    If Bulkhead gets retooled into Heatwave all will be forgiven.

    In the context used for these toys “deco” is short for “decoration” and refers to the color scheme and paint ops applied.

    That Bulkhead is awesome. Really fits in with the rest of my collection instead of the bulbous and deformed Prime version

    I just noticed something.

    Oh man there's more to this Bulkhead mold than meets the eye, He would make a fantastic Rescue Bots Salvage!

    I’ve been begging for a chug Bulkhead since his inception, but this just isn’t it.

    what the hell.

    Hasbro really needs to take a step back and rethink their current aesthetic. I’m sure some people like it, but man it’s not for me. Not one bit.

    Ok, wasn't expecting much on either, though they were both HIGHLY anticipated. I think i...really, really like them both. If you are going to G1 BH, this is the best that can be expected. Obviously, not TFP or TFA, but with an open mind, I can get behind these.

    Trade-off will be down the road when they're targeting the Prime fans they'll like revisit those designs and pull some more G1 names in to the fold.

    Good points from many of you here. 
    I must say I\'m not the biggest fan of either figure but I\'ll give Skids a chance, even if it\'s just ticking the box (missed T30 skids). Bulkhead I will skip, he\'s just not what I want from the character. Pity.

    Skids looks amazing, shame no scooter though.

    Bulkhead looks really good too even with the box chest, I like how its the Prime one but they have done it in a way that he fits the aesthetic of the most recent line so it doesnt look out of place. Im excited for Knock out and Arcee from Prime now.

    Also nice to see energy weapons again I loved them in Energon, but having solid ones too is good for those that want them.

    Plus shocked and impressed that A. They were not leaked and this is official and B. Little to no gaps!!

    Well let's not forget that the leaked listings specified Arcee, Knockout & Soundwave as being from Prime yet Bulkhead had nothing next to his name. No Prime, no Animated, nothing. I assumed we were gonna get a G1-esque Generations figure of him & honestly I like what I see. They even homage his Prime design with his headsculpt which is a nice touch. I really dig him.

    Sure. But I’d rather not have a line-wide gimmick compromise anything about these figures.
