    I still don't like the doors on the side like that.

    I would prefer to see a mod that somehow moves the panels to the rear some how. That's all that is really needed.

    What he did to the diaper was pretty good though.

    It was funny I was transforming this guy today and my son said the diaper made him look weird. Didn't even ask him about it, he just called it out himself.

    Tbh, I think the figure is much better in person then in pics. People didn't figure out to take pictures of this guy from a top perspective.

    TT officially photography is better then Hasbros, but you can tell the guy taking the pics doesn't love the figures. They should just get some one from this board to take their official pics.

    Quick question for you guys. Is anyone else's chrome look kinda beat up? It's definitely not the same quality as my Third party stuff.

    Those mods make him look SO much better :rock 

    Honestly, if anyone knows how to do that mod, and wants to mod an Ironhide for yours truly, let me know. I'll actually order the 'bot!

    Have fun, gang!

    Images don't show.
    Link works, but...You know...

    This guy "made" (was behind the production of--?) a mass-released KO?

    ANY possibility a kit could be made for this or parts + instructions? Ironhide REALLY needs these.

    Man, so much stuff out right now and I've got a limited budget but seeing how much everybody is loving ironhide and my main focus is mp I've decided to go with mp ironhide! He beat out UW menasor and Fanstoys spotter. It was a hard choice but at the end of that day ironhide is an official mp so that's what I went with. If spotter were about $50 cheaper it would have been a harder choice. I hope menasor remains in stock for a while though. Those guys with the Takara paint are almost mps.

    Masterpiece Ironhide is badly mistransformed in the instructions - it's weird that everybody seems to be following them religiously. The correct transformation is clearly:

    So, finally got round to opening this guy last night and i'm quite impressed. Much better in-hand than i thought he'd be. Great use of accessories, was playing around with them and found out that the jet pack makes a nice wrist mounted canon with bullet effects!

    A great looking van. Too bad there are no Nissan markings anywhere.

    The only thing giving away that the van is in fact a Transformer, is the nice looking Autobot symbol on the front.

    Ready for take off.

    Some more scene recreation.

    Another scene. The chrome rifle looks nice, but since it is the only chromed weapon when compared to the weapons of all other Masterpieces in my collection, I prefer to give Ironhide one of the pistols instead.

    Loving the alternate face. Ironhide is such a great Masterpiece. So much better in hand than on any of the official photos. Very posable, a ton of accessories, fun transformation, the ultimate representation of Ironhide, what more could I wish for?

    Finally got mine Saturday! What a great figure! Such a large robot to be crammed into that van, like so many others have said. He is such an improvement after Tracks proved to be such a letdown. Good job Takara! Can't wait for the next one!

    Yeah. I like him as soon as I saw the prototype, but man do I really love having this guy in hand. Can't wait for Ratchet and all that white!

    I kibbleless waist? more solid and less 'happy' flanks? windowless forearms? A torso that is as wide as his crotch where they join? I like this figure a lot but it's far from perfect. It's really weird people are totally ignoring these flaws, sure he's great but I cant be the only one seeing all this? I'm starting to dislike the figure more than I should just to balance out the hyperbole.
