    Can't wait for Brawn to grace my shelf. All my legend size minibots need their buddy.

    Why is that the case? It's incredibly rare for weapons to transform in-place.

    I think the shield piece was going to be parts-formed anyway, so it was made into a weapon to explain it.
    Plus, no other recent Legends have weapons (aside from Gnaw), so this is unprecedented.

    If I do find him in the wild I'll definitely buy him and put the World Heavyweight Championship on him.

    Modern Transformers don't tend to partsform "just because". This toy was designed to have the shield piece.

    And if it really bothers you so much, just leave it off. The vehicle mode looks fine without it.

    This line is pretty G1-centric, so when did Brawn have a shield? That's why this seems so off to me.
    Not that it's a deal-breaker, as I'll still probably get the figure.

    Since when were 75% of these characters Headmasters? The line isn't slavishly G1 accurate. They deviate as they feel like.

    So basically pretender brawn? Actually quite like the idea that brawn can shed his normal body if it gets too damaged, then steal other bodies to continue fighting.

    Now we just need someone to try and cram this into Cloud Brawn to make Ultimate Brawn.

    I've been happy with igear's Hench, but I'll definitely also be picking this up. Not sure how I'll allocate my display, but I'm looking forward to finding out. He probably will get TM Brawn's weapon-mode to hold, though.

    I do like that this Brawn has a port in the alt mode roof/bot back, It'll be good for the TM Brawn weapon as a turret

    Question: is that a port in the "spare tire" as well?

    Painted as Brawn.

    So far Brawn's the best Legend of 2017. I'd love to see a surprise figure top him though.

    But seriously, transformation was so simple I went "huh, that's it?"
    Not that it's a really bad thing since everything tabs so well together (unlike wheelie).

    Brawn having a ridiculously oversized for his stature gun is perfect. That the colors from TM Brawn match so well is even more perfect.

    How much bigger is TR headmaster umm head compared to TR deluxe brawn's head?

    Can we replace the tiny head with a bigger one? I want this guy to be even better and look stumpy.
