    Okay, right off the bat, I'm not happy with how this turned out. But, I'm never really happy with how my stuff turns out, so take that however you will. Great way to build up anticipation for it, LOL.

    Anyway, on to the details...

    Since Bludgeon is simply a shell, I didn't even bother with trying to find a robotic form that would resemble the G1 figure. The original figure (both toy and comic) was more humanoid than anything else, so I used a Venom: Unleashed figure as the base. For the head, I used a Terminator skull and a TMNT Shredder helmet.

    For the armor, I used various bits & pieces. The mini-bot "tank" mode is from Universe Cyclonus' targetmaster gun, and parts of a KO combiner set. In the end, it was more of a powermaster-type than a shell (but by connecting to the back of the "shell", it powers up and tank-Bludgeon assumes control, so...eh, whatever :D  ).

    I know you can still see some of the Venom webbing, but I just say it's Cybertronian chain-mail. Also, I know it's supposed to be a Samurai sword, but I'm having a hell of a time finding one that fits the scale, so this'll have to do. :D 

    So, with that out of the way, enjoy! Comments & critiques are welcome.

    I think you're being too hard on yourself, dude. I think it came out nice, and it's got some really cool parts on it (love that shield!). If you're not satisfied with it, I'd simply suggest tallying it up as a learning experience. Do some more things, and revisit the project to make me one :) 

    Keep up the good work, man :thumb

    It think it turned out awesome. I would display it.
    Only flaw I find is the sword and I wish you luck in finding a better one to bring this all together.
    The webbing isnt "cybtronian chain mail" lol. At least when I look at it sorta reminds me of the messed up organic shell from the Stormbringer comic and also hints at Gen 2 comics.
    Dunno if you have seen them but it shows cybertronians like splitting apart or soemthing and they are all purple. . . yeah reminds me of that.

    Also even though the tank mode is hurtin a little the robot mode for your Bludgeon rocks.
