    Fans will always find something when the complaint is primarily about accuracy.

    Because the closer you get to the original the more the differences stand out and the angrier people get.

    See: ER Prime's grey fists.

    No. He will be the Erector homage or I will say a swear.

    I like that with this new Bulkhead you'll be able to have the case of Animated in G1 form, ER Prime, ER Prowl, ER Ratchet, Netflix/Worlds Collide Bumblebee and Legacy Bulkhead.

    What an awful way to do Bulkhead. A terrible rendition of the character, and all because, what, Hasbro wants to maintain this idiotic, self-fulfilling notion that \"only G1 sells\"? With UT Metroplex at Titan Class and more expensive than previous ones, it\'s honestly like their intent so far is to sabotage these non-G1 guys. \"Well, Metroplex was accurate but didn\'t sell\" after putting him at a pricepoint that\'s always been hard to move. \"Well, we brought back Bulkhead and he didn\'t sell\" after making a version that looks nothing like him besides the headsculpt and color scheme. Whee. I would hope Bulkhead is just the weakest of these and the rest will be better executed, but man did this kill any hype I had for this line finally bringing some fresh air to the franchise\'s shelf presence again.

    I-I don't think Hasbro is trying to sabotage a line of toys they want people to buy, my man. That's getting into tinfoil hat territory.

    Willing to bet I'm the only one that wishes the new Arcee had a G1-style head and not a Prime one

    Alright I just want to know, are you going to be able to see through the figure with these gaps in vehicle mode?

    The truck mode is awful in its shape though, that's its main issue, it's just flat and boring.

    I'm disappointed to see the lack of Animated references in Legacy Bulkhead but aside from that I'm actually digging how he looks. Yes, I understand he's supposed to be Prime Bulkhead and I get why a lot of people are upset. However, I'm viewing this as a G1 Bulkhead and I actually think he'll fit in relatively well.

    Just based on the new logo and backdrops, I bet the new packaging design will be wild! Here’s hoping the box will be a new shape as well!

    Gah.
    I was gonna have a big, well thought out, dialogued sarcastic hot take on this reveal ... but I just can't muster it right now.

    It's boxes, y'all. It's all boxes.

    It's boxes.

    That's the post. Good night wallet. You can sleep well tonight.

    seems the consensus on bulkhead is either you love it or you hate it. The latter is definitely more common.

    Nah. That was my point. We got some non G1 accurate before we got G1 accurate. I’m sure in the next couple of years we’ll start seeing some more accurate prime toys.

    I'm guessing they won't. Someone pointed out the new box shape was to make it take up less space when shipping. With costs what they are I can't see that going away.

    I am looking forward to some neon as f**k colors though.

    If bulkhead was a different character , I’d get it , but as bulkhead he doesn’t interest me . I like my prime bulkhead so much more and I have no problem mixing him into my chug collection

    I like bulkhead, but skids looks really bad tbh. His arms are too far from his chest, his chest is built in such a way it accentuates the hollowness, and the flap on his head feels like something we shouldnt still be doing (and havent for ages now). I might buy him still because I am weak.

    It's not even a garbage truck, it's supposed to be a military truck with a tarp over the back. But even in the 80's "G1" aesthetic those weren't as flat!

    Though now I do wonder how much of a mess that tarp thing is hiding for vehicle mode... jeez and you people thought ER Ratchet and Ironhide were bad.
