    I was hoping to see the deluxe Ironhide get the red G1 treatment. Hopefully it will happen.

    What picture are you referring to? It sounds to me like you might be describing a factory copy/test shot. Early samples are often disfigured to make them undesirable in an effort to prevent them from getting leaked out. Though this doesn't tend to prevent it. Many transformers prototypes have their faces slashed. Similarly many 25th GI*JOE's have an "H" branded into their arm which doesn't look as bad. I have a cancelled classic toy color Red Starr and it has the "H" on his arm.

    Since the only listing left is substandard pakaging, i would guess a few people were willing to pay it.

    I'm not at all against G1 names being used in other franchises...but painting it red doesn't make it G1 Ironhide. Pass for me at any price.

    Even in red that DOTM Ironhide voyager mold is a mess. I wish they would release recon Ironhide in red.
