    Round 9 of the Prime vs. Animated match-ups is:

    [​IMG] VS [​IMG]

    TFP Bulkhead vs TFA Bulkhead!

    Scenario: TFP Bulkhead crashes into a construction site when he falls out of a portal after a groundbridge malfunction. As he sits up rubbing his head, he is struck from behind by a huge wrecking ball. A small "oops" is uttered from the source of the wrecking ball: TFA Bulkhead, who was breaking walls at the construction site when TFP Bulkhead appeared out of nowhere! TFP Bulkhead gets up and, believing he was attacked, charges at his TFA counterpart with wrecking ball mace arm at the ready. TFA Bulkhead is forced to defend himself as his TFP counterpart crashes into him.

    Ex-Wrecker or the original wrecking ball wielder?

    Well this one is kinda obvious isn't it?

    TFA Bulkhead grew up in a world without war, TFP Bulkhead grew in the middle of one and even used to be one of the Wreckers.

    He would whoop TFA Bulky's ass like nothing, and probably without mercy too (That fat green dude's a jerk!)

    Hmm. TFP Bulkhead seems more aggressive then TFA. Since they shrank Bulkhead to be smaller then Ratchet in Prime, TFA Bulkhead has got th advantage of size. TFP Bulkhead has the advantage of firepower.

    It'd be a close call, maybe even a stalemate. But I think that both Bulkhead's big hearts would eventually settle down and reason with each other.

    I definotly like TFA Bulkhead, however, for not only being the original big lovable badass lug, but because TFP Bulkhead has shown to be less peaceful about things.

    Prime Bulkhead is probably stronger if lacking a long range weapon. Not to mention he's even a little smarter and lot less clumsy (how did he manage to open that cellphone).

    After seeing the two of them side by side, it's quite stunning how different their designs are in a bunch of little ways.

    TFP Bulkhead. I´m not really a fan of the "clumsly dimwitted giant" steriotipe.

    TFP Bulkhead>retarded starfish
    I'm not sure how big it's range is, but I personally would classify his built in forearm gun as a long-range weapon.

    I was thinking just that. Which is good because I feared his toy would be too similar to TFA for me to buy it. But right now there's no way it could really end up the same.

    Oh, I forgot about his gun. I was here thinking "What weapons does Bulkhead have?" and all I could think about was that mace hand.

    My assumption like the Bee vs bee:

    This is NOT a popularity poll.
    This is NOT a which character is more developed or more likable.

    This is talking about a BATTLE, which is what the OP indicated with the scenario. Aka, who comes out on top:

    What TFP Bulkhead got going for him:

    1. Part of Wrecker. It implies that he is an autobot elite.
    2. Survival War Veteran. It implies that he has got lots of experience, combo with #1.
    3. Monster Strength and Courage.
    4. 2 Giant Wrecking Ball Melee weapon.
    5. 2 arm cannon

    What TFA Bulkhead got going for him:

    1. NOT a war veteran. A construction worker/scientist.
    2. Lots of Wreckless Courage, no pun intended.
    3. Giant Wrecking Balls.

    TFP Bulkhead > TFA Bulkhead in:

    Combat Experience.
    Long ranged Weapon.

    TFP Bulkhead = TFA Bulkhead in: (as in, not proven one is better than another)

    Courage
    Raw Strength
    Melee Weapon

    TFP Bulkhead < TFA Bulkhead in:

    Stupidity.

    Just kidding, but yeah, nothing.

    The choice is clear.

    Who would win: Prime Bulkhead. Who I like better: Prime Bulkhead.

    This battle would be over quick! TFP Bulky is a Wrecker, but TFA Bulky is a cuddly guy with a peaceful history. TFP Bulkhead seems smarter too.

    Likeability-wise, Prime Bulky wins for me again. Like General Magnus, I'm not fond of the big dumb oaf archetype. TFP Bulkhead still fits that type, but not as much as the TFA version. TFP Bulky reminds me more of a barbarian (tough and battle-hardened despite the lack of smarts).

    I enjoy TFA Bulkhead, but in a fight its gonna be TFP Bulkhead. He has decent combat experience. if it was a spacebridge construction competition, then it would have been TFA Bulkhead.

    This one is difficult as hell.

    I love both Bulkheads. Prime is more expierenced and a Wrecker but his zero tolerance for jerks (mainly humans) that's just dark even for a Autobot.

    Where as Animated Bulkhead is goofy, inexpirenced but he's extremley artistic and intelligent.


    It's a tie to be honest.

    TFA Bulkhead. I don't care who would win, TFPrime Bulkhead is boring as piss. TFA is a great character.

    Cause your´re comparing a character that had 3 seasons with a character that had barely one season.

    TFPrime Bulkhead in a fight. TFA Bulkhead in terms of character. Prime Bulkhead's kind of a jerk.
