    I had it pre-ordered but decided to cancel it because I didn't want to keep waiting around for it and I felt like it was going to keep getting pushed back.

    The guys making it is busy working on other stuff as well, Powerglide and Wheelie. So probably just busy. At least I think I'm remembering right. What am I doing here? Who are all you people? Where is my breakfast?

    Maybe because of the Gyro kit exclusive and then the Stronghold exclusive for TFCon... I like my Hothead upgrade, but that company is gonna "exclusive" themselves right out of friggin business. I can't imagine that BBTS etc would want to carry items that folks cancel due to them not arriving in a reasonable time.

    I thought someone who was at BotCon said Headrobots told them it would be out in August and that the delay is due to the chrome for the swords.

    Different groups. Those Jizaitoys "reproductions" are being done by the guys who do the high-quality KOs of the Japanese Headmasters, not Headrobots.

    Indeed. By then it will have been 9 months since it first went up for order. I hope it will be worth the wait.

    Well I hope the Head for the voyager Bludgeon sells great because if it doesn't I have a feeling we won't see the kit for the deluxe Bludgeon.

    Where did you get that info? I know the person making themdiecast wheelie and powerglide and people from headrobots, they are not the same people. Chances are they are waiting on something that they can gang mold with bludgeon in order to save money on molds.

    ya know atleast their trying to fix the flaw with the chrome, because if they released it to us with messed up chrome we would freakin' never let them hear the end of it.

    It sounds like their atleast trying to give us a good quality product.
    anyone have good images of what this bludgeon is supposed to look like?

    I cancelled my pre-order for it, as well, a few weeks ago. The price wasn't that much but, with Exgraver and the FP Insecticons coming out soon, it was ~$17 that I could put to better use...plus, the wait was starting to get on my nerves. If this had come out a few months ago, I would have thought nothing of buying it, but not now.

    True, but it's been 9 months. If they haven't figured it out yet, will they? I'll stick it out because I think it will make Bludgeon look much better.
