I like this, I believe this is the first original figure of theirs.
It would be hilarious if this actually gets released before the iGear version.

Not bad. I like the iGear version better, but it's too large for a Classics collection (although maybe not an MP collection now).

Still, it's not really an auto-buy. How does it's alt. mode scale with the classics line? It looks a bit too big.

was going to say it was really awkwardly proportioned and just really strangely designed...then I got down to the pic of it next to the Hasbro Ironhide. :P

Looks ok, size seems fine. I'll have one, and the inevitable Ratchet repaint, if the price is right. Which it probably won't be. I'd pay £30-40 for one, in the right colours with a good load of accessories and some encouraging reviews.

Upon further inspection, this needs a better head.

Too boxy to fit in with my Classics and that head is just odd. I'll be passing.

The size is bang-on perfect. He wouldn't look out of place in either the Masterpiece or Classics line. And so ends my compliments of this figure.

The alt mode might look more like G1's IH. Though, the bot mode is a bit too boxy for my taste. Lots of G1 lovers will like this figure.

I like the design of iGear's Ironhide better. This version is still so much better looking than Classics/Henkei, but not sure if it's needed (and the proposed 7 - 10 weapons) when a new version is already coming out (regardless of the delays).

Trailblazer, Blitzwing, and so many other characters are still waiting for a proper release.

I do like iGear's versions looks better. It's a tad expensive to me though, especially since I want both Ironhide and Ratchet. If this one can come in at a lower price I might be able to ignore the weird legs and overall really boxy look.

I really like the idea of a classics redo of Ironhide/Ratchet. I have the official classics ironhide/ratchet and someways I like them, but I'm not in love with them. Also, I like the igear ones, but I am not an MP scale collector.

The head, and hands are too big though, the arms are too thick, and the chest is a tad to boxy.

If they could make some of those fixes and the cost is low enough I would totally get this.

I dunno, I could pass on that stuff too. Igear is sort of running the game these days. If only they could get more product out. I have no interest in a less visually appealing Ironhide. Go big or go home guys.

Unless the altmode looks exactly like those mini-vannettes from the 80s (although iGear seems to have those covered too) PASS, PASS, PASS!!!!

Looking forward to the Galvatron upgrade set, but this looks like its from a different brand altogether...

The more I look at this the more I'm liking it.

He would make a better classics Ironhide too when compared to classics Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, who are huge compared to the rest. They make the actual classics Ironhide look puny.

Its just the head needs to be tweeked a little. It looks like the 2 circular bulges on the sides of his helmet sit up to high? His cheeks are too puffy and his eyes are too wide on the outer edges?

Their website says this could have a Fall 2012 release. I have to say I'm intrigued. I want to see the vehicle mode now.

Fall release seems optimistic though being that we saw Tyrant a long time ago and that hasn't been released. I would take less weapons if it could be cheaper and a quicker release too.

Definitely needs Ratchet.
