    As a big fan of the City he's close enough to pass the glance test. My only real issue is that the grill should been based off the City Turbo II. I have the MP on pre-order so it isn't like I need the Legacy one to be a 100% representation.

    I'll be honest, they had to take a character with 3 separate designs and make him fit into chug, and ultimately I think bulkhead is as good of an homage to all 3 as you could hope for

    I didn't think I'd like the allegedly-G1-ified Bulkhead when it was mentioned in the leaks thread but now that we get to see it... that's actually not too bad.

    So is Skids a remold or retool of the Jeep 93 Jurassic Park collaboration figure?

    Bulkhead had so many incarnations that I find hilarious that people are complaining that he doesn't look like the Prime version when that wasn't even the first one.

    This one is clearly taking inspiration from Animated Bulkhead while giving him a more realistic twist.

    Bulkhead looks sick I just wish they would have called him something else so as to not bother the Prime fans. I love truck transformers whose robot mode incorporates both the cab and trailer.

    I think it's closer to a blend of Prime and TLK than anything ngl

    HOLY CRAP these are trash.
    are they serious????

    these look more on par with Cyberverse quality than Generations.
    Or, like those figures they sold at Walgreens a couple years back.
    (Cyber-legion or whatever)

    ...if they seriously think they're charging $23 for that Skids who looks so hollowed out he's barely still there.... Tracks was pushing it, but at least he still looked good. Skids overall might not even look as good as the G1 figure (the alt mode not even close)

    And I can't even understand that Bulkhead. Honestly, what's even the point. That doesn't look like it's going to appeal to Generations/G1 fans, and it's sure as crap not going to make any Prime fans happy.
    And that head looks so incongruous aesthetically with the bulky body....

    I'm just, wow. I mean, I think for me this is the end if this is what we're looking at in Legacy – the price to quality delta was already pretty far gone in WFC (in particular with the price increase in Kingdom) – I could live with it if Deluxes were still $10-15 and Voyagers $20-25, but at the current price points, I just need to see way more then this.

    wow. just... wow. I'm kinda gutted by this reveal.

    Well... I'm sorry man, but we all have a drink without you sometime. You're not always around, you know? And sometimes we like to get drunk with our other buddies or our wife. Our bro. Our financial adviser...

    That's not Prime Bulkhead. Sure that's the head, but the alt mode is completely and utterly off. He's Bulkhead, not AOE Hound. ATV, not whatever that thing is.

    So the new legacy line is not g1 if it was g1 with a few g1 characters, I think it's a neat idea.

    I don't understand how you take such an enormous step backwards with a design like Bulkhead who's TF: Prime design was so perfect. Feels like I've stepped back into the 90's as far as TF design overall. In other words I hate it. However Skids looks amazing and I'm ready.

    If it has already been said, I apologize, but does anyone else see Energon Inferno coming from Bulkhead.

    I don't either but so far it doesn't look like it. The cleart gun didn't replace any of Skids' other weapons, which is nice. They seem as superful

    There is no G1 Bulkhead. Someone slapped Prime Bulkhead's head and mace onto AOE Hound.

    This isn't just missing the ball. This is swinging the bat, having the bat slip out of your hands, and nail the umpire right in the teeth. Hasbro sure as hell cares about screen accuracy when it comes to G1 and the movies, but fuck all about anything else.

    I am happy with Skids. I've never had any version of him so this will be a first. I'll take one in every color, please!
