Since you showed off a promo render of Ironhide middle pic, I was wondering if the opening mouth will be a potential hint of the use of a mouthplate feature similar to MPM-4.

I'm concerned about the arms. It looks like they will have the same amount of articulation as the DOTM Iornhide. I will reserve my judgements till I see more in hand images with him properly transformed.

Right now I will wait and watch a review, so we can see someone actually use the figure. Until then I will be cautiously optimistic

He doesn't look perfect but he looks like he might be good enough to be called a masterpiece figure in my book. He's definitely one of the CG models that I imagine would be harder to make work.

The back is a mess, the chest is a mess, the head sculpt is terrible and his feet are showing in alt mode. If this is really what we're getting then it is in no way a "masterpiece"

While there is surely mistransformation, the feet being sen in truck mode doesnt appear to be part of that. It really looks like that is exactly what we are getting for those feet. And yup, doesnt really scream masterpiece to have that kind of robo kibble in alt mode.

I share similar feelings to the rest of you, I am not very excited about this release. Looks simpler than the rest and (aside from the colours here being much better) doesnt strike me to be so superior to the leader I aleady have. I know we say that a lot, but it turned out true for Prime, where the previous Leader toy (ROTF) turned out to be better in my opinion than MPM.

TF-fan kev777 wrote:So, what kind of trickery is going on with the GMC logo on the front of the car, versus the shoulders on bot mode? The logo is split on the shoulders, but appears to be 1 single piece on the car.


Must be fake kibble then, also something too bad for an MP. I get it for MP 10 since the grill totally changes shape from one mode to the next, but here it should be the same parts and we know it can be done from a multitude of previous examples.

Having seen some official pics, he's definitely mistransformed at the show.
What i would like to see is a picture of him next to Optimus, both in vehicle mode, to see how well they scale. Since the Topkick is quite a large vehicle, even next to Optimus's truck mode. the picture next to Bee makes him seem a bit small.

Yeah I'm hoping that torso is mistransformed cos it doesn't really work as it is there. There's parts of the figure I like a lot and the vehicle mode is nice but yeah I wanna see more pics first. Maybe it was transformed by someone not all that familiar with the CGI model. Cos those hood sections really gotta fold inwards diagonally towards the center.

I prefer the MPM in many ways. Not least cos it managed to get rid of most of the backpack. And also doesn't keep telling you who he is when you're transforming it.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot). Bumblebee was an unimaginative rehash.
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron, Travis Knight

*looks a close look at the vehicle mode and robot mode images, especially the pieces that form the hood*

:shock:

I got it! They're the same pieces, but the grill pieces have been flipped around. I faintly spot something that looks like a metal rod on his right (image's left) side, plus panel lines are somewhat evident:

Description and Official Images of Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-06 Ironhide

Postby Va'al » Tue Jan 09, 2018 1:49 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Just like the previous year, we have some more news directly from Hasbro regarding their recent reveal of Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-06 Ironhide, as seen at the private event at Royal Pacific Hotel for Hong Kong Toys media, taking place alongside (but not part of) the Hong Kong Toys and Games Fair 2018 (see here for our coverage), and to accompany the initial first official image of the figure.

Sporting his 2007 live-action Paramount movie look, the Autobot weapons specialist now also has a bio, a description of the toy, images of the articulation points, and a release date of Fall 2018 - but no price point at the time of writing. Check it all out below!

Transformers Masterpiece Movie Series Ironhide MPM-6

(Ages 8 and up/ Approx. Retail Price: $XX.XX/Available: Fall ‘18)

The Masterpiece Movie Series IRONHIDE MPM-6 figure is perfect for fans and collectors alike, with features inspired by the explosive 2007 Transformers live action movie. The figure showcases the practical AUTOBOT Weapons Specialist with impressive attention to detail. Imagine unleashing IRONHIDE action with die cast detailing, articulated hands, posable neck, movable faceplate and two cannon accessories. Converts from robot to GMC Heavy Duty Topkick 6500 4x4 Crew Cab Edition mode in 45 steps. Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.

He looks a bit better when not doubling over in pain. Severe lack of paint on him though. Those dull gray rotors are... Ew. I know he's got a disfiguring scar across his right eye, but it really doesn't come across on the toy. Looks more like he was left in the sun too long. Kind of wish they'd just given him his concept art head instead.

This might be enough to replace my customized leader Ironhide figure from dotm. The overall accuracy over gimmicks make this look much nicer and the cannons look good to. Truck mode suffers a lot from the cannons though it seems with how the cannons attach. Still seems that under-carriage will be the same regardless but hopefully not as bad as dotm.

They're probably going under the assumption that toys r us won't be around by the time this guy drops. Or they're just hoping to make more money off of it. Either way it's good news for fans.

TRU's future is pretty uncertain for sure, so they're probably avoiding making claims that may hurt them should the worst come to pass. Plus, it prevents sudden uncertainty that would make any fan's hair stand upright.

I'm sold. Pics show a prototype with a rush-job on the painting (prob to get ready for the exhibition). Finished product will look much better.

Gripes: lack of visible shoulder articulation (not to say there isn't any, just none that I can see with the wheel in the way); bumper-toes (bot kibble in alt mode); jaw movement looks muppet-like

Plusses: real close to cg model, esp the guns; cannons look removable (not sure though); clever use of door panel hinge integrated with cannon in bot mode; metal feet for stability; apparently, there is a grill gimmick that splits the GMC in half in bot mode, but remains a single piece in alt mode; little/no back kibble (alt mode parts fit in well with bot mode).

My poor wallet! :-(

So it looks like his shoulder joints allow outward and backwards motion but not forwards. Wow, that's a piss-poor effort.

No matter how many times I look at that 'face' on Ironhide (or Ratchet, or many of the others), I'm never sure exactly what it is I'm supposed to be seeing. It's like Ironhide has the power to make every photo of his face go out of focus on purpose. I've never been a big fan of the bayverse look, especially with the toys. For all the detail and complexity, they still somehow convey the impression that the designers gave up half way through the design process.
