    The cannon's not that great compared to other MechTechs. Other ones have bits that pop out or flip round, this one just has a little bit that spins. Your mileage may vary though, but I personally like the transforming weapons angle.

    The other ironhide had the same chest locking problem, unless you knew the correct way to tab it in. It's awkward but it holds, check out Peaugh's review of it.

    May give his gatling gun to the old IH so he'll have two, and give this dude some pistols or a rifle.

    Does anyone have any good ideas for Ironhides Back mounted weapons? I considered using laserbeaks but some of the Basic HAs weapons could do...

    HASBROOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    LOL!
    Good review! I have the regular, black version, I enjoy this fig and will most likely get this version as well. I have been waiting for a red IH since movie I! Too bad it's not all red, I'm not too crazy about the tri-color thing, looks like a flag.

    About weapons, I took a pair of cannons from TFTM (Offroad) Ironhide, cut off the missile plugs, repainted them, and gave them to my black one, gave this fig a MAJOR facelift!

    That paint job is so retro - I love it. He will be mine. I don't care about arm poseability so much. I'm a grown up. I don't play with them that much ;)

    I think I need to get this simply on the principle of wanting red movie ironhide for so long.

    As I recall, the black voyager Ironhide had an assembly issue where the front wheels were installed on the wrong sides. Swapping the front wheels (and since I don't have Ironhide I don't know how many pieces or specifically which pieces need to be swapped) allows the wheels to fold in better, and also allows the chest to lock together much better.

    Does anyone know if this is the case with Cannon Force Ironhide as well?

    As for the colors, I quite like the mix of red, black, and tangerine. The solid red head somehow works for me, though the solid red feet still look bad. Maybe Reprolabels will do a set that adds black/tangerine on the upper feet?
