    Wow, that looks MUCH better, but I'm waiting for reviews before I even consider getting him.

    I was skeptical at first but after that picture I am 100% in. The paint apps on the torso really breaks up the yellow. Can't wait for more pics/info.

    Yeah, this is a sure buy. I wish the legs were a little longer somehow but I can live with it. Maybe somebody will make a 'platform shoes' add-on like MP Grimlock. I was pleased with Huff (mine had no major QC issues) so I'm looking forward to this.

    Are they going to make Swerve and Beachcomber too? *fingers crossed*

    I realize these aren't final paint apps, but the gray on the sides of his face are bothering me.

    I'd take a 2-pack with an improved Huff.

    But hardly anyone cares about Outback, and the market will be flooded with him. I'd be lucky to sell him for $40 profit, meaning Brawn costs $140 if bundled with Outback.

    They have already confirmed you will be able to buy Brawn outside of the two pack. However, preordering the two pack will give you "extras" you won't get otherwise.

    I think I will wait for reviews. $180 seems pretty steep in my book for two smallish MP's who's previous release had horrible QC problems.

    When might we find out what the extra accessories are? More people who are currently on the fence might go ahead and pre-order the 2pack once that information is disclosed. The secrecy seems pointless to me.

    i agree. at that price point they will hang around awhile.

    at this point I'm just looking for one company to do all the minibots in a quality coherent fashion preferable in scale with masterpiece, but at least in scale with each other.

    igear had the opportunity and screwed it up by changing scales and not doing the right colors patterns…

    these guys look nice, but huff was a mess and now they want TOP dollar for tiny "MPs".

    The more I see Brawn the higher he climbs on my want list. While the price does seem a bit high I'm going to wait for reviews to see if the quality and engineering justifies the price IMO.

    They hinted at the addons on their Facebook page. Basically, from the images they showed from the cartoon, it'll be weapons/hand attachments that were one-offs in the series. While "a weapon" and a drill (for the front of Brawn's vehicle mode) will be included whether you preordered the two pack or just bought Brawn.

    Given this little montage they put on FB, I'm guessing a bazooka, Quintesson journal, welding attachment for Brawny's arm and bomb.
