    I keep looking at bulkhead, and wonder to myself, what would he look like if he were of a fairly normal build compared to the other autobots, and then I went a step further and wondered what he could've looked like in the G1 toon. So what I did is looked at a couple still shots from the "training" scene in episode 6 with prowl and bulkhead, and hand-drew based on those alone, then scanned it and edited from there. Not quite Hound, but not far from it imho. Sorry, but I'm cheap and use MSPaint, get over it, lol.

    Thar ya go:

    also, incase you can't tell from the pic, no the eyes aren't crooked, the head is supposed to be at a slight tilt to the right.

    Also this was a rush job because it's so late, but I'll clean it up later.

    more of an amalgam of the generalized s3 design and the animated design really, but you pretty much nailed it. what's really fun is painting him red, he looks almost like ironhide.

    Pretty cool, but he doesn't look at all like Bulkhead. (Most of his character came from the animation style. That jaw especially looks way out of place, though)

    Very nice "what if" drawing, though.

    He looks good, but to make him look more G1ish, then you gotta make him more blocky. I think the only TFs from G1 that were more round were the Sharkticons, Galvitron, Cyclonus, Scourge and the Sweeps.

    I'm just saying... it seems that Bulkhead is one of the only animated characters who utilizes the Animated style as part of the character. (ie., Prime can still look like Prime and BB still looks like BB)

    It's not an insult, but I worded it wrong.

    Sorry if I offened the OP, twas not my intent.
