    Hey TF fans,

    I was walking around the mall in Singapore this afternoon and picked up the powerizer Starscream & Bulkhead. Here are the pictures for both figures for now. Will try (no promises) to find time to do a pictorial review of them later on or something.

    This glowing MechTech crap really ruins the figures for me... not a fan of the translucent purple forearms on Starscream at all.

    Dat Starscream! :3 want. Bulkhead = still so-so for me. FE Bulk is much more superior, IMHO.
    Still great pick ups, dude!

    Anyone still open to changing their mind about this Bulkhead? I mean, was fine with it from the beginning, but it still got a lot of hate for not being super accurate.

    Both figures look awesome. Considering they will be fairly common in a few months it is nice to see there are alternatives to the FE versions that people will have the ability to purchase at retail for a fair price.

    Huh, Screamer isn't as bad as I thought he'd be, though the purple is very off-setting, I can look around that and what I'm seeing is pretty cool.

    Still not a substitute for the FE model, but good nonetheless.

    Need MOAR photos!

    (please)

    Thoughts: Not sure about Bulkhead. SS actually looks great; includes another POS plastic lump of a weapon and only worry about him scaling decently with Soundwave and Vehicon.

    Starscream looks fine, I don't mind the purple at all. Bulkhead looks pretty good too.

    The Mechtech-ish weapons are useless without a way to lock them in either form.

    So fake chest on Bulky with panels hanging off his back?

    Legs look find, but I'm worried about the torso/backpack.

    Can't wait to get a size comparison between FE and Powerizer Starscream.

    Bulkhead is actually starting to look a lot better.

    Gotta say though: Even as a kid I never liked any of that oversized, clunky "Mech-tech" type weaponry garbage. I know it's removable, but I still think it's $$ that could have been incorporated into the toy itself, even if only as a better gimmick.

    in any case, I've already paid for my pre-order of Takaratomy PRID Bulkhead which will be released next month. hoping it will have a decent paint job...


    ^hence the inclusion of Arms Microns for the Takaratomy versions. :D  ;)

    Bulkhead looks better than initially thought. & Stasrscream looks very nice as well, but I don't need either of them.

    Yeah, I agrue all the time that people have unrealisticly high expectations on Hasbro and can't expect them to do some of the things people on here clamor for. There is nothing wrong with trashing Mech-Tech.
