    It looks fine to me, except for that silly MechTech gimmick they put his mace on.

    However, when I compare his price tag to the FE price tags, the PRiD Bulkhead looks AMAZING!

    It is too hard to see the images available at this time. I can't say that it is better or worse. But it is definite that FE Bulkhead is an incredible figure. It seems unlikely that they could get it that good twice on the same character.

    He looks okay in that commercial. But when I saw the in-package Australian toy fair pics, he went back to being crap for me.

    I mean...Bulkhead will probably be similar to the other RID figures who had FE versions. Not bad figures at all but not as good as the FE ones. So I would say the RID Bulkhead is probably not going to be a bad figure.

    I will say this...

    I think that it is fair to say that FE Bulkhead is an awesome figure and, for all intents and purposes, it is probably the better figure (I have neither of them). It does look very nice from reviews. But I think this is a case where everyone is fully aware of FE Bulkhead and very upset at Hasbro over the whole First Edition "fiasco" that it doesn't matter how good the RID version is, people will always look down on it. IF, in fact, we had no knowledge of FE Bulkhead, I think most would be perfectly happy with the PRID version. I think it looks just fine except for the weapon and I think that people are overreacting to the whole mess :2c:

    If the chest was just a bit more screen accurate, it'd be on the same level as the FE to me.

    It looks better to me, and I'll be buying it when I see it. Don't get me wrong, the FE version is far superior, but it's not worth the price,IMO, it's going for. Between the $80+ FE and the $20+ PRID, I'll stick with the cheaper one.

    While the FE Bulkhead is clearly the winner the RID Bulkhead isn't too terrible but not one of the best examples of making a new mold of a prievous character. However I hope the people who do like the figure enjoy it.:)

    FE Bulkhead is to HFTD Battle Blades Optimus Prime as RiD Bulkhead is to DOTM Voyager Optimus Prime.
