If there has to be a gimmick, I prefer it to be on the weapon, that way it can easily be tossed aside and ignored.
I think the Starscream looks pretty good. I hope he fits in well size-wise with the rest of the crew.
The Bulkhead doesn't look quite as bad as the first pictures made it out to be, but I still fail to understand why they scrapped the superior FE version. Glad I got the FE version, though.
