As I stated with the Energon Driller, I LOVE the Cyberverse sub line. The Commanders especially, these are some of the most satisfying figures, and Iron Hide is everything right about this line. Read on and see why.
Remember Generations Iron Hide? Not a lot of people liked him. Then we have the Bayverse, who was pretty rocking, but not much G1 nostalgia. If we made a hybrid, this would be the result. A brilliant red, that chest plate windshield, blocky head of the G1 with the cannons, legs (best part of the movie line versions) and alt mode of the Bayverse style. He has all kinds of ball joints that allow some awesome posing, but keep the clear nail polish close by, those joints will wear The detailing is great, but what really sets him apart from the pack is his stable legs and feet.
See this? I had him standing like that all night, did not falter. The feet have ankles! This allows so much for stances he can hold.
Included the beloved 3 point landing! Also as you can see, the guns to combine to a big ole cannon…One thing this is cool is that the wheels on his arms are clipped on so they can rotate around his arm to allow more positioning. The only thing I would want more for him would be a head swivel and the ever coveted waist swivel.
Vehicle mode is a badass pick up. The cannons can go on either rear or the sides in peg holes. The red is still prominent, but the black just sets this truck off. I love it!
Compared to the Bayverse one, he is still a more beastly truck, and considering the other is a Top Kick, that is saying something.
Robot mode comparison, is night and day. Bayverse has arms like a t-rex compared to Prime. I do like the weapons more though with the Bayverse style.
Get this guy if you can find him. Rumor is they will use this mold for a deluxe model but name and color it like Kup, but I don’t care. I hope it is made, because this body style is just an awesome figure.
