    He's WAY better than Animated!

    In Animated he reminded me of a kid whose body structure was too old/big for his personality and voice. A big dorky kid.

    But in Prime he's just a "bulky" tough guy that has a sense of humor, and the VA they got is perfect.

    He didn't have much screen time, so I'm not sure how I feel about him.

    I got the feeling that he's more like an all grown up version of TFA Bulkhead.

    Bulkhead is WIN in Transformers Prime. He has the attitude of BAMF that should not be messed with.

    Although I loved him in Animated I really like the way his character is turning out just two episodes in.

    Much better than Animated. Energon still grabs my vote as best Bulkhead though :p

    It's cool having him still around through the transition from Animated to Prime. I like how similar his design is.

    I think he's a lot darker than the animated incarnation, which in my opinion detracts from the character's charm, but still he's a good character.

    I mentioned this in another thread but I loved the scene when he grabs that crane-thing and crushes it

    Bulkhead: "Team Prime knows when to use force, and how much to use!"

    Ratchet: "Bulkhead! I NEEDED THAT!"

    LMAO! :D

    Prime's Bulkhead really seems more like a seasoned warrior, the way he materialized the two punching clubs from his fists was way awesome. I hope those get implemented in some way in the toy form. Hoping for a leader version of this guy. Great to see an Animated homage so early on in the TF continuity.

    He looks like to be an actual warrior. Animated Bulkhead was more of a civilian and very naive (mostly because he was never in the war). This one seems to have gone through the war and changed because of it.

    I'm not sold on the "god voice" they're using. He's got a great voice acting range, use something else. Other then that, he's OK, but no Animated.

    Yes, I loved that scene. That's classic Bulkhead. I half-expected a "uh, sorry. My bad" after that scene, though it's probably better without it. Don't want this new Bulkhead to be a total copy of Animated.

    He makes me think of a grown up Animated Bulkhead,

    Which is a really good thing. Even his voice reminds me a bit of him.

    I think Kevin did a great job on the voice and I like that Bulkhead seem more like a adult....
    I love him.... He is pretty much perfect in my eyes.

    Animatd Brawn seemed like an Idiot Savant with the Space Bridge. Prime Bulkhead reminds me of a G.I Joe type. All business with some humor thrown in.

    Need to see more before I make a full decision, but the signs look good so far!
