Sonar and Dirge are bought on sight, also can't wait for Mindwipe and Sky Stalker. Bludgeon is the first 'con I will have no problem passing up, he looks like something out of animated IMO with that face, hat, and goofy looking samurai inspired armor. Most other movie figures don't have quite that deliberate detailing, they look believable as living alien robots, but he just looks to 'cartoon' to fit into this movie universe... Ghost Rider/Samurai/Tank? EPIC FAIL!

I think that's the point. Bludgeon is not so much a movie toy as it is a Universe toy snuck into the movie toy line.

I agree that the bludgeon is not a movie figure it really doesn't fit at all, and is more a classics/universe figure. seems strange to be placed in the movie line but that's Hasbro for you milk the hell out of the line till its dead and buried till the next films in production.

Not Feeling Cannon Bumblebee redeco too much. It looks like all they did was paint the front of the cannons red and change some of his robot mode's coloring, and gave him a battle mask. (Was hoping for a black & yellow redeco similar to the Black Ez-Collection exclusive.) Nest Bumblebee's head sculpt is totally adorable. :lol

 

Cool that we're getting a Black Soundwave of our own. :D Brakedown, still bought. Squidhead Dirge is bought, too.

 

Tuner Mudflap needs a G1-esqe Ironhide head. :lol

 

Good stuff, all around.

While some of these look kinda cool, most of them just don't "Do it" for me; especially considering that they're passing on some of the robots that were actually in the film in favor of these.

 

In fact, I'm going on ROTF toy-buying strike until Elita-Flareup comes out or they put out that leader starscream.

yeah there is something severly off with Bludgeon.

 

The legends are a pass. I stopped buying them a while ago, but Wheelie does look intresting.

 

Weapon Ironhide is on the list, same as the new mold deluxes and the Black Soundwave.

 

Outside of Soundwave and the Ironhide retool (and maybe Sonar), all the repaints are a easy pass.

Man I was hoping the new ratchet would be in here. My rescue ratchet broke, so i need a new ratchet. He's the only movie autobot I don't have now. I'll pass on bludgeon as well. I don't mind the toonish styling, but he just looks like another universe galvatron nightmare. Also I picked up gears last week, mostly cuz I never got stockade last time around. His colors are not that bright!! Everything is more subdued and looks much better than these pics suggest. The deco on his vehicle mode is in a darker, almost grey color-not allspark blue.
