I got Ironhide over the weekend love him, ended up ordering Ratchet as well (though it's from ShowZ so won't dispatch until after CNY). I understand why people might not like the van mode, but I love it! I don't really care about accuracy, I'm very much going off "vibes" and I think it's a really cute somewhat chibi van. Bot mode is obviously a huge improvement over v1, I don't think there's any debate over that. That said, overall this round goes to Magic Square IMO - which, tbf, I totally expected because their Ironhide is absolutely fantastic and probably one of my top 3 toys of last year, so NA not clearing that high bar isn't really an issue, this is still a really fun, well made toy that I'm glad to have in my collection.
