    I've seen better looking stuff made from paper.

    Those don't look like they actually change modes.

    Not a wheel between the two, although they look very much like the cartoon.

    I'd be hailing a 3 year old a genius if they even came close to this!

    I still don't get why these 3P companies put time/resources into figures already nailed by others :confused:

    Given the use of Jizai's Powerglide, I'd have thought they would have followed Jizai's IronHide design.

    I'm going to assume this is what they're doing and told the work experience kid to stick a photo of Ironhide, any photo, on facebook that would scare everybody off swamping them with preorders.

    :p 

    If it was tidied up a bit with proper plastic and the proportions were smoothed out, this would probably just about pass for an action master/robot replica style kinda deal. As it is, it just looks like a bodged art class project.

    It looks bad but G1 Ironhide was worse.

    Between the heads and upper body pieces you can get for G1 IH and Ratchet, Classics version and the iGear PP versions, where exactly does this inferior looking product fit in?

    3rd party groups need to stop stepping all over the same character. There are still a TON of characters that need attention that will sell, why all the repeats?
