    Fair enough, I did read about the issues with the plastic and rubber reacting.

    I reckon MMC could remould/rework Kultur into a decent Bludgeon. Or maaaaybe we'll get one in Kingdom :)

    Thanks! Sadly, Amazon's decided that it can't be delivered to my location, so I'll settle for the one I've got preordered with Rung, from ID, whenever that materialises...

    I'm pretty much past wanting to get the coneheads, but if this was a Selects release I'd be all over his campy 90s ass.

    Hftd Bludgeon is a good voyager, who i use, from the rotf line, though be wary, his tank treads can dissolve and break. You're other option would be the deluxe rid15 figure.

    Managed to squeeze a nice scorponok display in.

    Yeah it’s a real shame because it’s a cracking figure all in all. A remold from Kultur would be amazing, never thought of that. I’ve had my eye on the Warrior RID one because for me I don’t mind if he’s a bit of a smaller guy, but big isn’t too bad. I’d go for a large voyager KO of the RID version if one becomes available.

    When copied in with a post directed at an entirely different thread member in conversation, this sure could read as a Pass Agg "Shut up, you!" but I'm sure that's not at all what you intended. ;) 
    Really, it looks like it's gone live again to me but only three left? Typical Amazon shenanigans!
    Never suited Thundercracker IMHO I mean, come on, if you were gonna have a Seeker called "Acid Storm", yeah? I mean COME ON, just look at him!
    Get it together, Hasbro! :p 

    EDIT: And now it sez 14 available, go, Lads, GO!!!

    Cheers, brother.

    I am half-holding back on Astrotrain because I have the Fanstoys version on PO, but then again know this is a different beast altogether. He just looked the same size as ER Grapple.

    DD is just getting lots of neg press for his legs lol. He did look more substantial than the other leaders in package, truth be told!

    Haha - just one Rung is enough for me. I want to do this fan mode Spacebridge with Slitherfangs but one will need 8 for it. I will be 2 fangs short for this after my IDT order is processed:

    Gonna eventually get that game! And I'd love a WFC Bludgeon.
    ...

    There's 8 Slitherfangs on Amazon US last I checked (I've mine pre-ordered all round, so...)

    Irritatingly, they DID do an OSKO of Megatronus, from the same mold, but not Bludgeon. I'd have gone for that too. Grrr.

    I'm far from the world's biggest Conehead fan, even though I had them and not the Seekers as a nipper, but I have to say the two-pack looks bloody great. One niggle, though - why didn't they give them the correct missiles/guns -the fat ones for Ramjet and the thinner ones for Dirge - instead of the generic Seeker weapons? Tsk.
