    ok, i recently aquired ironhide and i am blown away by this toy, i never had the ratchet and i think it is safe to say we finally got our ironhide!

    g1 ironhide has no head, botcon 2005 ironhide is a decent figure i have heard, even though i love the toy, a lot of fans hate universe 2.0 ironhide, and the hate is justified, it really is a chore to fiddle with and transform

    now then there is movie ironhide, the voyager is cool, just too fiddly and i have no comment on the deluxe

    anyone feel how i do?

    Agreed! Animated Ironhide for the win. Curious, does the Beast Wars elephant count?

    you two mind telling us why, i know i like the mold, but it is quite a chore to transform, it not that fun to fiddle with, but it looks nice standing with the other classics

    but that is my personal opinion

    He's definitely my favourite Ironhide toy to date after G1 (and I admit G1 IH has more of a nostalgic charm than anything else). Sorry Universe Ironhide, but the paneltastic alt mode and "downward" expression doesn't do it for me.

    Well, this is what we've gotten so far: Search Results - Transformers Resources [if that link expires, it's simply a search in our Resources for the Ironhide entries :wink: ]

    I don't think it's a huge stretch to agree with the inquiry. I do have to side with Omnius with the G1 toy holding a different place for me for its nostalgic value, seat face and all.

    If you're interested in my thoughts of Energon Ironhide, just venture here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/creative-general-discussion/314189-i-just.html

    "The best Ironhide" isn't really saying much. I mean... look at the competition.

    Henkei is much better than the Santa Clause fatty we got as an animated figure.

    I vote for Animated Ironhide as well! I have Cybertron mode Ratchet and didnt think much of it but when I got Ironhide I got to like this mold much better! To me this toy has the best mix of the G1 look with modern engineering. Its definitely my favorite "out of the box" Ironhide.

    Now MegaMoonMan's custom G1 Ironhide may be the best G1 Ironhide I've seen, and I cant wait to get a set of heads so I can try this myself!

    Yup.

    Why not? The thread topic is simply "is this the best Ironhide toy?" Universe = unspecified.

    Yeah, I'd have to agree with this. I'd love to see that project totally completed with a tutorial. :wink: :wink:

    Best Ironhides for me:

    TFTM premium Ironhide (SO SHINY O.O)
    Recon Ironhide (Holds together better in robot mode than previous releases, and the weapon possibilities are endless.)
    TFA Ironhide (You can get some great poses out of this guy.)

    Animated Ironhide is the best! Pose ability, color, and mold are all accurate to the g1 character and he looks like the tough mother trucker that he is. You don't have to worry about this one not having a head or a difficult transformation.
