    Still working on a birthday list. I told my parents Human Alliance Leadfoot when it comes out, I was going to tell them the Lego Star Wars Death Star, but Them+buying it= Never. Then I thought about Leader class Ironhide, since it was not avalible in Canada yet.

    I didn't intend to get Leader Class Ironhide in the first place, since there is no Decepticon Leader class at all.
    I didn't even think that Sentinel Prime counted as a Leader class villain.

    Con: I don't need a Leader Class Ironhide because he is way too large to compare to Optimus, I already have a voyager Ironhide, just the right size and I'm protesting Bumblebee and Ironhide until we see one more Leader class being Megatron.

    Pro: Ironhide does look Awesome,
    plus it would be a memorial to him since he dies in the movie,
    Also I did see the reviews for him.

    Should I add him to my birthday list? Is he worth it?

    Agreed, and his chest cannon is probably the best feature/gimmick we've had in a movie-verse figure ever.

    Pretty much any Leader class figure will turn out to be better than expectations, from my experience. If you want the figure, and it's not holding you back from getting something that you want more, then go for it.

    I just need to put something else on the list incase Human Alliance Leadfoot does not come out before July 21. Because if it doesn't and there is nothing else, that means more Socks and Underwear, and I've got tons. I have so much of that I sometime don't wear all of it are I can't fit anymore in my drawer.

    Convince your parents to get some japanese toys like g1 reissues. Encores are cheap sometimes and they are good stuff. Anything japanese. I can convince my parents to get those so you could too. If u want leader class Ironhide, than that's fine he is cool. Till all are one my fellow adolescent.

    My parents are hard to convince. One word to describe them, CHEAP. sometimes when I want to buy an expensive transformer, I lie about the price so I can buy it or I buy it behind their back.

    Well you could either get ironhide now or you could wait two weeks or so, and add up all the money you saved on not getting him or the HA. I know they must be cheap but I am a child like you so I go through the same thing as you all the time. If u no that's not gonna work than that is fine for me.

    I wish I could get a bunch of toys on my birthdays like I did when I was a kid.

    Hell, only reason I'm getting much now is because it's my 21st, and even then I ain't getting toys.

    You can get him for $30 so that's not bad for a Leader. :)  See links in my sig!

    Np. I think your bigger problem will be finding him. But hopefully he'll be showing up more soon.

    The coupons expire 7/16 and the $39.99 price expires 7/30. Good luck!

    Ok, here's another problem. I told my mom about the coupon, but I couldn't print it because of installments that My mom was afraid of. So she asked me to just google it and see if there was one on images. There was one, but I don't know if it will work. Because It almost looks like it would be counterfitting.

    It should work ok; they accept printed and photocopies, as long as the Target scanner can read the barcode.

    Try this one (posted by Waverider in the Coupons etc thread):
