Starscream, or Grimlock rather, has revealed the first figure in the exclusive 2012 BotCon "Invasion" boxset! Check out the video embedded below to get your first look at Gigatron, who is a repaint of ROTF Voyager Bludgeon with brand new head sculpt. A mold chosen to reference Overlord's Gigatank component.

No, well kinda. He was a plane and a tank that combined into one large bot that could also turn into a base. I'm liking this, I hope HR will make a set for this, with Powermasters and replacements for the bendy swords.

Leave it to Dead Metal to have the word 'Pronz' in his signature.
So..... what the hell kinda laptop do you think Starscream uses? Looks like an Apple with a custom backing. Seems like the kind of laptop he'd use. Though why he'd use an Apple product and not something Cybertronian... or Dell, is beyond me.

Talk about unexpected, never would have thought of Bludgeon as Overlord, kinda weird I mean, that Bludgeon doesn't really work as anyone else in my eyes, especially not someone with a design so unique like Overlord, At least you'd get a cool rendition of the Giga Tank.

You should change your name to "pessimist prime"

So... This year's BotCon is Classics vs. Shattered Glass... Correct? Over lord is not a Shattered Class figure, right? So, does this mean that the Bludgeon/Banzaitron mold can be considered Classics mold, right? (FYI, I put Lockdown and Axor in my Classics collection after the appearance in the Drift comic.)

This is absolute horsesh*t!! A total disgrace to the G1 giant in every possible sense and one of my grails. The fact that they chose one of the crappiest molds to one of the crappiest films ever spewed by Hollywood still proves that HasTak still has great morons at their marketing tables. WTF seriously?? This disgrace sits along side Classics Galvatron. Christ what the f*ck is next?!
Love the color scheme and the head. But considering the head for LSotW had a Greco-Roman inspiration and this head seems to follow suit; it feels odd atop a very samurai body. It isn't very... in-character?
Having said that, this is still a solid figure. If they could swap out the katana and wakizashi with a more western sword and dagger, it would look a lot better.
