    It's been over a month since I got him and I see very little point in doing this, but I'm gonna anyway. When I got him out of the box I looked for the instructions, but nothing. I checked everywhere and... Nothing. Now, it didn't bother me too much since I transformed him perfectly fine the first time.

    So I'm just curious as to why he didn't come with any. Has anyone else had this 'problem'?

    Probably cuz Hasbro hates ya!

    J/k.

    Probably factory error, or it slipped out, or what nots.

    Because he is easier to transform than a Cyberjet?

    Apparently quality control is hard.

    My commemorative issue re-issue Thundercracker didn't come with any nor did it come with the sticker sheet. I didn't find out that it was supposed to have them until I got Skywarp and saw all the parts inside. Oh well what can you do, I thought it was normal since the transformation instructions are on the outside of the box; and I was not really collecting at the time so I was ignorant about the stickers. I guess it just happens sometimes.

    I happens sometimes. Just an error. I remember my Titanium Rodimus came with the instructions for the Titanium RID Optimus. Thankfully a pal of mine also had the Titanium Rodimus and scanned his instructions so I could print them out for myself.
    Maybe someone here with the Ironhide can do the same for you. Or does Hasbro have them to print on their site?

    Sometimes the instructions can fall out of the box during shipping.

    Well, my Leader Ironhide came with part of his knee missing. (part of the ratchet joint inside)

    I'm still waiting for TRU here to actually GET Ironhide so I can try to exchange him (it's a minor enough issue that I'd rather have the toy than not while I wait).

    I may just use a paperclip instead and fix him myself. I'm starting to wonder if I'll even be able to exchange him by the time the toy shows up here (I got mine of TRU.com well over a month ago now).

    My Animated Blitzwing came with no instructions. But it was easy enough to find a scan of the missing instructions on the Internet, so all was well and good. Try doing the same, OP, or watch a video review to find out how the transformation's done.

    Ain't that the truth. You don't know where it's been! :p

    Master Shake: I don't know. Probably maybe something you did to anger god. He's angry with you, all right. I remember him telling me that at the last supper.

    Kidding :)  Like others have said: left out, fell out or a return.
