    Holy smokes. Screw the MP, get the Ironhide mold and don't worry about the DOTM release!

    Looks great, but after the POTP Predaking set... I think I'll wait until after it's release and see how the QC turns out.

    Definitely bought.

    Even if QC is questionable, DNA are replacing parts on my DK7/8 kits without issue.

    Can't be any worse than MPM Ironhide anyway lol.

    Didn't know about that. My Grimlock kit is perfect so I am confident.

    This looks great. I wonder how much is involved in replacing the parts? Hopefully no pin removals.

    Wow.
    They took care of the bumper and gave him better feet. I just may have to get Ironhide to get this.

    I just wish they also had a little bit bigger arms for him.

    Wow, that’s a crazy level of improvement. If Ironhide had ever shown up around these parts I’d have had to pick this up.

    As someone who created their own folding bumper , I can most definitely tell you that the pin which holds the existing bumper in will have to be removed. It's SUPER simple and can be pushed out merely with a paper clip.

    Looks amazing! I have my MPM Ironhide all decked out though I'm not sure I need this anymore...

    However even if they re-release the SS figure with the dotm guns someday he won't have the folding bumper, ankle and toe articulation, or the knife...

    For me it's actually the small hips. He looks pretty top-heavy already but with the heavy iron guns it's a bit too much for my liking.

    Definitely bought. Now I have no need for the MPM, or the DOTM one that they're planning on releasing! Thanks DNA!

    FUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!

    This is bought so hard. And a pin punch? No risk of damage by using mine? The knives work as bayonets? Gives the legs more colour? I have never wanted an upgrade kit so badly before.

    This looks cool, but outside of the guns I can't really notice any differences in the example photos.

    Awesome improvement....sadly, he's still too small for my current collection. But impressive, indeed.

    Amazing. The bumpee alone makes a huge difference! Only problem is if this goes beyond $30 that will push the cost of ss IH to about $60. Anything more i will just consider mpm ironhide (used or ko) as it will have more paint apps
