A few online stores got the upcoming Walgreens exclusive Titans Return Brainstorm in early – we got one, and we’re now sharing a full-scale gallery of the Autobot scientist with you!
A Deluxe class figure, Brainstorm is a remold of Titans Return Blurr, but he does enough with the design to get his own identity. Robot mode is on-point for the look of the Generation 1 toy, while the vehicle mode does miss the mark slightly, being a bit too sleek and elongated due to being a Blurr remold. Two things that particularly bothered me on the design were the way the guns on the nose of the jet no longer become Brainstorm’s handguns – a sacrifice to keep the parts count down – and also how the canopy does not completely enclose the cockpit. Minor quibbles, but they throw off some of the look and enjoyment of the toy for me. The robot mode does have a decent amount of poseability though, and Brainstorm can strike some good poses, so no complaints there.
By making Brainstorm an exclusive, he’ll be a bit harder to track down, but we’d say he’ll be worth it to have all of the Headmasters together in the same aesthetic and scale. Check out his gallery after the break to see for yourself.
