Of course Scion is owned by Toyota which makes me wonder about more ideas. Trailbreaker as a Tundra for example.

Ugh! I have HATED the Scion since its introduction. Man, I got excited when I saw the pic of the MPV too. That would have been a lot more fitting.

I'm not usually one to post this way, but

GAH!

Be glad we're getting a van in a line where the biggest vehicle so far had been a jeep.

I'm looking forward to him. Thanks to this line, I can finally have a complete "G1" collection of cars.

Scion or no... I don't give a rat's ass. It's friggin' Ironhide, he was my very first Transformer and you can bet your sweet Aunt Mary's ass that I'm getting this one.

/wonder if he'll have that little black square on his roof as on the old alt mode.

While I really can't stand Scions, that robot mode is spot-on.

I know a couple people who will be grabbing that one instantly, what with being able to have a TF of their car and all. I kind of like it.

Oh yea...the cube on wheels...

Well, anyway...it's Ironhide, so that's cool. Although his arms are pretty skimpy and he looks kinda funky without a mouth (that may just be the glare though).

Well, for now, I'm quite disappointed. Maybe the finished (preferably red) version will look better.

Looks good, but not enough for me to buy it. Maybe if they make a Decepticon version that looks cool.

Not the best choice possible - the color scheme is probably not the definitive one and probably the finished product will be better, but i'm pondering about the rumored alt pick up - can ironhide fit in some sort of pick up vehicle mode? TBH, probably another model could be a better choice

Its about time! He could have been as ugly as prowl and I'd still have to have him. Ironhide is back! I like the ides of a remold as Brawn. He was another one where the toy did not match the character.

Look at that head, it's Ironhide for sure. Although I too would have preferred the Dodge Ram pickup truck for his alt mode... That thing just looks tough. But he's getting a Scion... Too bad, so sad.

There's people claiming the head sculpt is looking more like Skids...

Oh yeah! I'd agree with that. I bet this is supposed to be Skids and not Ironhide. (the alt mode certainly fits better if it's Skids...and you're right, that head sculpt certainly has more in common with Skids than it does Ironhide).

Okay...now I'm excited about this Alternator.

Could well be. Now, what does that say about Skids that almost everyone jumps to the conclusion that it's Ironhide regardless of the vehicle?

'Course, we may see both characters from the mould.

Im not big on the altmode but the robot design is sweet.

My question is what other transformers can use this mold. The scoin makes no sence for Ratchet(ambulance), Trail breaker, and Brawn there off road vehicles. perhaps gears would fit the mold but I cant think of a single Decepticon although Motormaster would be funny.

It's funny how half the excitement of seeing a new alternator mould is who the remould can\will be.

Let's join the game

Remould can be either Ratchet or Brawn [trailbreaker was "lost" as BT 09], or Motormaster\Soundwave. I'm guessing [bt story] that wheeljack got angry after losing windcharger to the clutches of the cons, so he rebuilt their security officer.

I was thinking Motormaster would look good as a black Ford Mustang with some silver trim and his purple sword.

But Motormaster won't be silver/black/purple. Following the thoery of the current Stunticons...Motormaster will have to be maroon/black/gold.
