    I contemplated Starscream, but seeing how the nullrays mount, and the overall look of them makes me say ehhh, standard voyager price I'd buy it. Brawn was an automatic when I first saw him displayed for the GDO line. I don't collect Prime so for me its not a repeat mold

    Nobody has asked if Starscreams shoulders stay pegged in place? Ok then I'll ask.

    Do Starscreams shoulders stay pegged in place in robot mode?

    Urgh, Bulkheads alt mode might suit Brawn but the body certainly does not.

    Really not bad at all. Brawn's head still looks a bit out of place on that body to me, but less so than it did when images first appeared. And his coloring looks nice; I like the silver arms, and as someone mentioned that is a really nice green. And the colors look nice on Starscream as well.

    I still wish this line were about $30 less per figure. It would be a no-brainer for me then to get them. As it is, I'm still waffling.

    Given the personality of Brawn as a 'tuff', I think the build works, he has a goonish quality.

    Yeah, me too. I heart that deco so much but I can't even come close to justifying that price. Needs to be at least $50 less for me.

    I think that Starscream really works. Can't budget the $100 right now, but it is on my list.

    Shame these things are so expensive or I'd buy a few, but for $100 I'd rather buy the I gear raptor or another 3rd party toy

    So,...why is it that Cloud figures are so much more expensive than their repainted/remolded equivalents?

    So did they finally fix those shoulders those pictures seem to suggest that.

    Starscream really worked well with the mold, Brawn though..never been a fan of this retool since they suggested this back for the GDO line and I still don't care for it.

    For anyone wondering, I have the Cloud Starscream in hand. The shoulder problem is NOT fixed, it probably never will be. I did have to shave it down, just like the Blitzwing. Also the plastic is as good as the Blitzwing's was. I was impressed with the figure, better in hand, then the pictures suggested. As for the price, well that's up to you.

    Starscream turned out well. He looks great.

    Brawn looks hilarious with his tiny head.

    Starscream works surprisingly well, like the Rodimus repaint of Springer. I just wish these had a lower price. I'd bite at $50, but not $100.
