    I figured everyone's favourite lovable lug needed an appreciation thread of his own since he's been through a lot this season and the chance that he may go offline. Anyway let's talk about why we like him and what are the things that he did on the show that are pretty cool. :) 

    I like how despite being more of a warrior this time around he still has that same gentle nature that we loved about him from Animated. :)

    Bulkhead's a pretty cool guy. He kills Vehicon, stealths inside and cripples warships, plays Marco Polo for keeps, beat on Breakdown, clobbered Megatron and has battled death and physics with true skill.

    Rock on, Bulkhead. Rock on.

    "Bulkhead may be...too large for this world, but his inner strength is without bounds. One should not be measured by size alone."

    I like Bulkhead and I really didn't like how every other thread that's central to him always seem to involve him dying or being dead. Seriously, what did he ever do anybody to actually warrant this?

    I especially love his girly scream. His voice actor seems like he's having a time of his life when he got Bulkhead to do that. And that's all I got to say for now.

    I always liked BH even though he's good a breaking things and is a little clumsy.

    I've always loved TFA Bulkhead since they annouced he would be vocied by Bill Faggerbakke (Patrick Star).

    He's not the brightest tool in the shead but he as heart and nowadays we need heart in Transformers more than ever.

    Prime Bulkhead is cool though not as much as I did in TFA.

    He's a fine character. I still want him to die though, in order to not make the events of "Toxicity" be pointless to me

    I'd appreciate him dying.

    I don't find this Bulkhead interesting. He's a boring, cliched brute whose personality is basically "durr hurr smash stuffs!". At least Animated Bulkhead was a different take on a guy that big.

    But damn his FE for not coming to the US!

    I love Bulkhead, but Toxicity . . .

    With ending with the same cliffhanger twice, and those deader-than-dirt flashback sequences, if Bulkhead somehow survives . . .

    God. I just love Bulkhead. That's it.

    I guess Bulkhead's okay. Albiet, there's really not much I find interesting about him, and his passion for little girls has always annoyed me, but I'll appreciate him sooner than I would, say, Arcee. However, I feel like the show hasn't really developed him into a character that I would like to know anything about. I just feel like his past is pretty vague and he has little dynamic, but, I don't dislike him. Most of the time.

    This fake-out with his death is irksome to me, though. It's already been said a million times that the twice-used cliffhanger has annoying, and I wouldn't really mind if he died (what would bother me is that the series would suddenly start revolving around the sorrow of his death), but like I said, he's still pretty cool. I at least like the Prime Bulkhead much more than the Animated. The Animated just annoyed me.

    Thanks for making this thread. I've let it be known quite a few times that Bulkhead is my favorite 'Bot in the show, next to Ratchet. Nice to be seeing him getting some more appreciation. I still want to know what vehicle he transforms into.

    So does anyone else think that Bulkhead has some traces of Ironhide in his design? I mean his character's a bit like him but not so much though the way his robot and alt mode look do give out a bit of the movie Ironhide vibe.

    I don't see Ironhide at all in his design. He just looks like Animated Bulkhead with less back kibble

    Bulkhead rocks. I'd like to have the real version of his alt mode as a daily driver.

    Don't you mean: "Scraplets! Why did it have to be Scraplets?!"

    Seriously, this Bulkhead is an awesome character! He's clumsy, passionate, fun, a bit of a dork because he has the 'I am so dumb' silliness to him, and he's an awesome character. He might be a bit dumb, but he's a powerful character and he's smart enough to even give Starscream a run for his money.

    I mean, come on! He got his energon drained by the Energon Harvestor, and he still kicked Starscream's ass! Go Bulkhead!

    I hope he doesn't die, because I really love his character and his girly scream. That always made me laugh.

    "Did you just scream like a little girl?"
