Do yourself a favor and watch this review. I've been waiting for some side-by-side comparisons with the HA Autobots- he looks AWESOME with Bee and Jazz! And OMG, I didn't know the cannons were activated in alt mode like that, totally cool. The leg dagger is pure win, the little pistol somewhat less so.

I wish the feet were more accurate, such as having heels fold out of the rear of the foot instad of just a chunk of truck back there. And I'm pretty sure I'll be making his arm and back kibble removeable. And putting some black or silver/gray on some of that blue.

For me, it looks like the pluses far outway the minuses, an absolute must-buy. And the reviewer is hilarious, esp. his cat. Heh.

Ok optibotimus, you win, you've convinced me. I'm gonna pick him up over the voyager. Sad I didn't get to see the other HA figures in you group shot.

Well, now that we seem to be getting all of the normal figures in Leader class or HA scale, I am thinking about picking them all up nowand making a new shelf for all of them. So to answer your question, just the rest of the HA autobots in robot form will do. I'm guessing that Sideswipe, Mudflap, and Skids look just as good with Ironhide, OP, 'Bee, and Jazz but a group shot of all of them would be epic. Looks like I'm going to be dropping some more money. lol

Ok so the figure looks great. If its so in scale with the human alliance line then why didnt they just make a human alliance ironhide with lennox in the first place????????????? :grin:

They might've been planning to do that...The Human Alliance boxes have WAY too much space for the cars on their own. They must have them at that size for a reason! (You never know, they may be planning to do a HA Ratchet, which I seriously want, seeing as he is slightly smaller than Ironhide!)

Anyway, they review was great! Peaugh may have some competition! Haha loved how it turned into 'CSI: Cat Scene Investigation' (But just to be picky, I know for a fact that the the Leader Prime is the same scale as Voyager Ironhide and Deluxe Bumblebee, etc)

But yep; that's another on my list!

I'm much less impressed after the review. Excessive kibble in both modes (especially alt mode,) blue legs are a turn off, and so are the feet. Transformation is also lacking (IMO) for a figure of that price point. About the only things left I'm really impressed with is it scales decently with the larger figures and the knife is pretty sweet. I can see the gimmicks being a plus to some, especially kids, but they generally don't factor in too much with my decision to buy a figure as I don't really get much "play value" out of a figure beyond transforming it...I actually find the gimmicks a detriment to the figure much of the time. Anyhow, the figure went from one of the few of interest in the line to a fairly weak maybe.

Ironhide is looking good so far aside from the fact that his arm cannon's are a bit lacking. As for the blue legs, aint nothing a lil bit of glossy black modeling paint can't fix. Too bad we never got a leader class Bonecrusher. :BOOM: :evil: :BOOM: :evil: :BOOM:



:CON:

Optibotimus's scale knowledge is off. Leader IH is NOT in scale with Leader Prime in any way. He is in scale with HA though.

I'm really unimpressed with this but I may pick him up if I see him on sale.

Ironhide looks great; I'm getting this! I might also get the Takara version too if it turns out to be a really good paint job. And I agree we need a leader Bonecrusher as well as a leader Blackout, or better yet, a supreme Blackout! Probably won't happen but I can dream...

Actually, my knowledge isn't as off as you might think it is...in interviews Optimus Prime is said to be, (according to ILM designers) roughly 32 feet tall. Ironhide is roughly 22-25 feet tall. When you scale it down to inches...10 inches that Optimus is compared to 9 1/2 inches that Ironhide is, really isn't too bad.

This is the best scale guide i could find:

So yes, It's a little off but as far as the toys go I think this is the closest we will get with the correct Ironhide build. The voyager's from the first movie are poor designs IMO, and the new voyager is too skinny. This guy is stocky, excellent articulation(minus the waist), and has pretty cool gimmicks. This is the winner for me, hands down.

Personally I think Peaugh is overrated. I was going to skip this guy, but you sold me on it. The only thing that really bothers me is the arm kibble.

You're welcome! I only mentioned because I've been following his reviews for some time and this is actually the first review of yours I've seen, so very entertaining! :D

I'm still not interested in this one.

I give you credit for making the backpack kibble look better, because the first pictures made it look awful, but it's still not the best look.

The arm kibble isn't nearly as bad as I thought it was, so that's a plus.

The legs really bother me. Really bother me. He's not squat enough, much like the new Voyager, but at least the new Voyager is much more in scale than this guy.

Plus the simplistic transformation. Geez. I expect some kind of a challenge out of my Leader Classes.

They don't all have to be Optimus difficult, but they need to be more like Starscream. Starscream wasn't complicated either, but he was very fiddly. He had enough steps and enough pieces to make it feel worthy. Ironhide is just giant chunks of truck moving around.

I'm just not impressed with this guy.

Voyager, if anything Ironhide out of DOTM.

EDIT: Okay, I just have to know one thing. +Jetfire+, who is that in your sig? That gif of her just makes her mesmerizing. It was hard to type without staring at her.
