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!

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.

I hope those cannons detach. Otherwise he now looks pretty okay in my book, we'll
have to wait and see.

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.

Hopefully those absolutely miniscule hip joints will be able to support his frickin tree trucks called legs

It looks like on the close up shots of his arms that those door panels on his forearms have disappeared. Have they been photo-shopped out? Or am I missing something?

Looks like it, you can see part of the door at the back of his arm near his elbow, but the part that should be at his hand is missing, probably to make it easier to see the hand.

His shoulders being on his back is very hard for me to overlook, it's a terrible place for his arms to stick out of. I'm fine with them being angled backwards, but this is too far. But I guess he doesn't need to do much more than point his big guns so maybe it isn't that bad. Really need to mull this one over.

Hard to say by pictures looks like canons may be detachable in truck mode

I wanted to wait to comment until we got a better Ironhide than that in the display images, and this is so good. I am thrilled for this, and a dream of having the 2007 movie cast in MP form is coming true!! It's also nice to see they are planning to go farther with the MPM line.

Also showed my sister the story, as she loves movie Ironhide over most everything else, even if she isn't really a TF fan. She said she wants one too. Thank goodness this is going up on HTS, makes it much more likely I won't need to place a TFsource pre-order

This thing looks so terrible, for a 'masterpiece' to have so limited arm articulation it may as well not be there is an honest crime :HEADHURTS:

I've looked at this photo so many times in the past day. After feeling very disappointed with the first few photos with the mistransformation I'm so relieved the figure actually looks great when done properly. Movie Ironhide is one of my all time fave Transformer designs ever (ironic since G1 Ironhide is one of my least, he's so boring and bricky) and while most of his toys have been good there's often been something that annoys me about them (the Voyagers often have fiddly chest bits, the Leader is far too big, the Deluxe too small). Ok the price is the issue with this one being a Masterpiece so it's going on my list of TFs I will buy if I ever start getting some proper money like winning the lottery or something. :P I wonder who's next? If autobot then probably Ratchet (Jazz another possibility but I would be surprised if he comes before Ratchet), if Decepticon... hm... Not sure...Megatron?
