    Looks like it's a little cleaner than the other attempt.

    Depending on the price, I'm interested :thumb

    These are a nice idea but I have two concerns (with both this and the Transfusions one)
    1- price. $40/$50 for an upgrade? (Double that if you want both Ironhide & Ratchet)
    2- colour match. Both Hide and Ratchett are painted. Gonna be tough to match that glossy red on hide
    Possible this will be cheaper as it doesn't seem to include replacement head?

    This one might be a bit better than the Transfusion one....I still would like them to do something about the front bumper though

    Front bumper bothers me too. Ass wheels I can take them over leave them but I know they bug some people.

    I would think this one would be cheaper, but Transfusion said they're also going to offer their kit without the head, so I guess we have to wait and see. I agree the color match is going to be tough, but hopefully both companies do a great job. I know I won't be placing an order until I have seen a couple of reviews.

    I love how there are 3 different design fixes but TT couldnt just encorporate this into the design. Im guessing some executive made a parts count decission. I hope there is an interview on that aspect one day.

    I'd get this as a two pack, shipping is expensive, they shouldnt bother selling it separate. Hopping for tight tolerances and color matching. Cant be worse than the reds on xtb's windcharger.

    Agreed
    Yup the Black Apple version is what I would like also, too bad it's only a custom from Asia. :(

    Nice, but it'll all come down to price again for me.
    If they come in at a reasonable cost then I'm in for both.

    Another challenger enters the race, huh? How about that. Definitely interested in this. Price and paint apps will probably determine the winner between it and Transfusion.

    Yeah...I don't want to sound cheap but I don't know if I really want to spend $80 to fix two sets of hip skirts that shouldn't have been there anyhow. I don't like them but I'm sorta at the point I look past them now.

    If this is reasonably priced I might go for it.

    Ok, the hip flaps on this mold aren't the best ... but ... it looks really disproportioned without them - the crotch diamond is far too small.

    I wish these things weren't so expensive. For $10, I'd buy them instantly. At $40 to $50, it really doesn't matter to me as much especially when that's half of what I'd spend on a whole new figure.

    Do the gappy bits bother me? Yea I guess a bit, but for $50 I'll probably hold off.

    Or maybe see what the new voodoo ironhide turns out like...

    I was all in on Voodoo Ironhide until I saw that a KO of the official Ironhide is coming according to TFDirect. I may get him now and then do an upgrade at only $35ish...
