    The only version available is the black one.

    Red never came out.

    This is disappointing but not surprising. Also makes me think no one at Voodoo knows what they're doing. They're having these problems and they're just telling us NOW, when it's too late, after people have been posting and asking for updates? Ridiculous. I guess they've never heard of Kickstarter either. preorders were slow? Really? Wonder why that was! Maybe no one wanted to bother placing an order for a project that had gone dark. I really wanted to get Animus but if this is how Voodoo was run then good riddance, we don't need more 3P companies like this.

    What a bummer. Even more of a bummer is that it'll likely dissuade other 3Ps from attempting their own IH/Ratchet versions.

    I hope not, cause the TT Ironhide and Ratchet are so plain looking in robot mode.

    Terrible news. The only reason I bought a Ratchet was to buy an Ironhide...

    I'll keep an eye on this, anyway...

    TY Voodooo. I LOVE my white version...

    Well at least now, if you buy Takara Ironhide. They will look similar, but not the same ^_^
    I got in touch with Voodoo, in the hope of securing one of their many samples. No luck :(

    Well guess BBTS will be cancelling the pre-order I kept all this time. Darn, well hopefully one the mod kits for MP ironhide will finally come out.

    I have a hard time calling them 'masterpieces'.
    Really nice voyagers? Yes.
    Masterpiece? Not quite. Almost there tho...

    It is sad news for me cos that means I won't have an ironhide van with side mirrors already. I was still hoping voodoo comes thru with their ironhide.

    It's a shame but I can't say I didn't see it coming either. I really wanted this guy to be my Ironhide but when it was month after month with no word, I just went and got an official. Better something than nothing.:(

    This is interesting news! Even though I ended up buying MP Ironhide after this was declared dead, I'd still be interested in picking up Animus. From their announcement it sounds like he'll eventually receive a wider release than just at Cyber City, will have to keep an eye out for that.

    Awesome! I'm still in for this. MP Ironhide didn't get any more appealing with the passage of time, and the 3P that improved him seems only interested in knocked-up versions. The head sculpt here isn't my favorite, but I've got a TFC Ironhide with a fantastic noggin just waiting to be donated.

    Happy for anyone who was holding out on this, I hope the price is decent and it gets a full run for you all.

    Glad to hear it's coming out after all, I like the busier look of these better than the smooth-legged MPs.

    I'm so happy to see this came through. Earlier this spring, after Voodoo posted their cancellation, I visited Toy Dojo's brick and mortar location on Robert Browning Street in Austin. My previous visit, they had the revised Animus prototype on site, and I went in vague hope Eddie might still have it so I could make him an offer on it.

    Unfortunately, it was long gone, having been returned to Voodoo. Disappointed, I was going to break down and settle for a Takara Ironhide. Eddie though, was a total gentleman and refused to take my money. He told me there was a chance that Cyber City might have this as an exclusive, and that I should wait.

    Thank you Cyber City Con and Voodoo Robots, for making this happen. And thank you Eddie for steering me away from a bad decision.
