I'm sure a lot of you guys have seen the pics on TFW2005 by now, taken by a moderator over there who has movie Ironhide in hand.
Ironhide's alt form is a GMC Topkick which is near the equivalent of a Ford F650 - a very big truck in other words.
This picture taken next to his True-Alternators (custom stickers on Mirage), shows why I can't buy these figures. Ironhide is pretty nice, but if he were the correct scale for Alts (1:24) he'd be huge next to a Mustang or a GT.
What also sucks is that if they ever make a Deluxe Alternator for movie Ironhide, he'd close in on the scale of my Prime and Starscream (MPEs) and make them look further offscale - especially Starscream.
Anyway, Ironhide will be Voyager class. There are 4 that we know of:
The "Deluxe" which is really like the basic will be:
Bonecrusher (way off scale)
Brawl (another way off scale)
Leaders will of course be Optimus Prime and Megatron (like you couldn't guess)
BoneCrusher and Brawl would be better suited to being Voyager class, and I'm sure they'll be re-issued.
The crap-of-the-matter is:
should all be Master Piece Editions
should be Deluxe Alternators
should be regular Alternators
Scorponok and Frenzy can work just fine as very detailed MiniCon accessories.
That's what it will take to get me to buy anything (besides the stock I took out in Hasbro many months ago :D )
Here's a gallery of what is thought to be the final version of $20 Movie Prime next to the test shot version. I am leaning towards buying this guy.
My Titanium 6" Cheetor and Fallen came in the mail yesterday, along with the free Autobot and Decepticon magnets. The magnets are just 2-dimensional images, like fridge magnets (I was hoping for sculpted rubber like a lot of nicer magnets) but what they lack in depth they make up for in size, probably 4" each, I was surprised by how big these magnets are. The only thing that doesn't work for me is the 7-4-07 date printed at the bottom, but it's not too bad. Now my fridge is an Autobot and my foot locker is a Decepticon (no way in hell I'd put these on a car, they'd be stolen in 5 seconds).
Cheetor is pretty simple, your standard "stand up, you're a robot!" catbot, but the lines are elegant and reminiscent of his BM show look. The paint is top notch. The articulation could be better, and I was expecting a little more transformation. The swords are cool. In bot mode, his beast tail doesn't disappear or come off which sucks, and his head is set too low. But I still think this is a pretty decent piece.
Fallen is very cool in many ways, bot mode is bulky and tough looking, the hellfire paint elements are nifty, and the sculpted scratches are a good touch. Transformation is decent. Alt mode is a bit disappointing because the turret isn't close enough to the body and the rear halves of the treads are on panels that have the floppiest miserable hinges.
Yeah sure, that'd be awesome, thanks! :cool:

Dude this is funny! The best of Optimus Prime (be sure to watch the end credits, too)
"SUPA MODE!!!" and then the Power Rangers music starts playing, awesome! Stupid fatimus prime. I was a little worried with Fatimus started kicking arse, but luckily 20th Prime took care of that.
I picked up the Target exclusive 5-pack of the mini-figures tonight. I am not a big TF collector but I thought these looked pretty cool and for $10 it was a good buy.
Anyone else picked this set up?
$10 is a pretty good price for those TF's especially since each one individually would've been 3 something.
i only have the soundwave from that set and that was a regrettable purchase so i'm not really interested in the set.
What five pack? Did I miss something?

Megatron was the Batmobile, LOL.
