    Hmm, could just be a regular fan's truck on the street, but embossed like that? Interesting...

    I thought I remembered reading somewhere that Ironhide was going to be a black truck - this is really cool if it's the real deal!

    Loose those talk stacks, and I'd like him more. Unless he has a "diesel" engine they just don't make sense.

    Also, I think that that site is wrong about Ironhide being an old Nissan van. He was a Toyota Previa model, not a Nissan if I recall right. Hey, my truck has a nice diecast metal Autbot emblem on my front grille, but that doesn't make him a movie character. Just look at my avatar and my profile to see it on my grille. As someone mentioned, a truely Autobot fan could've had his truck customized, but from the description, I doubt it. Why, for secrecy, they didn't drive around with it COVERED astounds me.

    GMC... Garage Man's Companion. :-D

    I foresee much bitching at the lack of red.

    I also foresee many "it should be Trailbreaker!" posts.

    By "Ironhide" I hope they mean "Trailbreaker.' You know, what with it being a black pickup instead of a red van (or ar red anything for that matter).


    But if it's Trailbreaker, then the nuts in my trail mix are all a tingle.



    -by "trail mix" LB means "dusky unmentionables

    I'm totally cool with Ironhide being a bada** black pickup.

    Actually, as long as it feels appropriate to the film, I have no problems at all with the actual Transformers not having their original G1 alt modes... though I'm expecting everyone but Prime to look pretty different from their G1 bot modes. Prime better have his trademark head, or I'm going to be... mildly annoyed. Well. Since there's an airforce base involved in the movie, I guess asking for Starscream to be his traditional G1 self wouldn't be asking too much... I'm totally cool with differences between the film and G1, but some things are just dogma. Canon if you will. So it already has been written, so it better be done. That kinda thing.

    I heard a rumor that Jazz is supposed to be a Lamborghini? Awesome. I love that idea. Bumblebee as a Camaro? Also cool. Prime as a long-nose semi? No problem at all.

    The most important thing to me, with the Prime head and Starscream being a fighter jet that at least resembles an F15 coming in a very close second, is that the Transformers themselves are both awesome and appropriate.

    And whoever is annoyed that Megatron can't be a gun for this movie... to that I say... grow up. :p  That would be completely inappropriate. I think it was officially said that there'd be no mass-shifting in the movie? I'm glad. I believe they're trying to make the movie in the setting somewhere along the lines of "Holy crap, maybe my car can really turn into this awesome robot!"-sort of realism. If Megatron were a gun... he'd be a pretty pitiful robot. I reference Masterforce on this account. Those who've seen Masterforce know what I'm talking about. Those who haven't, well... don't worry too much about it.

    Sorry, I'm a little drunk, and I went on a rant. So Ironhide! Yeah! If those are real Ironhide pictures... I'm going to want a pickup with an embossed Autobot symbol on the tail of my own. Unless, of course, something cooler comes along with an equally awesome embossed faction symbol.

    I thought 'Screamer in the movie was rumored to look like the new F-22A Raptor? I think I remember seeing that somwhere "unofficially." Still cool anyway we get him, and I can't wait for the Masterpiece figure. As soon as I get my two, I will review him.

    Now with an added justification for that Universe Spychanger Ironhide to be named Ironhide!

    to the doubters, do note that this truck is hoisted up on a flatbed trailer just like MANY of the autos we've seen for the movie so far.

    Either they were in a hurry or they wanted to let this leak... that logo could've been covered SO easily and no one would've noticed.

    I'll take him as is. Trailbreaker ain't much of a character but Ironhide is. And with a big custom pickup mode, theres little doubt he's the tough hardass veteran he was in G1.
