    Love it! The blocky proportions and akimbo arms really scream Ironhide to me.

    Can't watch this yet cause I am at work, but I am very curious. This guy is not yet on my "get list" and he will really need to blow me away because so far I have been very underwhelmed.

    This may sound weird, but it is so cool that you are able to do this, especially with unreleased figures. It is a sneak peak at figures I already want and they always help me decide if the others are worth my time! Always worth my time! Thanks for it!

    I personally think it looks better than the Voyager mold. Only thing I'm not too crazy about is the arm cannons/kibble. I really like how blocky and solid he look sin robot mode.

    EDIT: The drone is nifty as well. Glad to hear it can be stored in vehicle mode.

    Sweet figure..but I'm going to be honest here: I can't remember a scene from either movie where he has a faceplate..only places I've seen it was in game promotional images..it just looks weird to me now.. :p 

    I like the bulky look of him..cool legs, cool chest!

    very cool review, but the tag is wrong is not ROTF nor Generations, is just Hunt for the Decepticons

    Yes, but it's CLEARLY the movie version of the figure. I'll update the tags though.

    It is just me, or are the smokestacks better scaled than on the Voyager?

    Yeah, the stacks are a little shorter here, but it seems to be due more to the transformation itself than any nerfing for safety reasons.

    So the drone is the left cannon? It doesn't look very movie accurate... or was this addressed in the review?

    I love movie Ironhide's design and the Voyager never did it justice in my eyes. This one isn't perfect but it's nice to just have a new Ironhide mold, I'll definitely be picking him up when he arrives.

    Far better than the Voyager. But REALLY dissapointed that he doesn't have the other cannon. the proportions are near perfect here, and he has the least kibbly vehicle mode. He also has better arms.

    I'll still get him, but I'll have to craft a second cannon.

    Damn the incorrect news title!
    For a moment, i went damn-near unconscious from the shock thinking we'd be getting a G1-accurate Ironhide. Luckily, i'm in the minority of people who likes the Universe version.
    Still, nice to see there's a Movie Deluxe Ironhide review though, i'll check it out.
    And for the record, Hasbro has long confirmed that the line without a subtitle is the Transformers: The Movie line.

    Love this deluxe version of him. His legs look a lot bigger and bulkier than the Voyager, which is a plus, since it's more accurate. I don't care too much that the left cannon is inaccurate. Recon Ironhide's left cannon is inaccurate, too, so it's ok. I'm used to it. :p  Plus, it's the drone from the game. That's awesome!
