Actually, a Bulkhead Deluxe in Sharkticon deco would be a fantastic troop builder...especially with a new head. It has a load of nautical steampunk vents and such. Even with a truck mode, I could forgive.
So yeah, looking at getting just Prime, Shockwave, and Megs... plus maybe Roadbuster Bulkhead.
I'm a tough sell, huh?

The review was interesting, but I found it extremely annoying at the same time. Nothing has shifted my opinion here. Sharkticon Megatron is not joining my collection.

As for Megs, still not feeling this as Megs, maybe with a head swap I could get behind it as Gnaw?

Wonder what that might be.
Doesn't sound like a title fitting for the Exodus Trilogy, but the author did mention writing two books,so maybe this is the other book from the next Ex one.

. I all of the sudden appreciate the review all the more now.
Plus Gwar was formed in Virginia so the accent fits to (maybe?).

How did you make it that far? I pressed play and stop so quick i almost got whiplash What's with these reviewers and needing some weird mascot to make us feel even more awkward while watching grown men talk about toys?!

Green guy aside, this looks like a must buy. Original and well executed idea. Good homage. Doesn't look ridiculous like most of the BH toys. (no offense to any BH fans, but Bee, Ratchet, and many others look quite silly — and very much aimed at a target audience about 15 years younger than the first wave of TF:Prime. IMHO.) Glad to see this figure crop up.
