    I gotta know which one ya'll prefer.

    I just got Banzaitron for $24 complete, in open box, no instructions from the comic shop around the corner.

    I've satisfied by him but, I want to know which one ya'll prefer..

    and does Banzaitron have any 3rd party upgrades? I see they were supposed to have some, but I can't actually find them..

    I prefer Bludgeon. Mainly because he was one toy I wanted back in the day but never got. Banzai-tron is good too but on the ROTF mold, the colors just dont look as good.

    Personally I prefer the mold as Bludgeon. And for Banzaitron I've been using the Botcon version which really suits him. Not sure about upgrades for Banzaitron though.

    I like it as either, to be fair, I have both, and I like both color schemes, if anything, maybe Banzai-tron's a little more.

    Bludgeon

    I know some peeps say BT is better, but I just cant wrap my head around it. Something about the color choices on bludgeon are like Peas and carrots. The green and orange go together SO well, That normally I would have disassembled him by now and painted all the "stupid colored parts green"...NOPE...not with Bludgeon...its just a KICK ASS combo all around. The ONLY thing I wish they did was put a green hard plastic handle so the main gun looks uniform. But That dont even bother me much.

    Bludgeon FTW

    I can really appreciate the attention to the samurai nature of both characters, but the mold was made specifically for Bludgeon, and I feel mostly the same was a brr-icy here.

    I like and have both. But I have to agree that it's a Bludgeon mold. If i had to go one, i would say him.

    I could never find Bludgeon in stores, so I picked up Banzaitron as a consolation prize. I think his colors work more when it comes to his tank mode. The grey & green work better together then green & orange. Plus the bloody skull face looks cool. Could be re-purposed as Marvel Crossovers Red Skull to MC Captain America.

    Though I like Banzaitron's deco more, I prefer Bludgeon between the two. The Headrobots upgrade puts Bludgeon over the top.

    Both are fantastic but I like Banzaitron more. His weapons are painted and the red skull looks way better.

    I have both and it's a toss up personally between the two. Bludgeon is the original yes but Banzaitron works just as well.

    I actually do like the colors for Banzai-tron's tank form, but the robot is pretty atrocious imo.

    The mold is obviously meant to be Bludgeon and works perfectly so; however I like Banzaitron's colors on the mold more.

    Winner by category

    Tank: Banzaitron
    Robot: Bludgeon

    I find banzaitrons more urban tank deco more realistic. While blugeon has the more comic book styled insanity to his robot mode. Zombie Samurai Robot Leader of the Decepticons.
