Hey there, guys and fellow readers from the world over! Welcome once again to another blog-post from the uber blogger, Adam aka WSX. today is another short post and random thoughts for another spectacular Transformers Voyager mould which has not been getting the much wanted attention it deserves from the Transformers community. 


As taken from and credited to the original source, of China, several ENTICING pictures surfaced some days ago, somehow brought to  my attention that a  much more aesthetically pleasing looking Revenge of the Fallen Ironhide had been remade to yet flood the saturated live action movie toys market. It was made from the 2009 voyager Recon Ironhide mold, only this time the toy makers decided to use a much more decadent "Allspark Power" blue plastic similar to his "Offroad" incarnation. 


"Ironhide is the Autobots' resident weapons specialist and Optimus Prime's old friend. He is old because he is hard. He's probably had enough replacement parts to build a small army, but Ironhide doggedly refuses to roll over and die for anyone. He'll fight to the bitter end and take down more than his fair share of Decepticons in the process. Ironhide doesn't always see optic to optic with Prime, despite their friendship. He's perhaps the more practical of the two, and more a little trigger happy, so he can be more willing to push the Autobot code to the limit if he thinks it will get the job done faster. He has more weapons than a smaller third-world country, and he may or may not have blown up a planet with said weapons. His various weapons systems range from machine guns to Gatling missile launchers. He has also gave other Autobots weapon systems."


TFClub has posted an interesting new auction on Chinese auction site Taobao - for what appears to be a redeco of the Revenge of the Fallen Recon Ironhide. This version of the toy is a blue version of the heavily armed Ironhide released at the beginning of the year as a part of the first assortment of NEST Global Alliance Voyagers, with mud splatter effects above the wheel arches for additional details. It is in effect a combination of Ironhide's Recon mold and his "Offroad Ironhide" deco from the first movie line - an interesting choice that really lends itself to the mold and in this editor's opinion looks really dynamic, although fans wanting a red Movie Ironhide look like they might be denied yet again.

The new and "sexier" looking-loose term! Ironhide was found out by the super site for ALL important Transformers news and events, and not to mention, one of my favorite haunts that is, had some board members' tongues wagging and purring at its sheer coolness in terms of what seems to be a more detailed "mud" or off-road speckle effects on the side of Irohnide's GM Topkick 4x4 Monster Truck, makes it look like he's been on the muddy trail hunting and sniffing out those pesky Decepticons and move in for the final blow!  Add to the nicer and more conceited effort of silver and gold pain application in robot mode and you got a great package in an awesome and really under-appreciated Voyager mould. 
Add a final bad-ass touch of having a huge arsenal of weaponry, and he's as good as bought!


Not alot of pictures of this awesome remade Ironhide circulating around at the moment. For many of us collectors,  the frustrating thing is the unknown time of its imminent release on the toy aisles, yet alone  if this will be yet another one of those Toys'r'Us or Walmart/ Target exclusives. I guess only  (and a whole lot of patience) and time will tell. I am not sure if this will be bought by me, as currently I have a 'quota" for this year. I might give myself an excuse for a good Christmas or New Year 2011 present down the road. LOL! Stay tuned!
