    So this is the first figure I have had from the new generations/foc line. What a breeze to dismantle, only two heat pins. But I saw the stockade/gears head sitting in my tool kit and thought Bulkhead does not get enough love...plus what if he was more muscle and less "comedic relief"? He is made using FOC Prime and a ROTF Gears head and then two Sunstreaker guns and the gun from 2pk Optimus. He was base coated using krylon fusion satin fern, and satin forest green, then detailed using testor dark blue, light blue, white, steel and silver for the edging. I want to shout out Sons of Nemisis , dude I love your energon effect...I hope I did it justice your paint apps rock. Thanks to Fiskone for doing the neck mod while I dealt with those sales people ;)  Thanks for looking, comments are always welcome.

    I almost feel it, but the vehicle mode feels like there's something missing. He needs something BIG in the back. Something that will further separate him from Optimus further. The reversing of the arms was a huge step in the right direction, but it's just missing that one small thing to push it over the top as total badassery.

    Dude I love it. I don't think the head works but this is another fantastic case of this mold fitting everyone except Optimus.

    How did you get the head to fit? I used the same head from movie stockade but i had to shave off the existing ball joint and neck and replace it with his to make my foc crosshairs

    Nice work. Love the greens you used.

    Looks so much better as someone else other than Prime.

    Love the use of the mold! :thumb  It's amazing how a mold like this has so many uses.

    My only complaint is that the head doesn't scream out Bulkhead for me. If he had like a CHUG Hound;s head instead he'd look more like Bulkhead.

    I love the direction you went with this. Amazing how versatile that Prime mold is. Great work!

    It's a good custom but Bulkhead needs more bulk.

    Looks good man, no problem the head was easy took no time at all to mod to fit. Your turn around on him was insane, lol trying to race against your self to put this out? Great color pallet and I like the glowing bits reminds me of ironmans repulser bits. I reall like how versatile this mold can be I still think that he needs a huge rail gun or something bulkhead always reminded me of heavy duty from GI Joe.

    Yeah Jason!

    Been very busy working on Tarn and could check the full pics and awesomenes of this work just today. Great concept, makes even more sense than the actual character design for this mold. Colors are awesome too! Great work pal!

    Nice man! Inspiring me to finish my FOC Springer based on this mold. My color pallete is virtually identical. Love the reverse arm trick and the classic lambo guns, will have to implement those as well for Springer. Thanks for the inspiration my friend!

    I disagree, I think the vehicle mode looks pretty good as it is. Yeah though, the head doesn't work so well, nice paint work though. Wish I could get my hands on a FOC figure.
