Transformers Tech Specs


Brawn really got gyped in the cartoon. His specs describe him as the "second strongest Autobot" of the first toy run (after Optimus Prime, of course), meaning the little guy could go toe-to-toe with Megatron and hold his own. In the comic you'd see this, but never in the show. Heck, in Transformers: The Movie he was one of the first to get shot and killed aboard the Autobot shuttle when the Decepticons boarded. Nitpickers to this day maintain that there's no way Brawn could've gone down so easily, and insist that he survived to make cameo appearances in later cartoon episodes.

Brawn is also a recipe:
1 Pigs head (excluding the brain)
4 Pigs feet
2 lbs beef shin
4 cloves of garlic
1 bouquet garni
20 black peppercorns
4 tablespoons wine vinegar
salt to taste
4 onions
4 carrots, quartered
4 leeks, split

Put all the meat into a large pot. Cover with water and add the garlic, bouquet garni, peppercorns, vinegar, salt, onion, carrots, and leeks. Bring to a boil, skim and lower the heat.
Cover and simmer for at least 2 hours until meat comes easily off the bone. Remove the meat allow it to cool then pull all the meat off the bone, chopping coarsely. Set this aside.

Meanwhile, strain and reduce the stock by 1/2, then return the chopped meat to the stock and allow to cool. Then pour the stock into a loaf pan filling about 1/3 full. Refrigerate until set. Sprinkle with chopped herbs, and add a row of hard boiled eggs along the center of the pan. Cover with more meat and stock. Refrigerate until set. Turn the loaf pan over to remove, then press the loaf of Brawn into toasted bread crumbs to coat.

Serve cold with mustard, potatoes, and rye.
