    After RK put up a new batch on their website, is FE Bulkhead still in demand as of now or we pretty much all got one at this point?

    After buying the PRID Bulkhead, I can personally say I no longer want the FE one.


    ... What? :confused2

    WUT!!!!

    I want them all!!! lol...i actually have both (FE and RID is on preorder). FE is awesome!!! I just opened mine last nite thanks to a buddy of mine here at the boards and he's phenominal!!! cant wait to see the RID version....he seems to have his good qualities as well....I guess it depends what weighs more for you....accuracy of the figure or price....to me, accuracy was VERY important which is why I went with FE for my display...but RID seems, to me at least, a figure to have fun with and beat up, lol....but ill see once it gets in

    I dont understand how anyone could like RID over the FE version if cost wasn't a factor

    C'mon man. That is the ONLY factor. If it weren't for price and scarcity, everyone would have a FE Bulkhead that wanted one. I like the PRID mold, but if I had my druthers, I'd replace him with the FE in a heartbeat.

    I'm asking because a new TRU opened a few days ago in my city and as I was suspecting they got a bunch. On sale (30% off) on top of that.

    It's still wanted by me.

    Thankfully, mine is shipping from a fellow TFW user. Yay!

    Dude. Buy them all. You can't not make money off them...if anything, hook some people up. RiD mold is garbage next to FE.

    Yeah, I second that! I picked up the FE version and after comparing it to my friend's PRID's version, I'm glad I chose the FE version.

    I am glad we got both FE Optimus an Bulkhead in our local malls in Peru. RID Bulk can't compare to the FE.

    Believe it or not, I'm with you on that. The FE molds are great and all, but I've got some of their RID counterparts, and I'm enjoying the hell out of those. Starscream and Arcee have actually stolen my heart by comparison to the FE versions.

    The only FE I want with a burning passion, however, is Optimus.

    Yeah, I got to agree that in some instances the PRID molds are superior such as Arcee (for scale) and the Vehicons...my heck, I'm going to get a few of them!

    I agree. RID Bulkhead is awesome, I'm fine with him and honestly I don't want the FE one anymore.

    I'm going to guess still wanted, because I still see a bunch of people getting their hopes up when Hasbro announces some crap like "We'll try our best to get the first edition figures out guise!"

    FE Bulkhead in my opinion beats out PRID. With the re-stocking from Robotkingdom and the PRID out now, I have noticed the FE craze has somewhat cooled. I capitalized on this and was able to afford one via another boards member and am now awaiting it's arrival:p

    I'm sure plenty of people still want the FE, but I'm happy with my PRiD Bulkhead. The PRiD honestly isn't so bad.

    pretty much this. I really like my RiD bulk, he's a solid, fun figure and 100% worth the $20 I spent on him.

    but if FE was openly available at the same price here, I don't think that's even a question as to which one I'd own. unfortunately there's about $60 with shipping separating the 2 figures so my choice was made easier.

    Same here, which is why I don't have Bulkhead at all. It's cool though, couse as far as my other toys are concerned, he's off on another mission or possibly the one who got killed early on in place of Cliffjumper. Much like why I only have 5 Constructicons (2 of which are Bonecrusher), it's a touchy subject.

    Have the FE and I'll get another one if the RID version (which I want) doesn't show up at retail around here soon.
