    Hot DAMN. That's awesome. LOVE the hazard stripes.

    EDIT: Looks like he'll be scaled to size with bulkhead, though. Kinda appropriate if you think about it.

    Well I guess that explains where "the rest of the plane" goes while in bot mode. I had a feeling there would be removable parts, but kinda hoped I would be wrong.

    I *really* hope that we eventually get a Leader sized version of this guy as well. They did 2 versions of Bulkhead, so fingers crossed that Lugnut gets the same attention to keep him in scale. He looks ridiculously small as a Voyager.

    NICE!

    Though, I wonder if his giant mallet transforms any further?

    Still, it's definitely a sharp looking figure.

    From the look of the tracks (clarification: the way the grey bits on the hammer seem to be extended from the central piece) and the way the bits hang out over the hazard stripes, I'd say it closes up more and possibly has a springloaded function where the sides pop out to make it look the way it does.

    That's awesome. It's nice to see him with his head, in his colors, and holding his weapon in one of his hands. I have a feeling he's going to be one of my favorite Animated toys.

    This one is the Voyager sized one, though he does look a little small in that last pic with Prime, but that's because of the odd angle of it. He is a bit small for a Voyager figure, but his bulk does make up for that. I might actually decide to get Voyager Bulkhead instead of the Leader one, so that him and Lugnut are in scale with each other. Would be interesting to see a Leader class Lugnut, but I'm not going to hold my breath for that to happen.

    Edit: Does anybody remember how tall Voyager Bulkhead is? I can't remember.

    Very cool toy. Lugnut just screams Shockwave. From the purple colors to the one eye, he's awesome. Ah, more of my hard earned money to be spent on Animated.

    This character needs a leader class sized toy. This one isn't bad, but his too small compared to Prime.

    The same, 15CM. Bulkhead and Lugnut are the same height.

    We thought that Voyager Bulkhead was too small as well, then found out there would be a more size accurate Leader version. I expect the same thing to happen with Lugnut. Considering how faithful the show is remaining to the toys & size scales, I doubt they'd draw Lugnut as big as Bulkhead unless they know that there will be a huge toy version later. If we're lucky, we'll get some sign of this @ BotCon.
