Series: Reveal the Shield
Allegiance: Autobot Categories: Deluxe Year: 2010
Fallback has never been particularly interested in following the rules. The fastest way between two points, after all, is a straight line. Given a destination, Fallback will gladly drive straight to it, smashing through or knocking over anything that gets in his way.
Remarks: Fallback here is a straight-up repaint of Revenge of the Fallen Brawn, so look for the full review there. Just some words on the differences. Given that G1 Brawn was repainted (and given a new face) into G1 Outback, it only made sense to repaint (sadly without a new head or anything) his ROTF successor into ... well, Fallback. I guess the Outback name was not available or couldn't be trademarked. Anyway, Fallback has gotten a makeover in Outback's beige and reddish-brown colors and... yeah, that's pretty much it. Still the exact same excellent figure from before, just with a different paintjob. Personally I like Brawn's colors a bit more, but that's entirely subjective, naturally. So bottom line: Brawn was definitely among the best Deluxe-class figures from Revenge of the Fallen and his repaint is just as good. So if you missed Brawn, Fallback is definitely worth a look. Only avoid him if you detest shell-formers.
