    I'm half convinced that the obsessive GEEWUN of the last few years is because of the rampant budget cuts; like, if all you've got is a penny on the dollar to design a toy, you might as well make it a box because anything more elaborate is going to look worse.

    Kind of hard to without breaking the no politics rule, unfortunately.

    It's fine as long as the plastic isn't on load bearing joints and moving pins, shouldn't have to worry if this isn't the case.

    I think so but it's really hard to tell from the images I have - and instruction art only so it's possible it's not final.

    Could you comment if she looks anything like this? Or is she really G1. Like, Technobot Afterburner with PRID Arcee’s head.

    I rarely say this about a figure but that Bulkhead just does not look good. That mold feels like it could have been animated Wreck Gar instead. It feels even less fitting than putting Brawn's head on Bulkhead.
    Skids looks allright which is to say he looks like Skids should. Idk if I'll get him but I'll naturally be getting all the Diaclone bots that come out of it (and Screech should they choose to do that).

    Honestly, I didn't mind that since it at least it invoked Brawn's personality. That's what he sees in the mirror.

    And it was in a side line of exclusive AU repaints no one cared about.

    That all depends if the parts cast on the same sprue as Drag Strip's plausably translucent windshield will be part of any of those moving joints.

    Woa, what, you've seen her now?? That's awesome news! Please do share your thoughts.
    - Looking at the fist holes, the pins and the joints, does she feel like a super small deluxe, like ER Cliffjumper and Bumblebee? Another hint would be a crazy transformation for a deluxe or a lot of accessories
    - Do you know where the wheels go?
    - What does the motorcycle look like?

    And failed. I’m not overly fond of his original design but this is just a terrible design dis-regarding that.

    Yeh but is skids as well as his Repaints going to sell as much as an accurate prime knock out? I wouldn’t think so

    Bulkhead's legs are too long, but he looks like a decent figure aside from that. Liking him a lot more than Skids, who needs his shoulders pulled in just a smidge. I don't think either of them look bad at all though.

    Definitely picking both up, but that headflap on Skids is unforgivable. Good lord, was there no other way?

    Out of all of the Legacy toys you’ve seen so far, which is your favorite and why?

    I'm not sure if a character reveal thread has ever got so large so fast ever before TFW.

    No way I can keep up. So can I ask if this has come up? Why has Skids head got a massive flat back/panel? Modern Transformers have long done away with the need for a head to be part of the external skin or body paneling, and it was never a core feature of his toy or art.

    Skids looks like it was designed by whoever designed Tracks to me.

    The Instagram account which claims to have designed this Bulkhead also seems to have worked on Tracks.

    Everyone's like "gimme animation models" until it's time to put Skids's armpits below his nipples
