    Roritchi looks good

    all orange plastic is replaced with purple

    Grey plastic is replaced with a good looking gold. Not sure if the gold is molded or painted tho

    Paint apps (red eyes) are still the same

    I love ya, Dann, but this is half right ID are a reliable source, the Information they get from Hasbro UK is not always, cf. The Siege Chromia and Netflix Exclusives debacles, Not-so-UK-Exclusive Armour-Up Cheetor, etc.

    It does not mean it is too much. What it means what I say is that for that money you should at least get the feet tucked in. How is it like im complaining it is too much. Look at other figures. They do not suffer from this kind of thing.

    I'd like to see as well. Where is Roritchi even being released? Is it a Selects?

    Not surprised for regular releases, exclusives is a whole different beast. That is just the point. Exclusives usually means better paint apps, more details and remolding. Not cutting costs.

    Prediction: Wave four will have a mainline Bumblebee sporting an Autobot symbol on his chest while the Netflix Bumblebee lacks the symbol to represent his neutral status from the series.

    Going off of the exclusives so far and Netflix releases, there’s better paint in some cases and retooling, but they’re still using existing Earthrise/Siege molds as a base. I hope for the best but I won’t be surprised if some of the new tooling seems cut short, Like the roof for Earthrise Ironhide that doesn’t address the feet sticking out of the back.

    He's clearly just dipping his toe in as an Autobot there. ;)

    At the very least Ironhide looks boss in robot mode. Something I've noticed about all the mainline figures (not necessarily something that carries over to Selects) is that they seem to prioritize robot mode accuracy over vehicle mode accuracy in most cases.

    Robot mode I have no issue with, I think it looks better than the Siege one, both in deco and sculpt. The roof add on in vanette mode comes across as last minute or cost cutting. Not a dealbreaker for me, but definitely threw me off when I saw the closeup screengrabs.

    I agree. I think there were better ways to handle the roof. My guess is they cut costs by having him utilize the same engineering as his Siege counterpart. At the very least though they could have done something to the roof to help cover those feet! :lol

    What if they filled in the bottoms of ironhides feet and made them look like the back doors of the van, its the bottom of the feet so it wouldn't effect the robot mode

    About a week until the Coneheads are upon us.

    With the way his alt mode is designed, it would still look pretty bad.

    if theyd extended the roof in order to reach the feet and cover the sides, completely, that would have worked, pretty well
