Fellow Seibertronian bacem has a fun pictorial review for us. He got his hands on what is said to be an unproduced Transformers Crossovers Iron Man figure. Specifically, the one that turns into a cybertronian motorcycle. Below is the review with some excellent images for us all to enjoy.

I got a crossover iron man, particularly the bike mold. According to TFwiki, this mold was cancelled and never saw release, although the fact that I own this means that is inaccurate. I got this in loose, used condition, so i don't have any packaging and instruction sheet. Anyway, let's start the review!

Vehicle mode:

his vehicle mode is a cybertronian tricycle, with a style that resembles tron bike. Red is a dominating color here, with a lot of curvature on the body, giving him a sleek feel to it.

while it seems to lack paints at first glance, further inspection shows that it has some paint details that helps break the sea of red, like the white reactor on the front and silver details on the exhausts.

Transformation:
Transformation on this particular mold is quite simple and straightforward. In fact, by simply inspecting the pictures on this thread, you should be able to figure out how his transformation works.

Robot mode:

this robot mode is iron man, no doubt. We now see more yellow spread across his body, and really balance out the striking red. His proportion is pretty good, and i like how his exhaust now forms a jetpack on his back.

headsculpt is, well, it is an iron man head, that's for sure. This mold has no lightpiping, and relies on painted eyes. Unfortunately, my copy suffers from sloppy paint on his face. Oh well.

iron man has decent amount of articulations. This enable him to strike a fair amount of poses. Unfortunately my posing sense is on par with hasbro stock photographer at best, so this is all i can show you.

And that concludes my review. Do you feel you missed a good mold? Or do you think the existence of this mold makes no difference? Lemme know what you think, leave a comments. ;)

Looking at that head sculpt, it wouldn't be much of a step to turn him into Ultron.

These are being sold on Ebay by one seller who seems to have quite a few. None of them are painted though. Ten have sold while one more is currently listed. They list another one after one sells instead of just having their entire stock of them listed. I bought one a few weeks ago and it should be in any day now. Let's just hope I can at least paint the faceplate better than the person who did the one you have. It shouldn't be too difficult to accomplish.

It would be great if some War Machine prototypes are found and sold too so we can combine them.

neat! How much did you get him for?
And yes, agreed on that war machine. I like how he looks, and he seem to have interesting arm transformation.

Unless bacem knows otherwise I'm pretty sure that's factory paint. Only the yellow paint is messed up, the rest is clean and doesn't show any brush strokes (a person painting a face by hand that badly would leave brush strokes in the silver parts for sure). The markings on the faces of all of these figures tell me they're test molds that were intended to be destroyed later. The messy paint is probably from testing the paint templates and calibrating the machine.

It was $39.99 with $8.00 shipping. A little more than I'd like but I made a few sales on Ebay and had some spare money.

i also believe that it is a factory paint, as the face is the only one being sloppy, and the rest is very smooth and tidy. and that explanation actually make perfect sense, considering the condition and price i got it for (loose, used, 110,000 IDR, or equal to 8.5$ shipped) which means mine is most likely test molds that got smuggled or something along that lines.
