    *Not sure if this should go with the TFU Ironhide thread, but mods feel free to merge this if necessary.

    Just released here today in most specialty stores in Singapore (along with Galvatron). So i'll share some pics:

    In packaging:

    Comic cover (pretty badly folded up so i didn't take the insides but its mostly of Ironhide and Galvatron fighting anyway):

    robot mode:

    Great pictures, ZeroXII! Ironhide looks really good. You didn't get Galvatron? Or you didn't manage to take pictures of him before your camera battery ran out?

    Eagerly anticipating more images of them. And it's time to hunt for mine as well.

    not a big fan of the "blank" plate.

    nor am i a fan of the gray, i liked the pictures of it being black! but that light gray, just doesn't do the figure justice. i would of preferred it being red almost lol like the hasbro version, anything but THAT gray lol! but, i do miss smurf ironhide :lol

    Its so light, i almost thought it was white plastic. But yeah, i do wish the face was silver instead of white.

    Eh, still beats allspark blue..

    ...so they chrome the tail lights but not something that might make sense like... I don't know, maybe the bumper? Henkei is so weird. Many of the toys could be genuinely enhanced by careful application of chrome, and yet TakaraTomy seems to want to just throw it around entirely at random.

    I like the stripe & chromed weapon, but not to big a fan of the blank license plate & gray face, maybe something to pick up at Botcon if I see it for a good price.

    They still didn't do anything with the wheels! Black looks horrible.

    Colors are nicer than Hasbro's, but marginally. The changes are easily done at home on a Hasbro one really, for a cheaper total than this guy. Plus, customizing is fun!

    Still, for the collector with a thick wallet and no patience for painting, I guess this is a good option.
