    Okay, we've gotten two very awesome Voyager toys made in ROTF called Bludgeon and Mindwipe. Some may remember the original G1 versions as two of the three members of the Chaos_Trinity, the last being Bugly. My question is, why haven't we gotten a movie Bugly?

    My questions to you are: How should it be done? What features would be cool? What size class should it be? Personally, I think a way to attach Scout Class Insecticon to him would be cool!

    Hopefully as a Voyager for the DOTM line, even if it is a retool of something else with a new head...

    Bugly didn't do anything in that story, which is the only story in which he was anything other than a mook. He had one line and zapped someone.

    I mean, I get why someone would want a new Bugly. I just don't get why it matters that he was in the Chaos Trinity. With his one line.

    It's just something to tie him to other releases, that's all. Hasbro is always looking for ways to make a bio more interesting. Maybe here he is an apprentice of Bludgeon and Mindwipe, who have recently formed an alliance?

    I want him as a redeco of Seaspray with a new head?

    Why Seaspray?

    Bludgeon - land-based vehicle mode.
    Mindwipe - air-based vehicle mode.
    Bugly - sea-based vehicle mode.

    It'd be nice for that little cluster to be rounded out.

    I mostly agree. War Within was the best thing Dreamwave made, but it didn't really stop Bugly from being a nobody in my eyes.

    I do -kinda- like him though. Not for the Chaos Trinity, but for the 'martial arts trinity.' Bludgeon has metallikato, Banzai-Tron has crystallocution, and Bugly has circuit-su (and they all have B names!)

    I always thought Bugly was a cybertron type jet. I'd love him to get a new voyager mold.

    I've got a better plan for Seaspray: a Longtooth remold!

    Hmm... I can see Bugly being updated as an old cargo helicopter.

    Heh, I'm always up for late-80s 'cons getting new molds, but I'd rather see Krok or Treadshot. Or some kind of radical reinterpretation of Octopunch.

    I'm imagining Furman coming up with the name "Chaos Trinity" and deciding who'd be in there. "Bludgeon? Definitely! Creepy martial arts type. Mindwipe? Brilliant! Strange ineffable mind powers. Uh...ok, who else is out there.? Need one more. *flips through old character profiles and collector's guides.* Sod this, I'll toss some darts at a board and see what that gets me!"

    :p 

    (I don't mean to rant, but I've had this on my mind for awhile and was looking for a thread to post it in. As another "Seinfeldian" TF observation, you ever notice that there is a 100% correlation between "red and white Lamborghini alt mode" and "paranoia as defining character trait"? Who decided THAT anyway?)

    Whoever did clearly fucked up, as there's no paranoia in the bios for Clamp Down, Atlas and Universe Inferno. Yes, I did look up on the TFWiki just to see if your statement was accurate. I'm just a little bit mad.

    Back on the subject, I couldn't give two shits about Bugly. If he got a new toy that wasn't a redeco/retool of something I already have, yeah, I'd buy it (if it was a good toy). But he's not a character I'd want a toy for. That's Scrounge's territory.

    I don't really care what size or alt.mode he would be, I just want the trinity reunited atlast.

    Personally I want IDW Bombburst repainted from Cybertron Starscream and Iguanus from Cybertron Ransack with a head remold. Since Skullgrin is on the way, that would round up another one of Bludgeon's gangs.

    Movie Incinerator would be good as Bugly.

    I still want to see Classics Jetfire as Cloudburst's inner bot.
