    I beg, plead, request, insist, demand, and command that Hasbro make a Leader Grimlock.

    Leader Bulkhead:

    Vehicle mode= :thumbs2: 
    Robot mode= :thumbdown 

    How can anybody like that big fat green piece of crap? I mean C'mon! The vehicle mode is really cool looking but that bot mode is friggin ridiculous. Let's be honest here!

    Bulkhead looks killer. I can't wait to put the animated figures in the showcase that holds my vinyl toys.

    after reading your comment i took a second glance. imo leader bulkhead's botmode looks pretty close to the voyager version, only difference would be the sidearms; which could be removable.

    *Looks at own past posting in thread*

    Yep, I'm completely honest, and this coming from a guy that initially HATED the toon designs, ah well.

    I'm kinda with you here... Unless the photo's squeezed or something he looks disproportional. Vehicle mode's pretty badass, and I'm sure the scale will fit in with the other deluxes, so it's very promising but I want to see more of the robot mode before I'm sold.
    And yeah, I'm pretty sure this implies he'll be getting some serious upgrades in the show...

    So this Prime that self-transforms... Are we assuming we can just push a button, sit back, and watch him transform? If so, that's pretty sweet. Might make up for the visible joints and fanny pack

    Thinking about it, Leader Animated Bulkhead will be the perfect head-to-head partner for Leader Movie Brawl/Devastator. Hand-to-hand combat scene will be done.

    Other people don't have the exact same tastes you do, that's how.

    Leader Bulkhead looks amazing. I am completely flabbergasted by just how insanely awesome he is. I don't think I'll be able to talk myself out of buying him. :lol

    Love the size, hate the guns on his arms, and REALLY hope they're removeable. But I'll overlook those to have a Blukhead who's TALLER than Bumblebee.

    Personally, I like to try and keep the same proportions for the toys from cartoons and the movie as they are on the screen. Of course that's not alwasy realistic but I certainly don't like to buy every class of the same figure.

    As nice as the Leader Bulkhead is, I think I'll be passing - Prime will probably be it for Leader class. The rest will be Voyager or Deluxe.

    Getting a better look at both...

    ROaC Prime *does* look like he'll be a fully functioning, automatically transforming toy. The only part that would need motorization would be the hips to stand him up, and noticing that rather large...'rear fender' in bot mode, it seems that spot is packed with electronical goodness which may include a mechanism to extend and upright his legs. The arms, waist and head can all easily be spring activated to pop them into the right position.

    And on top of all that, he still seems fully posible.

    And as for Leader Bulkhead....god DAYUM does he look sweet. Though it's a shame to lose the mace, everything else is a MAJOR improvement over the Voyager. He'll be a definate pick up and a nice addition to my increasing large auto-bot military force.

    So can we judge from this the Bulkhead gets some kind of upgrade in the show at some point? What with the big ass guns and all.
