    Mods, I could not find a thread for the pictorial feedback. If there is one, please kindly merge, thanks.

    On to the figure.

    Got lucky today while I was shopping in the local Tesco and stumbled upon TF Prime Cyberverse Ironhide and Dreadwing. Since they were the only 2 new figures on the shelf, I quickly snagged it.

    Summary Impressions:
    Ironhide have designs that harks back to the G1 days. The headsculpt is undeniably Ironhide with some movie-verse concepts thrown in. The paint apps are minimal at best but works surprisingly well for him. I have heard people complaining about his lack of color, but in my case it is sufficient and adequate.

    He comes packed with his cannons that are translucent blue and pegs literally anywhere that has the same sized peg hole.

    Truck mode looks great and it jives well with his tough guy and muscular stature. The molded details in vehicle mode is also done nicely particularly on his front grille and kangaroo bar. I like this sort of attention to detail.

    Here are pics of the transformation sequence that I took for the heck of it.

    The one thing that bugged me was that he SHOULD have neck articulation / swivel. The transformation design is as such that the designers could have worked in a neck swivel. Methinks if they did, this figure would be improved tenfold. He has this staring straight at you look/pose all the time.

    The molded plastic detail are great for a figure this small. If TT and Hasbro keeps this up, I will buy all the Cyberverse Commander figure irregardless of line.

    And speaking of weapons, he can combine the weapons with his wave mate Dreadwing for added bad-assery.

    Once thing I like about the Cyberverse toys be it Commanders or even Legions, the interactivity and combination possibilities are endless. This is the mini version of 'ARMS UP', in my opinion. :D 

    Overall I am very pleased with him and if you see him anywhere, just grab him. Definitely worth your time and money.


    Thanks for reading.

    Despite the awful arm kibble and lack of a swivel neck (the main drawback of cyberverse leaders), this figure looks fantastic.

    I like the paint details a lot, and the fact that he has a bit of ankle articulation is great! A badass design and a nice middle ground between G1 and Movieverse.

    So far, the cyberverse figures have been awesome. I'll definitely be picking up Ironhide and Dreadwing.

    great review, can't wait to get my hands on this guy he's looking really excellent.

    Won't deny that I'm disappointed in the lack of a head swivel, head and thigh swivels should be mandatory on all cv commanders imo. At the very least those fantastic ankle joints are really helping balance out the lack of thigh swivels though.

    Looks STELLAR.

    I love that look for 'Hide. I dunno about you, but it SCREAMS Ironhide to me.

    Nice pics too!

    Does anyone have Cyberverse DOTM Ironhide and this guy? Mine is at my office and I bet you can use the Dotm cannons on the prime version.

    That sideways foot articulation is probably the best thing ever.

    Found Ironhide today, the joints feel a bit loose and it seems odd that his front wheels would be on friction joints when they don't even move for transformation. Other than that he's pretty neat, I can't wait to have this design in Deluxe form.

    amethysted posted this idea for a quick mod:
    I liked this and so I took a few before and after shots to demonstrate. (At least, I think this is what he was describing! :lol )

    The only downside is this covers the peg hole for the cannons on the arms; but I prefer the aesthetic of having "open hands." Personal preference!

    Very easy to switch back for alt mode too!

    I finally opened my Ironhide the other day and he's a pretty cool little figure. I'll echo the gushing over his ankle articulation/transformation. My only beef is that mine falls apart pretty easily, mainly his forearms and front tires popping off a lot during transformation. So I guess I'll just leave him in robot mode most of the time.

    The head and chest looks nice. Those arms remind me more of Rumble/Frenzy.

    Just bought this guy today and he is fantastic. No complaints from me (although a neck swivel would have been nice), he's super fun! :D

    They put the ball joints on the wrong half of the arms. The other way would have effectively given him a bicep swivel and an elbow joint. Now he just has an elbow joint and a forearm swivel, which isn't nearly as useful. Really a shame.

    I'm having problems with this mold. His cannons are too tight in the pegs and one of them has already broken off in the hole.

    THAT....SUX

    I just found him and dreadwing.

    Another homerun on both counts. For an all new TFmation IH does very well.

    The arms are a bit loose on mine as well, and the cannons are real tight. Nothing that a bit of future cant fix. as for the cannons, The hard plastic is good, the real soft plastic is not. The best so far is the middle some fo the legions came with.

    This one is great, in bot mode, It reminds me ALOT of G1 IH. I like that.
