You mean the movie ones? I hear ya. Nowadays, you're pretty much safe with Prime and Megs as Voyagers, as the rest as Deluxes :)


Im seriously considering selling my brand new Ironhide and re-purchasing a Deluxe one, it's bothering me THAT much. lol


There wasn't any voyager Ironhide in the Classics series, are you talking about the movies?

(And if so I totally have a Deluxe movie Ironhide for sale)



my wording might be off, let me go check exactly what I have....

Yeah, that's Voyager Ironhide from the movie line. The Classics/Universe/Generations figures are based on the original Transformers cartoon from 1984 rather than the movies.

Hunt For The Decepticons is a subline of the Movieverse line. It existed a while after Revenge of the Fallen but before Dark of the Moon. There's no real relevance to the name change from Revenge of the Fallen to Hunt for the Decepticons, the only reason it was changed is that stores don't like to carry too much of the same product and so the change in the name and packaging helped Hasbro sell it to Target etc.
