'''Heinrad''' posesses the unique ability to stop time for a short period of time.

His beast mode is that of a [[wikipedia:Tanuki|Tanuki]]. Meaning he has a giant pair of testicles. This 'bot's got balls of steel.
   
To say '''Brawl''' is a warrior is like calling [[Cybertron (planet)|Cybertron]] a hunk of metal. Brawl does not just enjoy fighting, he is consumed by it. Tearing Autobots apart is embedded into his very core, and every fiber-optic cable of his being is obsessed with wild, unyielding combat. The only thing he enjoys, or even cares about, is the fury of battle. And he ''loves'' a good explosion. Particularly if it's one he created, and if it was an [[Autobot]] that is exploding.

After Unicron's defeat, Heinrad revealed himself to be an undercover agent of the God of Time and took his crewmates on a ''magical journey'' back in time to say goodbye to Big Convoy.
   
Debuting in [[Transformers Comic issue 2]] and called Devastator, he is known as [[Megatron (Movie)|Megatron's]] "pet weapon of mass destruction!". Megatron threw him at the Autobots so he could reach the [[AllSpark]], and had armed him with a foldspace warhead. When the Autobots pointed out that at this range, the warhead would take him out as well, he replied "Eh. So?" and fired anyway. He loves a good explosion ''that much''.

====Autobot campaign====
 
 
Brawl arrived in [[Mission City]] shortly after [[Jazz (Movie)|Jazz]] took down [[Starscream (Movie)|Starscream]], [[Blackout (Movie)|Blackout]] and a pair of [[Dreadwing (Movie)|Dreadwings]] single-handedly. The Autobot's victory was short-lived... and so was the Autobot, as Brawl punctured Jazz's chest with his claw, extinguishing his [[spark]]. [[Ironhide (Movie)|Ironhide]] arrived just in time to witness the killing, and fought through a horde of Decepticon units to destroy Brawl.
 
 
====Decepticon campaign====
 
Brawl, [[Bonecrusher (Movie)|Bonecrusher]] and Starscream were hiding out in a human military installation in the desert when they received word that [[Frenzy (Movie)|Frenzy]] and [[Barricade (Movie)|Barricade]] had discovered the location of the [[AllSpark]]. When the three Decepticons mobilized, the two ground-based machines were assaulted by tanks designed to fire holding beams of electrical energy, forcing Starscream to back-and-forth babysit the two Decepticons as they tried to escape.
 
 
Brawl later stood by [[Megatron (Movie)|Megatron's ]] side in Washington D.C. after they had retrieved the AllSpark from the destroyed Autobots and had decimated pretty much everything in their path.

Brawl appears at the Hoover Dam after successfully defusing several bombs intended to free Megatron. As Optimus Prime attempts to rendezvous with the other Autobots, Brawl blocks his only path — a hidden Air Force hangar tunneled into the canyon. During the fight, Brawl produces a pair of Tank Drones that regenerate when destroyed. He fights with his claw and multitude of guns, and when he's taken enough damage will retreat into his shell, a la tank mode. Here he becomes nearly invincible, with his only weakness being the drones scattered around the arena.

Brawl (here called "Devastator") was lying in wait at a military depot when Starscream contacted the Decepticon infiltration team, informing them that the All Spark had been found and they were to move out. Devastator acknowledged that he was in transit and rolled out of the depot and said: devastator reporting...(in cybertronian). He met up with [[Barricade (Movie)|Barricade]] and [[Bonecrusher (Movie)|Bonecrusher]] and hit the highway, though Devastator separated from the group before Barricade and Bonecrusher got on the freeway and met up with Autobot/human convoy.
 
 
Arriving at [[Mission City]] in the aftermath of Starscream's opening attack on the Autobots and their [[William Lennox|human]] [[Robert Epps|allies]], Devastator fired shells from his main gun, narrowly missing several targets before running over vehicles abandoned by human bystanders. As the American soldiers fanned out in search of cover, the jazz charged at Devastator and threw him. He focused his attacks on [[Ironhide (Movie)|Ironhide]], who was forced to somersault over his shells. This distraction allowed the Autobot Jazz to jump on top of Devastator and point his cannon away from the humans. Devastator managed to transform and throw the smaller Autobot off him, but not before Jazz destroyed his left side rocket launcher pod.
 
 
Damaged, but not down, Devastator fired two rockets from his remaining launcher, missing the heavily armed Autobot as he somersaulted over the missiles. Ironhide and Jazz managed to fire several shots at Devastator, disorienting him. [[Ratchet (Movie)|Ratchet]] followed up by using his buzzsaw to slice off Devastator's left arm. The humans then fired a volley of sabot rounds, which knocked Devastator to the ground. The only thing that saved him was the Autobots and humans' retreat at the arrival of [[Megatron (Movie)|Megatron]]. Eventually, Ironhide and Ratchet disengaged from the battle as they left to protect [[Sam Witwicky|ladiesman217]], who was escaping with the All Spark, while Jazz took on Megatron. Now with fewer targets to deal with, Devastator sprayed heavy machine gun fire at the remaining humans, whose leader remarked that the battle was not going well.
 
 
Devastator continued to pin down the soldiers until the damaged Autobot [[Bumblebee (Movie)|Bumblebee]] suddenly attacked while on the back of of a tow truck driven by Ladiesman217's [[Mikaela Banes|female companion]]. With Bumblebee's plasma cannon being the deciding factor, the human soldiers rallied and fired more sabots, piercing Devastator's armor until a final shot from Bumblebee struck Devastator's spark and killed him.
 
 
Devastator's body was dumped into the deepest part of the ocean along with his fellow Decepticons, in the hopes the intense pressure and cold will destroy whatever remained. {{Storylink|Transformers (2007)}}

[[Image:Movie_Deluxe_Brawl_toy.jpg|thumb|left|200px|Don't let them know about my arm problem or they won't buy me]]
 
 
: Deluxe-class Brawl transforms into a heavily modified fictional tank based upon an [[wikipedia:M1_Abrams|M1A1 Abrams]], fitted with angular reflective armor, a mine plow and external spare fuel canisters. Mounted upon the turret is a smaller sub-turret housing two anti-aircraft cannons and rocket launchers. The spring-loaded main cannon fires a translucent red projectile.
 
 
: In robot mode, Brawl faithfully replicates his movie design, with the only major divergence being that his main gun does not split into smaller guns (although the guns ARE on the back half of the cannon, which is situated on a slider and can be spun around). He is reasonably articulated, with ball and swivel joints in his arms and legs. Thanks to [[Automorph]]ing, pushing down on the front of his tank during transformation raises the front of the treads and his head up into position for his robot mode, and vice versa for the tank mode. He is armed with his spring-loaded main gun on his right arm and a flip-out blade on his left.
 
 
: There is a design flaw in the way Brawl's arms attach to his torso - the rhombic peg and socket system used does not provide a tight enough fit, and thus the arms have a tendency to detach at the shoulder when moved. There have also been some reports of the gears for the treads crack easily and no longer function properly. At least you can reenact that part in the movie where Ratchet saws off Brawl's arm.

:The larger, more heavily armed version of Brawl, this figure is more accurate to the character's CGI model, but with a somewhat inaccurate transformation. It features Brawl's smaller, four-gun turret on his right arm, plus the gatling gun and claw combination on his left arm. The only major diversion in his design is the main turret now resting near his right hip, a la ''Armada'' Megatron. It features more articulation and weapons than the Deluxe-class figure, as is to be expected.
 
 
:While having no firing missiles, it does feature a number of Automorph gimmicks. First, pressing the button on the front of the tank causes his head and chest pieces to move into position. A scoop/claw has been added to the front of the tank, probably to make the lever to push his head back down stand out less. Second, pressing the headlights on either side of the front end causes the paneling to swing back into place. Finally, by pulling the cannon on the left arm back, the claw swings forward.
 
 
:Other features include lights and sounds, activated by pushing back on the main cannon or turning the upper turret. A pair of blades can also swing down from the legs. Although taken from Brawl's concept art, they aren't implemented particularly well... The art shows them jutting forward at a 45 degree angle from the legs, but nothing on the toy impedes the blades from swinging straight down to the ground, right into his feet. They're completely undocumented anywhere on the box or instructions, probably out of embarassment.
