    You know seeing how Animated characters like Lockdown and Lugnut got some treatments in the CHUG and the movieverse would you go for a Third Party G1 styled Bulkhead to go along with it? I know that Prime Bulkhead may be as close to a G1 styled Bulkhead (Well the RID Bulkhead anyway.) but what about a true honest to goodness G1 styled Bulkhead that can fit into a CHUG line? Would you go for that?

    And some G1 styled toys of Knockout,Airachnid and Vehicon wouldn't hurt too.

    For third party prices? No. I don't have that much of a need to put characters who weren't in G1 in my collection full of G1 characters.

    I already have FE Bulkhead on my classics shelf. He works as a "Classics" version for me.

    He's such a prominent character these days that I don't really see too many groups wanting to tackle him.

    However, I would be interested in a leader class animated Lugnut :D

    I would buy a third party leader class Animated Bulkhead that was show accurate, without the extra weapons and tech details.

    Classics version? Nah. I think we'll get one from hasbro eventually.

    I'm sorry, but why would you want a Classics/G1 version of a toy that never appeared as such in any fiction? I wouldn't want one, and certainly not at 3rd party prices.

    You could just make a head and wrecking ball for Universe Hardhead.

    I'll probably just put RiD Prime Bulkhead with my classics if I ever see him for sale in the UK. So no real need for a 3rd party classics one.

    I liked Animated's story. I wasn't a fan of the art design. However if they did a bulkhead like they did Lugnut for a G1 classics collection he'd be picked right up. Hasbro or 3rd Party.

    I don't know what Bulkhead is really like in the Prime Universe as that show doesn't exist in my world right now. I was originally turned off the second it looked like all the movie design aesthetic that I avoided buying for 3 years. Its saved my wallet for good stuff ever since. No Animated, no Movie, no Prime. Kept me rich until this 3rd party explosion occured!

    No chance, I'm still trying to force myself to get Lugnut.

    FE Bulkhead looks great in my Classics display, and even now would still be cheaper than sny 3rd Party offering.

    FE Bulkhead is one of the best Hastak figures ever made - can't see the need for a third party version myself.

    I still think style doesn´[ t matter unless it glashes too much (say movie sideswipe with most classics) but otherwise... bah my FE Bulky gopes quite nicely with my classics, same for Cliffjumper, Breakdown and Vehicons... onlçy one which I find odd is Knockout, but it comes downb to bewing a baaaaaaaaaaaad figure even with paint and reprolables and HE deserves a new figure.

    Bulkhead is a character vaguely evolved from Springer right? Superlink Sprung was Bulkhead, based on his helicopter mode, then for Animated they went with his land vehicle mode. So the third party Classic Bulkhead is Warbot Defender!

    FE Bulkhead is perfect, IMO, and I'm using a SG Drift with Con symbols as Knockout.
