    Wow. I think Ironhide might be the first figure where I seriously consider past incarnations as options.

    I definitely agree. The HFTD deluxe was actually a lot better proportionally, and once you get rid of the weird cannon on the right arm, its good to go. That said, I'd still like to see what else this figure has in store

    Consider how the previous Movie Starscream toys store the weapons in vehicle mode, the way of how SS Starscream store its weapon isn't really the stupidest thing that I've see.
    (I don't hate the old 2007 Movie Voyager Starscream figure, but the "Weapon storage" of that figure in jet mode is truly...... something to behold.)

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I actually prefer not storing the weapons at all unless they can be 100% hidden away underneath or inside the alt mode. I don't like weapony bits sticking out of my alt modes.

    The HFTD deluxe is nice, but it’s too small for my liking, and I never liked the colors on it. Besides, my OCD demands I complete the glorious Movie One ensemble.

    Seeing it out of package, the SS Ironhide does look a little weird. I think the reason is that the waist is too narrow and thus the hips are too close together.

    Whatever, still getting it

    The MPM is certainly nice and it seems like this SS Hide is borrowing a little from that engineering.

    I'm a little weary though only because MPM is ridiculously expensive (for me at least) and it would be hard to put down money for it.

    I'm not saying it's right but that's why I'm leaning towards an upscaled and improved KO only because it would be a little bit cheaper than a standard MPM. Who knows though maybe I could find an MPM on a good discount. I guess I'd still have to see what the MPM looks like with movie bots from the '09 era as well.

    If they'd have just made the bumper hinged and fold flatter on each side...'shrug'. Still not a deal killer for me I don't think. I sold my old voyager ironhide and still regret it (I think from the 07 movie)

    There's been a long debate about that.

    Sorry I should have clarified. I meant an oversize of the Studio Series version. I feel like that would still end up being cheaper than the MPM and fall more into my price range. My bad.
