    I searched around and didn't find either.
    Found more high-res photos on tf08.net of Leader Bulkhead and Voyager Blitzwing.

    I'll never understand people's mad compulsion to put watermarks and such all over every photo they take.

    Oh well...

    How convenient, I just happen to have all my animated figures on my desk right now, AND a pepsi can. Now I can compare BW with all of them!

    I would say if leader Bulkhead has a failing, it's that his proportions are too 'normal', compared to the rotund bruiser with the huge arms and stumpy legs seen in the cartoon. (The Voyager does a better approximation of his animated proportions IMO). Still, the size, looks and weaponry are pretty nifty though. I like the arm-mounted missiles, though I'm not a fan of the buzzsaw hand. I may be keeping an eye on Peaugh's investigation into replacing the saw hand with another regular claw hand.

    Just gimme the thing already!


    EDIT: Just noticed the clips that hold the arm-missiles on are facing opposite directions on each arm. Assembly error?

    No, they can spin 360° the missiles were just inserted differently.

    i agree with you 100 percent on leader bulkhead's 'normal' proportions.

    i like that this is big and gimmicky and love the voyager for the 'toon-accurate'ness but hate its 'deluxe-class'ness.

    we may just have to buy both the voyager and the leader class then (for those who dig bulkhead).

    money smart, this Hasbro

    I'm leaning voyager bulkhead myself. Size be damned, he just has that animated persona nailed.

    Also, have we had official confirmation Blitzy's a voyager? I know Bulkhead was short, but between blitz's wings, and and various joint use, he feels weird to me as a voyager. Those look like all the corner cutting joints for a deluxe. Then again, maybe he was too small for those types of joints in his body, but too many pieces to be considered a deluxe class by cost.

    Blitz is definitely a Voyager. His box was on display at Botcon, and the robot is roughly the same height as Voyager Optimus Prime (without being skinny like Lockdown)

    I am confused??? Are they planning to release every figure in Deluxe, Voyager and Leader mode? Cause I just want to collect one set and I like the Voyager class thus far. Or is hasbro playing a bait and switch type game. To bascially tempt us to buy 3-4 versions of the same figure. I hate that.

    I don't think it's a "bait and switch-type game." I remember filling out a poll by Hasbro asking whether we would like multiple size-class versions of the same character, which had been mostly phased out after Beast Wars/Machines. I responded favorably, as it gives non-completists the opportunity to purchase a version that best fits their space constraints, budget, and other preferences. As long as Hasbro's informing people that there will be multiple size-class versions of the same character to choose from, I see no problem in the practice other than it might annoy some completists to be buying multiple versions of the same character.

    Leader Bulkhead, the wait for you will be long, but worth it. Then when you are mine, we will embrace. My birthday is around the time you'll be coming out too, oh joy!

    Nice pics, but I'm still not sure if I want to pick up Leader Bulkhead yet. I already have the voyager one and I think he's awesome, even if he's a shorty.

    Blitzwing is a must-buy though.

    Leader Bulkhead is supposed to represent upgrades that he gets in the series (somewhere within season 2 I believe). As far as I know, those two are the only versions of Bulkhead being released.

    Megatron and Optimus have different releases showing off the Earth/Cybertron modes, weaponry, etc.

    That's right. I've got nothing useful to add.

    I actually like the voyager Bulkhead better. He's smaller, but I like the design on him better. Especially two hands and not one buzzsaw hand.

    My only gripe with leader bulkhead is the tan plastic used for the turret barrels in his alt mode, I think they stick out like a sore, ugly thumb. Also, anyone else notice that his eyes glow red? Something to do with his upgrade by headmaster for "evil" intentions as a hardcore killing machine perhaps?
