I have always wondered why Ironhide's stripes were the way they were. I mean, they just looked odd to me. Bellow I attached a picture in case you guys my age forgot and you newbies have no idea. Anyway, I was on Flickr today at lunch and saw a picture that made my jaw drop. The Stripe on my beloved toy was a special edition of the Nissan Cherry Vanette. Look VERY close at the stripe on both of them. You will notice that it is boxed in with scalloping of the center two stripes and leading into the sliding door rail which Takara/Hasbro made black. Sadly the silver Van is in dire shape (notice the complete lack of sill behind the drivers door) but I will try to locate more of this edition. I am trying to find a brochure also. I hope you guys enjoy!
