    Does the figure come with the cannons? Or do we have to buy him separately?

    Due to the cannons being permanently fused to the arms, the figure has been split into 2 different products. You buy the main body that includes the chest, legs and head, then you buy the arms/cannons.

    They attach via quantum entanglement so if you try using replacement arms without the cannons, they will not work.

    Hmmm interesting, I know that "beauty" or what people consider attractive varies among cultures, in the past the "sense of beauty" was linked to fertility (big hips) and the "atractiveness" was more "homogeneous", a time where "big women" were more desirable.

    Ah that explains why the MPM is better than the Leader.

    MPM hips to waist ratio > Leader hips to waist ratio

    Is that $70 better though? I doubt it. Also, at this rate given that mpm7 already came out, I am thinking this figure may never see the light of day

    Leader Ironhide is trash and in no way is it better than MPM Ironhide. Unless you like bigger toys. And he is coming out in November.

    You honestly believe that the figure will not come out? Like. You think that’s an option?

    Isn’t is obvious that they pushed out Bumblebee to coincide with the movie? Also Red Alert (14) came out before Soundwave (13). So there’s precedent for the line breaking order.

    Ironhide has always been slated for November. Bumblebee was just shoved out early in late September. It never affected Ironhide’s tentative release date.

    Yes.

    Obvious based on...?

    - different line from a release almost 5-6 years ago.

    That's not true- this initial release date was the end of August

    Well it is coming out, so let's stop speculating that it isn't.

    It was always November for the Japanese based TT release so that was what I was quoting. Sorry I didn't know the Hasbro release was delayed.

    Precedent is precedent, but if you want to find a reason to believe the toy will just be canceled please be my guest.

    not a single MP preorder has ever been canceled. All of us in this thread have this preordered, or at least want to preorder it. Can you imagine the shitstorm if Hasbro just says 'well, i guess we will just not make this one fellas'.

    It is actually ludicrous for an adult to think that this finished product will get canceled. I can't argue this point or be sarcastic any more. It is rude of me to continue doing so.

    Please believe what you want. But we both know to cancel this item means they'd have to inevitably remove the cannons from the pre-production molds, and we both know that's impossible. So they might as well just make this figure.

    Yup, was referring to Hasbro release.

    There is definitely precedent for completed products getting cancelled. Don't know if it has happened with TFs (other TF lines) before, but it HAS happened with other toy and videogame lines.

    well of course things get canceled. but the figure is completely finished. It's just being moved back to not contend with Bee. Bee has a titular movie coming out soon. I fully stand behind the reasoning of Ironhide being shelved for a few months to make way for Bee. But we will know either way in a month when my MPM-06 AE Preorder ships with the Diaclone Maneuver Delta Suit :)
