I am not a huge fwn of the swords they gave Bludgeon. But I am glad they gave him swords. I know some people have lamented his alt mode, and I can sorta sympathize. Its not my ideal Bludgeon figure, for that I go back to the Battle in a Box Megatron deluxe with the spinny tank barrel thing. But it is a cool Bludgeon, and as a fan of Stormbringer and what it did to and for Thunderwing, I can get behind his being a combiner in the same line of thinking as the Unite Warriors Galvatronus/Galvatron. I can see why some more G1 centric Thunderwing fans would feel sleighted though.

The limb bots are all totaly awesome. I aM tiring of the targetmaster molds, but they are there and needed for the role. Far better to have them than to not. Ruckus' vehicle mode looks too busy to me with the shock absorber decals, but its neat colors and I like his bot mode. I have 0 complaints about any of the others and look forward to adding them to Classics/ Generations combiner or no. Where did the Matr8x bauble come fr9m, a d can I get a chain for it?

It looks like the MP10 Matrix... and a chain would be off the chain.

Something I noticed: The character profiles that were put up during the order period said "When combined with the rest of his squad mates, Ruckus often forms the combiner's sword arm as he is the only one that Bludgeon trusts can be controlled flawlessly." and "When in combiner mode, Needlenose is often seen as a leg since Bludgeon knows this limits Needlenose's sensory inputs and helps ensure that his wandering attention does not affect the combiner's lethal efficiency." But after that, they seem to have, for lack of a better term, switched places.

Windsweeper and Ruckus certainly look a lot more appealing than previous uses of their molds too. It's just that 'Bludgeon' putting me off the whole thing.

I'm definitely going to pick up Ruckus and Bludgeon. I love that they're homaging his inner robot. Now if only someone would repaint Classics Jetfire as Cloudburst and Cybertron Ransack as Iguanus.

Not unless he buys them on the secondary market.

BBTS had preorders up for the individual figures that ran between $70-$90 per figure.

Which is about what you would have to pay at botcon if you tried to buy the leftovers - which it doesn't sound like will be the case based on making sets based on orders - if you aren't already a member, you pay ~$45 to be able to buy the figures at ~$50-70 each =;

I think they all look pretty good with Bludgeon being my least favorite & Needlenose being my most favorite. I'd like Bludgeon more if his head sculpt sported an actual translucent visor with painted & sculpted eyes behind it. Oh well. I also echo the opinion that he suffers based on the fact that his alt mode isn't a tank but we've known that for a while now.

Bludgeon is also my least favorite, but based on the mold choice, it's hard for me to imagine how he would have turned out better. And the more I think about it, I probably like Bludgeon more than I would have liked a voyager Thunderwing out of Silverbolt.

When it was announced and I saw the renders or preliminary whatevers, I though "huh, neat, someone will like those". But I wasn't really interested. Now though... I don't really know why, but these finished proto's got me seein stars 8-}

That headsculpt for Bludgeon doesn't say, Bludgeon. They need to give him something much more different, something, Bludgeonish, if you know what I mean. >:oP

The Club is going for inner-robot Bludgeon, not pretender-shell (or IDW-esque) Bludgeon. So, all things considered, it's actually quite Bludgeon-ish.

I concur. As much as it's accurate to the original, I think everybody prefers his samurai head to any other alternative. Needlenose and Impactor are the highlights of this set.
