    i just bought the ironhide and swipe, and i don't even like those mold that much, but the scan effect is done so well i just have to get them if only to keep them for display. i'd probably buy literally a piece of turd if they paint it half in solid shit brown and half in transparent i might even consider getting an armada sideswipe if it's done in the same style.

    I saw them for the first time last week and managed to pass b/c they were the old molds, but they have been flying off the shelves in my area, so peeps are definitely buying them up.

    I don't have DLX Ironhide, and he looks the best out of the bunch they did. Might pick him up.

    hmmm,yeah the tran-scaning effect is rather nice,wouldnt mind to see a 2pack with a repaint of energon towline in black as the g1 ironhide and put it with the trans-scaning ironhine to give it that sort of effect they gave with that g1/movie bumblebee vs cybertron/movie screamer four pack... but yeah... that was kinda off-topic.

    I got these. They're really, really nice. If they were convention pieces, I could see them being $50 a pop. I'm glad they're $11 at TRU. :)

    Yeah they look neat. I'll be picking up Sideswipe - that's my favourite toy and the clear parts seem to compliment the figure. Ironhide IMO doesn't look $30 good (Australian price). Legends 4 pack is a must buy.

    If these do well...i guess they'll make more until they don't do so well.

    Scan series Wheelie anyone?


    That's $30 + USD

    I bawk everytime i see the price of TFs in Australia.

    I just got these guys yesterday with the TRU BOGO sale.I really,really like the look of Sideswipe.There's just something with how the silver and the clear parts really blend well.Ironhide isn't too shabby looking either.

    I'm assuming there are going to be more of these done.Anyone know which ones?

    Last week I got Ironhide due to lack of money I had to pass on Sideswipe but I plan on going back to get him next.But as for the figures I think they are pretty sweet looking,but if I can't find Sidey on this trip I think I will see if one of the employees will hold him for me when there truck comes in this week.

    And I quite agree with ABobby,when are we gonna get more like Ratchet,Bee and Prime.Also wouldn't mind some deceps too like brawl and blackout and more.

    I got them both at my TRU friday. I like Sideswipe better honestly, just because the clear and solid bits get pretty balanced up in robot mode, where IH looks like he's wearing clear pants lol. But still, I may have to get Bumblebee and Ratchet when they hit, even though I DESPISE the ROTF ratched mold after what we got this time around.

    Thanks but those are the UPCs, not the 6 digit SKN. It still might work, thanks.

    Ironhide is great. I really, REALLY wish that the Sideswipe had been the sidearm model. I'm really disappointed with it that it isn't. I passed on him, sadly.

    I bought the 4-pack legends instead. I love clear figures but these didn't do enough for me, not enough clear parts. Ironhide looks better than Sideswipe though.
