At almost 3" long, Spychanger X-Brawn rocks just as much as his deluxe toy. A lot of attention to detail was given to this toy as it's a very faithful scaled-down version of the original, right down to the painted-over round headlights.
X-Brawn, Transform! Pull to extend the legs, open the doors as far as they will open, bring the hood section down and around and unfold the left arm. Voila!
In robot mode, X-Brawn looks fantastic. He's true and faithful to his larger counterpart. there's even an Autobot logo on the underside of his hood section. And thanks to his transformation design, he's the most articulated of the Spychangers, with both shoulders and elbows being able to move. I keep wanting to bend him at the hips and turn his head, but that won't work without busting the toy.
He is, by far, the most impressive of the new Spychangers. Scourge is almost too faithful to the original design. Sadly, like Prime and Magnus, not all his wheels are functional, but
when you're dealing with the RiD Decepticons number one bad-guy, does it matter? He measures in at 2 1/2" long, 1 1/16" wide and 1 1/8" high.
Transforming Scourge is a treat since it is almost like transforming Laser Prime/Battle Convoy. Extend the rear section, split the engine block in half, stand, and flip the
robot head up.
He's a definite Mini-Me to Scourge. He's the most faithful in likeness compared to the others and still manages to look bad ass even at 2 3/4" high. His only articulation resides in his elbows, but that's enough for Scourge to take out any Spychanger with his barrage attack.
Overall, if you only have $5.00 and see all the new Spychangers, get the Scourge/X-Brawn set. Both toys are amazing for their size.
