GET TO DA CHOPPA!
YouTube - ROTF Recon (Jungle Attack) Ironhide
nice review. I like the extra weapons. not the paint job though.
Well, if it's the stripes, those look to be EASILY removable with some rubbing alcohol.
Some minor things though, I'm not sure if you are aware of those:
1. Don't bother trying to get the car hood parts flat in robot mode like you did in the video. Ironhide's design actually has them in the 45 degree angle (the way they look when you let them hang loose)..I think the original instructions of movie1 Ironhide also tells you to flat them out, but there is nothing to peg it into and leaving it hanging makes it more movie accurate.
2. The wheels on his shoulders can actually fold up further and peg into two tabs next to his head..not sure if you missed this or if you kept it like that for aesthetic.
Anyway, cool review as always!
Yeah, I know about the arms. And the hood pieces I know are supposed to sit at an angle, it's just that the one piece was popping up a lot higher than the one on the right and I was trying to even them out.
Like the new head. And weapons. And back kibble transformation.
This figure would be an instant buy for me, if not for the paint job.
Great review, as always.
I might get this Ironhide.
I wonder who's gonna be the first to repaint this guy into a transforming Rambo...
This will complete my plans for all Ironhides.
First, I'm going to take the guns and head off the orignal ROTF, paint them, and place them on the TFTM Premium. Then, I'll take his guns and give them to the ROTF, which I will repaint red, and then this one could work as Trailbreaker, after I distribute his guns amongst all my other ROTF figs.
PLEASE tell me we do not have more of the smudgy paint jobs. PLEASE. :~
Looks like the best ironhide yet. Some questions: Can you remove the arm cannons and have him just hold the long guns? Also can both knives be held one in each hand? And can the two arm cannons combine like on the movie 1 iron hide.
And finally what's the ETA for this guy and Bludgeon
Not sure, but I still kind of want it. It's low priority, that's for sure.
Maybe. My blue Offroad Ironhide repaint has always bothered me a bit...
Will more than likely get. Hope we get a new Ironhide all together for TF3.
Way more clearer than genzao's review
Actually, the stripes are quite solid and clean. No smudges that I've noticed.
Yes, the cannons are removable, he can hold the guns in his hands, and each knife can be held individually. The two cannons do not combine in any way I'm aware of.
I think he and Bludgeon are due in January, but will likely start popping up at retail in early december.
I'm at a dilema, I have the first movie Ironhide figure but yet I want to get this one aswell. Should I? Or should I wait and see if there ever going to make a HA Ironhide? Or is that a rumor? Can someone Inform me about that.
