    While it is true that DX9 has a good Ironhide figure, I might steer you in the direction of ShapeShifters Heavy Metal (and Sky Snake):


    These are legends size WFC/FoC style figures of Ironhide (and Starscream).

    If you want a G1esque figure, Guartinel is great... but if you want something that is going to go with your IF figures more, I find that the WFC/FoC aesthetic goes much better with the styling of the IDW Armored Tactical Staff.

    Is Shapeshifters going to release any other WFC/FOC legends scale stuff?

    Sadly it seems unlikely. Which is too bad; their Ironhide is a lot of fun. Well articulated with a nice alt-mode. I have to echo IronMagnus and Scourgatron's recommendations; DX9's and Shapeshift Inc Ironhide are good figures.

    Yeah, that is always disappointing when a line ends too soon or never releases a follow-up. That is what has me excited about these Hot Soldier figures. They seem to have serious plans for their line, at least 12 figures.

    The good thing is that IDW used a lot of the FoC and WfC designs for characters non-earth modes. Shapeshift Ironhide pairs really well with the Iron Factory figures.

    Only 12? Surely they e got more planned? Who are the 12? I only know up to 09 (Bee) but know Sideswipe and re Alert are coming (10 &11?)

    Optimus is 02, Soundwave 03, Laserbeak is 04, Soundblaster 05, Ratbat is 06, Ironhide 07, Ratchet 08, Sideswipe 11 and Red Alert is 12 so only 01 and 10 are left to be revealed. I really hope there are more characters coming.

    Mech Planet released a teaser for a Hearts of Steel Bumblebee. I don't remember if he was supposed to be part of the Hot Soldiers line or not.

    So I got Ironhide today and love it. There were two small purple translucent blocks (rectangular not cubed) in a small baggie. I suppose these are energon blocks. Anyone else get these with their IH?

    This guy dropped into my Pile of Loot at BBTS this morning. I'm really curious to get my hands on him, but I have several DX9 preorders that are on the cusp of being released so I'm going to hold off on shipping until they arrive and I can have a box full of tiny fun robots.

    The top of his head is taller than IF blitzwing. That is how tall he is. They roughly the same size.

    Nice! Hopefully TFSource gets their stock soon then. Hopefully TCP is wrong and the last Dinobots ship before October 27th.

    Mine has a light bar that's not painted so I guess I have a spare for Ratchet.

    Tried to take a couple of pics. Sorry for poor quality. He's too tall for dx9 but perfect with mechfans and hasbo imo.
