    I like him. Tolerances are right and plastic is good quality, not too far off Hasbro/TT quality (Compared to my AM Bulkhead).

    Paint apps are good and it seems to tab together nicely also.

    The blasters are a really nice touch and give him that added on-screen look.

    I ordered mine from Show.Z

    Went with the Economy shipping and it was with me here in the UK in 5 days!

    mine is here as well and I have the same experience! My left shoulder is a little loose but can still hold his hammer out. Good quality, I’d say if hasbro Prime plastic is 10/10, this is an 8.5. Not quite the same but almost there. Paint apps are well done, nothing looks cheap on it, and I love the hammer.

    My box was unfortunately a little smooshed in transit.

    Edit: played around some more, transformation still complex for a hasbro figure, but makes for a solid car. Everything tabs in well, but the hammer rockets don’t fit quite perfectly on the sides.

    That's good to hear. Hopefully it doesn't have the yellowing problem that other WJ and BMB figures have suffered from. Seems like APC has legitimate competition now

    I've seen some people slightly mistransform bulkhead. His headlights can angle up and the doors are supposed to sit over them so they peek through the windows like they did on the show model

    Got Bulkhead yesterday and have only fiddled wiht him a little. I like him. One shoulder's a bit too loose for the hammer, and I still need to fully figure out getting the green parts of fully onto his arms as they didnt seem to fully get on there at first, despite doing what was shown. But, all's good.

    The more I look at this the more I love the hammer. It’s so much fun and adds a ton of character. It’s got lots of play options, and it higher quality than bulkhead’s mace-hand. APC would/will have to come up with something amazing to be better than this.

    Are there serious Black Mamba issues I should be aware of? Never bought any of their products before.

    Nah. Most of their stuff is pretty decent. Standard run-to-run QC issues with their cheaper KOs sometimes, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    For 1:1 scale KOs I would say "yes" - they're definitely competition.

    I'd love someone to do a Dreadwing as mine fell to bits on the knee.

    Another one is an OS Hardshell.

    So, yeah he's literally what Black Mamba does, if this is them by a different name. It's literally a high quality 1 to1 KO of the First edition Prime Bulkhead with an added hammer. My original F Prime Bulkhead is somewhere and holy hell does this thing just feel like a carbon copy when you do the transformation

    Got in their Megatron, today. WOW. He's huge! He doesn't feel as sturdy as I'd have liked, the plastic has a lot of give in some areas (too much) and not enough in others (feels like a shell's about to break), but I really like him. No excuse for Hasbro to make the official one so short. None.

    What battery(ies) does his fusion cannon take?

    apart from the darker green, there's no difference.
    the yellow parts aren't even silver like the japanese deco had
    apparently this is accurate to the japanese deco, at least the one in the pics on tfwiki. i do like these colours more tbh and if it is the same price then i'll get this over the other one
