    w00t!

    I got my Movie Ironhide --> Classics Trailbreaker coversion labels. I didn't know I was going to get stickers for both a blue visor and a red visor. Now I'm stuck. Should I use the red eyes for toy accuracy or the blue ones for show accuracy?

    :banghead:

    lol........ always for show accuracy.

    there is no such thing as "toy accuracy" because the toy is suppose to copy show, more like toy "inaccuracy" :D

    Not true... the models for the show were designed AFTER the toy. So it's in fact the show that's a lousy imitation of the toy.

    I'd look up pics of him in his various incarnations to see. Do whatever IDW did (odds are they did blue though), or do what you think will look best.

    EDIT: It looks like he's been consistently depicted with red optics in comic media - see the Universe comic, IDW or Dreamwave.

    Heck, as much as I hate transforming him, I might just leave him in truck mode and skip the eyes altogether.

    He definitely looks a lot better now. Not so dull. I must say, however, that I definitely do NOT miss putting my own stickers on all my Transformers. My caffeine-intoxicated, shaky hands make the job an exercise in frustration.

    true true, but the show defines the toy...

    its like if you met an actress on the street, do you want to see her in makeup or without?

    The toys came first so they're what the cartoons were modeled after. Therefore any changes in design are an inaccuracy of the cartoon

    The G1 cartoon is definitive. Reality is often inaccurate.

    Hmm, she can start off with makeup but I certainly wouldn't give her enough time to put it on the next morning before kicking her out so...both I guess.
