    Every time I see Brawl I flip-flop on whether I think it looks great or it looks kind of awkward and underwhelming
    This robot mode image REAAALY isn’t helping it. Hopefully seeing some in hand pics of it properly transformed will make it look decent again.

    *notices the coins* ok... that’s just sad

    They look like nickels, no ridges along the edge.

    Brawl’s new motto: “If I had ten cents for every time I had trouble standing up, I’d be a rich Decepticon”.

    Text on package: “Nickles not included”.

    I like Octopunch's bright color-scheme; it's so late 80's! :D  I wonder if his Trident mode would fit in my BBTS Re-Issue Piranacon's fist? His colors seem like a good match, & they'd mesh thematically.

    I only wish that his G1 monster-face had been incorporated somehow. Maybe a 3P or 3-D Printer can make a face part to replace the Prime Master symbol?

    And there I stand and thought the next step that Hasbros product shots take is display the figure backwards and call it the front. But this is probably as good as what I thought.

    On the figure itself. Not bad but there is some room for improvement, like making his arm-mounted weapons build into his arms like the Leader-class version did.

    shame that brawl looks to be just average in robot mode.
    those coins make me afraid that he won't be able to stand up on his own without falling over.

    tank mode looks good though.

    if there is 1 toy that realy needs a review before getting,it is brawl.

    I get that Bludgeon’s supposed to be a tank and all, but I can’t help but feel that they should have gone with a samurai sword over a blaster.

    It’s ment to be one of those blunt metal sticks with spikes I think. If it was made in a dark grey plastic or painted like the art you’d notice more.

    Reprolabels needs to seize this opportunity and make a true holographic sticker for Octopunch, with a strong 3D effect like the Visionaries had.

    Anyone else feel like Quintus should have been Octopunch and Solus should have been Bludgeon? Solus uses a hammer that can "bludgeon", and Quintus being the progenitor of squid people should be an octopus.

    All I want is a photo of Brawl where he isn't mistransformed, is that so much to ask???

    Also yeah considering that his arms form most of the turret, and that in all of the photos he's been in it's been facing completely forward, I don't think that main turret is going to rotate at all.

    Is Brawl's transformation really just that difficult to get a figure that looks good? He really doesn't look great in either robot or alt mode.

    I am starting to think that the tank turret is locked in place and won´t swivel.

    Hello at last Octopunch! If I only get one of these it's going to be he--er? It's actually Solus Prime in there so

    Megatron is probably the only SS figure I will end up getting now, depending on how Lockdown turns out.
    I decided against Blackout because nothing about it looks good to me, and was considering Brawl because I like tank-formers. These pics make it another official PASS for me. The Leader destroys this version in nearly every way.
    Megatron still looks good, despite all the complaints about a lack of paint. I happen to like the metallic gray plastic that's being used, so I will look forward to getting Megatron.

    I honestly don't give a crud about the Primes (stupid concept), but I do like the shells a lot. All three of these look cool.

    I’m very concerned for Studio Series Brawl. Beyond the nice film-accuracy the figure’s deco is pretty boring and those dimes make me question his stability. Really hope he doesn’t disappoint in the end, I loved the Deluxe Brawl as a kid and I want this one to relive some of my childhood.

    Also I think the joke for Bludgeon here is that he transforms into an actual bludgeoning weapon.

    For everyone freaking out about the coins, they always use those for stock photography. They just usually edit them out.

    I'm pretty damn excited for Megatron, but I think Brawl looks great, too.
