    Bludgeon. Though, I'll admit I don't really like Mindwipe, but there's no specific reason why really. Bludgeon on the other hand, I really do like; in fact he's one of two movieverse figures on display right now. (Baron Ransack Von Joy is the other)

    Mindwipe. Much better toy than Bludgeon imo, especially if you can get Skystalker as well.

    I would go with Bludgeon as well and much like Pravus, I don't really like Mindwipe. I have probably had him in my hand 15 times and passed. I keep looking at him and don't see where he is going to fit into my collection. For me he doesn't fit in with the movie figs or the classics and just looks strange. Bludgeon is a great update IMO, and I wasn't even sold on him off the bat till I started looking at the pictures from old comics that I saw online. I think he works great with the classics.

    They're both decent, but I like Bludgeon way more than Mindwipe. Bludgeon is just pure win. Mindwipe is just ok.

    Both if you can. If not my vote is for Mindwipe. Just depends on what you like though.

    I agree.

    If you forced me to pick one I'd go with Mindwipe because of my love for Decepticon jets...but I love the whole NEST line and these two are my favorites from it.

    Both of these figures are must haves in my opinion. Bludgeon's design really brings back the feeling of the old marvel character. I never really liked the pretender concept, but I loved his character's portrayal in the comics. This mold gives me the classic look of the character in a purely robot form. Mindwipe was such an obscure character from G1. Again, I don't like the headmaster concept now in my "old age". His robot mode keeps the bat feel. His alt mode is very sleek as well. I do have Skystalker, but I'm not fond of the combined mode. I also plan on getting Banzai-Tron along with any Mindwipe repaint.

    As of right now, both ROTF Bludgeon and Mindwipe are in my top five favorite non G1 figures. Also, they are in my top ten favorites of all time.

    BTW, if money is an issue on whether or not you get both, brown bag lunch for a week or corn flakes for supper for a week should free up enough to get both.

    Both are excellent, I prefer Bludgeon more, But then again, I have a thing for tank-bots.

    I picked up Bludgeon last month. But I really perfer Mindwipe. The problem is I can't him anywhere.

    Of course I can order him from HTS, but I don't want to pay the high shipping charges. But I will do it as a last resort.
