    Dangit, you may have just sold me on this. Maybe I'll trade an SG G2 Optimus or Kick-Over for one...

    Your photos really make this figure shine on its own terms, out from under the hadow of the G1 figure a bit at least! ;)  As Sinnertwin said, the head is very prominent, like looking at that of MP-1 after taking a good look at MP-10 lol. That said, if someone - or other - does come up with a third party upgrade set for this guy, chances are it'll bulk him up and bring the relative proportions of the head down. Either that or perhaps Headrobots will deliver a kit with one or more options for smaller/more G1 heads anyway, plus a sturdier sword and with any luck a ranged weapon that somehow transforms/incorporates into the tank mode.

    Like others have suggested too, the botmode pics really give this guy a boost in my opinion too; the first one looks imposing, and the second looks like he's wading into the thick of melee combat!

    They did have an Ultra Class repaint in the 2010 G2 Redux set, Clench. Also, I actually like this guy more than I did before. I will say though that Bludgeon is the only character this mold really fits, but then again you need the Headrobots kit too.

    While I'll admit that a third party kit for this guy would go a long way I still gotta say, once I got him home and set him up next to classics Megatron, Energon skorponok, and Rid Megatron (standing in for the botcon 05 Deathsaurus that I don't have yet) he looks smashing. All we need now is a proper Violin Jagger homage and my Emperors of Destruction shelf will be complete.


    The tnk mode looks gorgeous, I don't mind the samurai armour motif of the mold. But he really needs some new feet, a gun, and half a jet to latch onto his arm. Cuz quite honestly, I don't think samurai when I think Overlord.

    Final opinion. Mediocre, for the time being. But worth holding onto

    Once again TJ Great pics as always

    I think the head adds alot of refreshing to the staleness of a mold ive seen alot of.

    Bludgeon is one seriously kick ass Voyager. I dont agree Banzai is better than bludgeon, but to each their own.

    I sure as hell get an overlord feel from him. I can easily see a 3rd party make some sort of Jet toy, that can clip on the back, and TF into some osrt of little addon, such as a gun station or even a Throne.

    How cool would THAT be? A jet, That can clip on his back or chest for "powered up" mode, and then it TFs into his freakin Throne.

    - Ty for the photo compliments. It's really appreciated. And yea man, I would definitely like a kit that bulks up his arms especially

    Np!

    Yea, I'm excited to see what comes up for him, upgrade-wise too.

    Dude, a jet that turns into a thrown for him would be INSANE.
