    The recent trend seems to be released new TF toys that look amazingly like G1 characters. Well, isn't it amazing we haven't gotten a proper Ironhide figure out of this yet? Or better yet, an Alternator Ironhide?

    The ideal Ironhide for me would be a GMC Savana. But more likely would be a Hummer H3 or something.

    I'm tired of looking at my headless Ironhide. We even got an Arcee out of the recent lines, but still no (proper) Ironhide.

    While I do agree with you... there is a pretty good one out of the 05 Botcon set, but most people aren't interested in paying the prices an exclusive demands. Well, considering that we're seeing him in the movie... perhaps in the following series we'll get a nice G1ish Ironhide. Who knows though? You can never really tell what the heck Hasbro is going to do.

    I am getting a Happywell Hummer and Landcruiser and either one is a good candidate to be alt Ironhide. It's too bad I can't custom paint or I'll make them red. Right now if you can do a head swap on the alt Prime you can have yourself a Ironhide.

    Go get Alternator Skids.

    Dip him in red paint.

    Presto! Ironhide.

    I'd love to see Ironhide given some respect in Classics or Alts. The fact that he's in the movie is cool, but that just ain't the Ironhide I'm lookin' fer.

    IMO Skids make a poor Ironhide repaint. I always imagine Ironhide as a big American truck or SUV and Scion just don't qualify (yes I am aware G1 Ironhide is a van).

    Yeah. It's bad enough that G1 Ironhide was a minivan, but I just can't see demoting him into a compact hatchback. I've seen those xbs in person, next to other cars. They're kind of tall, but otherwise not very big.

    but if he was a van, why is it a bad choice for him to be a small suv/van?

    a lot of the minivans aren't that big either though.

    I agree. Its been to long sence we've had a proper Ironhide. If not a new mold at least a repaint/minor re-tool of Alt. Skids.

    A scion is not a van. It's a boxy-looking sedan.

    Hopefully we'll get more classics and get a new Ironhide along with a new Ratchet.

    Agreed on Ironhide, I've wanted a real one for years... And dont sell the Botcon figure on me, the colors were plain, the head didn't look right, and not one trace of yellow... Besides those facts, it's Ironhide, he deserves better than a retooled Energon figure. He deserves the treatment Rodimus Prime just got, a big brusier figure that uses all of it's bulk, no separate base piece.

    The xb is neither an SUV or a van. It's a small hatchback car, with a high roof. You might as well turn him into a Pinto.
