    i would say sentinel due to the simple Ironhide legs, the issues with the hood, and Leader Sentinel being better than the voyager one. If i could only have gotten one, Sentinel would have won.,

    Get both. I have both.
    Each has their flaws. Sentinel is hard to stand up, ironhide has loose shoulders (mine anyway).

    That's eady Sentinel Prime.
    1. Sentinel head can swirl left and right. Ironhide head is glued - no articulation.
    2. Sentinel hands articulation at the wrist and open/close palm. Where as Ironhide can't.
    3. entire door panels are folded behind Ironhide arms.
    4. Ironhide Left arm canon panel is way too loose.
    5. Ironhide legs are way too bend (monkey like stand).

    If you like sound gimmic Ironhide has more, but for me I would rather have articulations than gimmics.
    Simply the Alt mode of Sentinel Pime is solid vs with Ironhide. BTW, I returned Ironhide after taking him out the the box. Big disappointment for me!

    personally, i like both equally well in bot mode, to me though, i like ironhides alt mode better, sentinel is good but the paneling is more finicky to get lined up

    Ironhide. On a technical level, in terms of articulation, etc., Sentinel might be a better figure, but I have much more fun playing with Ironhide. Plus, I like the character a lot more, and he just looks awesome in both modes (Sentinel just has a "cheap" look to him in robot mode that I can't explain).

    Sentinel is good (and if you got two, I'd recommend those two), but if you're only going for one I've got to recommend ironhide.

    I would get whichever character you like better. They both sounded cool to me, but I was way more excited to get Ironhide because he's my favorite Autobot. I'm still debating Sentinel because I didn't really care for the character in the movie, but his toy looks cool.

    I do not have Ironhide, but Sentinel is a glorious toy and from what I've heard IH is very hit-or-miss for some people. I'd go with Sentinel, then buy Ironhide when he goes on sale.

    This sums it up pretty well for me. Sentinel's alt mode transformation takes the fun out of the toy for me. He still looks great in bot mode, though.

    Ironhide's transformation is pretty fun, his alt mode is awesome and he's all around a much better toy for me.

    For me, Leader Ironhide is the best.

    Leader Sentinel Prime has a hard time standing up on his own; he just falls over no matter what I do to get him to stand up straight.

    Sentinel for me, and it's not even close.

    Ironhide just does nothing for me, too simplistic and gimmicky, his transformation isn't fun or involved at all, and he's severely limited for articulation.
