Transformers Powermaster Ironhide
Series: Transformers Powermaster
I’m not sure when or where this was added to the toy box, but quite recently, I wanted to compare it to one of the current transformers so I dug deep and found the long missing Powermaster Ironhide.
The Powermaster Ironhide is one of those pull-back and it scoots off cars (or hummer in this case). The gimmick of the powermaster line-up (or at least for this one) is that if the weapons are taken off the top of the vehicle, the vehicle does not move forward if pulled back. The weapons need to be inserted into the top of the alt mode to make it go forward. The colours are good, though the fluorescent green windows look odd.
Transformation is way simple, even when compared to most Legend class of today.
The only articulation that Ironhide has is thanks to the transformation joints. The same ‘weapons in pegs to get him moving’ applies to this mode as well, and he doesn’t really have feet, just the back half of the vehicle. He can hold the guns in his hands or in the pegs.
In conclusion, Ironhide was pretty impressive for his day, but seems highly dated compared to what comes out today.
