    I wasn't even planning on getting the Deluxe but I picked him up on a whim and was really surprised.

    And I love the movie toys, they are the main ones I collect. I picked up some animated toys and though there was some great engineering, the quality of them sucked (I had to return both my Bee and Starscream because of QC issues). My Scream actually still has two left hands (but at least the transformation mechanic works now).

    I think the deluxe Ironhide is the better more accurate version of the character. I love it! And as far as the movie toys in general, the are amazing. Their complexity and aesthetic is so awesome that i admire the designers for the effort and time they put into these complex versions of classic characters. Remember the TF brand is constantly changing and i am excited to see where they go after the movies, but will continue to enjoy the movies for what they are :)

    My QC is amazing. There's only three things I don't like about him:

    1. He's small.
    2. His arms are small, even considering proportion
    3. That plastic should have been silver, not blue.

    Apart from those, he's fantastic.

    I think he is a cool figure. Looks more accurate than the voyager version.

    As for deluxe, he better than Ratchet.

    I had an opinion, and you called me a "baby" as a result. Are you that much of a ROTF apologist that you get offended when I criticize the toys from that line? Loser.

    I think deluxe Ironhide is fantastic. For one, he looks like Ironhide, which none of the Voyagers have been able to do. Plus, he's small, posable and comes with his turret from the game.

    The only thing I don't like is that the turret takes the place of his cannon.

    My only gripe with deluxe Ironhide is the blue post piece his head is on, I feel like it should click into place, but it does not.

    I agree. He should be upscaled, but that's not likely to happen.
