Damn.

After seeing the pics, I think I like the original better, but the pre-order is already processing, so I can't cancel it.

Once I have it in hand I will make the decision. I have to assume I can re-coup my cost.

You can cancel for store credit. You can do that for two weeks after it is in you POL.

I think it is a ways away. Given that Headrobots is making the TFCON exclusive Stronghold.

There could be a onslaught mass release possible? Since they are looking at Onslaught for the Stronghold exclusive.


Poo! I want my Bludgeon!

I don't think any of these recolors have anything to do with the Bludgeon head release.

If it's delayed in design, tooling, testing... I'm sure that's a completely different team than the guys doing manufacturing with the existing molds.

After they have the mold, it's not a big deal to swap colors, but creating a new mold is a huge endeavor.

Bottom line.... I think they know we're all eager for that Bludgeon head. :-)

Yep, just received my invoice from BBTS. Can't wait to slap this on my Hardhead so I can display the first one in his robot mode.

Thank you. Some one with logic and reasoning.

Agreed. :APPLAUSE:

As far as Hardheaded goes, I'll probably be using a mix of the two sets. I don't care about G1 or cartoon accuracy; I just like what looks cool.

Regarding Bludgeon, I'm more interested in the Blood DX release, so I know I've got a wait coming… :-(

Yeah there is the Deluxe upgrade and the Voyager upgrade. The voyager upgrade looks reasonably affordable. Helmet, two sided head, two swords and a sword canon cover.

Pretty straight forward and not overly complex to mold.

Deluxe Bludgeon, which was a TRU exlcusive two pack with Blue Ovelon Blackout recolor. That looks like it might be a bit more expensive since the pieces look to be rather large. The turret and head. Are there weapons? I cant remember.

Oook. Was there a preorder up for the deluxe version? (Guessing this is the Blood DX designation.) Got the two confused #-o

Pics of both versions here:

Blood DX is at the bottom.
As stated, no preorders I'm aware of as yet… :-(

I'm just not a fan of the garish colours of the G1-ish version.

Thanks to both of you! Glad I didn't miss out.

I've really been liking the HeadRobots sculpts and quality... I even picked up that box set with Bludgeon just to add their head to it.

I hope Hasbro/Takara can realize that most of the 3rd party offerings (including labels) encourage buying their toys — often extras — to customize. I don't think I've ever bought a 3rd party toy INSTEAD of the official version.

And when I've owned a 3rd party figure (like Wheeljack) it didn't keep me from buying the official version when it finally came out.

That the case with most everyone?
