The illustrious toy galleries of Seibertron.com are back in full fashion after the fun of BotCon 2010. We're primed to give you the closest 360° look at upcoming Hunt For The Decepticons, Generations and Power Core Combiners toys. To start it all off, we've got one of the heavy hitters of the upcoming HFTD toy line. No longer is he a boat, drinking Santana champ, cause it's so crisp - now Banzai-Tron takes the form of a military tank. A heavy repaint of Voyager Bludgeon, this figure captures the color scheme and likeness of G1 Banzai-Tron. This sword wielder is a Voyager Wave 2 release, so expect it to hit your local shelves in the near future. For now, check out our gallery of Banzai-Tron in the links and pictures below!

Both Banzai-Tron and Bludgeon look really cool, but I like the way that Banzai has 2 distinct colours on his sword (among other things). I'll definitely pick this guy up.

I usually don't go for repaints, especially after I had to replace the original's sword with a dowel rod I shaped into a sword because the original is basically a spaghetti noodle with a cannon barrel on the end. But that has a nice ghostly look to it and I can't resist anything undead related.

Banzai-tron may be my last movie toy purchase...ever.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it "being a part of the movie line." Hasbro slips in an odd classic character in the active line where they can... thanks for that. Sometimes you have to ignore the packaging or the name.

It's a great sculpt and well-thought-out repaint with a very different look. I'll be making an exception to pick him up.

I don't know what to do about this guy. He looks solid but the robot mode just screams Bludgeon. I may get him and just leave him in alt mode. But then I dont know what I'll do with my voyager Budgeon when Headrobots releases their new headsculpt for the deluxe.. lol

DAMN! This looks good even though i swore to myself no more repaints after the ROTF line and here it is i'm drooling over this one and bought Payload as a G2 homage. This one i could use a shadow warrior type assassin against the Autobots and the actual Bludgeon figure go into the classics line up.

When should Banzaitron be released?

I really dig the colors used on this guy. You just can't really top the Botcon version though. It just fits better IMO. Big up to Hasbro for doing it though. He looks great.

I really do like this better than the original. Bludgeon may find himself cast off the display shelf in lieu of Banzai-tron.
