Any way to compare him to the movie 1 voyager? I'm sure he's shorter, just want to see it.


No idea if they even have that figure. Odd one to bring up after dissing the Studio Prime when the 2007 Voyager, while a decent action figure at the time, is the absolute worst for accuracy and truck kibble and chest fakery and such.


I'm talking about comparing movie 1 Ironhide to SS Ironhide, I think you mistook this for me asking to compare the OP's from those lines.


Ah yes. Sorry it was cos you mentioned Optimus.
Yeah I imagine Studio Ironhide be shorter but stockier than the 2007 voyager cos that was quite tall and lanky in comparison but yeah i'm sure someone will have pics soon enough. :)

Just for funsies. Studio Prime trying on the sun visors of other figures.


RotF Prime's sun visors. Far too large but can lay on the top at an angle

Using Revenge's visors (chromed versions of Battle Blades Prime) don't really go well since their ball joint isn't on a hinge and so get in the way and have to be laid flat. The size is good but positioning ain't so doable.

So yeah still trying to find some good alternatives. Of course due to the nature of transformation they couldn't become the truck's real sun visors (it has those in truck mode anyways).


Brawl and Megatron are available again at TF Express for those in the UK. £29.99 each plus about £5 for delivery.

You know, I don't think it's been mentioned yet as to which other toy's transformation scheme this new Studio Series Ironhide toy might use, since about half the toys in this line have all lifted their transformation schemes from other preexisting toys (or so I'm told).

It's been suggested it may use elements of the Deluxe DotM figure with the way a pair of wheels under the feet but hard to say what else it does at moment.

Postby Va'al » Fri Jun 15, 2018 9:06 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
In this week's update from the Leaked from Cybertron series of short clips, we have John 'Hasbro' Warden presenting the first Leader class toy from the first wave of Transformers: Studio Series figures: leader of the Dinobots, Grimlock!

The clip is the usual format, and can be seen embedded below for your viewing pleasure, and includes a look at the VSP - vendor sampling pilot - for the figure, used to test transformation (conversion) and articulation, with funky colours, plus the painted factory sample. Check it out!

I wasn't gonna watch it cos like many Studio folk i already got Grimlock a while ago but I watched anyways and it was fine for a brief 1 minute video. That VSP one seems like a funky G2 toy but obviously with massive amounts of detail and articulation.

Nice review! Although, I don't think Ironhide is supposed to have eyes that are THAT asymmetrical. If anything, the right eye is supposed to look smaller or a bit damaged with a scar across it. That huge splotch of blue paint should be on the left eye instead if they wanted to highlight that one eye is injured. Either they got their directions reversed or it's just one-off paint error.

LOoks like a fun figure. Though in vehicle mode does make Prime look small so ok now I think maybe Prime could have been a bit bigger (but I still love it for detail, posability and such). :P
I did ask if the torso all tabbed in nice and secure (since I have had issues with all previous voyager Ironhide figures) and he says it does so that's cool. It's really just that darn bumper letting it down but overall I'm very keen to add that figure to my Studio collection. :)

Taking me a lil time off internet for a few days cos I ain't coping so well with some things. Ironhide's what kept me checking internet stuffs today but I now seen the review and got the info I was after it's time for a break. Have a great weekend, peoples. :)

Before i go here's a lovely quality photo of the figrue with the chest transformed properly (something that looked off in the photos from the past few days). Looks way better. :) Credit again to PrimeVsPrime

Holy cow, he dwarfs SS Prime in vehicle mode, lol.

He looks good, and im glad they compared him to DotM Ironhide at least so I can gauge the size (smaller, which means WAY smaller than the movie 1 voyager I already have and will probably scale terribly with RotF leaders and BB Bumblebee :( ). Probably would still look good with BB OP, at least.

Well, if you want an Ironhide that scales with the ROTF Leaders, the movie 1 voyager Ironhide is your best bet by robot mode scale (at least, judging by that chart). Going by vehicle mode scale... the DOTM Leader is 1/29 scale while the Movie 1 Voyager is 1/36 scale, and ROTF Optimus is 1/31 scale. So the DOTM Leader is closer in vehicle-mode scale, but seems to be too huge in robot mode.

Studio Series Ironhide is meant to scale with the other Studio Series toys in robot mode, so it's only natural he'd be dwarfed by the ROTF Leaders.

For those feeling like SS Optimus is a smidge too small, there are a couple options. Battle Blades Optimus - he's fiddly and complex to transform, but being barely a head taller than SS Optimus he would still size decently with the others in the line. DOTM Mechtech Voyager Optimus is the other. He's between SS Optimus and BB Optimus in size, and would seem to be less fiddly (don't own him myself. I don't own BB Optimus either but I do own his big cousin, so I have a pretty good idea what he's like), though he does have somewhat stylized robot mode proportions, the DOTM chest, and those giant tanks.

