    So... in your opinion, which color scheme is better? I am thinking about getting one, but I do not know which to pick.

    They're both Bludgeon to me.

    The repaint is Bludgeon in Banzaitron drag.

    I guess I'm in the minority, but I like bonzaitron better. It may not represent the character as well as bludgeon, but side by side, I like bonzi's colors better.

    Bludgeon because it's a nice modern day take on the original. And he's a character that was in stuff. I don't even know who this Banzai guy is.

    "...And so we leave the Soviet Union of the past. For our next stop on the 'Excessive Military Buildup Can Be Hazardous To Your Budget' tour, we will be looking at the near future of this ordinary-looking Pennsylvania living room, filled with what at first glance appear to be several dozen ordinary scale-model tanks...."

    On topic: I bought Bludgeon and while I like the alt-mode colors of Banzaitron, I think the face looks too much like Bludgeon just dunked his head in some paint.

    Wait for the Takara Toy Festival exclusive. They're going to CHROME it!!!! They're going to mold half of it in CLEAR plastic! They're going to make the turret DIECAST and the threads RUBBER! They might even make it RED and call it WARPATH. New head mold? Sorry that's not in the budget.

    If they had given Banzai a more traditional face, I'd pick him. But if you're going to do a skull-face, I prefer the skull-white coloration. Therefore, Bludgeon wins.

    It's a shame that they decided to remold the heads for repaints after this release in particular. Cause that head is nothing but Bludgeon. So I gotta go with Bludgy.

    Bludgeon. The only thing Banzai-tron has going for him are the colored sword blades.
