    Constantly quoting people like him kinda defeats the purpose of ignoring...

    I don't exactly hate Bulkhead, but the slightly more realistic take on his alt mode doesn't jive very well with his still-very-Animated robot mode. It's interesting to see Hasbro's approach, almost a compromise, with him, Rollout Prime and Earth Megatron, perhaps because a collector has an easier time of picking up $40 and $50 TFs than kids.

    I prefer the smaller figures most times as well, though I'm thinking/hoping the leader class figures might (big might) work well with other Autobots in the line. Megatron has already been shown as quite large, and if Bulkhead follows a similar pattern to the Voyager version (which was thick yet shorter than some deluxes) by ending up only a smidge or two taller than Voyager Prime at the head, then I'll be quite happy with it.

    RO&C Prime though, is just big, so the kids have something to hold onto while pushing it along the floor like a handcart. :)

    True, or we could see Bulkhead and the Leader class in general as aimed at the older end of the kid spectrum, with Legends and the FAB-type stuff for the little brothers out there.

    Wouldn't mind that, although even the smaller figs are much cooler looking in person.

    Also, MONKEY ASS!!!! :lol

    'Playskool'? Why yes, they ARE meant to be played with by children! :lol 

    While I'm generally more for show accuracy myself, that Leader Bulkhead really is sweet! I'll settle for the littler version, tho, that I can scoot around on my floor like a little kid!

    Less show-accuracy or more undilute badass-ness?

    It'll be a tough choice for most I imagine. I think he looks awesome personally. ROaC Prime's arms look strangely short, but if his gimmick works properly he'll be cool.

    Also, I will never, ever understand how people can say "playskool" derisively about a line of toys primarily aimed at children, but there you go.

    OMG Check out the size of those cannons on Bulkhead. Even the gun turrets looks damn cool. You can put this guy beside Movie Leader Brawl and they would look like brothers.

    I'm all for show accuracy, but the paramount problem with Voyager Bulkhead is that he's smaller than Bumblebee in bot mode. That's hardly show accurate, regardless of how much his mold looks the way he's drawn or how big the alt mode is by comparison.

    The neat thing about Leader Bulkhead is that this is the first time where the toy is actually more detailed than the way the character is drawn on TV. Usually it's the opposite scenerio.

    But who knows, maybe BH does get a few more details like arm/side launchers as the show progresses.

    QFT!

    I can't picture my 8-year-old-self going to the U.S. on vacations and getting my parents to buy me a cart full of toys worth over $300. But my older self with a credit card? Yay! :D 

    Tell me about it. I think I'll have to get both.

    hmmm look who quoted maybe you'll undertsand what I meant.. If not then, the list of people that the guy ignores keep getting bigger and bigger. Well I said the reason for that is because more and more people are realizing how rotten these figures are and how playschoolish they are...

    I just did not understand what you meant when you posted. I have no problem at all if you do not like these animated figures, but these figures are for young children. You people that do not like the animated styled toys are lucky that Hasbro has continued the Classics toyline.

    Man, I LOVE that Bulkhead figure! I only wish they would cut a little down on the detail, cause it kinda just adds to what he looks like in the show. It's sorta like the "Masterpiece" of the Animated line.
