I acquired a one (for SIGNIFICANTLY less than $50) and was pretty happy with it. Deluxe is my favorite size, and it takes a lot for me to like a Leader Class mold.
Larger robots have to be pretty cool, or made up of five magical robot space lions, or something.
But Brawl? He would’ve been worth $50 (though at some place other than K-mart. It’s the principle of the thing.) I collect mostly deluxe scale figures, so his size makes him pretty close to scale, he’s bristling with guns and pointy bits (He’s got sharp combs of doom on his boobs! His shins have swords!), and even though he stands like a fat guy (knees in, ankles out) he’s very nicely articulated.
His kibble is a bit restrictive, but honestly I can see that as a guy who loaded himself down with too much weapons and armor. He’s also got electronics that fire if you so much as look at them, but I just pretend it’s Brawl being angry because you looked at him.
Deep Desert Brawl is also the only Leader Class transformer to suffer the dreaded Allspark Blue.
But… I like it.
Yes. I like Allspark Blue. I like the clear blue plastic on his missile launchers, the splotches of blue on his shins (next to his swords!), and that same clear sapphire they used for his pretty pretty lightpiping.
So, now that we’ve got that out of the way, you’re probably wanting me to get to the point of the title of this post.
Silly reader, this is a MattBooker.info guide, so I’ll get around to that by Day 3 or so.
Okay, so I’ve got a couple of things to do to improve Brawl, but bearing in mind all the other stuff I’ve got going on at the moment (book writing, upcoming wedding) I’m going to forgo the usual guidestravaganza and give you a couple of one page guides.
That means no dick in the box jokes. But really, should a running gag be a marathon or a sprint? Or am I suffering from the Marvel \ DC problem (But the new readers, how will they know?!)?
I’ve even tied up Deadpool, and Brawl’s not exactly talkative.
So, my apologies, dear readers, but I wanted to give you something to prove I haven’t forgot about all you transformers fans. And, if you’ve got any version of Leader Brawl, you’ll want to stick around and see the improvements.
(Also, if it turns out that some of you prefer this more straightforward guide approach, don’t worry! I’ll be back to bothering you when it’s not so busy. :D)
