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:

Ironhide
Ratchet
Blackout
Starscream

The "Deluxe" which is really like the basic will be:

BumbleBee
Jazz
Bonecrusher (way off scale)
Brawl (another way off scale)
Barricade

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:

Megatron
Prime
Starscream
Blackout
BoneCrusher
Brawl

should all be Master Piece Editions

and

Ratchet
Ironhide

should be Deluxe Alternators

and

BumbleBee
Jazz
Barricade

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 )
