    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.
