    I'm not sure how you could even attempt to understand what that post was getting at.

    Brainstorm is a good mold and congrats that want a Headmasters likeness but I just don't think it works. And I have to admit I'm pretty much in love with the straight up toy deco of the Walgreens version.

    I like the blue of the SDCC, but the overall deco of the single release with the wing stickers looks the best to me.

    I'll be pre-ordering the Takara when it goes up, because that's where I'm at.

    Well, technically Jinrai is right and "Ginrai" is the misspelling, except that Takara has been misspelling it for 30 years now. But this is a good heads up to people to check both spellings in their searches.

    Your explanation was that you said you didn't know what the character was supposed to look like. So...yeah.

    I really like the Headmasters cartoon but I think I prefer the G1 toy colors of the Walgreens Brainstorm. But I would love to have the Legends Brainstorm head.

    I don't like the Hasbro Brainstorm headmaster... too IDW for my tastes...

    Only the head is IDW.

    And the IDW head is based directly on the G1 cartoon.

    While I would have preferred a new rifle for Soundwave, glad they at least did the silver barrel.

    Still pondering if I should hunt down a Hasbro Brainstorm though, TT's looks nice, represents the 'toon appearance, and I have the voyager version.

    Its similar, but its not the same. I'm talking more G1 toy than toon.

    I've never watched the Japanese Headmasters cartoons so Takara's Brainstorm being decked out in BLACK trim kinda BLOWS MY MIND.

    Never mind. I'll leave the maskless face here, though.

    t's funny, iv'e seen the maskless face plenty (though i still find it a tad disconcerting) but i'd never noticed the black/very dark trim/wings before, which look really odd on the Legends deco too me.

    No, I said I didn't _care_ what he was supposed to look like just whether or not the toy looked good IMHO. To wit it doesn't IMHO and I've also said why that is.

    SDCC edges it for me with the ab-paint and the silver detailing. I hope I can find one at TF Nation, though the rest of that pack will go on Ebay...

    These look great, they are really killing it with this line like back in the Henkei days. I wonder if they will come up with anything for Getaway.

    I have the generations Brainstorm that I'm super happy with but for completist sake I think I will grab this brainstorm just to have all four. But I think I'm going to go Hasbro for Highbrow everyone else Tarkara
