    Don't own either (sorry), but if given the chance I'd get Bludgeon.

    Bludgeon's a fairly awesome figure, and I'd recommend that over Arcee (who is actually fun in her own right).

    Arcee, Bludgeon is plentiful and will last longer on the shelves since it's on ROTF line
    most store probably carry limited number of Arcees

    if I were you; both

    I disagree! Bludgeon and Arcee will disappear faster than a speeding bullet. People are so nostalgic that most will buy multiples. So to the OP, get both. Sign up for Toys R Us rewards club (it's free), they'll send you coupons that will save you some money.

    Arcee. Bludgeon will be an easy find for a long time. Arcee won't.

    ^^^ This. Arcee is a store-exclusive to TRU. Her availability may be limited. Bludgeon, while the superior toy in my opinion, will be around and more available.

    So eventually, you should get both.

    I thought this thread was going to be a joke. The OP was actually serious. :lol 


    *edit* Fudge, I thought this was about ROTF Arcee, not animated. Get Arcee, you should be able to get Bludgeon off of HTS if you need to. Lord knows how long Arcee will be avaliable.

    Although I don't have Arcee yet, I plan to though, I would say get her first. Being an exclusive she will be the hardest to find by far and depending on how many TRU ordered may not last long. Bludgeon will be easy to find soon enough like most mass retail figures. He is currently still in stock on Amazon.com and up for pre-order on HTS. I've seen him several times already around my area, although that really doesn't mean much since we all know availability varies from place to place. Bludgeon is a can't miss though if you like the G1 character or even if you aren't familiar with him.

    Animated was what I like to think of as a phase I went through.

    They're AWESOME toys, don't get me wrong. I just... don't dig the style anymore.

    The movie toys I go in and out of. Once Universe 2.0 hit, the movie designs faded from my interest... but once ROTF hit, I was very happy to see what they brought to the table (and loved most of it).

    If Animated is your thing, I'd go grab Arcee. With the show ended, she'll probably be harder to find, and she looks like a pretty sweet toy. I don't plan to get her, but it's with a bit of remorse (probably a bad word to use, but it's the best I can think of), since I don't think she'll fit on my shelves anywhere, and I'm looking to sell off my Animated collection.

    Bludgeon is awesome, and will probably end up being easier to find. Awesome rendition of a character I've only read about on these boards. IMHO, he fits in with both a Classics collection AND a movie collection, which is a plus for me. He's fun to transform, looks good in both modes, and is a freakin' skeletal, robotic samurai. That's pretty badass.

    If you're still into Animated stuff, Arcee does look pretty awesome. Bludgeon, however, is pure win, and I don't think you can go wrong with him.

    I think both are great, and you should buy them ;) 

    As for an order, I'd only give Arcee a notch above Bludgeon. While badass, I think Bludgeon will be easy enough to get just about anywhere. Arcee seems like a "You see it, you snag it RIGHT THEN" kind of deal. I think that figure is going to move really fast, so grab it when you can and get Bludgeon at the same time or the following day :)

    I have both. Get Bludgeon, no contest. It's nice to finally have a G1-styled Arcee, but Bludgen is just a far better toy.
