    Botcon Banzai-Tron, which i think is not ordinary but I still wonder if worth to collect it. The appearance and the color is perfect.
    Does anyone like it and how about your suggestion?

    I really like the Botcon Banzai-Tron. In my opinion it's a much more truthful representation of the original character than the Blugeon recolour.

    If I had the choice (and budget) I'd rather go for the Botcon one.

    I totally agree. Got my Botcon BT earlier this year, didn't even have to bother with the Bludgeon repaint. It helps that the Energon Mirage old is light years better than RoTF Bludgeon's too. Yeah yeah yeah, flame away...

    I'm getting a friend to repaint Energon Divebomb for me. I always felt he was a homage to Banzai-tron with his head and general shape of his body. Plus both are portrayed as martial artists in various fictions.

    I did see a nice digibash of Armada Skywarp as B-tron once.

    Am I the only one who thinks ROTF Bludgeon/Banzai-tron is naff with the goofy skeleton head?

    I can't decide whether you're trying to see my point or just being funny which I kind of get.

    I've got both the BotCon and ROTF versions and dig them. Though, my mad love has to go to the BotCon one. The robot body and head fits the Action Master one really well as an homage, and since I like the original Mirage toy anyways it was an easy sell.

    I think he's a little fuzzy on what "naff" means. I know I am. :/

    Botcon Banzai-Tron is the sleeper hit of 2009. I think he's the perfect CUG BT...

    love the mold and all, cringe at the BotCon laden price.
    if i weren't living in a van, down by the river (so to speak) i'd buy at least 2.

    I prefer the Botcon BT for my classic themed collecttion. And IMHO it fits the character better.
