    Orio suggested that I created a feedback thread on this guy, and since one doesn't exist... here goes nothing.

    Animated Ironhide in vehicle mode. Pretty standard stuff here. I don't have the Cybertonian Ratchet, so I can't compare, but it's a good sized vehicle.

    Animated Ironhide in robot mode. Good sized deluxe. One thing to note is that he still has the plug for Ratchet's EMP gun. The mohawk crest on his head is a highlight for me.

    The smirk is definitely sculpted on there.

    Here's a comparison pic.

    Hope this helps guys.

    Getting him and Rodimus this thursday...thanks for the review! Could you take a picture with him, Optimus, Ratchet, Jazz, Prowl, and Bumblebee? Kind of fill out some of the main G1 cast...
    I'm actually excited for him more then Rodimus. Just because I've been wanting an Ironhide way longer.

    Very nice looking. I'm probably going to have to get the Japanese version though, as Hasbro's Animated has long since disappeared here. Might have to talk the wifey into letting me hit up Ebay, as Ironhide and Rodimus are my two biggest must-haves.

    I liked the Cybertron Ratchet a lot and I'm sure I'll love this one even moreso. :D

    Orio sucks!!!! <3

    However this doesn't. Skipped Cybertron mode Ratchet for him, doesn't look like I'm going to be disappointed. Can't wait til this lands from Robot Kingdom :D

    I skipped Cybertron Ratchet when I heard about this guy too. Looks like I will be very pleased once I find him. Looks great. The mohawk is pretty awesome!

    This is one of my favorite Animated molds. I love how different he looks from Ratchet. Mine should be here any day now with my Rodimus. Thanks for the pictures :)

    He's okay. Not as visually interesting as Ratchet though. And since I already have Ratchet and had to import him because he was never likely to make it to UK shores I'm happy enough with him as I'd probably have to import Ironhide as well if I wanted him, so it all ends up costing far more than normal. Maybe if both Ironhide and Ratchet had been official UK releases I might've had both, even though I'm not much one for repaints (even with new heads).

    Ah well.

    I like this guy more that Ratchet. I don't know if its the orange, or the head sculpt, but Ironhide works better in toy form.

    Even though he has the shock paddles, its cool that they still made them applicable to the character.

    I bet I won't have a hard time finding him compared to Rodimus!

    To me they're like awesome robotic boxing gloves/brass knuckles. :lol  So the 'shock absorbers' work for me.

    I could have sworn I saw one like that planned for a Takara exclusive release... but I could be wrong. BTW I don't remember which of the two, but either Ironhide or Rodimus shows some other repaints that have yet to be released. There's a repaint of Blur, Swindle, and someone else. I'll have to check back at home to make sure.
