    Amazing! Thanks, UnexpectedPanda! Oh, man, I LOVE that what we thought were weapons fire are really for his jetpack! Beautiful touch! Love the way he looks from the side and back. The wheels in his legs are especially well hidden. At this point I don't think the rumor that his hip pieces can swing back have any merit, though. I can live with them. I don't think they're any worse than Wheeljack's cartoon inaccurate arm kibble, the Lambo's ankle kibble, Bumblebee's hollow arms and backpack, Optimus' leg wheels, the jets' leg kibble, UM's but kibble, etc. Now just give us a release date and open up those preorders!

    Cool I love how slender he is - no big back pack sticking out. Nissan lisence confirmed then - not that there was much doubt although there wasn't any indication at the TTS.

    I think this guy looks incredible, Masterpiece fucking Ironhide baby. I'd love to see more of the sled accessory though.

    Also that's the box image. That's pretty quick considering we've only just seen Tracks and he is due very soon.

    One of the slides from the reveal that has Ironhide next to Prime had me a bit concerned about the torso looking ok from the front but awkwardly thick from the side but I see that's not the issue at all now. The hip kibble isn't an issue for me though I do wish it could swing back to cover the butt tires cause...butt tires.

    Overall, I can't wait to have Ironhide and eventually Ratchet in my display! Now bring on Brawn and Megatron v2 to complete a certain bummer of a scene...

    If this thing is an all in one transformation, which I do believe it is, not saying that. It is despite it's few flaws, an amazing feat of engineering.
    The G1 toy was a simple brick that didn't have to accomodate the van back in bot mode, plus not having a head and all. For this to not separate, incorporate all the van mode inside somewhere and look so damn sleek is just awesome.

    All of this figures flaws I can live with, nothing other MP figures or Transformers in general don't have. The engineering again...astonishing. I can't wait to see Ratchet...because ya know he's coming.

    Oh yeah, and Takara...Mirage please!!!

    It looks almost staggeringly slim considering it turns into a boxy van and so many parts to mess around with, it's looking like another fantastic release.

    Looks amazing!

    He looks ready for release - full set of stock images, packaging etc., but we don't even have a release date or pre-order yet.

    I think I posted the translation of the jet thrusters in the UK thread at the time. Should have put it in the Ironhide news thread I suppose :(

    Just doesn't look great. The shoulders are very strange and they seem to throw off the whole torso, and then the crotch looks like a diaper. Hip kibble is a very serious problem. Nice limbs I guess.

    This is post-lead designer change, right?

    The person in this photo is TakaraTomy designer Hisao Nishimoto.

    Not sure if this is an indication of him being MP Ironhide's designer. Would be interesting to see a new person other than Kobayashi/Hasui/Yuki in the mix.

    Still looks amazing. I wish people would stop getting so worked up about it.

    Besides, no one has this in-hand yet. We haven't seen perfect pictures from every angle imaginable. We don't even know what it can and can't do. The hip kibble, for instance, can supposedly fold behind the waist. Don't hold me to that, but that's what I heard. I also doubt that the shoulders will droop like that - they appear to be hinged, and they just happened to droop them down when taking pictures of it, which is unfortunate.

    Hey, you're entitled to your opinion, but when every MP Ironhide thread is just "this is shit, fuck this thing", it's rather tiresome.
    We get it, you don't like it, please cry me a river. You have options for a reason.

    Shogo Hasui supposedly said it was Kobayashi, but I don't think we know for sure. (SDCC 2015: The Shogo Hasui Report - Transformer World 2005 - TFW2005.COM)

    I think my main problem is the head, it's too light grey color, it's throwing off the whole figure. The face should be a gun metal/dark grey color. If TT doesn't change the face color, it's not a deal breaker for me, I'll just repaint it the correct color once I get it.

    Everything else, is pure sex for me. Engineering genius! Even the hip kibble doesn't faze me. Daaammnn, look at that booty, son!

    I see what you mean, but still, remember that the photos of photos have horrible lighting. There's a lot of glare on the face in almost all of the photos we've seen so far.

    Personally, the hip kibble has really grown on me. I think it fills out his waist a bit more.

    Honestly, who cares if people have issues, if you don't buy him. Personally I will be putting in my preorder with hlj. I hope a 3P company makes treads for that sled.
