Third party toy maker iGear has released the hint mirrored below as to the identity of their PP05 Specialist project. Seems pretty clear the implication is Ironhide. Click here for their post.

I could definitely go for better Classics-styled Ironhide and Ratchet figures. The actual Classics/Henkei versions look pretty good in bot mode but are pretty awful in vehicle mode.

Of course, what I really want are Trailbreaker and Hoist....

Yeah, I'd totally be on board for Trailbreaker/Hoist. Guessing Hasbro has this on their list... after seeing the Legends one.

But I'd definitely get an iGear Ironhide if it is an old school van. The backwards transformation of the Classics one still doesn't feel quite right... not to mention his codpiece issue. I'm still waiting for a perfect Ironhide for my Classics shelf.

Let me guess...a KO'd Towline with a new head? Or just the head to put on to Perceptor, probably the Perceptor head KO'd and painted red.

Maybe not Impactor after all then:

Or maybe this is Impactor?

Not sure but these look too similar. The crest, the angular eyes, the top edges of the "ears" and the brow rougly match.

What will they KO for the body?
And if this is indeed a full and original figure, I may reconsider my opinion on them.

But, I call dibs for the story when i-Gear decides to cancel this due to "Cost and time".

I'm hoping the "Impactor" head isn't the Ironhide sculpt. The helmet covering the nose is all wrong, to me. Looks like an Animated sculpt.

If that's not Impactor I'll be extremely disappointed.

The "Impactor" head doesn't quite match the art on the Ironhide preview. Of course that doesn't necessarily mean anything....

Could they be making something genuinely new? I'm intrigued.

Looking forward to this. Also, let El Duque post the iGear stories, he has the rare ability to post the news and stay professional at the same time - without letting bias get in the way of writing a good article... Dead Metal.

That's why I choose to not post them when I can avoid it. Other than the Kup heads, I'm pretty disdainful of their practices. We're all trying to do a better job of reporting third party/knock off news, while not drowning out the real Hasbro/Takara news and keeping everything unbiased. It's tough when we're all so passionate about collecting.

Thanks for keeping us honest!

That's why I haven't posted a single i-Gear article since the black trailer one, I just hate them too much.

This.


But MP Ramjet is soooooo tempting. The price has made me reject the idea of a pre-order at this time. And the other piece about not being an original idea, but a design taken from another...

Yes, I agree. I think all three of them are but for all the wrong reasons. Maybe, depending on how this Ironhide is made, my attitude will change.

It could easily be for the universe / henkei release. Wouldn't be worth it, but it wouldn't be the first time an iGear product fell into that category.

Yeah, I've got my hopes up for a whole new figure. OR maybe it's a new head, arms, and leg-boots for the G1 figure!!! ROTFL. 8-}

That was my first thought. It'd be pretty lame, even by iGear standards.

Even if this does turn out to be an original piece of engineering (and I seriously doubt it is), I think it's going to take more than one figure to change most people's perceptions.
