    Ahh Diaclone colors. I think i'll pass though as I'm already getting ironhide and Ratchet encores and that mold is not worth buying a third. (imo)

    That's cool they are doing one of the hard to find colors for him. Well hard to find in good condition and not costing a testicle

    Never knew those were his original diaclone colors. Kinda 07 movieish. I'll pass though. Hate that mold. I eagerly await a classics 2.0/universe Ironhide.

    Hard choice. I missed out on the ehobby astrotrain. Now it's impossible that I will be able to get him. Maybe I might pick this diaclone verison of him just be to safe.

    For years I had this black version of Ironhide in my collection & I was wondering where the hell it came from. The rear tread snapped off & I eventually threw it out. Just a few years ago I found out it was the original Diaclone version. It was a piece of crap & I hate that mold but I wouldn't mind having it back just because. I never ordered an Ehobby exclusive but I might just go for this one.

    How much is it? How do I order?

    It's nice that his guy is being released in his Diaclone colours, but that mold really sucks from the waist up.

    What is E Hobby anyway - are they part of Takaratomy?

    Do they have their own line of toys?

    Woah - Nemesis Ironhide ;) 

    Although I have the G1 originals of ironhide and ratchet, I may have to get this for my collection. I would great next to the battered old 80s versions.

    I seem to have a genetic brain disfigurement that causes me to hate the stuff that's generally popular with the public at large(as I'm sure people have noticed by now...) and a strong appreciation for the universally despised.

    I really like the G1 van mold. Moreso than a lot of modern toys. Show-accuracy is not that important to me(considering these toys predated the show by years).

    I plan to get the 2 encores as they're cheap, and will likely get this too. That's how much I like this toy. The big question being, will Delta Star do a minor redesign to his upgrade head sticker for this guy?

    This is a clear photoshop though. Soeme of the "black" vehicle parts are still red in the robot shot.

    TFsource.com should offer it soon. They usually have good prices on e-hobby stuff.

    Well, this answers the question of if E-hobby will continue their line of exclusive TF's with Encore. Sweet! I have this one but it's in horrible shape so a chance to own it mint is just awesome.

    Hurray for G1.5!
