    I wouldn't say exceptionally. That still seems a normal amount of chunky, particularly if you see that as older version of laptop.

    A battle damaged version would absolutely need a shattered screen graphic printed on there. Maybe some scorch marks around where the power supply would be, too.

    Yeah those of us who had laptops when they first became more common remember the chunk :D  But really I don't see how they could do better than this at this scale. I'm very happy with laptop mode.

    Dr-wu is one of those companies that makes amazing stuff but I just never end up getting it due to other releases. They really knocked it out of the park with brains given the design and size of this!

    Really need to pick up something from them at some point.

    If we look at the movie alt mode at that time, it is exceptionally chunky.

    We could imagine it to be a ruggedised military laptop. Then a black one would make a lot of sense

    Yeah this version looks to be a bit more accurate to the Brains character from the film...

    I'm liking this version, although strictly speaking I think the first version revealed was more accurate to the character, whose cyan (where it exists) is actually pretty saturated. Plus, the hair is white instead of being light blue:

    I think this version would pair really nicely with Wheelie, though, since they're both that same shade of blue.

    I scanned the thread looking for the laptop dimensions. Does anyone know if he'd scale with 6 inch scale action figures?

    None of us know for sure, but my guess based on their previous releases is that yeah it wouldn't look too bad. I'm guessing the laptop mode is like 2in wide tops.

    I dunno, I think based on the thickness and the amount of mass being comparable to Wheelie, he’ll probably be a large laptop more suitable to 12 inch or 1/6 scale figures, or perhaps something in between the more I look at him.

    Oh shoot my bad for some reason I read 1/6th scale figures, not 6” figures. Definitely too big for 6”

    I never got the Wheelie. It would be great if someone sold the two of them together...

    Damn, I cannot decide which version I acutally prefer.

    I went throught a compilation of Brain scenes on Youtube.


    I think MC04 is closer to the colours of the DOTM modell, while the MC04B is closer to the AOE model (except for the "hair", which should be the same colour as on MC04).

    I think I will go with MC04, cause of the stronger colour contrast when you stand it next to the Wheelie figure.
