I'm not as excited about this figure as I was before. Believe me, it still probably is the best movie Ironhide we have, but I feel MPM Bee(both Camaro and VW versions) and Barricade are better. I don't have enough income yet to afford any, but if I could get just one, I would definitely get Barricade :x

I'm just very happy with SS Ironhide, especially after I painted all the details in. The only thing the MPM version did significantly better than the SS version is the front bumper. But after painted it in gun metal, it isn't so jarringly noticeable anymore. Just can't justify spending 3X the money for the MPM.

Hello Seibertronians,

While I MUCH prefer G1-faithful toys (Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream), I also have Bayverse-faithful favourites (Bumblebee, Barricade). And now, my next favourite Bayverse-faithful in line, the Transformers MPM-06 Movie Masterpiece Ironhide is out, and I found the Youtube review below really good for a starter.



Overall it's a beautiful Masterpiece, loyal to the movie - and Ironhide remains one of my favourite movie characters. As you can see from the video, PrimevsPrime points out the one engineering "flaw" (how big this flaw is, depends on the collector) which is the chest/arms articulation. That sours it a little bit for me, but I'm almost willing to overlook it because Ironhide is so cool.

The only setback I have is that I've got limited budget for either the Transformers MPM-06 Movie Masterpiece Ironhide or the superbly engineered Unique Toys UT-01 Peru Kill aka Lockdown.

What do you think?

Haha, that too but that doesn't bother me as much as the chest/arm articulation...

The big flat panels on the arms are unfortunate, but Movie Ironhide is one of my favorite characters/figures, so he's a buy.

True, they could've done what they did with Masterpiece MPM-4 Optimus Prime like this:

I think Takara Tomy / Hasbro should just hire the Unique Toys engineers...!

Honestly, their own are fully capable. I just think they phoned this one in, maybe over-relied on DOTM Leader Ironhide as a reference and in all the wrong ways.

Most likely they didn't think he was popular enough to already be such an expensive figure so they cut a few corners in the engineering to save some money on the back end. They were probably right.

IMO they cut corners to the point of this being a waste of their investment.

Nah I think their engineers dropped everything to work on the $450 MP-44 Optimus Prime... :ic$:

You know, I'm not even sure if the same people that do MPM are the same that do MP. :-? There's a lot of figures at that level being worked on at the same time so it feels like there'd be two teams. Either way, I'm pretty sure Ironhide was in the works before Prime was as his release schedule was thrown all out of whack by MPM VW Bee.

So.....not really hearing good things about this guy with folks starting to get him in hand.


I think he is being moved to my "wait till next years black Friday sales" list.

I wasn't. 8-} I know there's people out there that are certainly going to think MP-44 pulled resources away from other MPs. There are examples of that happening in lines with waves and series, but those things don't exist in MP. I really do think it's the character itself that influences how much effort they put into it these days.
