    I've been thinking about getting a voyager class Ironhide and there's like 12129 of them out there. Which one is the best? I'm leaning Recon right now but the new HFTD looks pretty good in blue.

    Thoughts?

    I'm a fan of the Recon Ironhide...lots of weapons and a great remolded head sculpt. I don't mind the lightning paint scheme either.

    The upcoming blue redeco of Recon Ironhide is the best imo. Otherwise, it's the deluxe version for me!

    I like the look of the deluxe, but he's way, way too small.

    I vote for Recon Ironhide.

    I love the blue Offroad Ironhide from the first movie because of the color. But I love the remolding of Recon Ironhide but hate that paint. This new one that maybe coming out is the best of both worlds.

    Has to be Recon Ironhide IMO, and linked some non-scientific supporting polling here.

    i would say first movie premium just for the accuracy, if you don't want accuracy, go for the blue recon

    Recon. The lightning stripes suck, but they don't really stand out at all in bot mode.

    The deluxe is my favorite by far. Not nearly as many fiddlybits and panels and I don't feel compelled to chuck it across the floor because of the annoying transformation.

    Get movie 1 first version Ironhide or the premium one. Find a used gray Ironhide [complete] with all parts from ROTF.

    Swap the head, the fists and the weapons between them, and you've got yourself the most accurate hybrid.

    No need for deluxe versions, or Jungle Strike Ironhides or whatever.

    Yah, but then you don't get all of the cool little extra accessories :)

    And also to add, I dislike the door kibble from the original mold.

    This.

    I actually prefer the first one to the premium (they started making up details on premium like the big red autobot logo on his hood). Except for the head, they really nailed Ironhide the first time out. Every other version has been less accurate.

    I did get the nest one and trade out heads.

    On the other hand, Recon Ironhide may have the best play value of them all- but it certainly isn't the most screen accurate.

    Recon, IMO. If you need movie accuracy, I imagine you could repaint it.

    I was actually thinking about this on my walk to work. Will this have any ill effect to the plastic after the paint is removed?

    I enjoy Recon ironhide the most, though the Deluxe is pretty cool too.

    Get Rambohide. I personally thought I was going to hate it, but turns out I love it. Loads of guns and knives, but the cannons are somewhat accurate too.

    The head swap's a good idea, but I don't know if I want to spend that much on a single figure (well I guess two figures). Especially since the first movie ironhide is pretty rare nowadays.

    I think I may go with Recon, but perhaps wait until after the blue one is out just to compare.
