    Damn. That's a pretty faithful G1 Skids and it most certainly beats the last one because of articulation and polish. That's also definitely the Energon gimmick from this line and I'm glad is the same from, er, Energon.

    Bulkhead is less faithful but is still an interesting interpretation and I'm glad it has his classic weapons at least.

    Good so far.

    The clear blue weapons are interesting. Guess that's involved with Legacy's gimmick?

    Skids is the best imo.

    Expanding on Bulky, I hate that torso with a passion. I didn't expect G1ified Prime alts and robots.

    Your post and the title of this thread are both misspelled. hmmm o_O 

    You were right on IGN dropping this bomb on us. So much for a full surprise from Hasbro. At least it’s not stolen factory sample from a youtuber this time :lol

    Skids looks great! I love that cute little car mode.

    Bulkhead looks alright, not great but not bad either. The proportions look a little off, but definitely a lot better in the actual photos than in the render. I do really like his headsculpt though. I'll probably have to wait to see in-hand reviews to decide for sure whether I want him or not.

    If a third-party company could make a replacement truck covering that turns into an Animated-style backpack for his robot mode, that'd push him into a definite 'buy' for me (although it'd probably be expensive).

    There you go guys, there's your Earth Mode Hound.
    ...what do you mean this isn't G1? It looks pretty G1 to me.

    They both look great! Bulkhead is a little odd, cool but odd looking. I’ll be picking up both for sure. Wonder what bulkhead will be repainted/retooled into though? The design for the base bot is interesting, as is the vehicle mode. Wouldn’t mind seeing a Optimus Prime retool or a Dotm Megatron homage. He does look to be a good AOE Hound repaint/retool, but I’m wondering aside from the obvious potential

    Skids... Feels like an evolutionary step back.
    It's like they took the G1 toy and gave it articulation. He's quite jarring. Also, confirms he is *not* sharing a mold with JP93.

    He's a maybe.

    Bulkhead is neat, in general, but not my cup of tea. The original is still better. This is clearly an homage to the original and AOE/TLK Hound but I think that works against it more than it does for it. It would be a solid figure if it was a brand new character.

    Both of these feel a little off. Almost backwards in terms of design. Boxy and weird in a way.

    EDIT: These are heavily simplified compared to the WFC trilogy. Especially Bulkhead. Fake wheels and all... And man, Skids is hollow... We're back to higher prices and cost-cutting cheapness, friends. Yay...

    Skids looks pretty nice, can't say the same about Bulkhead.

    Not liking the head on Skids, wish it wasn't so flat and that the back of the hood was more of a collar like Siege Hound

    I kinda love the new bulkhead. Vehicle mode looks great and the robot mode is pretty good too. Excited to what else the line has in store.

    Already Spoiled!

    I was hoping Bulkhead would have a G1 look. However, wasn't thinking he had he same head.
