Deluxe Brawl - Movie - Figure

It only makes sense that the majority of Decepticons prefer assuming alt modes of military hardware. The majority of Decepticons for the movie carry on this tradition. Brawl, who is filled with rage and bent on destruction, is an example.

Alt Mode

Brawl's alt mode is a military tank. The tank is done in forest camouflage color. The treads are molded, with 4 plastic wheels used for rolling action. The tank consists of a main barrel, plus 2 smaller barrels on top. There is also a pair of missile batteries on the backside. A Decepticon symbol appears behind the main barrel, albeit backwards.

There are 2 sets of turrets. The main barrel turret can swivel independently of the auxiliary barrel turret. Both turrets have full rotation capability. However, the barrels themselves can not be tilted, which is a shame. The missile batteries, however, have more more maneuverability.


Transformation involves lost of twists, but isn't overly difficult. His automorph feature is pretty cool. Folding the front end forward not only rotates the front treads in a halfmoon, but also pokes out his head.

Robot Mode

One look at his robot mode and you might wonder if this should have been Megatron. Gold accents appear on the legs, waist and shoulders. The main barrel becomes his arm cannon and a 2 pronged claw rests on his left wrist. Details are done nicely, including the head sculpt. The eyes have red piping.

Points of articulation are as follows. Feet: Stationary. Knees: screw joint, 90 degree vertical rotation. Hips: Ball joint, 60 degree horizontal and 135 degree vertical rotation. Shoulders: Ball joint, 180 degree horizontal and 90 degree vertical rotation. Elbows: Screw hinge, 90 degree vertical and unlimited horizontal rotation. Head: Ball joint, unlimited horizontal rotation. The footprint for this robot is extremely small. Leg movement is also slightly limited. Patience is needed, but he can strike some poses. Just note, at least on my figure, that the knees are stiff.

There is one major flaw in robot mode. The pins used to hold the arms to the torso doesn't lock in place very well. The arms have a tendency to sag. That's a pity, because so far this is turning out to be one of my favorites in this line.
