    The only downside to Voyager Bludgeon is that Thunderwing is smaller than him. The toy itself is fantastic and should be owned for any reason

    the one who looks like Bludgeon: the tank with the skull head and samurai armor.

    Voyager, easily. I bought two. One gets left alone as Movieverse Bludgeon (I don't mind the original head), and second one gets the Headrobots update as Classics Bludgeon.

    I have the Deluxe too since I bought the two-pack, and don't mind the mold, but it doesn't work as Bludgeon at all for me. I'm trying to figure out who to repurpose him as.

    Jesus, that sure is a one-sided poll.

    To be honest, none of the toys measure up to the comic book character I grew up having nightmares about, but the Voyager stays true to the design really well, so I guess it'd win because of that alone.

    Nothing against the deluxe, but it always seemed like a new age tank robot that happened to carry his name, and for that I never really took it as the same character.

    I like the deluxe. I especially love the pictures of the addons Headrobots has planned for him.

    Voyager Bludgeon any day. Even though he was never available through retail in Europe, I knew I had to have him, and so imported him at a premium. He's still on display, never regretted buying him.

    I voted deluxe. This however does come from the mindset that I just don't care about the character of Bludgeon. I do however like the Wreckage mold and think it looks great in the green and purple deco.

    I wasnt a big fan of the G1 character...

    An orange samurai tank alien robot...

    And even less of a fan of the Voyager class figure.

    I bought Banziatron and returned him. That mold is a mess...

    Great idea and cool features. But colors are to wild for me.


    I loved the M1 Wreckage mold and the ROTF color scheme works better for me.

    Though I do call him Stryker...

    Voted for voyager... for now. :wink: 

    Don't own a deluxe yet, but I do like the look of it with the HR upgrade.

    Voyager. I got him for the same reason I got ROTF The Fallen. I may not really like the character or even the toy that much but the idea's so unique I doubt we'll ever see something quite like it ever again.

    Aside from WM MP Skywarp, this figure was my first modern Transformer and got me back into collectiong.

    I agree he's not the nightmare skeletal warrior that he should be. But with the Blood upgrade, I'm very very very happy.

    Revoltech Bludgeon would be the only way to get the Marvel guy of my psyche's fears.

    I'm hoping Alternity Banzai-tron is wicked.

    Both.

    The deluxe version is my Movie Bludgeon, and stands alongside the movie figs. The Voyager is Classics Bludgeon, and stands with Classics.

    And yet, the Voyager repaint Banzaitron is my Movie Banzaitron, while Botcon Banzaitron stands alongside Classics as the Classics version of that character.

    That way I can have both characters in both universes, but not sharing a mold with each other. It works out pretty nicely, and is a good side-effect of the hybrid-y aesthetic quality of the Voyager mold.
