Got this set in on Saturday. Of the two (Megatron and Ironhide), this one is the weaker set. It's shoddy feeling (in spots), too much flash and too many sprue points (jagged, mind you) and the fit and finish is not up to snuff. It was due in October, according to the front page, and it seems like it was still somehow undercooked, while being late by a good bit. That said... It does look good in robot mode, both with the normal and weaponized arms and the torso fill of the wing assemblies. (It's like... Hasbro, really? C'mon, they did it... ) and tank mode looks a lot better and filled in more. Also, more film accurate. Transformation has never been a strong suit of this figure, I've always found it rather annoying to do, what with forcing this and that through this opening (that barely fits) and snapping that over this while holding this here and forcing that there... Meh. The new gun arm makes it even worse and good grief, that uneven wing thing... Ugh. (Yes, I know it's been addressed by other posters, so I'm not bringing anything new to the table, just angry/venting.) On the plus side... Removing the gun arm actually makes the transformation easier, even easier than the Hasbro stock configuration. Everything has just enough clearance and locks together nice and tight. Problem is, that makes him a definite partsformer. So it's back to kind of sucking, for me. I would say it fixes more than it breaks, it does make the transformation easier (though that's the fault of Hasbro's design, they didn't get tolerances and clearance right...) and it's stupidly easy to install. Oh, and lest we forget, you end up spending on one figure/one kit, which is actually cheaper than spending on two versions of basically the same figure to get the "kinda" , "sorta" , not really "same" results, (...sort of) plus added features not included in either version of the figure. So, keep some of your money and buy the original figure, don't buy the Target repaint/remold, but get this kit, and you'll save $5.00 but have the best of both worlds. The splitting seam on the gun arm is infuriating, though. Good grief, the quality is lacking in the execution. Ugh.
