    well, i hope. I need to find out if the KO toy is worth the tune-up and if it can be accuratly made to resemble Bludgeon.

    as far as I know, the toy is about the same size as G2 Hero Megs.

    If The bash does not work out, I will either have a kewl new tank-bot (tank TFs are my favorite) or i will try and transplant parts, such as the cannon and backpack-like parts and possibly arms onto my existing Bludgeon Bash

    I used to have that figure! I'd gotten it from the bakery from my local grocery store. It was used as a decoration for a birthday cake! It's a nice enough figure (for a really cheap KO), and your idea looks pretty slick! My favorite thing about him was the 'mutant' mode he's got, leave the head down, and open up that 'mouth' on the front of the tank. -He's even got a molded tongue in there!

    The only thing I didn't care for about him was that he was so 'hollow', I always thought he could use some heft to him! His waist hinge always scared me too, I always thought he was going to break on me!

    so how was the cannon? i was thinking of transplanting it to mu other bludgeon kitbash if this didnt work out. ...the cannon becomes like the 'tank-top' in vehicle form?

    oh and, yeah i read about this fig on an earier thread as a cake topper....i still need to order it, though..

    I guess there's not much to say about it, it was plastic, didn't move up or down, just off to the side in robot mode... It has a door on it (screwed on) for what I'd assume were some electronics, but the one I had didn't have any...

    I hope you can make out details of the figure from those photos, they were taken the same day I got the guy... Not much to him, his arms could move at the shoulders & elbows, his legs are 1 piece (with no articulation), and the entire back half of the figure is hollow... I believe I paid a whole $4 for him at the time, so I didn't complain (plus, it was my first KO!)

    You don't have it yet? Because I know of a better, more accurate KO you could probably use.

    I picked it up in a local pound shop a couple of weeks ago, and all things considered, it's pretty reasonable quality. It's pretty much a straight copy of RM Reverse Convoy, except that it doesn't have the Prime head or the chest flap to reveal it - it's just got the Megatron head that folds behind the cannon. The missile doesn't fire, but is removeable.
