Really, the entire combiner sub set really nails some great homages, except for the questionable Bludgeon (sorry, guys).
Yeah, I kinda wish it had been a Thunderwing from Cyclonus (if doable, that is), since he interacted with all four of these Mayhem Deluxes in the Matrix Quest.
Bludgeon, however, didn't come into the (U.S.) comic until after all four of the other guys stopped appearing.
What? Bludgeon's first appearance is in "Yesterday's Heroes," in which the Mayhem Attack Squad is introduced to the US comic, a story which sets off the Matrix Quest from which the above panel is from. He's, like, in the two issues immediately prior to the story featuring the above image.
