    Oh man, he looks fucking glorious. He'll look great with Bludgeon. :D 

    Although, it would have been nice to at least get a new head sculpt, but no biggie.

    The colors look cool on the mold but I'd definitely prefer a new head at least. No big deal though.

    I'm curious what his Swords are going to be like. The pic of him looks like his sword is painted, making me think they might use a different plastic this time.

    I have a loose policy on buying repaints of classics figures, in that I don't buy repaints unless the characters were repaints in G1 (Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen) or significant remolding has occurred (Sunstreaker/Sideswipe/Red Alert, Drift/Blurr). This paintjob is testing my very standards.

    I've got a similar philosophy, though certain molds have caused me to break that rule more than once (the ROTF scouts being the most recent offenders). This one might be a similar situation, but I'll wait for in-hand pics before deciding to buy it.

    I'm a lot more loose in my repaint rules regarding movie figs, to tell the truth.

    DUDE!! That PWNS Bludgeon in the face. Seriously, the face of that sculpt looks a bajillion times better now. Nice job Hasbro.

    Looks pretty good. Not sure if I'll buy it as I don't really care for ROTF Bludgeon.

    Colour scheme is different, but I wouldn't say better. I still don't get the love for this mold.

    Of course it'd help if they'd actually release Bludgeon over here already, but I've never seen a picture where it didn't look clumsy and awkward.

    I have Bludgeon, so I'll probably pass unless I see him on sale.
