    Meanwhile, I'm just here going "Sweet! New Bulkhead toy!"

    I mean really.
    How exactly do you improve upon the First Edition when it pretty much nailed it first try?
    You don't.
    You go for a different look.

    Obligatory Bulkhead comparison. (Caveats: Not showing every version/deco, just molds. Not in release order. I'm sleepy and cold so if I missed anything please excuse.)

    Prime and Animated (or based thereupon, in no particular order):

    Thanks, missed those. Personally, still gonna wait to judge it till I see it. Can't be any worse than his original figure.

    Man, they look even worse standing next to each other. Blockformers.

    You are 1000% right, but you know you’re talking with fighting words now…

    The G1 udder has had raw, bleeding teats for years now, but even when Hasbro branches out to other continuities, they gotta be G1-ified.

    Does that mean Legacy Prime Soundwave will be both a Predator Drone AND a cassette player? That’s gonna be funky

    Doubt it, they literally call him “Prime universe Bulkhead”. He looks nothing like him, so people would have the same reaction.

    Change is fine, it's just that this isn't really a change so much as a lazy design. It's literally just TFP bulk's head on a Geewun body.

    Friday for sure. This is just a little taste before we see the whole thing. Pretty sure they did that with Primal and one of the first-wave deluxes last year when Kingdom was about to be announced. Altho I may be completely wrong, but they have done that kind of thing before. Reveal a few new figures from the new line to hype everyone up, then go onward and release the rest once the time comes

    It’s not, though. BDEE8CFA-DA83-4B54-9CFA-5AABEAB8B093.jpeg
    I can’t find a truck with a window like this, but it and the TFP vehicle are both closer to this: F6EBEE0C-FB0D-48E2-AF94-78F2AB67F077.jpeg 11FCE8E5-A16F-4DA8-B9A0-1132CA25F314.jpeg A9CBB80D-5C97-4CB9-BDA7-904833DA87AF.jpeg


    Compare those to the new toy which is flat nosed and has a canvas covered truck bed:
    FD9EF2B0-29BE-4C61-9563-B9669C5D4ED1.jpeg
    Which is closer to this:
    C586A4EF-AC29-4A91-9857-26F95317FF6F.jpeg



    This new toy doesn’t match the animated vehicle mode at all. And definitely doesn’t match the TFP design

    If they made some changes to the shield/backpack this would work much better as animated bulkhead

    Worse than a G1 Body, it's a pretty rectangular and featureless G1 Body. It somehow has less flair to it than the old CHUG Inferno did.

    That is not flattering.

    And is a prime example why Sunbow accuracy isn't always the best route.

    Not really? The Animated vehicle mode doesn't look at all like the Prime version. It looks more like a military truck.

    people say that we’ve had G1 for 15 years, when we’ve really had updated G1, IDW G1, G1 inspired, kinda G1, and G1 ish and it’s only been recently that we’ve gotten actual G1.

    So maybe it’s everyone else’s turn to get kinda ‘their fiction’ and when they turn 50 they finally get their slavish version.

    That's actually really cool seeing 2000s Bulkhead in G1 style.

    If anything, at this point I'm failing to see an Optimus retool out of him. I could see it, but not without altering the mold almost completely.
