    So I found this at a REALLY good price and he's on the way! Here's a hint:

    My "I've been on the fence about this guy but I'm not paying $100+, for it and it's ugly but I want it so bad and I need it, oh you have it for dirt cheap new in box, well don't mind if I do!"

    DOTM Ironhide?

    Probably just for the alt-mode. When it comes to the bots DOTM one to me is superior.

    I'm happy with my DOTM one already, I'm not too particular on the alt mode and the robot modes have no big differences.
    That said if I'm able to get the ROTF one on discount why not..

    Can't wait til Havro reveals Breaka.....uhm I mean some random person in another country leaks him.

    oh yeah I think he worth it. I totally like Dotm Sideswipe better since he clears up his back so much better obviously but the new one is just so much better as far as paint goes to the point where I'll most likely partswap and switch them back and forth on my display from time to time.

    If I can only choose one, should I get Topspin or Roadbuster?
    Thank god we don’t have those obnoxious guys scribbling purple anymore doing leaks for us, otherwise life for us would be even more hellish than it already is.

    I gotta be honest that’s a pretty nice use of the word rancid.

    All hail Megatron!
    Thanks to a late night browsing of the deals page here a couple days ago, I was able to bag him for $26 on ebay. He's almost amazing in my opinion. Robot mode looks great minus the weird legs and the transformation. Otherwise, a nice addition to my collection.

    Ordered the DNA Designs Jetfire kit from ShowZ last night. Thanks to some points I'd saved up, I was able to get it for less than €30 posted, which is a pretty good deal I reckon!

    I was gonna guess Fireburst Optimus, but I see you've already confirmed it's leader Ironhide :p 

    Depends on what you're looking for I suppose. He's definitely painted better, so if you weren't happy with the DOTM version in that regard, and maybe prefer the hard-top roof version of the car mode, then it's probably worth it. If those are all just trivial details, then probably not

    Personally, I like the look of the ROTF version more than the DOTM version, but I don't think I'm gonna go out of my way to get him. Sideswipe isn't a figure I've messed around with much, so I'm not super eager to spend another €25 on essentially the same toy to stand around on my shelf

    For me I am definitely picking him up. The robot mode paint is just so much better especially the headsculpt. I also prefer the darker base colour which does feel more realistic in some regards. Vehicle mode also looks superb. I once thought about getting 2 dotm ones but now it's even better since they both look different.

    I would definitely recommend Roadbuster although he has a bigger backpack. Topspin us growing on me but I feel he's the weakest of the trio. The proportions and design choices don't sit well with me and roadbuster is much more solid for my copy. I do feel that roadbuster lacks paint so if you can I reccomend painting a little

    As some one who had both BA and BMB Prime, if BMB stretches the limits of your patience, stay clear.. I had the same issue and decided to get a BC-01 Optimus. That one is a straight up MPM sized MPM Prime, I now went for the BMB again and even consider the DOTM one cause he is fun.. keep him or find a BC Prime if scale is your thing.

    The fact that SS Ironhide set precedent for that happening on a non-exclusive item amazes me to this day.
