    Its Transformers, scale hardly means a thing when it comes to toys. Lazerback and Ripclaw are in the deluxe class and the Predacon Twinstrike in a CV figure.

    It is a normal Smokescreen, basically. The 'Shadow Quill Armor' obviously is detachable, and need never go any where near him once you've taken him out the package.

    think I rather stick with my Arms Micron Smokescreen. But if the front armor is removable to look like regular Smokescreen I'd get him.

    First thought:
    PLEASE BE NORMAL
    Second thought:
    RAAAAGE
    Third thought:
    Could I make my first custom out of this? A normal Smokescreen?
    Fourth thought:
    Dare I read the replies?
    Fifth thought:
    wtf deluxe bulkhead
    EDIT:
    Sixth thought:
    *scrolls up*
    Oh, it's detachable! Woot! All he needs is some paint!

    Final thoughts:
    Smokescreen looks fairly decent, but definitely needs some paint. Bulkhead is kinda... strange to me. I'll pick him up just for the hell of it, and somehow he makes me nostalgic about old times, you know, like the Cybertron line. Don't know what it is, but he just reminds me of that.

    Well...

    I'm going to have to do a lot of recoloring and renaming, but those toys aren't too shabby.

    Well we've had one for a couple months now, and how long of a wait was it from his introduction, a couple months? Not really a long wait.

    Also where were all those posters on this website that were crying and moaning and whining and so forth and so on that Smokescreen was never going to get a Deluxe release outside of the Arms Micron figure. I also kept on saying that the Arms Micron figure was just a release to get a toy out of him in Japan around the time he'd appear on the cartoon.

    People on this site need to chill out once in a while.

    Bulkhead is a pass.

    Will get Smokescreen if the spike garbage is removable. If it isn't, also pass.

    Pass on Bulky. If the armor is removable on Smoke, consider it bought.

    Not bad, I will probably pick these up. It's odd that Bulkhead would be a Deluxe, but I think it looks better than the voyager.

    LOVE both. Will buy the first chance I get. I do like Bulkhead, and LOVE Smokescreen. Good thing these pics came out, because I was extremely close to buying an Arms Micron Smokescreen. I think ill take this instead :)  haha

    I like both. I like the idea that the Armor is removable from Smokescreen.
    The bulkhead reminds me of a Roadbuster or a Pre-beast wars, Rhinox.

    I actually think both look great. Smokescreen looks to be a nice compromise with the spike armor being removable, between the "normal" version most of us wanted, and the spiky Beast Hunters armor that the other Autobots are sporting. Only thing I don't really like about him is his weapon, but that's not a deal breaker. I definitely wasn't expecting a Deluxe Bulkhead figure. It's definitely not perfect, but I actually like how the mold looks. His colors aren't bad, but I kinda want to see how they'll choose to repaint this mold. It's not a wrecking ball, but I like the weapon.

    All that said, I'm not sure if I'll get either one. Going to wait for more pictures, reviews, and I might wait to see how Hasbro chooses to repaint them.

    That's pretty darn clever how Smokescreen is both a show-accurate clean car and Beast Hunters spiky thanks to that removable bit of armor.

    Fake chests galore makes me cry, though.

    Now that I look at it it looks like the front armor is removable. If it looks like his original car form I'd totally buy it.
