I'm always a bit leery of superficial recolors of American figs. So far most of it all looks like they just added shiny metalic parts to most of them and not adressed some of the actual mold problems, like Ironhide's head. It still looks like he's gonna be looking down all the time.

Still no fix on the head problem. I modified my Classics version and it looks way better. I'll probably get him if he goes for a sale price.

Whoever designed this transformation did a really poor job. The side windows are all fragmented, the windows are part clear, part painted? The robot mode looks good but man that vehicle mode looks like it's been in a car wreck. At least the Henkei version has darker windows. Was hoping the Henkei would make me change my mind, but still... nope. :( Thanks for posting the pix though! :grin:

Granted the pix don't show him put together as well as he could be, but in another thread the point was discussed that he should look like he's been in a car wreck. Even his bio mentions all the "battle testing" he's been through--it's Ironhide!

Don't let the rough exterior turn you off, though. This one's a gem, and one of the first great incarnations of this G1 character we've gotten (the other passable one being a Botcon exclusive, so good luck with that one...).

The red is better... Hasbro's version is a little red-orange.

Glad I preordered this version.

The stripe and dark shoulders really improve this figure.

I don't understand why Takara is releasing these figures with G1 accurate paint jobs while Hasbro isn't.

Why isn't Hasbro coloring them like that to begin with? Has there ever been a reason offered? Laziness? A secret deal with Takara? I just don't get it.

Blame Walmart. Hasbro have to bring their toys in cheap, hence fewer paint aps. Takara are selling to adult fans who don't mind paying a bit more.

That could explain an extra stripe here and there, but what about Astrotrain, who is a different color entirely?

Astrotrain was released in his original toy colours, thus fitting in with the "this is what G1 toys would look like if we made them today" theme.

I will definitely be picking this up over the Hasbro release, mostly due to the better red used, non-blue face and I like the stripe too.

Takara make me laugh though. I'm not a fan of the chrome they go crazy with on most figures, but the one time it would actually make sense is on Ironhide's bull-bar, which would be chromed (or at least metallic) on a real car, and they dont chrome it :lol:

Ironhide is still looking down at his shoe lace.

But at least the colors are much nicer now.
