Series: Movie Decepticon Brawl is proud to be a big, mean destruction-dealing machine. He's a one-robot wrecking crew, a mobile mass of mayhem, and a serious problem for Autobots and humans alike. His armored skin is thick enough to shrug off almost anything short of a point-blank blast from a fusion cannon, and his built-in weapon systems are more than adequate to bring down even the thoughest enemy. He lives for the thudding roar of his shells bursting among a cluster of enemies and the shrill crackle of his lasers cutting through the armor of an Autobot warrior. He is a fighter through and through, bored and moody during standby cycles, but happy as can be as he rolls into battle.
Brawl, who was mistakenly called Devastator in the movie, is egotism personified. He wants to slaughter everyone, no matter if they're friend or foe; both are welcome to enter his weapons range. His heavily armed, bulky exterior gives Brawl a truly frightening air, which is mirrored in the eyes of the soldiers he faced in the movie. Even the Autobots, outnumbering him four(!) to one, needed two tries and lots of shots to take this monster down.
Brawl's alternate mode is a modified M1A2 Abrahms tank, equipped with a second turret that sports a twin cannon, two 4-shot missile launchers, and a double-barreled 15mm rapid fire cannon. Brawl is also equipped with two mine-sweeping combs up front, as well as antipersonal and anti-mine equipment. The tank is done with lots of detailing and a nice colour scheme. The only thing that bugs me is that you can see Brawl's robot mode head in this tank mode.
The robot mode shows Brawl's true self: A walking armoury. Two 4-shot missile launchers, two ?????, a mini gun, one 4-barreled 25mm cannon, a double-edged blade, a heavy 30mm cannon, two leg-mounted blades, six clawed fingers, all wrapped up in heavy armour. Brawl is probably the wet dream of several US Army generals.
A monster such as this would probably be unstoppable, especially considering how quickly he darted across the screen. Brawl can also do poses. It's not his strength, as he's quite bulky, but he does manage several poses, preferably with his big gun out front! No complaints about the engineering side, either. Nothing rattles, nothing's stuck.
