Were they highly sought after?
Not following much on newer Transformers nowadays.
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.
Power of the Primes in stock in Smyths Limerick. Heading in to town later to check them out.
