The more I look at it, the more it grows on me.

    Powerizer Bulkhead.
    He's hideous, boxy, his weapons suck and the vehicle mode looks sloppy.
    But it's growing on me. He has no full-on transparent parts on the body, just the weapons, the vehicle mode is just okay, the head still looks the same, his arms look pretty good, more accurate shoulder panels, the only thing I'm not liking is the big wings on his back and his boxy body.

    I don't know why, but I wouldn't be raged if I had to get the RID version over the FE version. Sure, I prefer the FE waaaaay more than the RID version, but I wouldn't rant if I had to get the RID version. Anyone else warming up to him, too?

    Eh, that makes sense, but I just find it tolerable.

    I'm the opposite. I hate him more everytime I look at him.

    I think the he'll start looking good to those that can't find a FE version. Unfortunately, some collectors are going to have to settle for him to fill out the characters from Prime. Unless they're really patient and wait for the supposed re-release that may never happen... Who would have thought that poor Bulkkhead would create such an uproar.

    Well see, there are a few higher end figures I'm looking into at the moment (Namely the Music Label Soundwave & FE Vehicon), but holding off on those until I can find a deal that I'm happy with isn't gonna make me buy shit that I don't want in the mean time. If anything, it'll make me focus even more on saving money so that I can actually justify getting one (if not both) of those guys, and have some left over for when the FOC Shockwave comes out.

    Plus, even if I was actually starved for things & didn't have smaller wants like Vector Prime & the silver Armordillo repaint on my mind (Psycho Orb/Psych Orb for those who're curious wtf I'm talking about), then I'd sooner expect my mind to gravitate toward something that I'm on the fence about or haven't even considered (sort of like how I randomly fell for Banazi-Tron & Deep Space Starscream not too long ago, rather than something that I not only don't like... but that's also an inferior version of something admittedly great that I decided to pass on (FE Bulkhead).

    Well, the point of this thread isn't about how good inferior toys is or whatever your point is, it's that I actually wouldn't mind having to get the RID version.

    :p

    I realize that, but I was just offering an opinion in regards to well, the subject you brought up. Granted, I should probably have just mentioned a figure that fit the bill (aka, that grew on me) rather than simply shitting in Bulkhead's mouth yet again, but what's done is done.

    Speaking of which, the RID Ratchet really grew on me, and the more I see it, the more I want it. I consider this to be a lesson for basing too much weight on an initial opinion that comes from just a stock photo.

    Like I said. I would really prefer to get FE Bulk. But I can tolerate settling for RID. He really doesn't look that bad...

    I guess you're right, and if those shoulder wings or whatever can be shoved down, I won't have nearly as much hatred for it haha.


    Also in either case, I still think the FE Prime kicks both of their asses (at least in terms of the bot mode), but its all good.

    From what i have seen of the RID Bulkhead it is not a bad figure. Much like other FE comparisons i think that the RID one has its own merits compared to the FE. Still the FE should be priority

    He's grown on me slightly, but still sucks ass. Only thing I like about him more than the first edition are the legs and more show accurate shoulderpads.

    As soon as I saw RID Bulkhead, I knew I had to get a FE Bulkhead. The more I saw it, the more I was willing to pay the BBTS price for a FE Bulkhead.

    The only thing the RID versions does right are the legs and the plastic color.

    Im prolly going to get the rid version to complete my primeline, especially since those back panels can be folded down. So i guess it finally grew on me, because i originally i did not want it.
