Fellow Seibertronian Mr Black has sent us word that Hasbro has released the official stock photo of MPM 06 Movie Masterpiece Ironhide. This was posted on the official Transformers Facebook page along with the words "Ironhide is here and this crafty vet is ready for action". This figure was revealed at the Hong Kong Toy Fair earlier today where he was shown next to other MPM figures, such as prime and Bumblebee. Him being in between the two when it comes to height suggests that his price may be in between the two as well (around the $90 mark). We do not have a release date for this toy.

We have included a render and screenshot of Ironhide's CG model for you to compare with this toy. Do you find his proportions fine? And is that indeed fake vehicle kibble in robot mode when it comes to the grill? This would not be the first time for Ironhide since the Dark of the Moon leader class figure also had that. Are you ok with this type of kibble on a Masterpiece figure? Let us know in the discussion!

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.

Well, that isn't as exciting as I had hoped. Time will tell, I suppose.

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.

steals_your_goats wrote:I really hope this is mistransformed. Ironhide was my favorite character from the live action series and this just doesn't look good. 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.

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.

Maybe ‘Masterpiece Ironhide’ products are cursed. :P

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.

*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:

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!

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.[/quote]

I will say the official images look better but I'm still not sold.

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.
