    Timhead design upgrade parts for Ironhide. Comes with the guns, a back mount, and there are even parts for the arm panels. I'm not sure the detail is up to snuff but the arm panel fixes and back mounting are really tempting. Is anyone interested? I might bite.

    No brace for the shoulders of any sorts? Or replacement c-clips ? I feel like those are two missed opportunities.

    Yeah I remember seeing that, it's by the same guy?

    I actually fixed the loose clip issue by giving the tab a nice coat of Crazy Glue Gel.
    Rock solid now. Almos tooo much now.
    Lol

    Yes. The guns plus the shoulder and arm parts is $30, but shipping to the US is high so I'm still on the fence.

    I wanted to ask, how well does future work as a solution to tighten the chest joints?

    Let me know what you think of it, please...
    If I get a cheap knock off I might be interested. But I'm tempted to wait for a GOOD knock off.

    My Hasbro version has the same tab that his does. Maybe it was changed in later batches?

    Yeah, so I messed around with it today. Seems okay, joints were actually tighter than my hasbro (especially on the right leg, my hasbro copy is real droopy.) You wouldn't be able to tell it from an official, aside from the paint on the left eye being a little bit larger but that's pretty much it. Shoulder halves seem to tab in better, and stay in place better than my official. the ab crunch was kinda loose out of the box but somehow has stabilized after a few hours lol. Transforms just fine, i had some trouble getting the door panels to line up but that's probably my fault. haven't found any paint scractches either on the tf direct of which i have a couple on my official.

    Overall for 90 cad (not sure about usd) he seems like a fine version of ironhide to pick up.

    edit: i'll also add, next to the official they're pretty much indistuingishable

    Are you in contact with him? Becuase I’d also like those pieces that lock the chest into place... he should sell both sets, make everyone happy

    Like, $30 just for the shipping. Not worth it anymore to pay $60 for what is basically a small accessory kit. I asked for just the guns and mounting assembly though and that he can ship for $10 or so.
    If you have instagram you can message him directly @capcomkai but I don't know any other way to get in contact. Maybe facebook. He gets them directly from the Chinese guy who makes them.

    $30 for shipping is absurd.

    Shame. I would've bit.

    I guess at this point, the only "fix" I'm interested in is the arm panel one. I've mitigated any issues with the c-clips by thickening up the pegs with Crazy Glue, holds perfectly now. As for the hood halves, they are Futured just the right amount where holding any poses is not an issue.

    Hopefully that kit will come down a bit in shipping price, or another will be offered.

    Those are some absolutely gorgeous shots, the ones of Ironhide in blue with some pink neon. Gorgeous, simply gorgeous.
