    With a few exceptions, one of my Transformers weaknesses, while it doesn't make the most sense in the world, is hands.

    I want my robots, unless appropriate (see: Cybertron Red Alert), to have hands. Leader Bulkhead is missing one in favor of that saw thingy. Which is kinda cool, I'll admit... but I want those two goofy hand things.

    Leader class guys are always a really large hit to the wallet anyway. I think I'll settle for the grossly and humorously scaled Voyager Bulkhead.

    Not bad. Kinda digging that Megatron blaster. I already was antsy for Bulkhead.

    These pictures are bizzare, the Megatron cannon is kind of cool but I wish Hasbro would supplment the transforming blasters with actual role play replica's.
    I'm no market expert but I think that toy versions of Prime's axe/Megatrons cannon etc would sell well once the show is better known.

    I think that pain-pink background is so those images could have transparencies used to paste them over things.

    Megatron blaster looks cool, though huge :lol  for the vehicle cannon pointing back at your own face.

    Bulkhead's not looking good. It's not supposed to look like that right?

    No. As usual, Hasbro's inept photo crew made yet another figure look like total ass thanks to not knowing (or caring) how to properly transform it before releasing the pics for mass consumption.

    All I can say is thank god for leaked prototypes & convention displays where the figures are (usually) transformed correctly - otherwise there would be a LOT that I would have skipped based on their ridiculous "official" pics.

    Seriously, this shit REALLY needs to stop. I don't know what's worse, that their press dept. are so challanged or that anyone higher ups in the company could actually sign off on these pics and give them the greenlight to be released.

    What they need to do is start printing instruction sheets before official photos are taken, so photographers can get the damn things right.

    Will Leader Bulkhead be more in scale with his Deluxe comrades, or do you think he'll be too big?

    Oh don't worry about him being too big. If anything, he'll still be a bit too small by comparison. No matter how big or small he is as a Leader class, it'll still be infinitely better than that micro sized excuse of a Voyager.

    Can't tell exactly. Some of the toy fair pics make it obvious he's kind of a short Leader, much like the Voyager version is short for that size class. I didn't see any photos with a really good angle on it, but it looked like leader Bulkhead is close to the same height (at the head, maybe a smidge taller) as (voyager) Starscream. Since SS is shown to be a little taller than Voyager Optimus & Megatron, it looks like Bulkhead might be in good scale with Optimus and some other Autobots at least. (based on most cartoon depictions showing Bulk at just a little taller than Op at the head, though a lot more massive.)

    Can't know that for sure though until some true comparison pics come out, ones where perspective and other photo factors don't confuse the issue.

    The reason the voyager was so short was because of his puny legs.
    The leader doesn't appear to have that problem.

    I think the Animated Megs arm blaster would be a good replacement for the Classics Megatron's Fusion cannon...


    I might have to buy one and see if it's easy to swap on to Classics Megs
