    looks cool but I'd also make some shoes to make them look taller if they really want to make them look like the animation models

    Hm, kind of neat. And fairly reasonably priced by the looks of it.

    That's pretty damn nice. I do agree, though, that the legs look too short. perhaps some sort of addon that attaches to the original feet when they are angle straight down would help.
    2 useless words for people who would rather have an upgrade kit for the G1 toys.

    Huh.... I still think part of the charm of G1 Ironhide and Ratchet is their headlessness. But I admit those look pretty nice! They would definitely fit in more alongside the other Autobot cars. I passed on the previous add-on heads, but I might bite on these!

    Looks cool, but if you're going to have to buy half a robot just to make your G1 toy better, you're better off buying a newer version of the character.

    Not necessarily. I think the G1 toys with those upgrades look way better than the pitiful Universe/Henkei mold.

    Was my first thought. Now if it was an add-on for arms and head that transformed into and replaced the separate 'trailer' roof part of the original toy then I'd be more for it.

    I never bought the previous head sculpts, but I may have to get these they look great from the one picture. I can't wait to see a review

    Somebody should just make new cartoon-accurate Ratchet/Ironhides. Because at this point the only way to make them look like the show is to give them new everything.

    iGear only does copies, so they would be better for this. The less engineering and design involved, the more iGear will be prone to this!
