I really like deluxe Ironhide.
The legs have more articulation than the voyager figure, featuring no kibble between the legs so he can stand up straight and working ankles so he can stand straddle if need be.
The kibble is unobtrusive, with a nice panel folding up as armor on the back and it being minimal on the legs. His hood pieces don’t encapsulate his head, and the armor on the chest doesn’t jut out so far.
It’s nice that the head plate isn’t the same color as the head, and the head itself is on a balljoint. He doesn’t have a waist swivel, but has pretty much everything else so far as articulation goes.
Overall, I’d like to see these improvements implemented in a new voyager figure for TF3.
As it is, deluxe Ironhide does have some issues. For instance, his forearms are proportionate but his upper arms have an elbow where the bicep should be.
Oh, and he’s short…
But that just makes him cute.
