    I'm surprised we haven't seen a review for DLX Leadfoot yet, I thought Peaugh or Optibotimus would have jumped on the one that showed up on Ebay last time.

    The Ironhide looks ridiculous to me.

    Ironhide looks more orange than red in those shots...I'll still pick him up though.

    Maybe Ironhide is supposed to look a bit rusty?

    Red is a color that is pretty difficult to keep accurate in lightboxed photos, especially without photoshopping/color correcting.

    ugh, i'm going to be honest here, in my opinion, this colorscheme for ironhide is hideous. i'll definitely avoid this guy.

    No, the color scheme just doesn't work. At least not in the alt mode.

    I actually like the color scheme in alt mode for Ironhide. It has a very 80's feel to it, IMO, which means instant buy for me!

    I don't get the appeal either. I like the original, warts and all.

    As for Prime, not a bad redeco at all IMHO, but...I'm not much of a gold color fan, so again the original is prolly more up my alley.

    I think I'll stick with my regular DOTM Ironhide. An easy pass, sadly.

    The red is too bright and the orange is WTF. If I buy it, I know I'll end up wanting to do some paint work.

    The DOTM voyager is my least favorite Ironhide mold, apart from the headsculpt. The body is way too skinny and flimsy looking.

    Aside from the wonky arms though, he's really poseable and has a satisfying transformation IMHO.
