    Just got him in the local toy store few hours ago.
    Overall observations:-
    1) If you already have Sergent Kup which is the same mold as this, you might not want to plonk in more money for something that is a simple repaint.
    2) The red used here is very nice but beware the excessive stickers used in the vehicle mode.
    3) The arms micron whilst looks great as a stand alone, looks out of place with Ironhide.
    4) If you have Sergent Kup, give his cannons to Ironhide, it works better
    5) There are no QC issues for the Arms Micron figure. Everything is solid. Which brings me to one thing- My Kup cannot stand and topples easily. But Ironhide stands without any problems. So figure.

    Here are some pics:-

    He comes with the Standard Arms Micron content - the Arms Micron, instruction sheets and the obligatory sticker sheet.

    Thanks for the review, but could you post a picture with the micron pegged on his arm instead of Kup's cannons?

    I did not take pics of those because the cannon sticks out too far and it looked ridiculous. I will try to take some later.

    Damn I think I may actually buy this when it comes to Ages 3 and Up. Even though he's not in the show I really like that design. Looks so much better than Kup. Dammit Hasbro why didn't you give me this instead of sea sick Ironhide

    Colors look much better as Ironhide than Kup. I'm not a fan of its Micron, so I'll be skipping this release.

    This mold has Classics/Generations written allover it.

    Neat. I picked up Kup (haven't opened him yet) and plan to do what you did and just give AM Ironhide the twin cannons that Kup has (I'll probably give Kup his Generations musket rifle or twin pistols of some sort). Ironhide's AM looks OK but nothing too great. Maybe paint him up silver since I don't dig the puke orange color they chose for him. Ironhide himself looks good when stickered up.

    Looks like those stickers on his doors have a red stripe on top which seems a little pointless. (Actually, based on other pictures it IS orange.. just a darker orange.) May also be doing some sticker shaving as well..

    Also its funny, looking at unstickered Ironhide straight on in robot mode, aside from Kup's Autobot symbol, they have the same paint aps.

    Glad i Pre-ordered this and Unicron when they were cheaper, i got Ironhide for $22 and Unicron for $49, i'm probably going to find a way to Change Kup's Head (Maybe give him Generations or Igear if those will even work)

    I did some quick and dirty mock-ups of the deluxe with the Cyberverse toy colors. ...because who know the Cyberverse version would have the more detailed palette?

    I hope you don't mind I used your photos, OP, but you took some really gorgeous ones.

    Kinda tempted to take some paint to my Ironhide when he gets here. Doesn't look to be too challenging, lots of big, flat surfaces to work with.

    Still think it's ridiculous that Ironhide gets the Targetmaster, and Kup gets the dual cannons. It's like bizarro-land.

    Is it just me, or does Ironhide not have any Micron warts that Kup doesn't already have? Is this a first?

    Both have the same Micron ports. No extra bit on Kup.

    Nah IIRC Darkness Megatron doesnt have any more ports than its US counterpart. Not sure about anyone else.
