    VEHICLE MODE

    It's a GMC Topkick. Nice detailing all over with painted taillights, clear windows (except the rear one), embossed Autobot logo at the back and "Road Armor" on the front bumper.

    TRANSFORMATION

    I thought Voyager Ratchet was awesome, but this one is mindblowing. Too hard to explain, but the transformation involves a lot of shifting and twisting. For the price, you can't ask for more. The automorphing gimmick is fantastic on this one : as move down the foot, the wheel rotate behind the legs and it makes 2 other panels shift around. It puts Ratchet's automorphing gimmick to shame.

    ROBOT MODE

    Super poseable : head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles. You can use the 2 guns separately or merge them into one big gun. It fires 4 missiles, but they're not spring-loaded. The v-shaped hood is spring loaded by the way.

    Ironhide is serious stuff guys.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Can you take a few vehicle mode pics with some assorted deluxe scale cars to see how he looks size wise?

    Sorry for the pictures, I'm anything but a photographer. :)  Having trouble with the light... it's either too dark or too bright... oh well!

    He looks great, but I wish they had done the headlights alternator style (clear plastic with chrome behind them).

    Other than that he's terrific.

    Even when complete, they look half transformed.

    Like Alternators you mean? Because Ironhide could well be an Alternators with this level of complexity.

    BTW, I just discovered it was slightly mistransformed in robot mode... I was wondering why the head was just floating on the chest, but I had to push the front wheels all the way in : the "head shelf" pegs into the wheel axles. Now it's rock solid.
