    It's an awesome toy overall, head takes a bit of getting used too but it's really grown on me now. He's really in Alternators country, the detail may fall a bit short but he's pretty damn close to being Alt Ironhide if you ask me. My best description of him would be they made this toy like an Alternator but with a more mainline TF construction like we've seen in Cybertron or Energon.

    All I can say is from this toy and from what I've seen so far I think the movie toys are going to end up being pretty spiffy :rock

    This toy really looks great. I want to get two of these, so I have an extra to repaint red and put a REAL Ironhide head on :p

    Much as I love G1 Ironhide, and as much as I love this toy... think about it. Imagine what that would look like in your head.

    It's a VERY commendable thought - Ironhide would make an AWESOME alternator of that truck... but that body, I really don't think the G1 head would fit. Would have to "un-detail" it. Make a lot of the plastic pieces a lot flatter, etc.

    However, I WOULD like to see what people do with this idea.

    Only because you asked ;) 

    As you can see he's pretty much Alt size although just a tad smaller, in bot mode he stand almost about Alt Prime in hight, however not nearly as much bulk.

    I donno I think the scale is fine when you have him in hand, sure he could be a tad bigger, but I honestly dont think that would add to this toys awesomeness any.

    that's actually pretty small for what kind of truck it is.. looks nice, but if you're talking about him being alt-scale he'd be a lot larger.

    As you can see, its almost twice as tall as a mustang:

    I still stand by my argument that even if they did make him bigger it wouldn't make much of any real difference. Why he has to be Alternator size I don't know, he's perfect the way he is *shrug*

    Added some bot comparison pic's with Alt's.

    I never said he did. It was just that you were saying he was practically an alt, and what the others were saying.

    Nice gallery d00d. Ironhide's amazing; easily the best movie Voyager out of the 4 I have (him, Blackout, Starscream & Ratchet).
