I just thought it was typical Hasbro simplification to save costs as has been the long running trend. I am not surprised the Tamara version of Devastator has better paint applications but I am impressed they added elbows. I may now consider this as my Devastator option if it's significantly cheaper to import than it would be to collect a superior third party version (like at least half the price).

I love how so many people in this topic don't give a damn about Ironhide himself, and are all just worried about how this mold will look on Ratchet. I feel much the same way. Ironhide himself is completely irrelevant to me other than as a way to obtain a Ratchet down the road.

Ah...I see what you're talking about! I don't think that's actually any better, though. It still looks pretty bad.

If I wasn't being clear, I think the iGear mould works best for Ratchet... not sure about Ironhide, probably the Voodoo mould in homage to the original toy.

..you're an easy pass for MP Ironhide too. Seeing as everyone hates it it should be nice and cheap for me to find...

Hard to judge as I don't like Ironhide, him being slightly shit looking is a good fit for his fundamental Ironhideness.

It's how Ratchet will look that matters to me.

Pretty sure they'll be doing a totally unique and different mould for Ratchet, not likely to just be a repaint or anything.

I'm just not into Ironhide's Sunbow model. I prefer the weirdness of the original toy. I'm glad he's not into me either, or that could have been awkward.

Well, colour scheme might could make a difference (there's bound to be some varient with the right head colour, but how the overall scheme meshes on the mould matters as well, those hips might not stand out so much in white), plus the having-its-cake-and-eating-it sled accessory actually makes sense for Marvel Ratchet where his animation model did ride it about.

More pictures of Takara Devastator from Figureking magazine.

They actually make the group look appealing. I do like how the individual guns store in the hollow parts of Devastator's back to make it look not-so-hollow.

Translated interview here.

Answer: totally, the hood rotates as part of the transformation. The figure is smaller than Classics/United Bumblebee so the Renderform Gold Scout head is maybe just a bit too large and you'd probably want to find another alternative. I like the "toy" face personally but prefer the hood like that.

If you want the Renderform head to try, by the way, you can have it. The pic is with just the front of the kit head held on. Removing the Bee head entirely would be tricky since there's a pin and because of how it's been done.

It hugs the lower part of Sideswipe's back without needing anything else, although I guess some people would want it up higher or a larger one.

Apparently Ironhide's vehicle mode places some kibble behind his windscreen that looks like the sticker face on the original toy.
