but c'mon - blue? Please let Takara repaint him. I would make him my first import.
grimlock1972
The blueberry flavored fallen is a pass but Highbrow is a buy, just wish we could get a confirmation if he is a bot or Con beyond his name.
shroobmaster
I'm laughing so god damn hard at the fallen pics.

WHy would anyone buy a bunch of cavemen just to take those pics sdhshds

Oh well, I'm buying both.
jestermon
I think the face makes them look kind of like the old Foot Soldiers toys from Tenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The plane looks neat, the mask reminds me of this File:Splatter Mask (WWI).jpg - Wikimedia Commons
LoC Soundwave
An articulated neck and removable mask? Well, blue or not, consider me sold on the Fallen!

Not quite liking Highbrows robot mode. The forearms and head just doesn't work for me. I might just pick him up for the gorgeous alt-mode.
brawl 56
Okay.
Now I want Highbrow... he looks like Abraham Sapien with his battlemask
Chopperface
Highbrow doesn't look too bad. He could be a Movieverse Voyager Springer.

at The Fallen. The guys at Hasbro DEFINETLY were grinning. First he's in TFA Lugnut colors, now Prime can rip his face off!

To close out this post:

"GIVE ME YOUR FACE!!!"
General Magnus
Uh.. Thatīs a P-38 fighter from WWII. Not a bomber.
Gammatron 64
That's no battle mask. They're... aviator goggles!

Highbrow is such a cool friggin' idea. I love it that Hasbro is making all these retro 'bots... Hubcap, Ransack, now Highbrow. Really, some of the coolest figures in G2 were Ransack and the Laser Rods. I was getting bored with years and years of just sports cars and fighter jets, so I am totally loving Hasbro being really creative with their altmodes.

Yeah yeah, sure, kids may not want to buy things like WII Fighter Planes, Dump Trucks and Forklifts, but I sure as hell do! Keep 'em coming!
Rogzilla
1-Hasbro really has no excuse at this point to NOT give the next Leader Prime a retractible face mask.

2-I really like the new mold for the Fallen. I remember Hasbro saying at Botcon that he was going to be darker in his wide release. If it does turn out to be this purple/blue color I'll probably still pick it up but I would prefer a darker color.

come on takara you know what to do with the fallen

was wondering what i could rename this guy as cause highbrow just doesnt fit that name for me. he shall now be biggles

YouTube - Monty Python - Biggles (with random "Lemon Curry?")
blackout501st
hasbro should make more WW2 era transformers! they turn out awesome!
Optimus Prime
Highbrow is an insta-buy. Both modes look great, and he'll be a great rival for Lugnut. Fallen is a really good remold, but I think I'll hold out for one in a more accurate deco. That would be perfect (either as a Takara release or some kind of exclusive).
Mechafire
Want. The battle mask is so freaking cool.
Prime_Directive
I want Highbrow now.

Also, Smurfallen is too hilarious not to buy.

If we get Smurfallen we also need a Gargamel Prime.
Fort Max
Highbrow is a fantastic figure, he will be aces high battling Lugnut I'm sure.
