A big nope. The big arm guns donít seem to be hidden in vehicle mode - they just sort of hang off the side. The feet hanging off the bottom of the back bumper. The size seems out, and the proportions all wrong. Hardly seems like an improvement on the leader class toy.

The feet look like he has three sets of silver truck nuts attached.

Disappointing that the side cannons don't seem to have anywhere to hide in truck mode. But it's pretty clear they are prioritising the bot mode on these figures and on that front it looks amazing to me. Really look forward to getting this guy since I have um'd and ah'd for years about getting the leader class figure.

Really doesn't seem like a masterpiece level of effort put into this one...

He looks a bit short and fat. But overall, doesnít seem too bad. Will wait for better pics before final judgment though.

I've been looking for excuses to cut back my collecting and between Barricade and now Ironhde, I've found all I need to confidently not continue with the MPM line.

To me it seems the line peaked with Bumblebee at the beginning and is just sliding downhill from there.
