    Which figure do you like more? I was thinking of picking up 1 of them. Any real differences other than color?

    Between the two, I like and own Bludgeon. Other than the color, they're the exactly the same.

    I like Bonzaitron more because I don't care for character reference and that I liked the more subdued colors as well as laser color blade.

    People seems to like Bludgeon more because of the homage or what nots.

    I have both, though I play with Bonzaitron a bit more since I like him more. The lade seem to be made of slightly sterner stuff, but it could be just my copy of Bludgeon

    Banzai-Tron. We need more neon green Action Master shout-outs.

    I'd prefer Bludgeon, but we never got him over here in the UK and generally he's been more costly than I fancy to buy import. I think we're getting Banzaitron though and I'd probably be somewhat happy with that since I collect more for new molds than anything, but at the back of my mind I'll still have a weak hankering for Bludgeon. I guess it boils down to me being too cheap to buy the one I really want. But then I could also blame it on one of those times we only get the repaint of a particular mold when the original version is more to my liking. A similar time being when we only got the Roadbuster repaint of TFA Ultra Magnus and I had to import a proper blue one.

    I prefer the orange and green of Bludgeon. Great color combination.

    Plus, skulls rule.

    I can appreciate Banzaitron's additional paint apps, but I think the mold really belongs to Bludgeon, especially if you get a proper 1:6 scale sword. I like silver skulls.

    Bludgeon definitely.

    Botcon Banzai-Tron is a much better depiction of the character, IMO. But the HfD one could serve as a CHUG one if needed.

    Bludgeon will always be really cool to me. I never wanted a tf as bad as I wanted him ever since we seen the pics from the Con's in '09. It's cool that they made Banzaitron from him, and I may pick him up too if I can find him again. But his skull/face colors are kind of goonish.

    LOL, Bonzai-Tron....

    Bonsai are miniature trees. It's banzai, and I would advise not to use that term in Japan.

    Your pic is one of the main reason I want the figure. Definitely leaning towards bludgeon.

    Well even though I like Banzai-Trons colors better, the mold is undeniably Bludgeon. So I mean if you're familiar with the character, you should get Bludgeon.

    I've only heard about him in reviews so I got Banzai-Tron to use as another character.
