    I think he's really good, I'm definitely picking him up.

    From the early pics, "Bucket of Yuck" comes to mind. I want a new Voyager mold. I understand why they did it, but I am looking for more detail, not less. No need for this figure for the collection.

    Not really that excited. I don't think his design lends itself well to the deluxe sizepoint.

    I just hope the blue plastic looks better in person. That seemed to happen a lot with some ROTF toys...

    I thought I'd hate Deluxe Ratchet, but he's sitting here next to me and I love him to pieces (after adding a few paint apps myself). I'll give deluxe Ironhide a shot, too.

    He looks great. Will definitely buy him when he's released.

    Haven't had him in hand yet, but to me he looks as good as a deluxe sized version of movie Ironhide possibly could.

    The live action CGI model is hella complex for the character (OK, they are for all, but Ironhide is more 'busy' than most) and to get as good a representation of him as we are going to in deluxe form, well I couldn't really ask for much more.

    Same goes for Ratchet.

    I'm planning to get it. He looks like a great version of the character, and will look nice back to back with my Deluxe Ratchet.

    He seems like a cool little rendition of the character. I don't think I will pick him up though because I have like 4 voyager movie Ironhide figures.

    I'll happily pick him up. He looks pretty neat, though I don't think the small size will work as well for him as it did Ratchet.

    But he'll fit in perfectly with my movie Ironhide collection.

    I want Ironhide in HA/Leader scale the most.

    I'm only going to pick him up if there's nothing else in the store at the time.

    Love it. Looks like a kickass little guy, and he can fight the military Decepticons (Blackout, Starscream, the other deluxe jets, Wreckage and Bonecrusher) along with Ratchet.

    I have a feeling he'll be better in hand, plus Ironhide is my favourite character so he's a definite buy for me :)

    The transformation should be less fiddly than the voyagers. And it has the revenge of the fallen video game's gun turret drone.

    For the deluxe pricepoint I think it works. And it looks like movie ironhide.

    I don't think it looks that good. After Recon Hide it's going to be hard to impress me with movie Hides... even with the silly jungle paint app.

    I want him just for the whole nod to the game thing. However, I'd only get him if he finally got his red repaint.

    I'm a movie Ironhide fan so I'll grab him if I see him.

    I'm all for him. One of many problems I had with Voyager Ironhide was that he was lanky, while Ratchet was bulky, unlike the movie models. The deluxes fix that.

    He looks like a great representation of the movie model and has a really nice little truck mode. He also seems to transform more similar to the on-screen Ironhide. I hope he goes good with the new Voyager Optimus.
