    I don't mind the Samurai thing at all, and it would be true to his namesake, but that Pirate design is just much more suited to the proportions he has.

    Make him a wako - one of those feared Japanese pirates who plied Asia's waters during the seventeenth century. They wore samurai armor while being piratical at the same time.

    Samurai.

    I don't want them to screw up a character I actually care about.

    Well, he looks like somebody who does what he wants, so I'd say that he is a pirate. Pirates are free, after all.

    But does he love to sail the sea? That'd be the clincher.

    Yar-har.

    Fiddle-de-dee.

    If they make him a pirate, he'll just turn out looking like an undead / ghost pirate, and those are played out and lame.

    I hate to say it, but the pirate version doesn't even really look like Bludgeon.

    Samurai for continuity's sake.

    If he wants an Animated pirate, do Cannonball.

    Samurai.

    That was the essence of Bludgeon. I don't mind deviations at all, but I think if you want to do a pirate, use someone like Cannonball or one of the many bland "background fodder" from the Pretender/Action Master lineup who didn't get much characterization.

    I can't decide! Why can't he be both?

    Because Prowl and Jazz were ninjas in G1.

    Pirate, totally pirate.

    And that isn't just to prevent the hate from Kickback.

    They weren't pirates. There's a difference between adding something new to a character and doing something that's sort of the polar opposite of what they've been known best for all along.
    It'd be like making Jazz a goofy white redneck.

    Besides, pirate Bludgeon looks too much like Lockdown.

    Eh, that's okay, I figured you hated me already.:dunce  Now I have no expectations to live up to!

    If proper "Yo-ho-ho me hearties" pirates are to be featured in Animated, they should just use the Seacons instead.

    Samurai reminds me too much of hypocrite-er, armoured Prowl. I like the Pirate, because it looks like G1, but ISN'T his G1. It's BETTER.

    Also, I want that hat badly.

    This would open up the debate of "Pirates vs Ninjas" in Transformers mythology. Could Bludgeon beat up Jazz and Prowl?
