    Something doesn't look right about Ironhide to me, if they are going for a Prime aeschetic. Not saying I don't like the bot, but it doesn't seem to fit in a 'one of these things is not like the other' kind of way, if the Prime universe is where he's meant to live. I'm going to through out a wild supposition and say he's not in the show, but something tells me (based on the general scuttlebutt around here) he will be.

    ^ They already said he's not in the show - at least not yet.

    I like it. It looks like a more "realistic Bayfilms" take on the unproduced and damned-shame-they-didn't-make-one Animated Season 4 Ironhide, minus the windshield faceguard.

    Funny, considering that the Prime aesthetic is pretty much Animated + Movie.
    Overall, I really like how these two look.

    The thing is:

    Why is the "repaint'' in the show.....but not Ironhide?

    That's G1 Ironhide after working out, getting a few greeblies pasted on, and stealing some cannons from the other versions of him.

    I mean, c'mon! He has a nose! Not only does a Prime character have a nose, you can see it even at this scale! :lol

    Ironhide was going to be in the show - but he would've been essentially the Bulkhead we have now. They realized they were really making Bulkhead, and changed it from Ironhide to Bulkhead.

    I'd hardly call Dreadwing a repaint, seeing as Skyquake was only in one episode and was just there to die, essentially. Did you expect them to throw away $$$ on a character model on a tightly-run show like this for a single episode? I admit, I wasn't expecting Skyquake's model to be reused like this, but there you go.

    Please, Ironhide, PLEASE be in the show! Even if just for one episode. Dreadwing, whoever he is, looks BA as well. Was he in any other continuities?

    Wheeljack is returning, Makeshift was only a silhouette and Tailget used Cliffjumpers model. Every other one off character is either returning or didn't have a proper character model. I wonder if Dreadwing is reusing Skyquakes model or Skyquake was preusing Dreadwings already designed model?

    As far as I know, he had toys in the Generation One and Movie lines, and appeared in some of the movie prequel comics, but I don't think he's ever really been featured in anything else.

    His only significant roles involved being some kind of combined form in G1 and a generic drone in the movie verse.

    As for Ironhide being in the show...why? The creators want to make characters as diverse as possible. If this is the toy Ironhide is getting then it's clear he's a big muscle type which Bulkhead already does. There's really no point to including him and they've said he won't be coming for a while. Given they're already half way through production of season 2 I think that means we won't be seeing him for quite a while.

    I LOVE that face on Ironhide. It completely captures the personality Ironhide is supposed to have.

    I don't know about the rest of u, and call me biased, but I like it and I will always hope and wish he will be on the show, even if it will be for just one episode.

    I like Dreadwing. I hope we get him in Skyquake colors eventually.

    I'm not digging Ironhide at all though. I can't stand that color scheme. Red would have been okay. Black would have been better, but not both.

    Because the CGI model for Skyquake already exists and it's a lot easier, faster, and cheaper to use the existing model again than it is to make a new one. That's why the Beast shows and Prime have such small casts compared to the hand-drawn shows. It's an unfortunate limitation of CGI-based shows.

    Still, I'm all-in on Cyberverse so I'll happily get both of these guys (and hope that Dreadwing gets a repaint as Skyquake).
