Matrix Workshop Ironhide Upgrade Kit Review

Commentary -

I have no clue why, but I've always had a soft spot for G1 Ironhide. The problem is, EVERY release of Ironhide was utter crap. G1 looks nothing like the cartoon version. CHUG is just a really bad figure. I even got Arms Micron (aka Japanese Transformers Prime) Ironhide, but that didn't work for me either. When I was younger, I actually repurposed Energon Inferno as Ironhide, but again, that isn't Ironhide at all. So when I saw the pics of Siege Ironhide, I was THRILLED to get him. But he had one small problem, not a great assortment of weapons. Well, Matrix Workshop fixed that

Assortment -

Matrix Workshop makes a lot of accessories and upgrades for almost every Siege figure. They range in something super small like ears for Jetfire, but they have made some really good weapon assortments for a few figures. Even the not perfect sets are still really great add on kits. The only things I don't plan on getting any of the kits are gap fillers. I just don't care about them enough to get. This set comes with a sniper rifle, two different pistols, and arm cannons which I think are meant to resemble Movie Ironhide's weapons. Ironhide has a bunch of 5mm ports on him and he can hold everything really well.

Pros -

Fills a perfect need for what the mainline figure lacks. Well constructed and everything fits well

Cons -

None that I can think of. The only minor gripe is, I want more and more and more.

Grade -

This upgrade kit gets a 10 out of 10.
