(Voiced by Bill Fagerbakke)
Every team needs its “muscle” and BULKHEAD is it. Designed primarily for demolition, BULKHEAD is a bull in a china shop, whether he wants to be or not. In battle, he’s your greatest weapon. Everywhere else… well, hide the breakables. He’s not overly clumsy, but he’s like a big overly enthusiastic dog who doesn’t know his own size or strength. BULKHEAD has a natural curiosity about humans and their culture. He’s especially interested in art, something that doesn’t exist on Cybertron. On some level the creative urge is an attempt to compensate for all the destruction—deliberate or inadvertent – that he causes. Problem is, most of his “creations” either fall apart, don’t look a thing like what he says they are, or are just plain ugly. Not that anyone would ever tell BULKHEAD that to his face.
Robot Mode Power: BULKHEAD is easily the strongest of the AUTOBOTS. That combined with battering ram arms make him the ultimate “Demolition Bot.”
Vehicle Mode Appearance: S.W.A.T. Assault Vehicle.
Character description from package "tech spec":
Super tough strong-bot
It's hard not to like Bulkhead. Despite being huge and strong, he's the kindest, most
gentle of the Autobtos and he always has other people's best interests at heart. He's also a klutz. That's
why it's so terrifying when the Headmaster takes over his body. Bulkhead regularly engages in wholesale property
damage purely by accident. With the Headmaster in charge of his body, will anyone be able to stop the tide of
Galactic Powers and Abilities:
> The strongest of the Autobots on Earth.
> Rarely uses air torpedoes because of accuracy issues.
> Buzzsaw originally built to slice iron meteors.
