    I don't own Ironhide, don't dislike the mold but not sure about Ironhide color scheme. I think Crosshairs looks better and combine him with Sixgun will be a lot of fun.

    Something that's easy to do to make him that little bit more like G1, is to remove the front armored bumper off the car. Gives it a more pointy/angled look like the original.

    I missed out on that Pinpointer from BBTS, which is a shame. Any other decent options that are reasonably affordable?

    They’re from the Iron Factory Sixgun. I think they’ve been released with a handful off figures.

    Welp...

    [​IMG]

    I swore that I wasn't gonna get Crosshairs. Time to eat some more crow. Couldn't help myself in Target today, even though it meant having to customize a Firedrive into Pinpointer. o_O 

    [​IMG]

    I think I have a problem. :rolleyes:

    Crosshairs is better than Ironhide, but not as good as Ratchet, even though having made a Pinpointer for him, I might be biased.

    [​IMG]

    It's hard to recommend Crosshairs unless you are compulsive like me or a completeist. If you like this mold, and if you liked Ratchet, you might like this guy if you can find or make a Pinpointer for him.

    I'm assuming he's Pinpointer. All of the other gun Targetmasters have a parter, and Crosshairs needs his gun

    Despite not being a figure of high demand, I'm actually liking Crosshairs quite a bit.

    [​IMG]

    As a repaint of Siege Ironhide, Siege Crosshairs shares the same pros and cons as a figure like Ironhide did. The color on this figure may not appeal to everyone, but I do think the more vibrant and varied color scheme on Crosshairs makes this figure looks fresh, and some of the QC flaws on Ironhide like the side leg panels being easy to pop out has already been solved on Crosshairs, which is nice to see.

    I won't necessarily say Crosshairs here is better than Ironhide, but Siege Crosshairs isn't a bad figure at all.

    He’s a good fig with no QC probs.
    Ironhide & Ratchet already absorbed all my hype over this mold is all.
    If it was Crosshairs that was introduced for wave 2 instead of Ironhide i’d be all over him.

    His rims needed the red.

    Edit: comparison's added for thread

    Honestly, aside from not having his front wheels on his arms I feel like he wears the mold WAY better then Ratchet or Ironhide, maybe because the “Cybertronian” alt mode fits him better, but also the proportions in robot mode seem to suit him better. Possibly in part due to the color blocking?

    maybe the dark blue helps hide the arms just sitting there on top of the alt mode?

    He fits the role a lot better once you add bigger wheels -

    Yeah, if you have Crosshairs you need definitely need a Pinpointer of some sort. :)

    Just fine, they fold away. Look in the customs forum.

    Thank you LG Windblade, if I hadn’t picked her up I wouldn’t have bothered with Crosshairs.

    I like him bug I can't say that I love him.
    I'm glad to have an updated Crosshairs toy, and it's an okay mold. I've been enjoying him.
    What does sting is that Crosshairs was forced into a Cybertronian mold intended for Ratchet and Ironhide who no doubt will soon get more accurate toys while Crosshairs won't.
    If they wanted to give the Nissan brothers Cybertronian molds why they didn't use a mold accurate to G1 Crosshairs and redeco that into the Nissan bros is beyond me.

    Pre-ordered back in August along with Spinister and Apeface. Arrived today.

    I switched his wheels with Ironhide’s and now the extra color in vehicle mode makes them both look better.

    I really regret not picking this guy up when he was clearanced at $6.

    As much as I don't want a third version of a mold, he makes such a good Genericon.
