    Just got Blastwave yesterday and he's pretty fun. :)

    You can angle his back cannons however you like.

    [​IMG]

    Or you can take them off of his back and use them as a handheld gun.

    Tank turrent can rotate a full 360.

    [​IMG]

    His sword can store on either side of his tank treads where this peg hole is.

    Or you can store it on top of the tank turrent.

    Nice. I'll probably wait for the Bludgeon release, but it's got my interest. Thanks for the pics.

    Yup, he's a remold from the waist up. (He also has new knee pads)

    Those elbows don't look like they'll stand the test of time. Such weak looking 'ratchet' joints.
    I do like the cannons, but the tank mode seems like an afterthought.
    I have Megatronus, and it isn't terrible. If I see this as Bludgeon and have nothing else to spend some money on, I may pick it up.

    Those exposed hands in alt mode. Ouch.

    Too bad, too, because I love the rest of how he looks. I guess when Bludgeon shows up if I can nab him for cheap I will.

    Looks good. Thanks for the pics. If these RID toys weren't $19 in my neck of the woods I might pick it up.

    Blastwave and Bludgeon are twin brothers, but choose different paths. One for good the other for evil.

    I wish that Hasbro would've given him the head that was on his artwork. It would've further made this guy pre-Bludgeon, and that would've been an insta-buy from me. As he is though, he's just a wrong colored Bludgeon to me.

    He's pretty nice, but in hand it's Bludgeon. Seems weird to use him as an Autobot with exactly Bludgeon's ripped-off face/skull.

    He'll be Banzaitron to me.

    Got mine today.

    I like him. I bet his face being Bludgeon's was just them being lazy like Scatterspike, not too surprising. Could always pretend he's just wearing an imposing battle mask or maybe a twin or went to the same Metallikato school?

    I liked the Megatronus mold, so this is pretty cool too even if the fists aren't hidden very well. I also don't like the lack of swivel wrists, especially when a character comes with a sword, but he's fairly poseable with the waist and shoulders.

    I look very forward to the Bludgeon repaint.

    The same thing happened with Scatterspike, she has a different head on the show and card art, but her figure is just a direct Quillfire repaint.

    The Bludgeon head is the only reason I didn't pick him up, but if he'd had the head in the artwork, he would've been an instant buy from me.


    Ah well.

    If he weren't half in Bludgeon's colors already, I'd pick him up just for being different. But the fact he's mostly green just makes him look like "weird Bludgeon." Seriously, change that green to silver, black, white, red, purple (SKELETOR!)... I'd buy this in a heartbeat.

    But as-is, easy pass. I just don't get why they didn't make him more distinct from his obvious repaint.
