    What do you find so average about him? Proportions? The fact that he shares some engineering with WJ? The toon colorscheme?

    I've searched high and low, can anyone please respost the photo of Earthrise Ironhide using his weapons sled with the treads from Brunt, or whatever the silver one of him is called.

    Thanks!

    He doesn't share any engineering with Wheeljack. He's just incredibly straight forward with his transformation, there's not really any cool tricks to it like there are with a lot of the Earthrise figures and his solid white colors just look so generic. He might be better if he was more toy colored just to add some visual pop to him

    There are a few different configurations people have come up with. Here's mine (note that it requires using Datsun shoulder guns to attach the rear treads)

    EDIT: just realized the second photo has Ironhide's gun at the back instead of the front - sorry if that's confusing.

    Wow!

    That one is super more intricate than what I had in mind. The one I saw simply had the treads plugged in, and was elevated a bit.

    Nice job though.

    Ah though I read that somewhere (didn't bother to analyze it myself). I was really looking forward to this initally (based on the photos we saw in the last big show) but the later non hand-painted pictures didn't impress me as much. Might be the white, so some orange could have helped there. I was still kinda on the fence, but if it's an uneventfull transformation on top of the gripes, then what's the point? I better put that money towards expending my Fasttrack army (who actually also doesn't seem to be getting the most glowing reviews...hmm :p ).

    Don’t get me wrong, he’s a good figure and doesn’t do anything wrong, but I feel like he might just be one of the most plain figures I own :lol  might be better when paired with runabout too

    Which is the best Energin Axe to get for ER Optimus? I want to display it on him so the Centurion Weapons Pack version is out (don't want the paint on his hand eroding away).

    The hand paint will scuff off. That's just how it is with any "port" that has paint in it. Only way to prevent is by not plugging anything at all into his hands and not just the energon axe. Our paint was already well scuffed off before getting the energon ax, so to blame it just on that would be incorrect.

    Yep, it's in the instructions.
