Ironhide wants to know if you’re feelin’ lucky, punk

Ironhide (1)

Imagine being inside a Transformer. And I don’t mean that in a horrific mechanophiliac way. I mean, with all the humans that they encounter, sooner or later, an Autobot or a Decepticon will transform and wonder why they’re leaked a crimson coolant. I’m pretty certain that such an “accident” has happened several times in Transformers history.

I mean, just look at Ironhide. Somebody that grumpy, obviously has secrets to hide. What aren’t you telling us Ironhide? What really happened to those damn kids from Transformers: Armada, huh? THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!

An Autobots weapon specialist and Optimus Prime’s oldest 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 is…pretty damn massive. The Prime 1 Studio of the Autobot specialist clocks in at a height of 39cm without his base, and weighs quite a bit I’d imagine. There’s also some electronics hidden inside him, with LEDs on the head, chest and cannons. And you might want to roll out when you hear how much he’ll cost: $1599.

So possibly not the best statue to put in a garden then, to scare the next-door neighbour’s cat away with. Or is it?
