    Most people like to have toys in size with one another. I am one of those people. Now, ive been getting into Transformers Animated, and I fell in love with Bulkhead. But theyre are two of them. And in the tv show, hes gigantic. Would the Leader Bulkhead be better off sizewise with the other Deluxes and Voyagers, or is the Voyager one accurately sized with the rest?

    Leader Bulkhead would definitely be the better choice if you are trying to accurately size him with the rest of the autobots. Decepticons on the other hand like Lugnut, you would be better with Voyager Bulkhead since Voyager Lugnut is the same size wise.

    Leader Bulkhead is vaguely to-scale with voyager Prime, deluxe Ratchet, deluxe Prowl, and activators Bumblebee. The upcoming Hydrodive Bumblebee might work here as well.

    Voyager Bulkhead is more in-scale with activators and legends figures, or with voyager Lugnut and Blackout.

    Proper show scale has Prime as tall as Bulkhead's shoulder, Ratchet as tall as Prime's shoulder, Prowl as tall as Ratchet's shoulder, and Bumblebee as tall as Prowl's shoulder.

    So, either Prowl's a really huge motorcycle, or Bulkhead is a really small military transport(?).



    Get the Leader version, and if you don't like the saw on Bulkhead's arm, buy two and swap the forearms.

    Get the leader version if scale is important to you.

    Leader version for scale accuracy, Voyager for Screen Accuracy. If you want both, you can have a display consiting of:
    Activators Optimus Prime
    Activators Ratchet
    Legends Prowl
    Legends Bumblebee
    Voyager Bulkhead

    Leader is on scale but, the Voyager is accurate. Take your pick.

    I'd agree. In fact, two of the reasons I prefer Activators Bumblebee is first, symmetry with Cliffjumper; and second, Fugitive Wasp will look bigger and more of a threat to BB.
