    YouTube - Transformers Universe Classics 2.0 Deluxe Ironhide Review

    I Bring You Transformers Universe Classics 2.0 Deluxe Ironhide. The New Mold of Wave 3 from the New Universe Line of the Beloved Character who is in the Transformers Movies(even if he was killed off in the 1986 Movie). Ironhide who was a Red Van in the G1 Series is now a SUV in the Universe Line. This Figure has what you want in a Autobot Deluxe. Detailed Robot and Alt Mode, Amazing Articulation, and a Weapon that is Two in One. He has some funny things about him like the Oregon License Plate(Don't know what it's Reference Too). His Transformation is fun and complex but not frustrating. The G1 Character like his Movie Counterpart is BACK and Better than Ever!

    My Opinion Besides from Universe Prowl THIS Was the Figure I was Most Excited About and this EXCEEDED My Expectations. He is a MUST HAVE! I Can't Say Enough about this Figure!

    In the Video Review I Show Off The Key Points in this Order:

    Details and Color Scheme
    Articulation
    Weapon Feature
    Transformation to SUV
    Size Comparisons in SUV
    Transformation back to Robot
    Size Comparisons in Robot Mode
    Final Thoughts and Rating

    If you guys need pics let me know

    Thanks for the props! Glad it finally showed up! I'm hoping to get my review up along with Sideswipe later today.

    Oh, and just for the record, I'm pretty certain the license plate is a reference to the G1 comic, when the Ark crashed into "Mount. St. Hilary" (a play on Washington's Mount. St. Helens) in Oregon.

    Can't Wait for the Reviews Bro! Ironhide I'm VERY Happy with! His Transformation is the most fun besides Powerglide and if Galvatron didn't have the back heavy parts and loose arms he be as great as this guy.

    I put a special thanks in my video description. I'm looking forward to your Sideswipe Review!

    holy backpack batman!

    Transformation looks real fun, but the weapon and the hunchback are kind of disappointing. I'll wait for more pics of this guy before actually buying him.

    Holy shit thats one nice figure! Even if it werent ironhide id still be prompted to get it for the ultra fun complex transformation. Really diggin the gattling gun, but it looks like he had it on a little crooked.

    This figure will be mine!

    You know... I just realised tonight that we'll be getting the entire Autobot shuttle crew remade.

    Only one that hasn't been announced yet Stateside is Ratchet, but he's a given since Takara's doing one anyway.

    All we need then is the Insecticons updated and presto, the entire visible invasion force on the shuttle! (Not counting Blitzwing since he doesn't show up in that scene, and the Constructicons would be the Constructicon Maximus repaint)

    Sean, I like your reviews. They help me make up my mind before hand with deciding whether or not I want to purchase a certain figure. However, I must say I don't understand the complications you were having with Galvy being a back heavy figure. I just got him today, and after I saw your review on him I was concerned since I really wanted this guy.

    I agree some parts come off way too easy, I've fixed that with some superglue coats on the ball joints, but i don't have any of the back heaviness problems you were experiencing, and was able to get the poses I wanted from him very well.

    It's just my opinion, on this figure, but perhaps now that my joints are fixed I'm getting better balance now, who knows? Another possibility I found, depending on the taste of certain people, is that you can remove the missile packs that I think have the potential to make him more back heavy than necessary. Action figure purists may not like that idea, but hey it's an alternative, one that I'm sure many kit bashers will exercise I'm certain.

    To stay on subject of this thread, that Ironhide looks amazing and I will no doubt be purchasing this figure.

    Thanks Sean.

    THANKS BRO! Yea That Movie Was Traumatizing! They Killed Off Prime, Starscream, Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet, Brawn, Wheeljack, Megatron(Kinda), and others like they were Clone Troopers in Star Wars Movies and just cuz they are robots doesn't mean we don't have attachment to them and the way they died pissed me off cuz they get shot all the time in the series yet all of a sudden they did in this movie. This is why I perfer the 2007 Movie over the 1986 movie it's too hard to watch and all the plot holes.

    ANYTIME! Galvatron is way better when you take the back parts off him and when you practice transforming him more. I practiced before my review but it was such a struggle when I tried all those times I just wanted to show the struggle and not edit anything out. It was definitely a hard review.

    I absolutely detest the new hands they are putting on Transformers nowadays. The open-handed, slap-you-around look isn't cool at all. And it's a shame they chose to give those hands to Ironhide. Also don't like how you can clearly see his hand joint.

    What is with his top half coming apart from his bottom half in robot mode? You were just holding him and it was coming apart.

    Anyways, despite those grumblings, very nice review, Sean. Keep it up!

    Giant crotch still bugs me :(  Sharp shoulders and detailing feels a little too far into the movie-aesthetic maybe too, I've always thought that.

    I'll still buy it though.

    Interesting to see the transformation, thanks Sean!
