Pictorial Reviews: Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 2 Bulkhead and Smokescreen

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Site sponsor Kapow! Toys has provided pictorial reviews for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 2's Smokescreen and Bulkhead. Check out the reviews below.

Beast Hunters Wave 2 Deluxe Smokescreen

This was the one I was most excited about and in hand it doesn't quite deliver. Don't get me wrong, its a nice figure but has some issues, mainly the fact the shoulder assembly is quite fiddly and loose due to the transformation, your going to probably need to apply a little super glue or clear nail polish to get it to stiffen up a little. Rather than design this appears to be down to Hasbro's cost cutting measures which if they keep going this way won't end well.

Looks wise he is a great toy, he's got the whole door / wing thing going on along with a great face sculpt and some really nice articulation particularly in the leg area and a weapon which can be loaded with the missile on its own or with the electro-net accessory. The armour which many people said didn't look nice is actually pretty good in person, its very flexible plastic and not stiff so allows the limbs to move freely and removes any danger of damaging the item when clipping and un-clipping it.

Car mode is superb and a really nice race car aesthetic giving a real Le-Mans feel. The armour looks nice applied or left off and the accessories such as the missile launcher and gun can be mounted on the roof or the armour.

I was hoping to score this guy super high but sadly he only scrapes in at a 7.5 / 10

Beast Hunters Wave 2 Bulkhead

Bulkhead gets shrunk! and he's not too bad for it. Coming in the now familiar Roadbuster colour scheme Bulkhead transforms from him familiar 4x4 mode to robot and back again. He comes with a MechTech style buzzsaw which is activated by pumping a little switch causing the blade to spin round fairly fast. The decoration is also fairly cool with an animal style face imprinted into the plastic. Bulkhead himself could have done with his regular face but instead comes with a Beast Hunters helmet style design like Bumblebee before him, This has made him look slightly like an old fashioned deep sea diver. Articulation wise he lacks waist swivel which is due to the transformation and his forearms could have done with a fist swivel which is sadly lacking and therefore can impact his poses.

There is a lot of good points with regard to old Bulk but probably not enough to attract new fans, if you collected Prime you may have now decided its over for you but if your into Beast Hunters then Bulkhead is a worthy purchase just not an essential one.

Overall Bulkhead scores 7/10

Ya know...I'm inclined to agree with him on Smokescreen.

I have him, in hand, and I have to say he's not terrible, but he's not great either.
I give him a C/C- at most. His transformation is needlessly complex in the arms because they have to swivel one way, then back the other. (Really annoying and the shoulder ball joints keep popping the arms off.) He's incredibly thin in robot mode, whereas in the show, he's rather bulky. His shoulders DO suck and he has Voyager syndrome. (Fake shoulder caps) The arm kibble isn't nearly as bad as the pictures show, but it's still there and is ugly in the end. His "accessories" (and I use that term loosely) are pure rubbish. Rubber rubbish. (I'd laugh at the terrible terribleness of that statement, only if it weren't true.)

See, I'm a bit spoiled, here...

For kids, this is the first real Smokescreen toy and they'll be impressed. It works for kids and collectors who don't know about the Arms Micron (Knock Out mold) figure.

However, I have the Arms Micron version and there are so many things it gets right, where the Beast Hunters version doesn't. No kibble, the proportions are more realistic, the headsculpt is amazing.

On the flipside, the Arms Micron has stickers, whereas the Beast Hunters version has tampographed paint apps, so that's a plus in Hasbro's favor.

The Arms Micron is of course not perfect, like the shoulder pieces need replaced, the arms and hips need a different colored plastic to be more show accurate, but overall, it looks like Smokescreen just enough to be passable, but it could be damn near perfect.

The better figure? Arms Micron. The more show accurate look? Beast Hunters.

With a bit of work, the Arms Micron could really beat the crap out of the Beast Hunters version.

You're disrespecting the opinion of a staff member, are you trying to push your luck?

Don't be offensive. Respect the opinions of others.

I'm not disrespecting your opinion. I'm just asking in a different way how the AM version is the better figure.

And I'm not trying to be offensive.... sheesh, some people just can't tell when people are joking.

I had much the same reaction as Autobot032, though I only have Knockout, so I cannot compare to AM Smokescreen. I love the show accurate vehicle mode. However, I am more disappointed in the bot mode than either Autobot032 or the Kapow reviewer. I miss the days when vehicle kibble actually became part of the bot. The hood and headlights end up on the arms with a fake chest piece. This bugs me (though I understand why they do it, trying to match the complex transformations of the show to a toy. Can I blame Powermaster Optimus as being one of the first in this trend?) PRID Cliffjumper also bugged me, especially when First Edition was able to do it right. Maybe the next cartoon and toys will do better.

