    Might be the only Beast Hunter toys I buy. Smokescreen looks great and makes me glad I didn't jump on the Takara version, and Bulkhead...well, even though he's all 90's X-TREME! I have a weakness for the big guy so I'll have to buy him.

    Well that deluxe Bulkhead sort of came out of leftfield. Really was not expecting that. What next a voyager BH Arcee. o_O 

    Kidding aside, I'm not sure how I feel about old bulkhead. Why did they go with the Roadbuster deco for one thing? His weapon looks pretty cool. Can't really go wrong with a giant buzzsaw. What does seem weird is the chest either is an homage to his animated counterpart or its a green/tan version of Strikas' face. I'm hoping the former rather then the latter. I'll reserve final judgement until I see clearer pics, but so far I kind of like it.

    I honestly can't remember what I said about a release of smokescreen. Although I can't help but think I'll be pulling both feet out of my mouth if I go back through my posts. :lol  I think I'd really only get him though for his vehicle mode. I don't personally care for Smokescreen as a character to be honest. I don't hate I just don't feel the need to get a toy form of him.

    Bulkhead looks pretty ok, although the vehicle mode is not as cool as his cyberverse version.

    Smokescreen actually looks really good - and for those who'd rather have a 'clean' Smokescreen, with some slight mods you'd probably come a long way. Or can you just take off his attachments? Even better!


    Cooler looking than the wave 1 remolds. Guess this line has some potential after all. :)

    Oh, baby, Smokescreen. ♥

    The weapon+armor will almost certainly be tossed into a box to be forever forgotten, but I'm okay with that since underneath it all he looks pretty great. Can't wait to see more.

    It appears all Smokescreen needs to be fairly accurate is paint. Why did they think it was necessary to make his knees red, or add all that blue to his head, and add that red to his arms?
    Oh, well, I wanted to get into customizing anyway.
    Looks like Hasbro is trying to break their legit-transformation streak. All of the most recent ones have barely any fake parts. And now two in the same wave do!
    Hasbro really put themselves in a bad situation with turning Beast Hunters into a new subline of TFP, since they need to pump out a bunch of new toys to make it a full line. And from what we know, that's a hard task. They wouldn't be burdened with designing all the cactus-formers if they hadn't created a new line to fulfill.
    I am aware of the "armor is in the show" idea/argument, but it's hardly consistent between Cyberverse and mainline. A good example would be the two Bulkheads. The only real similarity between the two's design changes is the color. And at the same time, CV has more orange while Deluxe has more green.
    I like what Hasbro did with Smokescreen. They managed to make an accurate one at the same time as keep their new spike fad.
    And last, but not least, I TOLD YOU ALL WE WOULD GET A SMOKESCREEN! *Megatron laugh*
    Seriously though, on several occasions I've mentioned how I'm not going to get AM Smokescreen because I have been expecting a Hasbro brand-new Smokescreen mold. Good thing I didn't already start on the FE Bumblebee into Smokescreen custom I was thinking about trying...

    I just hope Beast Hunters toy line is just like PRID toy line in Canada where we only got wave 1 and we didn't get the other wave until 9 to 10 months later.

    Will be eager to see more of these. They look cool. Though it will be really disappointing if the armor on Smokescreen does not end up being removeable.

    Bulkhead looks more like Brawn or Rhinox. I might buy him.

    Smokescreen looks good, but not for me. Eh, I'll pass on him for no real reason.

    Bulkhead looks like he went on a diet. Anyways, they kinda look interesting to me. Especially Smokescreen I just think that the slim version would have been better. Bulkhead looks ok, but we kinda lost the "Bulk" in Bulkhead.

    Just when Hasbro has me thinking I'm out of the mainline stuff they do something to peak my interest.

    Once we start seeing in hand pics/reviews I'll make up my mind, but this is where I'm at.

    Looks like the armor is layered over the car and removable. Will buy that. Pass on Bulkhead.

    I think they both look great. If Bulkhead doesn't end up looking like that in the show(which I have a feeling he won't), then hello deluxe TFP Roadbuster.

    As for Bulk being a deluxe, look on the bright side. This means no voyager Bulk repaint or remold, freeing up the slot for someone else to get a voyager class fig. BH Ratchet perhaps? Or another Predacon.
