    It's probably because the feet are diecast. Had they been plastic, in sure they could've added another joint in there. Ah well, \M/

    I've never seen that done. Would be nice for Ironhide here and Prime since they both have toes.

    I was kinda expecting a $90 price point because it's sized between Bee and Prime, but the figure looks dense as hell, so I feel kinda okay with $100. Just as long as the QC isn't shoddy.

    Maybe Ironhide has a higher parts count then Prime and that’s why he is in that price range despite being smaller?

    price is based on parts count, paint apps, etc. this is why titan devastator was simplified and barren.

    Oh, just noticed that Ol' Barry is slated for March! I thought he was an April release.

    Back on topic: can't wait to get Ironhide! He looks awesome. Arm articulation will be hindered by all that kibble (half the vehicle mode ends up on his arms) but he's super accurate so all is forgiven.

    From the various pictures, it actually looks like the two front hood pieces actually don't peg into the front. This being the case, I can see them functioning as extra pectorial joints that will allow a greater range of motion for the arms than we think. Even in the movies, those pieces move together with the arms, so he might be far more expressive thana either Bee or Prime.

    You're right, I was actually thinking they might act as a sort of butterfly joint. That said though the panels that attach to his upper arms and forearms look like they might make posing his arms a bit difficult.

    Ironhide was one of my favorite's in the live action movie's. I didn't like that they killed him off and jazz. I would like to have movie Jazz, but that is a pipe wet dream.

    I never thought I'd say this, but I actually really appreciate the use of kibble on this figure. The GMC front and the faux bumper on the front of the chest being a couple of areas. Unlike MPM-4, they knew that these pieces would be physically impossible to achieve without kibble without compromising accuracy and they went for accuracy. Again, while it's commendable that they tried to use as little faux parts as possible on MPM-4, perhaps a little bit more kibble would have made for a better figure.

    they killed off the good characters so they could give us new shitty characters and sell us new shitty toys.

    To be fair Hound is a better character personality wise than Ironhide.

    i think hound is the best of the new characters but still, he's too over the top and 1 dimensional. a lazy caricature that's been done to death.

    That sums up the entire AOE/TLK autobots, knights cast and every single randos they tried to hit us with. Barricade and Megatron are the only good things left in these movies that they refuse to embrace.
