    Ebay:
    I would buy whoever you feel is a better toy. But I would have to say buy Shockwave because he is an older toy and may be harder to find later on while Bludgeon is still new.

    Shockwave/Longarm, nab him while you can! Bludgeon is cool, but he'll most likley get a repaint (evidence points to that repaint being named Banzai-Tron), so avaliability for the mold shouldn't be a problem.

    But with TFA over and done with, once Shocky is gone, he's gone for good!

    It's kind of hard for me to choose between the two of them. I really like Animated, and have wanted shockwave for a really long time.
    On the other hand, I like most of my movie toys, and hate others ( I'm lookin at you mixmaster) but i've heard so many great things about BLudgeon I just don't know what to do.

    Both are good figures... both are must-haves.

    I'd say Animated Shockwave... depends on whether you're getting the Hasbro or Takara version. If it's the Hasbro version, then you should get him now and get ROTF Bludgeon later. If it's the Takara version, then you can wait on getting him and get ROTF Bludgeon now. Also, it depends on if you're getting the gray or purple version of Animated Shockwave, both versions which I recommend.

    ROTF Bludgeon will still be around, but if you want the Hasbro version of Animated Shockwave, I recommend getting him now because otherwise he'll be hard to find later on unless you get the Takara version.

    I have ALOT of Animated, and my collection is mostly Animated/ Movie/ Unicron Trilogy.

    My collection Doesn't have much of a "theme" but I do organize my figures according to the lines they are in.

    Thanks guys, I have a birthday soon, so I'll use my money I get then to get a Bludgeon.

    On a side note, I think I made way too much posts at once on this thread!

    I agree with everyone in saying that Shockwave is a good choice because he won't be available new for much longer. And he's a very cool, fun figure as well. So is Bludgeon, but my Walmart has like 10 of him on the shelf now.

    I would definitely try to end up with both, as they're both great figures. But if you can get Shockwave new now, I'd go with him first.

    I have both, and bludgeon actually got boring for me in about a week.

    I still mess with animated shockwave, despite getting him when he came out. his transformations are actually fun, and all his modes look great.
