The shots were taken at the private press event during the Hong Kong Toys and Games Fair 2018, as first reported here, and include the figure in robot and vehicle mode, plus comparisons with the Bumblebee Movie Masterpiece toy, and close-ups from a number of angles in both robot and vehicle modes. You can compare the photos below with the official images we received from Hasbro here!

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.
to me he looks like a robot pig wearing a helmet winking

If you remove the last three sentences, I would have mistaken you for talking about...whatever these are supposed to be.

But DOTM Leader Class Ironhide looks like absolute trash.

I find DOTM Leader Ironhide frustrating, and I looked forward to him the most at the time. The weapons are too puny, the hip's ratchet joints aren't like other ratchet joints on Leader figures, the feet make it hard to stand on, and most copies have a joint at the neck; it's glued in place.

I hate the cannons to stay clearly visible on the arms, specially in the alt mode: the leader class ROTF could retract them in the forearms and eject even in the alt mode.
ROTF toy line was the best ever for Movie series... maybe too difficult for kids to convert but they were all masterpieces.

Yeah, no. His colors are way off, too much ugly factory blue, the weapons are small and look like they were molded in Minecraft, he's far too long proportionally making him look way thinner than his onscreen counterpart...basically everything everyone else complained about above. This looks far more screen accurate, it's not even comparable.

Nah, I'm not gonna dump $100 on a design I'm not even that crazy about. I'm just saying this is screen accurate and DOTM Leader Ironhide is a miserable piece of work.

I can't understand the opinion that the leader is better. It's not. I'm a huge fan of Ironhide and although the leader is a great scale in truck and bot mode that's where the superiority stops. The arm canons are terrible that are saved by a third party company. The blue on him is inaccurate as is the mouth plate that never appeared in the movies. The leader simply has many limitations whereas this does not.
I will buy the Hasbro and takara version because I think takara will fill in some smaller paint details like his chin cylinders being black iirc.
For everyone wondering what Ironhide's head is based on it's based on a bull face wearing a cowboy hat.

He looks better with the FWI-2 3rd party cannons you could get, but that doesn't fix all his other problems, or those blue legs. He shouldn't be as tall as OP and Megatron.
This looks like a much more screen-accurate release, and it's in-scale with RotF Leader OP and the MPM OP. We don't have a price-point yet, but Leader Ironhide is going for $80 used on Ebay at this point anyway (WITHOUT the 3rd part stuff), I doubt it will be THAT expensive.

The release date given is July 1st, 2018. This does fit with the Fall release given by Hasbro since Hasbro usually refers to when we would see a product on the shelves. Robot Kingdom has the toy at $109, but as the title of this article states, this clues us in more on the price point, and is not necessarily the price the toy will be on shelves in America.
This is the same price MPM Optimus Prime goes for on the same site, meaning that MPM Ironhide would probably be sold at the same $100 price Optimus Prime was at Toysrus. Unlike previous MPM releases, Ironhide has not been said to be retailer exclusive and will also be available on Hasbro Toy Shop.
