    Ironhide always did seem to get shafted. His G1 toy made it look like he lost his head... his CHUG was tubby and made him look down all the time... and his character in Animated was so sideline I barely felt like picking him up when he came out... and I don't even wanna get started on the movies. =_____=
    For an official release, TFP Ironhide has his flaws, but he's pretty decent overall.
    I just really didn't feel like putting on stickers for him... they'd come out anyway...
    He has Kup's cannons, and is transformed with the hood popped off and reattached so it's flush with his back... I really wish someone would figure out a swivel joint mod for it that wouldn't make it too flimsy...
    painted with silver and gunmetal grey highlights. generally a quick, dirty repaint that took me... about an hour tops?...
    And now we have a hybrid Ironhide that evokes G1 and the movies, and is generally not too bad... if a bit small. But he scales with Ratchet, so that's ok.

    Looks great. I personally am quite fond of this mold, especially at Deluxe scale (CV not as much).

    it's a decent mold. I'm still a little torn about the shoulder pads, but I think it looks a lot like Ironhide, so I'm happy. :) 
    But yeah... Cyberverse scale is kinda small for me... and I was never a gigantic fan of soft clear plastic weapons...

    Nicely done. TBH, it would've been a fantastic figure if it had been made a Voyager.
