I got it ! Deep Desert Brawl is no other than Brawl from the movie line, AKA Devastator. This version is a leader class with extra bells and whistles. In its vehicle mode, it transforms into an M1 Abrams tank. A twist of the top turret or a light slide of the main cannon will trigger cannon sounds and light effects, provided by leds on the main cannon and on the two translucent blue machine guns on the top.
Transformation is complex at first, but very rewarding: gone are the arm defects on the Deluxe mode, and now the arms feature a sliding cannon on the right arm and a extending claw on the left arm. The poseability of the legs is hindered by the tank thread kibble, but that's it only weak point, everything else is perfect. The proportions are very movie accurate, the head and the light-piping look great, and the desert colours fit the model a lot better than the olive-green of previous incarnations.
The only possible way to improve this figure would be by giving to it real tank threads instead of fake ones with little wheels. I know it is impossible, but a man can dream.
