Stock photos of the unreleased Generations GDO Voyager Brawn

Postby Sabrblade » Fri Jan 18, 2013 10:03 am

Recall how there was a Voyager Brawn figure originally solicited with the Hasbro Asia Generations GDO figures? Well, for whatever reason (possibly to do with the 2012 rerelease of Prime First Edition Voyager Bulkhead), the figure was never released in any market. As such, 78dm.net has posted official stock photography of the figure, both in (Hasbro U.S.) packaging and in its two modes, along with stock photos of other toys released at the time like GDO Voyager Hot Spot and Prime First Edition Starscream. What will become of this figure, if it will ever see the light of day, is ultimately unknown, but the pics have been mirrored beyond the space bridge.

Ok, the Brawn head is the most ridiculously misplaced retool since E-Hobby Overlord, but with a new head, that would make one kick-awesome roadbuster.

There was an e-HOBBY Overlord? :|

The botcon 2012 exclusive. Also called Gigatron, I think. To be honest, I don't know who's responsible for it. When I claim it's hasbro, people tell me e-hobby was behind it. If I say e-hobby, people tell me it was hasbro. It certainly looks like an e-hobby retool. Either way, it was ugly as sin.

It was neither. Fun Pub/TCC under Hasbro's license made it.

Who are these people saying it was e-HOBBY? Sure, e-HOBBY got to sell it on their site, but they didn't make it. Fun Pub/TCC did, just like they do for all BotCon toys since 2005.

Just random fans who apparently know even less about it than I do. I don't really care who's behind it. All that matters was that it was a really terrible, lazy retool.

I wouldn't say it was terrible (the mold itself is great) just odd (seeing as it was an homage to gigas the brain master and overlords tank mode)

Giga was a Godmaster.

The big thing about that figure was that it was a mostly Greek art inspired head on a Japanese inspired body, which is about as jarring as seeing a pirate's head on a knight's body. ;)

As for Brawn, I think he looks pretty good... from the chin up. :P
