I may be wrong but it looks like the chest parts with the lights are from the car, but then the middle part and the piece underneath are a separate panel...so it might be a 'half' fake chest XD

im not a fan of voyagers being downsized into deluxes, they never look as good.
and im skeptical of smokescreen...
Eh...its doesnt look TOO bad....

Who would've ever thought Takara would be the ones to cheap out and give us a repaint (I say repaint, theres hardly any paint on the thing)...
And yeah i noticed the blue sigil as well but it looks kinda nice XD Im kind of getting a Fast Action Battlers vibe from these two though :L ...

Hmph.

Oh well...it's a new mold nonetheless. I'm surprised. >:oP

Wait...the armor comes OFF!??!?!



HASBRO WON! SUCK IT, TAKARA! HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:


Sorry. :oops:

Now...all he needs a few changes in that color scheme; mostly the knee caps and head. That's where you come in, reprolabels. The question remains, who's #5? If Ripclaw's #6, Smokescreen's #8, and Bulkhead's #7, who's #5!? At least this means we're getting larger waves than last time. :APPLAUSE:

Definately not interested in anything Beast Wars/Beast Machines/Beast Hunters or whatever Hasbro wants to call this rehash this time, but that Bulkhead doesnt say Roadbuster but screams Brawn in my opinion, so a head swap and he could possibly be a Classics Brawn stand-in?

Comments seem keen on Smokescreen, but I thought we where getting a Knockout repaint as Smokescreen, not this beastly thing? :???:

Smokescreen looks like his armor is all detachable. That makes him a win. Bulkhead looks interesting. It isn't something I need but I'm tempted. The Animated chest is a cool nod.

Just noticed the dragon face on Bulkhead's saw XD Bulk looks like he may have a visor as well. I also laughed when I saw that Hasblow has left Smokescreen's kneecap whole entire shin facing sideways in the official pic :APPLAUSE:

Smokescreen looks quite nice. Still impressed by Hasbro's incapacity in 2013 to communicate effectively on its new product releases.

I really don't know why people are pissing all over the TakaraTomy Smokescreen. He works really well. (In person's much better than pics.)

If the armor comes off of this one, then he might be a must buy on my list. Might. If it doesn't, then he's a definite pass and I'll gladly stick with the AM version I have.

If the armor comes off and it's a straight forward Smokescreen figure, well then, Hasbro, I'm impressed with your sneakiness. Very. I'm still not a big fan of the figure, however. That fake chest looks terribly fake. (Fakes are fine when they're done right. This one screams "I'm not real") Plus, from what I can tell, he does not have his door wings. The AM, once the Micron is attached, has wings.

I'll have to see more before I make a decision, but uh...as of now, AM Smokescreen is fine with me.

It looks like has some sort of wings in the package. I'm fairly impressed. If the armor comes off, it will be a purchase. I also hope his alt mode isn't further shrunken from the PRiD line...

Bulkhead looks pretty cool but I don't need any more Bulkheads, and I certainly don't need one in deluxe class.

Bulk's deluxe size now? Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Nice that there's actually a Smokescreen on the way, just wish it was before this Beast Hunters stuff started. If the spikey stuff is removable great, but I wouldn't count on it.

Wouldn´t mind getting a spiky Nockout, but I really hope 005 is a new beast.
I love the Smokescreen, but Bulkhead is an easy pass for me.
So far Beast Hunters seems like an awesome line.

im glad theres a new mould of this guy as i already have knockout. think smokescreen's the only major character i have left to get. not keen on the animals but i might stump up for leader class predaking.

wonder if we'll see a prime shockwave
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

I think I like AM Smokescreen better than this one.

Bulkhead shouldn't be a Deluxe, but I like the mold and the paint scheme so I might get it and just consider it a Roadbuster.

I might buy the AM version if this Smokescreen is capable of doing a head-swap. Otherwise, I'll wait for the possible Reprolabels set. Some of the colors are atrocious.

It's the doors. You can see some of the red in the same place on the vehicle mode's doors. One reason this version is superior; door wings instead of micron wings.

Seeing as how SS has the removable BH armor, the only issue I have with him is the blue details on his head. Hasbro simply used the wrong colors. The crest should have been white and the eyebrows and beard should have been red (which is used on the figure's knees and elbows). I don't get the reasoning.

And that Bulkhead shall take his rightful place on my shelf as a Prime Brawn (seeing as how his GDO figure died before production).
