    Just got him, and I must say, I love the light blue on him. So far I think he's the only one that looks good with this All-Spark blue. I also very much enjoy him being deep blue as opposed to the black.

    I quickly turned him into his robot mode, enjoying probably the best Auto-Morph on any figure in its legs. I was very surprised how easy it was to transform him, even though it was my first time.

    So then I started turning him into a truck. Two hours later I'm stuck at:

    He's a truck but not flat. I flatten him out and-

    WHAT AM I NOT DOING. This is making me more frustrated than Leader Prime did when I first got him. I know it's just one stupid thing, but I can't figure it out.

    Anyways, he completes my movie toy collection, at least for now.

    I know it's cruel to laugh but ...

    :lol  "Oh god be a truck please" :lol 

    Now, it's kinda hard to see, but the key is this:

    You're really close in this picture. It takes some force, but the arms need to pop up onto those pins I have highlighted in green. Then bend the legs at the hip (upwards into the truck body) to straighten the arms out and everything'll be in the right place.

    I had that problem with my movie Ironhide the first couple times I transformed him. I don't remember what remedied the situation, I just kept messing with it until it went together.

    THANK YOU QUINJESTER. I knew it was something I was just NOT noticing. I will try that before I go to sleep tonight.

    Feel free to laugh. Glad you liked my pic wording.

    Those are some of the funniest pictures ever @ 2005. It's funny because it's true - we've all been there. "What the #*+& am I doing wrong?!"

    QJ's advice is definitely on the money. The only thing I can add is that there are two wedges that slide into Ironhide's chest plate - in addition to the pegs that go into the arms.

    Holy crap, those are too funny... and actually, somewhere along the thoughts I also had.

    Now... I actually have an issue with the automorph, maybe someone can help me. The gears don't feel strong enough, and the panels like to catch, and I end up having to work the mechanism by hand. Any advise?

    He looks alright in truck mode, not sure I'm sold on his bot mode though. Will have to see him up close.

    Had exactly the same problem with my Ironhide dude! You got those pics right on the money! :lol  You've been steered true: it's pegging the hips properly...took me about an hour and a half with the instructions laid out in front of me to figure it out. You're in good company dude! And nice movie 'bots by the way.

    I NEED that toy. I haven't seen any new TF at retail for weeks.

    Oh, I was there, too. The other day my kid was stuck (with the original deco Ironhide) so I gave him a helping hand, and I went there all over again until I remembered those bloody pegs :lol

    Thats an easy problem to fix. To get him into Alt mode from there just turn his legs downward one click at the hips. That lets his pelvis go up into the cab of the truck while keeping the legs level.

    Edit: See how the pelvis is positionedon mine

    Yeah Movie Voyager Ironhide is a pain to get back to Truck. I had that same problem when I got mine.

    yeah that odd angle the hips need to be in is confusing the first time around. you basically have to line up the angle with the chest plate part and it fits. I dont have him with me at school though so i cant double check.

    Just got him today. So cool. All the details an be seen now thanks to the lighter color. I had tons of love for him and it is better than the original black color.

    Nice pics. I shouldn't have looked at your pics again...now I'm getting depressed because I don't have this awesome toy (except for the bot insignia on his forehead that I somewhat dislike) :(
