HK TF user - Chenkofs has written a review (in chinese) for upcoming ROTF Bludgeon.
Below is the translation of the review by our Seibertron member-Real Devastator:

"Rating: 5-point scale ★

Toy Category: Voyager [voyager]
Package Type: MISB
Metal components: None
Light/Electronic: None
Figure: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Tank style: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Movable Level: ★ ★ ★ ★
Transformation difficulty: ★ ★ ★
Color: ★ ★ ★ ★


ROBOT MODE: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
After more than ten years sitting in the back seat, the leading role in G1 UK version and the G2 comic book – The Bludgeon is finally having a proper toy.

Initially when the toy arrived and played with it for a while, I was a bit disappointed. My thinking was the designers traded off some features for the rotating tank turret.
However, after carefully reading the instructions, it was found that the second weapon is hidden inside the turret. And the tank barrel becomes the holder of Bludgeon sword. There are also two holes at the side of the tank, this made the toy looks even more like Japanese samurai warrior.

The only complaint, Bludgeon’s face is a bit friendly. Not evil enough.


Weapons and equipment: Long sword (slotted in tank Gun Barrel), a smaller knife that can slot in at Bludgeon left hip.

Mech Alive features: Lift the knees up and down will rotate the mechanical parts on Bludgeon thighs.


Alternate Mode: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Tank mode make reference to the German Leopard-2 Tanks, the turret can rotate 360-degrees. (classic 2.0 Galvatron should burst into tears)
However the barrel can’t lift up or down.

The treads are made of rubber, but in order to take care the younger toy players, auxiliary wheels are also added in.
Turret fence, additional armor, laser range finder / sensors, engine cooling and other details are available in the tank mode.
Rotating turret is equipped with a machine gun, and two missile / grenade launchers on both sides.


Movable Level: ★ ★ ★ ★
The head can turn left and right, the shoulder can lift up and down, two elbow joints, No waist movement, the thigh can move front and back, as well as left and right.
Overall Bludgeon has good of mobility.

Transformation Difficulty: ★ ★ ★
Normal transformation difficulty. Process is a bit similar to Animated Megatron toy.

Color: ★ ★ ★ ★
Excellent color, although a bit plastic feeling.


CONCLUSION: Highly Recommended."

Images have surfaced of another Miniature Masterpiece figure. It's suitable that it's the nemesis of Miniature Masterpiece Optimus Prime, and that of course is Megatron. Every detail from the original Masterpiece has been replicated into a tinier, voyager sized mold. This will most likely be retailed by iGear. Take a look at it in the pictures below!

Re: Miniature MP05 Megatron

Of course nothing beats the original, which you can see on Seibertron's galleries here.

Masterpiece Megatron is a bit hard to get in North America, as the toy does not fit within custom regulations unless modified. The same will most likely occur with this Miniature, unless the tip of the gun barrel is painted orange. Remember that this figure is not licensed by Hasbro Inc or Takara Corp.

As news crew member Nekoman showed us earlier, we are getting two new Scout repaints, an orange repaint of Scout Dead End (or Detour in Europe), and a red repaint of Scout Knockout. While we get nothing in the means of official names, TFCToys have put the figures up for auction on Ebay. You can take a look at the pictures and the listings in the links below.

While fan speculation deems the Dead End repaint to be based on G1 Wheelie, we of Seibertron think that the yellow flames on the side are a homage to a little guy, Micromaster Greaser.

Hello Seibertronians, News crew member Blurrz here. It's that time of year again. As we all know, unless you've been living in a cave, the Revenge of the Fallen film was released in theatres this summer, and that means it's subsequent DVD release is approaching. We now overlook the date, as the DVD release is set for this Tuesday, October 20.

What you need to know: Revenge of the Fallen DVD Exclusives

Now most of you are probably not anticipating the DVD or Blu-Ray versions of the film, but are more intrigued with what else you are getting with it! We're talking about DVD exclusives that each retailer carry, and it's been a hot topic the past month or so. After looking at what is available out there, I've decided to compile a list of exclusives, so you, me, and the common Transformers fan does not end up having 6 copies of the film.

Before we get going with the exclusives, here is what most retailers are getting in terms of special editions.

