TFW Prime Arms Micron Ironhide Gallery

We're back with another Transformers toy gallery. Today we are sharing with you a gallery of Transformers Prime Arms Micron Ironhide.

Ironhide was released back at the end of September in Japan. He's a recolored version of Prime Sergeant Kup - unlike a lot of other Arms micron releases, Ironhide did not get any remolding to add extra ports for Arms Microns. He looks fantastic in the red and black - I would go as far as to say this is the deco that Kup should always have been released in, because it fits the design so much better than Kup's green. Ironhide like all Arms Micron releases comes with a sheet of stickers in lieu of paint apps, but he barely needs them because he looks good with or without the stickers. A cute touch is the inclusion of a "bullet hole" sticker if you want to customize the look of your Ironhide (or indeed any Transformer) with a war-wound.

Ironhide's partner Micron is I.R., a well-built orange Micron who turns into Ironhide's signature cannon. He's a fun little robot and looks equally good attached to Ironhide's arm or hand-held, but his true strength comes out when you combine him with other Arms Microns, like B.H. and C.L., and he forms some suitably oversized heavy weapons for the Autobot weapons specialist.

All in all, Ironhide is warmly recommended. If you have Kup, then Ironhide is a straight-up red version of that toy, but the colors feel more right on the mold from the get-go than Kup's deco. Import prices might put you off, but I feel the extra cost is worth it for a massively improved deco which takes a good figure and makes it a great one.

Seeing Prime Ironhide next to his movie counterpart makes me hate the Bayformers all that much more (Prime Ironhide = example of a perfectly feasible live-action, traditional-look design).*

*Sorry, don't want this thread to devolve into yet another movie debate.

He's not a Japanese exclusive, right?

Well then keep this private.

I like both designs, but the movie design a little more.
