    Bludgeon was for sure
    and this is the best repaint of that optimus mold, at least in my opinion

    Yeah, Bludgeon was kind of a big deal, especially if you ever read Furman's later G1 Marvel comics. It's well worth having, although the final figure is probably better in concept than execution. I find the headsculpt somewhat lacking, and the samurai armour concept ends up being a bit cumbersome and hinders articulation.

    But this is all forgivable when you have such an unexpectedly dedicated homage and such an ambitious, one-of-a-kind mold.

    And I definitely remember there being more hype over that version of the 2007 Optimus voyager, but I was happy enough with the original. I didn't bother at the time, and at this stage I don't feel the need for it. In terms of accuracy, it's been surpassed, but as a toy the figure is well-made and satisfying, with an ingeniously designed automorph feature, and an original transformation. As far as I'm aware, the holodriver gimmick is unique. It was an innovative time for Transformers.

    And Deluxes too.

    (Slug/Slag is gone and so is (Voyager) Grimlock)

    The Battletrap wave of legends figures is in Ken Black Carlow along with wave 1 deluxes and voyagers.
    Just be aware if picking up the roadtrap figure that some have two of the same windscreen piece. Didn't notice until I got home that my roadtrap figure has two right side windscreen pieces, which sucks.
    If anyone gets unlucky and winds up with a figure that has two left pieces, hit me up and we can do a swap.

    Indeed. I was lucky enough to get there just as they were putting them on the shelves. Was pleasantly surprised

    Picked up Stinger. They're €25 each

    Toymaster beside Jervis St are knee deep in WV2 POTP legends.

    They also have more of Slug and Grimlock.

    Have the POTP Leaders been spotted anywhere? Outside of seeing some POTP Voyagers in Smyths I have not really seen much POTP at all.

    I don't think the leaders have been seen anywhere. Just deluxes and voyagers in Smyths, and then the wave two legends and wave one prime-masters showed up in Toymaster on Jervis Street

    Toymaster had POTP leaders briefly.

    They also have 1 studio Grimlock (nice deco) and two studio Starscreams

    Ooh, nice. Hopefully Starscream's still there by Monday. I'm guessing they were the same price as the TLK voyagers?

    Nope. 38.00

    Paramount want their cut too.

    Didn't look at leader prices - i'd already ordered them elsewhere.

    Picked up the last Studio Series Starscream in Toymaster Jervis today

    No other Studio Series stuff, but plenty of POTP deluxes, voyagers, legends, and Prime-Masters, as well as the usual RID and Rescue Bots stuff

    Got POTP Voyager Starscream, first TF in a while. Better than I expected given the mainly negative reaction, like the robot mode and especially the combiner mode. The jet is not great, mainly because it doesn't transform all that much to get there.

    Got it in Smyths Carrickmines, they only had Starscream and Grimlock in terms of POTP, didn't see the deluxes.

    Studio Series Voyagers are starting to appear in Smyths.

    Jervis St only had one of each though... they may be limited.

    And those of you waiting for Smyths to stock Studio Series Leaders... they prob wont.
