TFP RID Bulkhead
The FE Takara version of Bulkhead was a nice dark forest green and I have seen a few customs done in forest or British green. I see why now, since there aren't a lot of nice looking metallic greens to chose from (at least not at my local stores).
From what I can tell from the show screens I gathered though, Bulkhead is more of a lighter metallic green so I went with Model Masters citrus metallic green, then gave him a very light coat of a more vibrant transparent green.
From there I added in all of the details I could for screen accuracy, and here he is, my version of a more show accurate TFPRID Bulkhead.
I destroyed his stupid weapon, keeping only the wrecker ball and modifying it to fit snugly over his hand for... you guessed it, a more show accurate weapon look. In alt mode the ball can sit on the back of the SUV, more like the FE figure.
I found that the "wings" in bot mode can easily be removed and put back on for a more accurate look too, as seen in the first couple of photos.
Though this RID version has a less screen accurate chest then the FE figure, his shoulders are much more accurate and his size looks great with other PRID figs. I was pleasantly surprised how cool this guy is right out of the box.
Hope yall like what I did with him!
For anyone wondering, Bulkhead will be on Ebay tomorrow.

How did you mod the wrecking ball to fit over his hand?

You did a really nice job there. The way you've painted him makes me want to go buy him, but he looks more tall than round to me, and I don't know if I like that. The first Edition one has a much rounder look to him.
If it isn't too much trouble, could you please take a picture of Bulkhead from the side? I can't tell if this guy is flat or if he's got some thickness to him--how does he look from the back?

That's one pretty Bulkhead. I too would like to know more about how his wrecking ball attaches.
