Voyager Class Recon Ironhide

I am Iron- Wrong song, wait till I finish...Hide NaNaNaNaNaNaNa na na na...Okay I suck at singing big deal, let get this review over with. Btw Is walmart getting expensive, or I'm being cheaper...

The Figure/Toy itself



"Yeah Im ripped"

His head is actually dark brownish in color, its also in balljoint.

No feet articulation but it does have an awesome gear function for transforming, um DER were talking about a bayformer here. But in terms of posing beats any tree stump legged mecha in a standoff

Under all that bulk and metal[plastic] is a...NOTHING!?!




I do have one major complaint about this figure, its that piece that attaches the upper and lower torso together is rather loose, even with a quick mending of glue/nail polish.


I though the first movie Ironhide toy's guns were screwed in the arm, you can take the guns off.

Articulation


OO: Time to own some articulated brick this time




SFX thunk...

Articulation is pretty basic not much to show except he doesnt have a rotating waist, and no feet articulation,its forgivable since it "Transform"

Accessories

"they dont call him weapon specialist for nothing"

He carries 2 near realistic guns, a Mini gun or a SMG and sniper rifle, wow Hasbro way to make a kids toy^^;




"its lookslike crap but atleast it fires pretty far

I kinda find the crossbow/grenade bow launcher kinda g@y.



Knives double as a freaking bayonet





Last but not least a stupid Gun combined mode, way to make that Gattler useless >_>

Action Shots





"Jungle crawling/ Doing a Golgo pose"








Tried doing that awesome roll he did in the first movie, the only thing he did cool, f**king Bays... Its a half @$sed job and its also a spoiler if you haven't seen the first movie

Extras


IronHide: "This IS MY TRUMP CARD!"
Granzon: Damn Heroic plot twist!


"Such Heroic nonsense"

Almost forgot to transfrom this guy into jeep mode, a GMC Topkick






Love the zebra lighting silver paint


GMC, all rights reserved


The only Logo Ironhide has or maybe Im just not looking hard enough



"Pimp my ride, Army style"


"Insert reference: RAMBO!"


Besides that stupid little complaint I have, the Figure/toy is fine by itself, though transforming it is quite a b!7ch freaking recommend this to those on a nostalgia trip or atleast someone who wants to try a new line of stuff, just a warning though, STAY AWAY FROM DELUXE, that is all^^

Nice... Likes how Ironhide rips up 00 Gundam (i really hate 00 Gundam and the pilot...). Seems like there are loose parts as u mentioned, are they common in action figures?

(I dont buy articulated figs so far for this reason >.<)Love this figure though. I was considering Optimus+Jetfire "heavyarms", but my wallet does not allow me...

I'm sure this Ironhide is really dangerous since it destroyed your gundams XD

GunStray said...

>> EXkuro: The waist and the chest/hood are the only loose pieces, the waist the only prob I encountered. It has ratcheted joints, similar to revoltech joints

>> ManGyver: Nothing wrong with robot beating robot^^

chubbybots said...

Woah love the new black background. Did you just get a new camera? The pictures are really good :D

I definitely will have to stay away from this series...your review on this is very tempting!!

chrismandesign said...

as always... ur toys seem to b more freaking violent than the rest... (uhmmm taste like an overload of extreme nonsense violence... yumi LOL) this bad guy looks pretty good with the new paint scheme & that bunch of guns... it remains me Punisher or the hunters of Phantasm...

GunStray said...

>> Chubbybots: Nope same old Cam, the crap yet decent one^^;
Not meant to poison my readers with stuff, but oh well Its nice I have a side effect

>> Chrismandesign: The man who said showing off only gets you killed, oh well this is payback for my childhood memories^^

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Transformer III:
AutoBot vs Celestial Being

GunStray said...

>> Crimsonsmash: Rider punch, epitome of heroic twist, btw thanks^^

>> Dennis/Katsuden: Thank you^^ minus the gun combination,"it sukz"

>> Maftynavue: Imagine how F'd up the explosions would be, even Bay couldnt handle^^

B-Mecha said...

Your Ironhide is so much more violent compare to the one in the movie lol.

Next time try to use white background when your toys are dark colour. I hardly see the shape of Ironhide with dark background...

GunStray said...

>> B-Mecha: Thsi is too make up for all the lost action in ROTF, and I didnt have a choice that time, I forgot to buy white poster paper so I just had to do with black^^ sorry about that.

Lovely figure, but seriously...they should really put more effort in making these things. I have 2 transformer figure myself, and i always wish if they could put a little bit detail into the design...they look like for kids TT__TT

GunStray said...

>> OtakuArtist: There still not bad, though Hasbro...yeeaahh, Takara makes the better TF.
