    Last one, for now.

    Bulhead's vehicle mode is a neat little green truck, that looks pretty damn accurate to the screen model, at a glance. There's a surprising amount of sculpted detail on here, and paint apps too.

    He comes, as do all the Cyberverse, with a clear plastic weapon - in this case moulded to look like his mace weapon from the show. It could also pass as his arm cannon. It pegs into several ports across the vehicle mode, and can combine with the other weapons really nicely, due to having 4 pegs, and 3 holes across it.

    It was always going to end with a giant tower of guns. Of course it was.

    Transformation is a little more involved than the others, but accomplishes a lot more. I'd not be surprised to see a variation on this being used for the inevitable RID deluxe/voyager mode. Robot mode is bulky, but a bit shorter than the other two I have in his size class. His back ends up being pretty hollow, but, really it doesn't bother me in the slightest, because the rest of the figure is so good.

    He's nicely articulated, alongside Megatron he reminds me very fondly of the Scout size class, rather than the legends. Also: head articulation. Thanks, Hasbro.

    Big damn hero.

    Dance the Bulkhead!

    His weapon has lots of lovely molded detail, and in robot mode has two forearm holes, shoulder holes and his hands to carry the plethora of weapons he can be given.

    Missile Pauldrons. Awesome, or a major safety hazard? Miko says Awesome.

    Overall, after the delight of Megatron, and the low point with Starscream, Bulkhead is a major return to form for the Cyberverse line. I'm really excited to get an opportunity to see the other Commanders, and the Legions too. Despite the mainline having some hits and misses (although generally I've come out happy), I've decided I'm probably going to get every Cyberverse I can lay my hands on. And then build Megatron the biggest gun in history.

    Bulkhead is heavily recommended. A wonderful figure.


    Some fun to roll out with:

    Despite kinda sucking, Starscream neatly sums up my feeling about the Cyberverse line.

    Great review for what appears to be a great figure. He'll definitely be among the first Prime toys I get.

    I really like him. Too bad his head's so small.

    I like it. These Cyberverse Commanders are the only wide-release TFP toys so far that impress me in any way.

    So far, the Cyberverse figures are making me consider scaling down my purchasing decisions for the Prime line.
    Great review, btw!

    Just found him myself, along with Starscream and Prime.

    Bulkhead is a great little figure. Neat transformation, good articulation for his size class, and for Bulkhead (also Prime) it's nice to have a cyberverse figure that can turn his head. Plus, his weapon can store on his back. Can't even see it when doing so unless you look at him from behind.

    Definitely worth picking him up if/when you see one.

    Picked 1 of these up, they had all the commanders but funds were limited but it's a great little figure well worth getting if you can find it.

    The upper arms pull down and out of the shoulder pads, allowing the car rear to form more substantial/accurate shoulder pads. I didn't catch it until after I shot my review either.

    Every OCD Prime collector who's not filthy rich got screwed over to some extent. Why pick on Cyberverse collectors?

    This is going to sound crazy, but I think I might like this guy *gulp* better than the FE voyager toy! The voyager is excellent, don't get me wrong, but the CC version constantly screams "pick me up and play with me!!!" and I must comply with his demands. Such a great transformation, one that wouldn't have been out of place on a voyager sized toy not too many years ago.

    This Bulkhead is an all-around awesome figure, in both modes, with a good transformation. Well done!