Two-Disc Special Edition DVD & Blu-ray:
What you need to know: Revenge of the Fallen DVD Exclusives


The TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen two-disc Special Edition DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, French 5.1 Surround and Spanish 5.1 Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles. The Blu-ray will be presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital with English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles. The disc breakdown is as follows:

Disc 1:

-- Feature Film
-- Commentary by Michael Bay, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman

Disc 2:

-- The Human Factor: Exacting Revenge of the Fallen--This multi-chapter
documentary chronicles the entire creation of the film and includes
interviews with the cast and crew:
-- Seeds of Vengeance - Development and Design - After the overwhelming
success of 2007's Transformers, how do the filmmakers top
themselves for the sequel?
-- Domestic Destruction - Production: United States - Michael Bay
believes in going big: Big action and big explosions. Cast and
crew are pushed to the limit as they traverse the U.S. from New
Mexico to Pennsylvania.
-- Joint Operations - Production: Military - No other filmmaker in the
world enjoys the kind of military access and cooperation Michael Bay
has. Here we see just how efficient our armed forces are and the awe
and respect shown by the cast.
-- Wonders of the World - Production: Middle East - You can't
really reproduce Egypt anywhere but Egypt so off we go to Giza and
Luxor.
-- Start Making Sense - Editing - In order to turn over the massive
amount of film as quickly as possible to VFX, four editors work
tirelessly in a unique tag-team approach to shape the film.
-- Under the Gun - Visual Effects - Revenge of the Fallen features the
most complicated VFX in film history. So complicated in fact that
the filmmakers were unsure they would make the deadline. The
DEVASTATOR VFX alone required 83% of ILM's total render farm
capacity.
-- Running the Gauntlet - Post-Production and Release - Working seven
days a week, Michael Bay and company usher the film through sound
design, Digital Intermediate color-timing and a globe-trotting
whirlwind of premieres.
-- A Day with Bay: Tokyo--An intimate and fun all-access journey with
Michael Bay as he travels to Tokyo, Japan for the world premiere of the
biggest film of the year.
-- 25 Years of TRANSFORMERS--Access an all-new featurette celebrating a
monumental milestone for one of Hasbro's most successful and
popular franchises.
-- NEST: Transformer Data-Hub--Explore conceptual artwork created by the
production for 12 of the most popular AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS from the
film.
-- Deconstructing Visual Bayhem with Commentary by Pre-Vis Supervisor Steve
Yamamoto-- A series of multi-angle pre-visualization sequences allowing
viewers to learn how some of the film's most spectacular scenes
were created with an introduction by Michael Bay.
-- Extended Scenes

-- Music Video: Linkin Park's "New Divide"


Blu-Ray Edition

-- The ALLSPARK Experiment--Viewers get their chance to unleash the power
of the recently recovered ALLSPARK shard on Earth vehicles. Begin by
selecting and customizing a vehicle with a selection of parts and
accessories. Then apply the ALLSPARK to this creation and watch what
happens. Applying the ALLSPARK to certain custom combinations enables
four new robot characters with special powers. If viewers discover all
four, they unlock a fifth vehicle, which reveals a top secret message
about the future of the TRANSFORMERS movie franchise.
-- NEST: Transformer Data-Hub--A database of some of the TRANSFORMERS
characters that appear in the new film, offering users access to each
robot's confidential file including:
-- Innovative 3D spin galleries of each robot
-- A timeline for each TRANSFORMERS character charting its origins,
back story and design evolution from toys to animated series to
comics and finally feature films
-- Giant Effing Movie - A very personal look at the making of the movie.

-- The Matrix of Marketing--An archive of the film's promotional media
including trailers, posters and television spots.

You're probably wondering, where are the Toys? The 2007 Movie exclusives had just that, exclusive Robot Heroes, and Best Buy's exclusive Premium Ratchet and Megatron. Unfortunately North America and most of the world won't be receiving any exclusive figures with their DVDs, however there's one place.....

.....Takara Territory, Japan, has just about everything when it comes to exclusive toys and the Revenge of the Fallen DVD release. If you don't reside in Japan, you aren't exactly left out, however you might be paying the price of 10 Blu-Ray sets just to get a hold on some of these.

That's about it. Don't forget the release date on October 20. Keep the budget low and make sure you don't end up with 6 different copies of the film!
