They definitely have Bludgeon down, they just need to expand it.

I need to take a picture of my RotF Bludgeon, Generations Skullgrin, and TR Metalhawk together.

Jazz looks great, D-Max! Your figure is in wonderful condition, too. I only wish the humanoid shell had been modeled after Scatman Crothers. ;)

Are these actual reproduction or metallic updated stickers?

Weapon: Double Barreled Multi-Purpose Launcher
You know, I kinda wish the BotCon Bludgeon from Onslaught had ditched the slightly odd Thunderwing idea and based his torso mode on his pretender shell. I wish I had the resources to make an upgrade kit for him that would turn his vehicle mode into something closer to a tank (even if it was a rather long, archaic looking tank ala the Char B1 Bis), replaced the toy accurate but eye-searing purple guns, and gave him a combiner head and chest that resembled his spooky scary skeleton samurai shell. I could do it myself with modelling know-how but I'm not risking ruining an expensive con exclusive for something that might not work!

Also, you know which Autobot Pretender could do with a (full sized) update? Cloudburst! I've always loved his armour design, and if he got the "de-shelled" treatment ala ROTF Bludgeon or Gen Skullgrin, he could make for a really nice futuristic, Studio Artmic styled bubbly jet thing.

Of all the original humanoid Pretenders, Cloudburst was my favorite too! I only have his Prime Master incarnation, but came so close so many times to getting the G1 original...

I haven't taken the steps toward customizing figs either — I always enjoy seeing others’ work, however! Especially when it comes to custom Pretenders. ;)

The closest I’ve ever gotten is buying 3rd party add-ons; like my RotF Bludgeon and his Perfect Effect heads. I just have no love for the original head....

I don’t have Catilla, but of the other three, Carnivac & Chainclaw are easily the favorites.