Yeah, I pretty much knew this would be the case (they're ALL smaller, of course this one is too), was just having a silly hope I would have a better reason to pick this up.

Like you said, the DotM leader is just too tall in robot mode, and while I like my movie 1 voyager I was hoping this would be so definitive that I would just HAVE to pick it up. This looks good, but if it doesn't scale with RotF leader Prime, I just don't need it, unfortunately.

Still have hope for the line (picked up several already since they were massive improvements over other toys or new characters), just a minor letdown for me.

That's my feeling too. BB Optimus Prime (Movie Advanced "Revenge" version) is my Prime for my new Studio Series collection. The actual Studio Series Optimus Prime is just too small and has too many flaws for me in terms of sculpt, detailing, and even color choices.

That SS Ironhide is a MUST BUY. It will definitely replace my '07 one in my Movie display. I got rid of all my deluxe Ratchets too so I'll have to get the SS Ratchet to go with it I guess.

My only gripe is that ridiculous bumper. It definitely need hinges to cut off the "smile". I'll either mod it myself or some Shapeway dude will do it.

Speaking of improvements, I so want Studio Series ROTF Megatron for that reason. I understand why they went for his ROTF body first. His Movie 1 toys... The Leader was kibbly but passable, same for the Voyager aside from the stupid ice bits. But ROTF... The Voyager was off in a number of ways, and then the Leader-class... Dear gods that arm. I still want him for scale purposes with ROTF Optimus, but holy crap that right arm is a mess.

I think he looks better than the 2007 and DOTM voyagers. The leader looked good, but his legs were a bit too lanky. This looks near perfect, but I don't think any Ironhide could beat the HFTD 2010 Deluxe. His truck mode captures better proportions compared to the 2007 voyager and his robot mode is STUNNING. Sorry Studio Series that an almost 10 year old toy beat you. I think Ratchet, Bumblebee and Jazz are good for this scale, but Optimus and Ironhide don't compare to their 2010 voyagers and Deluxes.

Well, I don't know much of anything about you.
But that statement confirmed that you sure as heck aren't someone who sells G1 accessories on eBay :P ;)

That jab aside, I do think paying $20 for a gun is quite alright... if it's a really big one or a fancy/3P upgrade. Like one of the Cubex buster guns (normally sold as a set that costs $40, so..) for ROTF Leader Prime, or a discount on the replacement for ROTF Leader Megatron's aformentioned mess of a right arm.

I may be rambling to distract myself from things.. :(

Has anyone done a step-by-step transformation photoshoot of Studio Series Megs yet? I looked through the whole of this thread and don't think I saw one here.

Got these two the other day. They're fantastic!
I'm returning them #-o

Jazz is awesome in both modes. Posable, detailed, fun but not complicated to transform, and excites me for what they could achieve with an MPM.

Lockdown, almost gets the same praise. His design is of one of those kibble'less Movieformers, so his added bulk and kibble makes him feel a little inaccurate. However, he's miles ahead of the AOE mold, and has some incredible sculpted details in bot mode. He looks fantastic. Transformation is a bit of a pain though. Fitting his hood to his shoulders isn't easy.

So why am I returning both? Jazz, for the life of me, I cannot get one side of the car mode to panel together flush. It's incredibly frustrating and I want one that actually fits together. Lockdown does the same sort of thing (not quite as bad) but then, broke while I was working on these pics! The bullet thingies on his shoulders, one of them snapped off while transforming him. To be fair, after examining it I could quite simply glue it back into place without hurting anything on the figure, but since his car mode doesn't fit together I'm also going for a new one like with Jazz.

It's really unfortunate. These are both amazing figures, but I got two lemons. I am absolutely getting a new pair and hoping for better results. These two are the most impressive to date, and Jazz might be my favorite SS so far! Still recommended!

He's even tougher than the leader simply because all that level of complexity is brought down to a voyager scale. Its freaken mental. Also, now that i finally own BB Prime I was surprised to find out that it is a completely different mold than the leader. Sure there are a few similarities but it was different enough to feel like a totally different toy, even moreso than the MPM we got last year.

Motto: "It's unnerving and insulting when people in a toy-based fandom, whatever it is, make statements to the effect that general consumers and fans of lesser financial means should be deprived entirely of the ability to partake of the primary market."
Weapon: Galaxial Rocket Launcher
Holy crap, Seibertron actually loaded all the images in Shajaki's post instead of half of them being left as the "Image" placeholder text.

Also, Shajaki... Considering that you broke Lockdown after removing him from the box, you might have a hard time returning him.
Looking for:
ROTF Leader Megatron right arm
Nemesis Breaker's Arms
ROTF Jetfire Weapons
Cybertron Safeguard (Vector Prime's Mini-Con)
PotP Starscream gun
Vector Prime's Cyber Key
