    I wish they would've given us the same face as the official.

    Would love to see a Picture with him in alt mode next to MPP10 and a normal sized MP both in alt mode.

    Watched the Review Video. What do you guys (and ladies) think: is it to big in alt mode next to the MPP10?

    I don't have him in hand but given that I think the original Ironhide scales better with MPP-10 in vehicle mode than with MP-10 I'd say MPP Ironhide is too large.

    I received my OS Ironhide figure from Taobao on Wednesday this week. Just had a chance to look at him and take some quick pics

    I have the OS with a Tanaka Tony KO. My copy is good. The only minor thing is his left hip ratchet is just a little weak I think because of the die-cast in his feet making it heavier.

    It appears that WJ painted the face grey instead of silver like the KO which might make the OS face look more elongated.

    With Ironhide out now maybe Ratchet is next? Overall I'm happy with him and hope WJ makes more OS MPs down the road. Prowl or Wheeljack please...

    That doesn't look like Ironhide at all. He should have side skirts and wheels that form butt-cheeks.

    TT has set that as the gold standard.

    Got mine yesterday and I'm quite pleased with the quality and finish of it. Same high standard as their MPP10.

    That said, I do think the side skirts on the original look better on him. They just help fill him out a little more horizontally, but that's just personal preference.

    If only someone could upscale the official Takara faces to this size.

    Still waiting for mine to arrive. Wish they made an updated face with Ratchet that is slightly shorter and wider.

    I'm kinda surprised that it seems like more people don't own this. Is it simply not as popular is MPP10 and its many repaints or AOE M01 Commander?

    I've had him about a week now, got him from TFS Express via eBay so no customs risk. He's very nicely done, and improves on the official in many ways, but he is a bit of a standalone (the only other OS MP I have is the 1:18 scale Sideswipe, and he doesn't fit with him). I have said before that I'd like to see this design at regular MP scale, but having him in hand I'm not too sure the tolerances would work (the new bumper parts reminds me of the thin bar in Apollyon's chest; it does the job but even at this scale it feels delicate). No rubber tyres either, which for some reason I was expecting as standard on OS KOs.

    He is awesome though. Actually makes me wish the whole MP line had been this scale all along!

    The lack of rubber tires is a bummer.

    I agree Rubber like tires would have been nice to have.
    I'm considering him - but as it would be starting another collection-in-the-collection I don't want to go there just yet. since I don't even have an MPP-10 yet or even an OSKO Bumblebee.

    Once they do Ratchet I may bite though.

    I was on the fence with this guy but toydojo has him in stock and they ship out if Texas so that's good for me. I have all the other OS figures, they're fairly cheap and good quality so why not.

    So he finally arrived. I love it but I can't tab in one side due to the clearance. The side skirt doesn't have enough room and not sure if I can loosen a screw or just sand down the panel. Anyone else having this issue going into van mode?
