Very nice! I can't seem to get myself to like that chrome gun
Tomorrow??? Argh everything is coming out too fast
Art is nice though.
I like the chrome gun because it reminds me of the one on his weapons platform on the G1 toy. It's like when he got upgraded he insisted that Wheeljack keep the old missile launcher and adapt it for mounting on his arm.
Old guys like Ironhide get sentimental about their old weaponry.
Was this before or after he told Wheeljack to give him an actual head?
I got the custom heads for Ironhide and Ratchet for my Encores, btw. They're pretty damn sweet.
I wouldnt buy Henkei for the chrome, i would buy them for the box art. ^^
Thanks for the link!
Soon....so very very soon.
yes i cant wait!
Looks great. Another Henkei win over Universe.
this Henkei will be mine, one day... But not any day soon, cus I'm broke as hell.
Can't wait to go pick this up in 7 hours.
Chrome guns were common place in G1 though. Better a chrome gun than random chrome on the actual toy I suppose.
Wouldn't that have been a funny nod to G1 if they had somehow had the seats transform into his head? I'd chuckle.
I hope that these make the next shipment that the store I frequent is getting.
They'll be getting a bunch of figures in probably next month, as they've been waiting on more stock before getting them all shipped. He'll be getting everyone from Sunstreaker/Prowl onward in this shipment, so hopefully Ironhide/Galvy make it.
Especially since there's no Henkeis in the previous waves I'm interested in (except maybe Sunstreaker - have to see him in person first).
Yeah, I'm REALLY digging that box art.
Oh wait, what? Oh. Zzzz...
Don't see the appeal of this figure over the Hasbro version.
I think the appeal, Kickback, is the windows and the stripe.
Myself, I'm convinced the Henkei deco is far superior. Mind you, I know not everyone's going to agree with me.
I'll admit that the two figures are pretty close - but Henkei Ironhide appears to have a better deco and darker shade of red.
Dude, Ironhide got the SHAFT back in the 80s. He didn't even get an Action Master do-over. I would have been ok with the Universe version if not for the whole "holding my breath, underwater looking for Seaspray" face paint app. I'll kick in an extra ten to get the best version of the old boy.
The front grill is not chromed on Henkei Ironhide...
