See the in-package pics of the upcoming Banzai-Tron HERE.
No bio? Looking forward to that.
Woah, I completely forgot that they are packaging Voyagers in Robot Mode now. That looks awesome!
Still looking pretty good. It's interesting to see them now packaging all the Voyager class figures in bot-mode. Wouldn't surprise me if this trend continues on for Prime's and TF3's toylines.
If I'm not mistaken, they've relocated the bio's for the Voyagers to one of the sides.
I want to see the side of the box!
I'm passing since I'm happy with Botcon Banzaitron but that does look pretty cool packaged in bot mode like that.
Looks like the dagger is being packaged separately inside the box, so can we assume the sword is,too? Maybe that'll prevent some of the bending and warping that Bludgeon's sword suffered from.
As much as I didn't think I was gonna buy this repaint, the more I see, the more I am really liking it. The colorscheme looks great, and the face doesn't look all that terrible in red. Plus he fits on the classics shelf, so that is a big win.
The knife looks painted. If so, it's gonna look like crap after cramming it into his hands a few times. Probably the same with the sword.
I keep going back and forth on it. My Bludgeon's hand broke. I will either get this guy, or get a second Bludgeon and keep the first one in tank mode.
I'd be surprised if it wasn't the blades that were painted, and the handle's were the color the swords are molded in. The blade color appears to be the same paint used for the crest on his forehead.
Didn't think of that, but then the sheaths might scratch the paint. Hmm...
As much as a plain plastic sword/knife looks cheap, it miht be a lose/lose situation.
Looking good. Still not getting though. Botcon Banzaitron is all the Banzaitron I need.
This is one of those molds that I enjoy so much, that I'll probably end up buying it, when normally I stay away from repaints.
Very, very cool. I am liking this packaging design quite a bit.
Like the packaging design, not sure about packing them in robot mode. It's definitely more eye-catching than vehicle mode but I liked the figure being "in disguise", as it were, until freed from it's plastic prison.
Still undecided on Banzaitron, though. A great mold but this repaint is mediocre; might get it on sale at some point.
I dig the packaging design and the fact they're packaging in robot mode.
I definitely want this. That away I can keep Banzai in alt mode and Bludgeon in bot mode (and vice versa) for display purposes.
LOL Someone has the rights to the name Banzaitron so Hasbro couldn't use the name without 'Decepticon' in front of it?
Ugh, I really wish August would hurry up and get here. I have not gotten a new Transformer toy in like months. This is really killing me man.
