    Okay - I can see a case for both, do you actually have confirmation either way?

    It totally is based on the ROTF Voyager Bludgeon toy. It has the side missile racks, the turret, and even the hatch and viewing port on top, along with the grey barrel that's obviously pulled out as a sword. Just missing the headlight to the right of the cannon barrel's base.

    This is one way to immortalize the toy, considering the sad case of melting (the surrounding hard plastic) rubber treads issue that it has.

    I strongly think it's Bludgeon. Like Mojorn said it's a dead ringer for that toy. Plus...I want Bludgeon more than Brawl XD
    But also this design is very generic turret. Wouldn't be surprised if it's another Megatron. ;)  Well have to wait and see, i hope you guys are right though.

    I never got into the TCG, in fact I'm trying to sell my wave 1 cards, but I want that Crystal of Power Card purely because that is the plot device from my favorite G1 episode, Fire on the Mountain.

    I totally didn't get the reference, but this seems like an interesting mechanic. On the one hand, it's vulnerable to bashing shields that most decks run, as well as sabotage armaments that most control decks run.

    On the otherhand, Hunkering down into +3 weapons seems really nice!

    Ummmmm....good.....?

    I used this guy in my best wave 1 deck...I am the only SergeantKup fan...but he wasn't doing much other than being something to hit.

    Is this good? It doesn't fix the problem that he never did alot of damage and his once high armor score, isn't worth much any more. And you need to get three upgrades on a character with only 8 life. To un-tap him maybe twice a game. I was looking forward to a fix on him and jazz but this doesnt seem like enough and this Stratagem would be better suited on a character with natural high attack and low defensive, or a car. Maybe if you set him up with that new hybrid crystal ? And some how don't have it removed.

    If you can believe it, I think this makes him worse? Someone you got to tell me i'm wrong on this one.

    I think it should have him equipped with 2 upgrades, not all 3.

    If you're playing against Kup with this Stratagem, play Espionage to look for a Full LoadOut and discard it.

    I hope that someone catches the typo before the text file gets sent to the printer.

    So 3 headmasters in and I’m still not overly impressed with their stats. 11 stars for a 7/12/0 or 6/12/2 just seems off. I feel like bodies are to high by about 1 or 2 stars

    They are meant to be. Remember that bodies all have built in forcefields essentially. After you KO the body, the owner gets one more attack with the head, that ability is really powerful so the stars are added as a valuation of that ability.

    From a straight stats count. I can agree with that. The high price comes from being able to customize a single bot now. Which I think were going to see alot of play with.
