    I will make a red helmet with silver face and blue eyes, that is the most cartoon accurate.

    The thing i like on the Bullsfire figure is the helmet is more toon acurate.

    I don't think many people have this figure,
    It really is a shame Bullsfire never had a chance, with the almost simultanious release as FT version of swoop, well that is how it goes sometimes i guess...
    Tbh, the price was a bit too premium as well, especially with a lackluster sculpt as it had, i never could adjust to that sculpt, hence i designed a new one, still pretty happy with it.
    May make another few for some other figures i own, TR Scourge comes to mind..

    And wile i think of it, generations Kup, i think this would be my first pick as that sculpt is also quite lackluster!
