Is this worth the buy? He's my all-time favorite character and I've wanted it for a long time, but the toy of G1 Ironhide SUUUCKS...... He's complete, but it's $50, which I have to spend. So my question, is it worth it?

Normally I'd say no, I lost interest in G1 after the Classics line started. But if he is your all time fav character, then yes.

I'd say he's worth it. It's a G1 figure, at least his car mode is spot on.

The Encore toy is cheaper.

You could grab the original G1 Ironhide for a cheaper price anyway, unless the manual is important to you. Although, the lowest without a manual wouldn't be drastically lower than $50.

I went ahead and bought it... If I overpaid, I'm still gonna enjoy, and I'm sure my son will too. Even though everytime we watch the animated movie or Dark of the Moon he reminds me he dies... Nothing like having the knife in your heart twisted by an 8 year old.....

Thanks for all the replies!

I felt like that when they killed off Jazz... At least you got 3 movies with Ironhide ;)

Grats on the purchase.

Jazz was always a close number 2 with me. At least in the live action movies Jazz went out like a champ, not getting shot in the back doing his duty. But then again, if Ironhide went toe to toe with Sentinel, Ironhide would've slaughtered him thus killing the movie. So I can see why they did that.

Yeah, at least Jazz went out fighting.

Would've been nice if Ironhide had a chance to get a shot or two in though!

That said, how his death played out helped you to really hate SP, which is obviously what they were wanting.

True... When I first watched the animated movie I was 8 and when Ironhide died, I cried like a little girl. 20 years later, I did the same thing...

Talk about going out like a champ! Get shot 3 times, surrounded by enemies with all your friends dead and STILL trying to fight..... That's when Ironhide became my all time favorite.

Can certainly understand why he's your favourite. Always preferred the smartarses myself, they just speak to me. Not sure if that is a good thing! ;)

The Shuttle Hijack scene is my favorite scene of the movie because my favorite Autobots die. :grin:

Don't throw tomatoes at me! :cry:
