Transformers Takara Tomy Masterpiece Ironhide MP-27 アイアンハイド
All I can remember from my childhood about Ironside in the TV series, was that he was hard as nails and that his toy looked nothing like him. I remember seeing a picture of him in an annual and saying to my dad that they have mislabeled that mess as Ironhide.
Skip forward 30 years and Boom!!! The guys over at Hobby Link Japan sent over the latest offering from Takara and I was literally taken back, it’s magnificent. My first impressions were genuine happiness , it felt solid , robust and looked spot on.
The early stock photos were terrible and having him in hand dispursed any fears I had. The diaper area was a worry but in person it’s looks extremely proportionate.
He comes packed with accessories, something new for Takara and this along with the amazing build quality and engineering, I honestly believe they have taken note from third party companies such as Maketoys as MMC.
Please feel free to check out my review and gallery below and if you like what you see pop over and see the guys n gals at HLJ and tell them I sent you.
