since looking at the prime designs... i've thought the same thing. i mean, i used to love the movie aesthetic but prime shows that not everyone needs to be blown in half and have 10 toes to look realistic.

anyways, i wish we had gotten this guy over kup. i hope he comes to the US eventually. great gallery.

Yup, I really don't see Hasbro going back and inserting him into a future Beast Hunters wave (since we already know Deluxe Wave 1.)

If you want Ironhide, import him. We live in a new age where it's not a guarantee that Takara and Hasbro will release the same figures anymore. He's definitely worth the extra money over Kup imo.

Oh alright. Wasn't sure if he was going to be released by Hasbro in the future, but if not his price isn't that bad, since he comes with a cool Micron anyways.

I bought Kup so Ironhide can have the canons. I'll give Kup the arms micron.
Or rather I'll give it to Dipstick, since that is Sergeant Kup's new name!

I believe it's the Burst Cannon. There's two named combos for it, that one and the one shown on the back of the box with O.P. and R.A.

I'd have thrown in that combo weapon too if I had an O.P. to form the gunbarrel!

I think an even better gun combo might be possible the CJ Micron has a specific combination with Bulk's ball and chain micron they fit together to make one big gun it's hard to explain but if you put CJ in robot mode and unfold the bulkfist into it's elongated form the two merge.

I'd not recomend doing it to often as they are a tight fit and you might break them... but I suspect that would look neat with Ironhide.

I know the combo you mean - it's two thirds of the combo that is formed using those two and Arcee's Micron. I've tried it on Ironhide - looks good, though a little hard to balance.

I still maintain that its a horrible bungling of that concept art and that it makes the mainline BB look like an MP.

"I would go as far as to say this is the deco that Kup should always have been released in"

wasn't the design created for ironhide anyway? with the kup version just hasbro being obstinate, like with their refusal to release breakdown?