As far as Bulkhead, my son loves him. And he can have him. Again, I'll stick with First Edition. I don't like that the hands are so visible as under kibble and the front wheels and codpiece are going to break off on my son.

First.. I cannot wait to get my hands on Beast Hunters Smokescreen. Of course, as a regular ole TF Fan I have to wait till it hits the stores. Bulkhead is cool for what he is, but he isn't Bulkhead to me.

That being said, I am going to play Devil's Advocate for a moment because something bugged me tonight...

I have been on Seibertron for YEARS and log on SEVERAL times a day. It is a place of common interests, but it is also FILLED to the brim with sarcasm, differing opinions and, I think above all, a common degree of twisted sense of humor. I have seen it get nasty a few times, but mostly it's all in fun. I think MOST of us see that, know that and embrace it.

That being said, taking ALL that into consideration, since when can we NOT disagree or say something contrary to what a "staff member" said?? Manterax Prime wasn't being nasty, vulgar or anything wildly off the reservation... Doesn't "respect the opinions of others," go both ways? To me a "staff member" of a fan site where opinions vary and some people are very passionate about their hobby, telling someone they are "pushing their luck," seems kinda heavy handed and offensive to me as a member of this site... It comes off as, "We the mighty Staff Members will banish you forever if you offend us or dont agree with us."

This is supposed to be fun, and reading statements of that tone from a "staff member" kinda takes the fun out of it. We all have ways of expressing ourselves, and as long as it's within the realm of normalcy and decency...I don't see the problem. Let's keep it FUN and keep the threats and bullying to a minimum shall we??

That being said... I am going Hasbro all the way on this one...I will complain about QC when I get it.

Pah, Am Smokey is still a cop-out, and BH Smokey still looks AMAZING.

As for the "loose shoulders", are you sure you pegged them in properly? I recall from Peaugh's review that he made sure to mention that they were good and solid once you did. It's right at 5:00 if you want to go check for yourself. :)

First part could be considered offensive. I've seen people report and been reported for less. The second part is just ridiculous.

Simply asking "Are you serious?" would've sufficed. And I would've answered to the best of my abilities.

First of all, no one was threatened or bullied from my end or the staff's. Not once.
Second of all, no one said people can't be contrary to staff members. What he said is offensive, to anyone, especially staff members. "Are you insane?" is rude, no matter who it's being said to. If I were to say that to someone of the staff, on any board, I'd be receiving a PM. In no way were powers abused, or anything threatened by pointing out such a thing. There was nothing normal or decent in his comment. If you can't see that, then I don't know what else to say.

Trust me, I watched that video. Peaugh (and Baltmatrix) is just about the only reviewer I'm willing to watch on YouTube. He's good about finding all the ins and outs of a figure or accessory, that's pretty much the reason he's my go to reviewer. I followed that, all of it and he's still loose. Peaugh was right about the ball joints on it, too. They're quite loose but he'll hold a pose. (I do fear he'll be as limp as a rag doll once they lose their grip.)

Looks like someone stared to design Smokescreen great but then gave up halfway and half-assed the rest of the design process. I may pick him up and throw away that rubber crap.

Thank you for not being rude or offensive.

At this point I want both parties to step back, if anyone feels the need to continue the discussion, please pm each other so we don't ruin this thread any further.

Thanks.

As for my two cents, I think this Bulkhead mold looks like crud. Poor panel fits, annoying (to me) swirly plastic, completely obvious body parts visible, and the head looks nothing like him. They might as well have called him by a different name, because only the basic proportions of his vehicle mode suggest it's Bulkhead.

Smokescreen is okay. I'll get him to complete the cast (and paint his head more accurately red), but I'm not fond of the arm kibble or the "armor" in robot mode. It covers NOTHING!! How is that supposed to protect him. Anyhoo..

Is it just me, or does Bulkhead look like a transformers/TMNT crossover? Awesome.

Oh yeah....hehe. I'm not that brilliant when it comes to editing stuff. I'm surprised I can figure out how to turn my computer on sometimes. :D Anyway, done.



Does anyone else agree that they should have just given the Deluxe BUlkhead a different name?

Roadbuster would be the obvious choice, as the deco homages him, but I wonder if that would have conflicted with the upcoming Roadbuster remold/repaint of FOC Swindle. Making a figure of a dead character isn't unprecedented in this line (e.g. the repaint of Legion Cliffjumper as Tailgate). Then again, the Beast Hunters treatment and his inclusion in the line wouldn't have made sense if he's supposed to be dead..

Smokescreen's forearms and feet are awful but I still need to add him to the collection.

Definitely getting Bulky, if only to add a Neo-G1 Roadbuster to my collection. Smokescreen looks good to me, too.

Oddly, if they'd have used the normal head, viking head, or Roadbuster head... I'd have gotten it. But this one is too simple - and not very Bulkhead invoking. Probably going to pass.
