    Bulkhead is my favourite Animated Character and I want to use classics and universe molds to make a generation one version of him or, if its too difficult, commission some one to make one of him.

    I'm trying to decide what mold to use. I was thinking of:-
    Classics Onslaught
    Classics Ironhide
    Energon Demolishor
    Marvel Crossover Hulk
    Star Wars Crossover Commander Cody

    I would use Cybertron Crumplezone but his alt mode is really an earth form.

    These are just some ideas I'm thinking of but if anyone has has any better ideas I'd be glad to hear them.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think this is a great idea, and I was just discussing this idea with REDLINE last night! I'd love to see the cast of Animated in a "Classics" style.

    For Bulkhead, using the Crumplezone head is simply a must, imo, because it's so spot on. I think Universe Onslaught is a great base, but I'd love to see it heavily modified. I think the Cyb Defense Red Alert mold (that will see a repaint as Universe Countdown) would be cool too.

    Definitely keep us updated! :thumb

    Great idea! Funny how Bulkhead has become such a welcome addition to the TF universe in such a short time... it feels like he should have always been there! :) 

    I'm with superquad7, I say use the Crumplezone head on the Classics Onslaught body. The mold has so many similarities, from the tummy grille to the chest windshield to the alt mode to even the waist design. It'll make for a pretty scary-looking Bulkhead, but you could do stuff like removing the claws on the front of the vehicle and somehow giving him a little paunch in robot mode to soften him up. Also, if you could remove Onslaught's fists and replace them with three-point pincers, I think that would really seal the homage.

    Can't wait to see the results!

    This is a great idea: "G1 Bulkhead" had something of an ambiguous cameo in IDW's Spotlight: Blurr back in November, albeit only in alt mode. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
