    that is not the pic of OS KO, but hasbro SDCC exclusive brainstorm.

    As with the trend with other wei jiang headmasters, ETA is not something that we can pinpoint accurately other than "eventually"

    Received my Brainstorm today from tf-direct. He is pretty awesome. Good heft. I like the diecast feet and waist. Something I didn’t see mentioned his hips are different compared to Hasbro blur. They are detented pins universals vs ball joints. He has some nasty nub marks though.

    Clear orange paint arrives tomorrow. I should have pictures up on the weekend.

    That's not the KO, but the original Hasbro version. The KO has got blue eyes.

    Nope. Chromedome is correct. Go back to page 30 of this thread, post # 597. Have a look at their product codes, specifically the last letter of their codes. A through D have been released exactly in alphabetical order so far, therefore Chromedome is next in line to get released.

    J8058A: Skullcruncher
    J8058B: Hardhead
    C: Brainstorm
    D: Highbrow
    E: Chromedome
    F: Mindwipe
    G,H,I,J: ???
    K: Weirdwolf

    actually, their release doesn't follow that exact order. Case in point, highbrow actually released before brainstorm, despite brainstorm teased to be released together with the first two.

    Brainstorm went up for pre-order before Highbrow. I think something on Brainstorm needed reworked hence, Highbrow releasing first.

    in that case, i think weirdwolf would still come out next, considering he was displayed on the first teaser, means among all that has not released yet, his mold is the one that is most ready to be released.

    Here are some more comparison pics of Brainstorm, with the Takara Legends (Voyager) and Legends (Deluxe) class figures.

    Some question:

    Does the head still can be mix-matched?

    What are the improvement of each figure? (For example: Skullcruncher's armflap and folding hind legs, etc).

    Love my Skullcruncher, and I plan to buy the green tank (forgot the name), but is its head changeable? Also, anyone has a pic of that green tank's head with skull's body?

    And, what's the improvement on tank's mold?

    all the wei jiang headmaster is interchangeable with each other, as they don't change the port and the headmaster head mold.

    As for improvement, aside from some diecast here and there, this is what i know:
    Hardhead- arm flap
    Highbrow- folding rotor, folding back fin
    Brainstorm- extra gun
    Also all of them has the hip balljoint replaced by hinge and swivel articulation.

    they're not fully interchangeable.
    champsosaurs' head deformer can't fit in diehard's tank mode.

    but what about when both is in robot mode? Can both be a head for the other's body? I believe that is what cybeast want to know.
