Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted new images and listed a pre-order for the FWI-02 weapons upgrade for Transformers DOTM Leader Class Ironhide. These new images reveal that the cannons, previously only seen as hand held weapons, can be attached to Ironhide's forearms for a more movie accurate appearance. The set will also feature a pair of battle blades. The set is listed for $19.90 and scheduled to release in February 2012. Images mirrored below.

Those cannons are awesome! And we get a pair of blades. I didn't order the Leader SS upgrades, but I think these are a must!

Well, to be honest, both of our posts are matters of opinion. So, with that in mind...

He's out of scale.
He's incredibly simplistic in many ways.
He's suffering from kibbleitis.
He's suffering from an ugly color scheme.

For the price they're asking, he just doesn't cut it for me. The Voyager might be undersized, but it looks fantastic, the transformation is rather complex and for the price? Heh. SOLD.

I like the idea & designs but i'm not willing to spend $30+ for these weapons. I'd rather pay 3rd party toy prices for whole figures & not accessories.

I find it kinda sad that the same 3rd party company who created the FW1-01 Leader sized HFTD Starscream accessories,didn't bother creating a newer seeker style G-1 head sculpt.

You forgot to mention that he can't straighten his legs and the knees have only two positions. Also, his wheels (which shouldn't be visible in bot mode) severely limit his shoulders which are set too far back. Oh yeah, limited head movement AFTER you break the seal with a hard twist and a sickening screech.

They look a little big on the leader class figure. The actual guns in the movie weren't too much bigger than the guys arms. Maybe it's just me, I dunno. Either way, I wouldn't get the leader class figure anyway, I'm fine with his recon/jungle attack figure if I want one with lots of weapons.

Don't have Leader IH, but I foresee these cannons and swords becoming part of Ultimate Optimus Prime

The options are nice. The FWI-01 upgrade could attach to the vehicle mode. Does the FWI-02 attach to the truck mode creating a "stealth force" mode? If so i'm sold.

the coolest feature about those swords is that there's what looks to be little handles on the backs of each. I forsee pictures of him duel weilding these blades. :D

Too disenchanted with the movie verse to get into this. Would love to give the whole entire figure and these add-ons a paint overhaul.

He could use a pants upgrade a lot more than these. The blue jeans on this fig just don't cut it...

Those look awesome! If I ever recover financially from Christmas, I'll get them. I hope the final paint apps are good, w/ silver and gold where appropriate. Those blades are very fitting too. I like the extra mech bits on the arm attachments, they look great.

An FWIW, a simple black paint marker on his legs go a loooong way to fixing him.

i quite like leader ironhide.. and these add ons are awesome.. however, the only thing that would make these better is if they just made all new forearms.
