    Ironworks is the first of an awesome concept. Making a unique bot and the classic micromaster stations. Yes you will be reminded of the Siege Weaponizers by Ironworks and the partsforming but that is part of the fun of Transformers like these. Base mode 1 and 2 are awesome to have .I personally prefer his tower mode over his other mode but he is missing his classic windmill (radar) piece that it should have come with. Trent Troop has it via shapeways to correct that oversight. Really you can build it anyway you wish.Powering up your other figures with its parts and others will surely happen to the extreme. I really enjoy this deluxe a lot. Its unique gimmick is right up my ally. It extends the micromaster playability and also your other bots. I cant wait to get the other modulars I hope all come in earthrise.Airwave, Hothouse and Grease pit.

    Looks FAB

    Can see me getting multiples of this.

    The lack of interaction between Micromasters and larger robots was something the western line got a little wrong back in the day - but the Japanese line managed to do - and this fixes that.

    Plus connectable bases - something that wasn't really highlighted on the packaging in 89/90 - you can't go wrong

    Ah this is what I wanted to see, alternate base mode combinations :) 

    Multiples of each base and different bases will give loads of combinations for all the pieces

    I already liked the "weaponizers" from Siege and think this concept is even cooler, and definitely better implemented. I eagerly await to see the others, particularly a decepticon one to go with Astrotrain's extra stuff.

    Think I’m gonna buy a handful of this guy, he’s really great.

    Here he is with some diaclone stuff

    The base mode really is quite customizable:

    I’m a fan of giving him a Shockwave-esque gun arm: 42A02A5F-F1B7-4D1E-91E1-AFCA5924824E.jpeg

    I like that the most anticipated figure of the wave was the last to receive a review topic. Building up that anticipation.

    He looks great especially his weaponize mode! Can’t wait to see alterations to it. Lots of possibilities.

    Possibilities is the name of Ironworks game incidentally, finally seeing fan modes of his base mode is a real treat! Question on the bridge mode, can you plug his gun in one of the slots to give stability to the bridge?

    I don’t see a sinister-ness from this guy personally. He has a round friendly face, comes off very Autoboty.

    Tried to make the rocket launcher mode but the paint in the forearms were globbed on heavy. It's fine though, real life construction sites have chipped up paint too.

    I think you’ll enjoy him man. I personally really like him.

    He’s gonna be really fun to buy multiples of. I actually almost bought a second this morning, and I’m regretting not buying it. I have omega Supreme coming in the mail, so I think I’m gonna end up going nuts with this stuff.

    I swear, base building is one of my favorite aspects of transformers, it’s one of the reasons I loved titans return so much

    I had that problem also. It was so bad that I couldn't even get a peg into that hole and I had to scrape a bunch of it out with a knife.

    Yeah that hole was super stiff on mine as well. Just a little run around with a knife fixed it right up. I also will get another of these . Maybe its 2 minimum with these awesome modulars .

    I thought this guy was made of plastic, but I guess Ironworks.

    Can any of you with Ironworks and Prime see if Ironworks can attach to Prime's trailer AND be stored in the trailer while connected?

    Like if this can be stored in the trailer then become a base when the trailer is opened and still connected, that would be bad ass.

    I got him today and had to do the same. It was both easy and well worth the few moments it took.

    Looks great, always good to see base love. Man, if we got a Grandus and Sky Garry in this line I would be over the moon.
