    I'd say it would be absolutely awful if people expected an official Ironhide and got scammed because they look super similar.

    I bought a KO too for the same reasons. Any improvement, even minor, is welcome.

    What colours are wrong?

    Yes! I do plan picking up a version done by LT or something. I hope they will make the improvements and apply an superior paint just like on LT-02. Maybe some tinted windows would be nice! Maybe black plastic for the panels on the arms.

    If I had to guess, it looks like the first movie voyager ratchet but heavily customized.

    Screw it, I ordered another from Amazon. I will keep which ever is better at tabbing together, and pay less than the original price I got it for ($100 vs. $82). This figure really is a looker. Dare I say the most accurate looking mpm to date. At that price, he is worth it. His tabs were a terrible decision, but in hand, it really looks like Ironhide jumped out of the screen! I used to think my dotm leader Ironhide looked so good with the Fans-Want-It cannons, but the mpm is far better. The transformation isn't really difficult (again, just frustrating because of the tabbing issues!!).

    So what are all your opinions on KO Ironhide? Plan on purchasing a copy? I think I'm going to wait for more reviews on him until I purchase it. Or would you all recommend waiting for a possible LT or Black Mamba version (doubt weijiang will do one any time soon since they don't often do mpm's)

    An OS KO has been shown. I'll get that depending on quality.

    Well, I sheared off one of those hood tabs on my copy, too. That's the first TF I've broken part part off of since Generations Jazz, I think.

    The Barricade comparison shows that all the KOs in the pic above are oversized.

    Those pics were out months before MPM6 and MPM7 were released. If those are really KOs, then it's a huge problem that KOs are in development before the original molds are even released
