This is the one we've all been waiting for, folks! Seibertron.com member Dannshinigami informed us that TonTon Reviews of YouTube has finally published their video review of Transformers: SIEGE Deluxe Class Ironhide! By now, you probably know what to expect from TonTon's videos of these upcoming figures. We're treated to a step by step conversion of Ironhide from Cybertronian armored truck to robot and back again, as well as an overview of sculpting and paint detailing on the figure, accessory demonstration, basic articulation in robot mode, and of course size comparisons in both vehicle and robot modes. Indeed, the size comparison is exciting as it shows that, despite being a Deluxe Class figure, SIEGE Ironhide is TALL in robot mode. He stands head and shoulders above SIEGE Deluxe Prowl and is just under a head shorter than Studio Series 14 Voyager Ironhide. To top it off, TonTon also shows off one possible configuration for combining Deluxe Weaponizer Sixgun with Ironhide. Enjoy the video below!



Is this the Classics/Generations G1 Ironhide figure you've been waiting for? How well are Hasbro and Takara Tomy doing with the scaling in the War for Cybertron: SIEGE line so far? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

For sure, i dont see why not


Sentinel feels like a character who deserves his own mold, you know?

Oh you know me, i think all characters should get their own mold and their own transformation. But in terms of redecos, i didnt find Sentinel too bad. He has his own mold in the movie verse, and in IDW he wasnt that big a presence so i think its fair. Plus the IDW comics made him look like his TR toy when he returned so he is more accurate to his comic look than Astrotrain is.

Something I bought at Hobbytown; beyond that I don't remember.

Yeah, I really like TR Sentinel (thanks by the way Will!), he's a really fun toy and I like the way he looks. Personally I'd rather we got a better Astrotrain that turned into a proper steam locomotive.

Ironhide makes me excited for Ratchet as well. Guess its time to think about retiring the Botcon 06 guys.

But how did he do that? :-? I guess with friction.

With those four 5 mm ports behind his head I'm sure I can make a four-armed Transformers :x

Where did that come from lunatic?

Looking at Ironhide, give him a generic head and he'd look like good army builder fodder, sort of like what I wanted to do with Quake back in TR :-?

(I already told in another thread that) I really badly want a four-armed Transformer :BANG_HEAD:
Nope, SIEGE Shocky is not doing it for me.
This version here a bit more than the official one but still not really. Image

TR Deluxe Repugnus is the closest I got so far of what I'd like to have.

I'm fine with the hollow parts of Ironhide, if it was to increase his apparent bulk and stature as a Deluxe Class figure, relative to the likes of Sideswipe, Prowl, etc. It's not anything we haven't seen before, either. The hollowness of the forearms is at least on the "bottom" and not on the "insides" like on many other figures. The hollowness in the chest makes perfect sense, as that's where the head goes in vehicle mode, and it looks fine in robot mode, especially with the nice silver painted detailing in the cockpit. The hollow parts on the back aren't nearly as bad as some early photos made them out to be. There can only be so many Voyager slots in a year, and swapping out someone for Ironhide so that he could have some more mass to fill in some trivial gaps would mean pushing other characters that NEED that Voyager slot to be in scale further out into 2020 or 2021. Being a large Deluxe works for Ironhide, and he seems to scale just right, being a little shorter than Optimus Prime, but more than a head taller than the Deluxe Autobot cars. I can't wait to see how the Walgreens exclusive Ratchet turns out. I hope his helmet is white with a dark gray crest, like the cartoon model. That's all I ask, Hasbro!

I'm hoping the Ratchet figure comes with three alternate heads (it'll never happen, but I can dream :lol: ) that represent his cartoon, comic, and the red crest that has been associated with Ratchet more recently. More than likely though, it'll be the gray crest

Aside from the attempt with transmetal 2 in beast wars, have we ever had a four armed tf?

I'm just happy you can fold Ironhide's head down to get an approximation G1 derp mode! :lol:

I know. I'm the only one. Still happy about it.


@Dannshinigami - Flight mode is cool! 8-) ;)^
