    He's been in stores for some time now.

    And unfortunately I think it'll be the only red(ish) Ironhide the movie line sees at this point.

    Seriously, WTF is up on that.

    I satisfied my red movie Ironhide craving with this oversized KO of the Legends figure:

    Is that the KO you can get in Poundland? Nearly picked one up myself along with the brown Starscream.

    Hasbro better have the voyager coming out in red soon. Kinda surprised they didn't use red for the recon mold.

    I'm amazed they didn't do it with the first round of movie figures, especially since all the main cast received G1 treatments in deco.

    At this point, I just don't think it's going to happen.

    Wish someone would ask them why in those Q&As. Keep submitting the question myself for consideration on TF forums but it never gets asked.

    I know Ironhide's traditionally red, and I dearly love the Classics 2.0 version, but I really think that the movie design looks far better in black than any other color. Blue's my favorite color in general, but I completely balked at that "Offroad" repaint back in '07/'08. I only bought the RotF grey Voyager specifically for the head & guns to switch out on my '07 Voyager, and the one thing I dislike about the new Recon Ironhide is that his head's molded in that ugly brownish color his weapons are done in.

    So to me, it's like certain designs look best in certain colors. I think Classics Ironhide would look hideous in black or blue, as would the upcoming Animated Ratchet repaint version.

    Aside from the Legends and RPMs that is. They'll have to repaint the Recon retool eventually, right?


    Offroad Ironhide was blue because First Strike Prime was red. Same reason why Armada Tidal Wave wasn't purple like the show.

    Yup, that be he. Also available in blue and yellow. Joint's a bit loose where the front of the truck hinges at the waist but I'm going to swap out the screws to make it tighter. Everything else is snug on mine. Also gonna paint him up a bit to make him slightly less red: windows, tires, cannons, chestplate, etc.

    With real Ironhide Legends:
