    Just looking for some opinions. Which is better? Leader Class Animated Bulkhead or Megatron? Because they are on clearance right now at TRU for $19.98. I got Megatron, but now i kinda want Bulkhead. SHould i just get both?
    (But then i also want to save money for ROTF Walmart skywarp)
    >.< I hate it when i have to make decisions. Sometimes i regret not making a purchase. So what do you guys think?

    EDIT: I finally decided to get Skywarp over Bulkhead. I like the Animated line and I also think that Bulk head would probably have been a great figure for my collection, but I guess space-wise, he is kinda big(and I am sorta running out of room to store them), although not saying that its a bad thing. I think that I could live without Bulkhead, might regret no getting him for a bit, but thats ok.

    If you've already got megatron, then why are you still deciding between Megs and Bulkhead?

    This should be a no brainer.... Bulkhead!

    Megatron's better, to me, but if you don't have Bulkhead and want him I'd get him.

    I'd try and get Skywarp too though, regardless.

    It depends...do you want the TF:A cast in scale?

    If so, I'd get Leader Bulkhead, or see if your TRU has the exclusive with Activators Bumblebee.

    If you have these two, just get (if you don't already have) Voyager Prime, Deluxe Samurai Prowl and Ratchet, and you're in business.

    Leader Megs is awesome...but you need an Autobot leader, too.

    Wish my damn TRU would have this sale...grr.

    Megatron is far, far, far better than Bulkhead. Not counting Masterpieces and other non-kids toys, the only toys that come close to being as good as Leader Megatron are ROTF Leader Optimus and Universe Cyclonus.

    There is a leader bulkhead pack that comes with activators bee too.

    Bulkhead is awesome. Far superior to rotf skywarp mold.

    I don't have Bulkhead, but I've somehow managed to get Magnus and Megatron for Clearance through various stores. Bulkhead is on sale, might pick him up.

    Between the two I have though I have to say I like Megs more as he has much more playability, and his alt mode is just Too Cool. And Huge.

    Magnus is a little rigid around the arms, and can't effectively swing his hammer, but otherwise he's really awesome and his Alt Mode/Robot are really imposing and Hulking. Really like the colors too.

    Grant it, I don't like that Walmart Skywarp so I may be bais, but go with the Animated Bulkhead and hope that those Walmart Exclusives go on sale/clearance. The Bulkhead is a good figure, and (if anything) just start saving again for the skywarp cause he should be around for a while. I havent seen any of him move here.

    I've never seen the Bulkhead w/Activators Bumblebee at Target. I bought two for two of my little cousins at Christmas, and I got them at Toys R Us. I've only seen the Animated Leaders with Activators at Toys R Us.

    I've got megs.. its awesome! Always wanted bulkhead tho.. I feel your pain.. I thought skywarp looked awesome too. Here's the way I look at it.. Skywarp isn't on clearance.. Bulkhead is. Its a lot harder to find Bulky (at least where I am) than Skywarp, so pick up Bulkhead. Skywarp will still be around later, as ROTF isn't going anywhere anytime in the near future.

    Same here. I'm pretty sure he was thinking of the Target Shockwave that came with a Legends or Activators figure.

    Both TFA Megatron and Bulkhead are excellent figures and $20 each is a steal. They're some of my favorite in the Animated line and well worth a purchase.
