In Transformers Prime, Bulkhead may be the friendly bruiser, but he’s got a rough past that can weigh heavily on him.
Back on Cybertron he was part of an action team that got called in for the really tight spots, going commando when things got too hot for the other Autobots.

Bulkhead: Something like that.
