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.


It might not look like a samurai, per se, but it does still look like a martial artist, at least to me. Maybe it's the headband?

I know this is the wrong opinion to have, but I'm okay with the new head.

It's not wrong, I like it too, I mean, sure I'd rather have a crazy psycho-techno skull for a head, but nobodies done it well yet, so I'll take this, as it looks equally epic ;)^

Anythign is possible with the CLub, but I wouldn't count on it unless we get a Botcon add-on. Say, Silverbolt or Scattorshot as Sandstorm and fill in the blanks. But as far as we know, No.

I do like this Bludgeon head. it's not the Samauri skull, but it's a nice enough head. I think what

But, there seems to be something off - visually - with thunderwings head, maybe its the lack of symmetrical kibble on vortexs' shoulder, or it might be the colors, or the proportion of the face-to-helmet ratio, but somethings not sitting right with my brain :HEADHURTS:
is seeing is a result of a non-final head skulpt. Your'e right, the head looks swollen compared to the helmet, not enough definition in the edge of the chinplate and his cheek structure. But the head also looks rough to me like a Shapeways print, so it's either bad lighting and bad paint or a rough head mould. And its a little big proportionately compared to what we have gotten, but a lot of times, TF heads, especially those from TFCC are smaller than proportionate to their bodies. So it may be that too.

This picture has me all kinds of excited for Stormbringer. I need a chain to hang the Matrix from his neck.

The description for next year's TCC magaine story refers to Impactor as "the last of the Wreckers." So, it's possibly a sign that he's on his own now.

I think my appreciation for the Bludgeon's inner robot head is colored by the fact that I do own ROTF Bludgeon with the Headrobots upgrade. If I didn't, I'd probably want a samurai head too.

Also, I didn't realize Impactor is coming with some extra weapons - from Arcee of all places! That's actually really nice.

Yeah, I agree. The fact that I have a voyager & deluxe Bludgeon's with samurai head sculpts makes me less upset with the fact that the Club went this route, this time. I hope they tone down the green on Bludgeon. It looks really out of place in combined mode in my opinion.

I'm also surprised the Club decided to add all of the black panel lines to the top of Impactor's head sculpt. I've seen a lot of people complain about that on MMC's Spartan.

Little surprised those Targetmasters aren't combined. Heck, I only have Scoop thus far, but fiddling with him gives me the impression it's probably even possible to stick all four together. :D

I hope not. I'd rather see Ruination go back to being a Decepticon combiner some day.

...

I can dream, right?

I thought that would've been Menasor? What with the birth-giving hips that clash with the crotchplate when trying to get any good poses if you could prevent him from falling over due to the original run's sketchy nearly nonfunctional ratcheted hips....

...I should probably look into that for mine.

That's differebt, though... They're meant to homage the originals, one of them having a limb that is susceptible to GPS, the other having never been released save the one limb. What I'm getting at is that they could've engineered Menasor better, IMO.

I think the g2 Superion colors work perfectly for CW Arielbots, and am kinda tempted to get that set...
