    To those of you who are bugged by the Deluxe Movie Ironhide having one cannon, and one wierd drone/gun thing, I found out a simple mod you can do to give him both cannons. The cannon from the DOTM Cyberverse Commander ironhide is the perfect size to fit where the drone normally would. I just used masking tape to wrap around the "hook" peg and it created enough friction for it to be held in place in his left arm. The best part is, even with this mod, he can still transform without any complication (just make sure to split the right arm cannon like you would normally). Lemme know what you think.

    Yeah, just another one of Hasbro's gimmic-over-accuracy tactics.

    I just want to say,if hasbro wanted a accuracy & gimmick figure,they could have made both his accurate cannons removable & be able to combine so he could hold them with his five millimeter hands.

    Looks like I now have a reason to get a Cyberverse figure.

    Awesome! I'd been thinking about cutting the left cannon off my Robot Replicas Ironhide, but I really like that guy, and this looks great. I even have an extra Cyberverse cannon from the Target exclusive blue IH. Thanks!

    Looks even better with the painted cannon that comes with the Leadfoot-blue Ironhide two pack.
