The biggest surprise from yesterday's article on IGN showing the new Transformers Earthrise figures was Ironworks. The name being connected to the Micromaster base was a good clue but we never thought it would mean that actual base becoming a robot. We have an extra image of that newly revealed toy which shows just how modular it is. We knew it was a partsformer who could disassemble from a base and become a robot but now we see that it is modular and the base can be reconnected in more than just one. That means that the possibilities will be nearly endless once we get more of these figures into the mix. Below you will see that new image coming from Hasbro as well as the other mages we got. Let us know if you are excited for this guy and be sure to watch the live stream from NYCC to see the new reveals. You can click here to get all the details on the scheduling.

I want Ironworks so bad. I hope he is the first of several of the Micromaster bases to come out.

Not sure I want my Transformers becoming Duplo sets.

The more I see, the more I like.

Fingers crossed we'll get other Micromaster bases like this (Hot House, Greasepit, Airwave...).

Way better than repaints of other figures!

Will the base parts also fit onto other transformers like the Brunte and company?

Yes and no? Depends on exactly what you mean. They have 5mm pegs and holes, so they can certainly be be used the same was as other weaponizers and armor up regular deluxe/voyager/leader figures. But the ramp connectors will only work with the newer style connectors found so far on Siege Omega Supreme and Astrotrain and Earthfall Optimus and Grapple (sort of).

For Grapple, people pointed out that he has 1/2 of a connector on his grapple/claw. It just dawned on me that you can use Grapple to "build" Ironworks :michaelbay:

I also think that Ironworks can lend his arm to other bots as well

I hope the top has a port for Grapple's claw to help replicate the G1 TOy's radar dish

I think is really possible, because of the 5 mm port in ;)

If they do the other basic original Micromaster bases, who should they do next>

Hothouse's Fire Station

Greasepit's Petrol Station

Airwave's Airport

Personally I would like to see Greasepit's Petrol Station

You could always purchase a Cyberverse Spark Armor Shockwave, take and repaint his solar panels to use as those parts. It'll be four instead of three but it'll work in a pinch.

*EDIT* No sooner do I click submit then go onto Facebook do I see Prize Inside! from Shapeways already designed them. That really was quick.

I'd want Greasepit's Petrol Station next as well as it's the only other one I had/still have. Then of course Hothouse's Fire Station and Airwave's Airport as I never had the originals and would greatly appreciate having updates to them. Especially with robot modes of their own.

Airwave, for 2 reasons. I have the original (needs some TLC) gifted by my grandmother, and his Autobot counterpart Overair is in the Micromaster 10-pack like Irontread is for Ironworks. I think he is next, actually.

Now that would get me to buy that leader OP for sure.

I think this guy is going to fit in really well with the Wreckers.

I'm curious to see if the sections will attach to other figures like SixGun and Brunt did for the Siege figures. A combination of those could result in some seriously badass combinations.

I dig it. I'd like to see the different ways it could interact with omega in iron's city, bot, and armor modes

The more I think about it, I appreciate how Weaponizers have been used as a *catch all* for a lot of the oddities in TF over the past year, and coming into its second year. First used as releases for some of the Titans smaller components, then for Powerdashers, now as re visualizations of Micromaster Stations, there is a lot of potential. (I see some calling them bases, which is a larger item such as Countdown, see paragraph 4 ;) )

The word "all" in catch all being the empirical term however. We will be getting *all* three Powerdashers through the Selects Line and Amazon. There is still at least one Titan component outstanding (Fasttrack), which many including myself assume we will get, but perhaps not.

It seems likely, but unfortunately Hasbro has also been known to leave things unfinished. We only got 8 of the 1513 Primes as standard releases with Pretender Shells for PotP.

Also, I think the idea of releasing Countdown along with Omega Supreme was pretty ingenious, kill 2 birds with one BIG ROCKET ;) . But in looking at other 89/90 Micromaster bases, one wonders how they could be re imagined in this modern era? Who could they be partnered with?

I suspect that, for 'simmetry' we might see a Micromaster with this year's very likely Decepticon Titan (who, by elimination MUST be Scorponok). Now who exactly I don't know.
