ROTF Bludgeon repurposed as G1 Bludgeon.

Wasn't ROTF Bludgeon originally conceived for the Unicron trilogy, then moved for 2009's universe for a G1 Bludgeon?

So this event clearly draws from IDW G1 stories. Has that been the case before?

From TFWiki:[quote]Artist Don Figueroa submitted a concept for a Unicron Trilogy Bludgeon toy way back during the development of the Energon or Cybertron toylines. Obviously, the concept wasn't put into production as a toy at the time, so Figueroa used it as inspiration for his IDW Publishing Stormbringer rendition of Generation 1 Bludgeon. However, Hasbro evidently resurrected the concept for the Universe (as mentioned by Hasbro at BotCon 2009) and then the Revenge of the Fallen lines, where it was finally released as that universe's Bludgeon. Figueroa notes that his contribution on this toy is very small, as his work on it ended when he submitted the concept to Hasbro way back when.[/quote]

I'm surprised that people are making a big deal over ROTF Bludgeon, but not MP Sideswipe!

A G1 toy as a G1 character... So?

They ordinarily take the Classics/Generations designs for this stuff, with the occasional movie design. I don't recall the last time they used an MP.

Are we certain that it's specifically the MP design and not just a design based on G1 Sideswipe in general?

Optimus's Legends designs look like they could be either MP Convoy or a general G1 Optimus design.

Being that all of the panel lines, hinges, etc. that are exclusive to the MP figure are present in this image, yes, I am sure it's specifically the MP design and not a generic G1-based design.

Give it another look.

The chest hood looks more like the scrunched-up flat G1 cartoon design chest hood rather than the spread out flat MP chest hood to me.

It could just be a general design that draws inspiration from the MP as well as from the basic G1 Sideswipe look ordinarily.

I'm not sure if you're being contrarian for the sake of being contrarian...

Bludgeon's face and forearms are not 100% accurate to the ROTF toy, but it is unmistakably ROTF Bludgeon. Whether you want to say it's "inspired by" ROTF Bludgeon is up to you, but it is ROTF Bludgeon. So too with Sideswipe here - you can say it's "inspired by" MP Sideswipe, but it is unmistakably the MP design, slightly shrunken chest or not.

Just put my order in for all 4 of the deluxe wave as well as the last 2 Kreo combiners from the last wave.
Thanks for the info and coupon! ;)^

Yep, just placed my order for the four as well. Saved $2.25 ($9.00 total) on each and qualified for free shipping. The retail stores in my area haven't started getting in anything yet so this is the best route to get the figures and at a discount at that. Thanks so much for the discount code.

I managed to snag Goldfire, Hoist, and Dreadwing through http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com a couple of weeks ago, but for some reason they failed to list Skids at the same time. And of course, now it's out of stock. So now I'm waiting for Skids to be restocked and hopefully that'll happen about the same time Whirl is added to the "Order Now" category. Or maybe even when Rattrap, Crosscut, Tankor, Arcee, and Chromia are added would be excellent as well. Free shipping is free shipping.

I also recommend ordering the simplified transformation version of Voyager Class Predaking. This dude is huge and lists for the same price as the other Voyagers that are smaller than it is, including its original version of itself. And the wings are better than the original when it comes to posing them behind Predaking in robot mode.

Even if the background has him standing in the middle of (a still-intact, non-destroyed) Equestria or Bikini Bottom? :P

So I was able to get it working again on my tablet and I got back into playing.

Until today when it updated and the stupid SD card error returned.

It would be nice to take part in this event, but as soon as I updated, I get the SD card issue, which has nothing on it. First I miss out one a even with Getaway who being a 2nd gen RX-7 made me angry (I was getting a separate issue for over a month saying my smartphone was to blame, which it wasn't they fixed it after the Halloween one), now I'll probably miss out on this one. This is the only game from Mobadge I've had issues with.
