    And replace it with the left hand from the other one so you have 2 grappling hands?

    Is it worth it?

    Yeah, I'm just going to get one and he can have one saw blade hand and I won't give a damn. Then I won't have to waste another $40 on something I really don't need. So, no.

    If you do it early enough before eBay is flooded, then you can sell the Bulkhead saw-hands figure pretty easily and not be out too much. I still don't know if it's worth it, though.

    I have the Leader Class Bulkhead and it is good enough for me. I don't see
    no reason for me to get the Leader Class. The only Leader Class figure I
    wanted is Megatron.

    I settled for just removing the sawblade myself.

    I was contemplating doing this when my other Bulkhead gets here, but the more I think about it the more I decide not to. Instead I'll either sell him on the boards or return him to where I found my first one.

    The problem with trying to get him show accurate is the fact that it's impossible.

    Yeah, you turn his hands all..."grabby".
    Yeah, you can remove the arm mounted missiles and their launchers.

    Two serious problems to overcome....

    There will be holes in the arms where the missiles once were, and how you remove the head shroud/gun assembly? If you do that, you'll expose his head permanently in vehicle mode, unless you make a way for his head to fold away (and I've looked, I didn't see a place to do so.) Not to mention, the sirens are attached to the headpiece, so if you cut off those shroud pieces, you've overly neutered your figure and for no good reason.

    Is he perfect, due to the lack of total show accuracy? No.
    Other than the hand modification, should he be left as is? Yes. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Oh, and one more thing. By removing the head shroud, you'll be killing off one of his electronic features. Without the shroud, you won't get the transforming sound, and I know that's one feature that even the gimmick haters like.

    I don't see the point, if you wanted the accuracy you should've gotten the Voyager version

    I'm more interested in knowing who all's buying it for the Headmaster.

    Actually, in 'bot mode, if you hide the missile launchers, he's probably the most accurate of all of the Bulkhead figures in the line. The head shroud is hidden by the shoulder pieces, so they're automatically out of the way.

    Still, even with him being imperfect, in terms of show accuracy, Leader Class Bulkhead is still the best way to go. He's well worth the $40.00 and not one of those figures that gives you buyers remorse.

    I paid over retail for a loose one (thank you Peaugh! I can't say that enough...) and I'd do it again too. He's well worth the money. I'm not kidding.

    He's worth more than a firstborn.

















    Okay, maybe that's pushing it, but he's definitely more important than their little sister or brother. And that's a FACT.

    Parts against accuracy

    Leader
    -missiles
    -saw
    -head cover(vehicle mode)
    -legs too long

    Voyager
    -back kibble
    -gap in vehicle mode
    -wheels on feet

    They're close but the Leader version looks more serious which contrasts Animated's laid back design, shown in the Voyager. I prefer the Leader version though

    The legs are longer, this is true, however, if you setup the stance just right, his legs look like they would on the show. It's a cheat, but it works. A lot of Animated rests on cheating in the toys, but it's done so well, it can be forgiven.
