WING SABER TOYZ SPECIAL: = AFA-GRADED 1987 AUTOBOT HEADMASTER BRAINSTORM!=


''BRAINSTORMING'' SESSION?!

Hey there boys and girls! Welcome to another random preview for another blog post by the uber collector and all round friendly neighborhood  hoarder   nice guy, Adam aka WSX. Today's feature collection is by far the most valuable in terms of the collecting process ever managed to be won by me,. Yet again without humbly and sincerely thanking another wonderful seller Ive had the pleasure to meet on the TFW2005 boards. He is none other than all round UK nice bloke and seller, Locustreign! He is a kind soul, having let me win this awesome auction for this super cool AFA graded item, not withstanding the super-secret deal we have made! LOL. Brainstorm is an interesting figure simply because he was more prominent in the Japanese Headmasters cartoon continuity. Not only was he the sole responsible creator for the Headmaster technology and the Autobot's pioneering scientist/ physicist. Sure, he may not pack a wallop in battle, but he can be useful in terms of plotting a tactically scientific method for defeating the enemy. Brainstorm's interesting factoid is the different animation models used in the Japanese/American and commercials. I personally prefer the Japanese Headmaster model, which much resembles Brainstorms's toy in both colour and appearance.  the picture below shows the Japanese version, while the picture after is from the Rebirth series. Head and colour differences make for an interesting character representation.

Brainstorm's Robot and futuristic Jet Modes. 
  • Brainstorm (1987)
    • Japanese ID numberC-104
    • Accessories: "Arcana" Headmaster pilot, left & right "High-EnergyPhoton Pulse Cannons"
Brainstorm transforms into a turquoise Cybertronic fighter craft. Both of Brainstorm's twin pistols attach to the front of his alt-mode's nosecone to extend it and augment it with two canard wings. As with all larger Headmaster toys, Brainstorm features both a cockpit suitable for his partner, Arcana, to sit in and an abbreviated Tech Specs bar graph inside his chest hidden under a hinged panel. When a compatible Headmaster head is plugged into the socket on Brainstorm's body, the bars will show three of that character's Tech Specs.

MEET THE ROBOT IN QUESTION!
Tech Spec

"The strongest tyrant cannot crush freedom of thought."

So full of ideas that he often begins disclosing a new one before he finishes explaining an old one. Worked with the mysterious Nebulan medical doctor, Arcana, to whom he's binary-bonded, to devise new technology that created the Headmasters. In jet mode, maximum speed: 5200mph. Range: 8000 miles. In robot mode, carries high-energy photon pulse cannons. Sometimes overheats and shorts out sections of his cerebro-circuitry.
