Personally, I want a Banzaitron head. He craves one, but this Bludgeon is good, rationalities be damned.
This. I like Bludgeon's head, it works for him. While it can kinda works of Banzai-tron it favors Bludgeon much more.
The only I really want are the swords for Bludgeon, so I don't have to deal with the real ones bending out of shape all the time.
So true. I want it just as much for the sword as I do the head. Although I do agree that the existing head works pretty well, but it'll be nice to have the option to go G1 slavish regardless of how much sense it makes. For the price, this is pretty impossible for me to pass up. I really love these head upgrades we're seeing recently(Hardhead, Venksta's customs, etc). I too wonder how they're going to handle chroming the sword and not have the turret scrape it all off. The description at BBTS says it has a "finish".
I posted in the kitbash forum, but wanted to follow up here too because I remember it being a topic in a thread in the normal discussion forum:
I recently bought a Super Robot Red Baron gashapon which came with a jetpack that the figure *has* to wear in order to balance the standing pose. Problem was the jetpack was bent into all weird positions. So I boiled some water, dipped the parts, and was able to form it back into its original shape.
While I was doing this, I remembered Bludgeon's sword, and gave it a good hot water boil dip. The sword went limp as a noodle for a bit, and it quickly cooled back into a straight shape. I thought that might have worked, but over the course of the day, it started bending back into a "C", although not as bad. So I gave it another boil dip, only this time after it was shaped straight, I put it in the freezer, and pulled it out of there about an hour later. That was a few days ago, and the sword appears to have held its straight shape since.
