    Either or can't go wrong. I prefer Hoist a little bit more

    First off, a bridge design for attaching to Omega. Quite sturdy and with a nice arch to it.

    And now, five Ironworks, Astrotrain's box and missile pod, and a slow work day created this:

    Both you and @PrimalFury are making me seriously consider buying more Ironworks figures. Maddening and awesome at the same time! But I think I’m doing ok with just the one considering I created these.

    I just got in the first four Deluxe-class figures from Pulse. Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, and Hoist are cool. But the one I was anticipating the most was Ironworks.

    And his little buddy's here to help get him out of the package!

    He's got the box-cutter all set.

    He's a strong little fellow!

    "Thanks, little buddy!"

    So, Ironworks and his base. Is this the first... 'complete' Micromaster set we've got? I don't think any of the four-member teams or squads have all their members.

    I came up with this alternate layout for Ironworks. I like this better as it has more height and more ramps.

    first complete yes. Air strike patrol is second as it only has 3/4 members. An argument could be made for the spy patrol but the lack of buzzsaw and (repaint of ravage who’s name escapes me) kind of holds that back as well. The next Micromaster base, airwave, technically has their Micromaster partner, which is overair from the 10-pk.

    You know what. Those deluxe bases / "modulators" coupled with a fitting micromaster kinda reminds me of Polly pocket. Maybe that was Hasbro's transformers answer for Polly back in the day, think about it :D

    Keep one of the Siege Primes so you can swap out the head with Earthrise Prime. Looks better that way.

    I know it's 'just' the basic alternate mode for him, but I'm loving it. :D  I don't have the money/space for multiple Ironworks, but just one is still so cool.

    I'm envious of all your guys with your Target 10-packs. I sat around too long and missed out on them.

    I do you one better. I did play with my sister's Polly pocket when I was a kid (physically). And as of today I actually bought some of those revival Polly pocket sets for my wife. Only to play with them myself haha. The little Legion Classics Bumblebee ist the girls car of course ;) 

    Tomorrow I look forward to posting another Prime 6-gun combo :)
