    It needs a big mustache and a silk scarf to go with the helmet.

    Will buy, ......if it gets released in the UK.

    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.

    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?

    The Fallen with face-giving action = WIN.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    I really want the fallen but c'mon - blue? Please let Takara repaint him. I would make him my first import.

    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.

    An articulated neck and removable mask? Well, blue or not, consider me sold on the Fallen! :D 

    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.

    Highbrow doesn't look too bad. He could be a Movieverse Voyager Springer.

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

    That's no battle mask. They're... aviator goggles! :drool: 

    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!
