    Just spotted this on BBTS:

    PP05P Patrol Specialist (LE 500) - Third Party Transforming Toys & Accessories iGear

    Limited to 500 pieces
    New Head
    Only comes with a laser pistol
    And "different paint scheme"

    Basically it's Ironhide with a new head and I have no idea who he's supposed to homage, if anyone.

    Edit: After checking TFU.info, I'm guessing Micromaster Tote. Same alt mode. Head is fairly reminiscent. And he was part of Off-Road Patrol Team

    That's an uber specialist character to be selling. I guess it's a good time for those who didn't get Ironhide and want him....there will be plenty of unused heads floating around to make him Ironhide again.

    Maybe it's Tote? -shrug-

    Zero interest so far. Why not a black Diaclone version instead?

    I'd be in if it was just Ironhide, I don't want all that extra junk he comes with normally- but I'm not risking not finding a proper head.

    Patrol Specialist is from Tote of the Offroad Patrol?

    So, it's just with a different head... I wonder if it comes with the other accessories?

    NVM: Limited to only 500 pieces worldwide! This figure comes only with the small gun pictured and featues a new head and different paint scheme.

    It's not the first Micromaster third party Transformer homage by iGear... He just costs more and comes with less dick jokes.

    Also, Warcry and Flameblast are Micromaster homages by FansProject! Third party Transformers companies seem to love repainting their toys into Micromaster as much as Hasbro!

    Wow, they're really starting to reach. What's next, the black Diaclone version?

    I'd have jumped on a Black Diaclone version. Black Diakron Ironhide was my second "Transformer", after blue Diakron Trailbreaker.

    I want the clowns who kept screeching that the "accessories" they dumped in with Ironhide and Ratchet didn't raise the price of those figures to see this. Here it is, fools, a super limited run without any of that useless crap that "somehow" costs $20 less even with 6 months of inflation behind it.

    Only $10 less from the original price, iirc.

    Ten bucks, meh. Who cares? I'll take the extra stuff for ten bucks. :)

    I really like Ironhide and Ratchet so I preordered this for now but I may change my mind. I love obscure character homages but this is really grasping at straws...

    Who on earth would purchase a toned down paint-wise figure, obscure beyond obscurity headsculpt on it, with just one gun instead of two runners of accessories, for that price?

    Mainly because people will buy it. Sad but true.

    I placed a Pre Order just incase. I love the other two and the new paint scheme could be awesome, who knows? I have plenty of weapons from my other two to add to this one if needed.

    I've been hesitant to throw down the $120 that Ironhide and Ratchet seem to go for without having ever seen them in person. I can probably stomach $99 to try out this simpler version, and I do have a soft spot for the obscure Micromaster homages.
