    Head seems very human----more like Man-At-Arms than Brawn.

    I kinda of agree. The face and the legs look off. It looks like Bad Cube borrowed the leg design off of Cubex Huffer for this figure, which doesn't really work for Brawn.

    Took a gander at Brawn's G1 look and I've figured out what it is wrong with the head on this figure. It isn't wide enough. Take a look at this picture and you'll see what I'm talking about:

    The Bad Cube version looks like he's wearing a bowl on his head. Looks odd. Also, the front of the vehicle behind his head doesn't stand up tall enough.

    Yup digging this. Add Xtb Beachcomber to the mix and we sorely need a MP style Windcharger!

    This definitely seems like a step up from Hench in terms of an MP-style aesthetic, to me the lower legs are a little too chunky, making it look very stumpy, they need to be thinned a bit.

    Also the alt-mode land rover used while I like it, i'd have apreference for the headlights to be out on the front of the wing (that's probably not the correct term)

    Intriguing, but I'm not sure about making his alt mode obviously a Land Rover. Not sure what his alt mode really was - maybe a bit ambiguous or chibified, but I'm fairly sure not a Land Rover. More like Land Cruiser (or something else Japanese) surely? I'd rather a made up G1 looking alt mode than a forced/incorrect realistic alt mode. Does look cool though.

    The figure has possibilities. Definitely a step up from Hench. If they can fix the head sculpt, legs, and raise the front of the vehicle so it comes up higher than the head, I think Bad Cube will have a winner with this guy. Very cool that we have a shot at another MP style minibot.

    Definite possibilities, but if they've got the prototype made already I doubt there's too much they can change unless they go for a complete over haul of the project?

    Kapow stated that these were early images of the upcoming product. So, Bad Cube may already be at work on a redesign. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

    Exactly, what I was thinking.
    And the legs would look nicer if they be slimmed down a bit.

    Still, looks pretty good.

    Not a good Brawn design but I'm a sucker for season 1 so will buy regardless. Damn my addiction.

    Re Hench: igear's looks slightly better but he's classis while this is a great size for MP-10 scale.
