Metal Heroes Series: Ironhide

Metal Heroes Series: IronHide

Re-release of the Metal Heroes Series Ironhide by Hasbro from Transformers the movie series, this time with a different color scheme from the regular black color motiff of Ironhide. Like all Metal Heroes Series, the Ironhide variant is a non transforming version. In place of that there is a molded emblem on the underside of the diecast toy to represent the "robot" mode of the toy.

This type of toy is similar in size to the diecast car toys that most of us grew up with. For my tastes this is a boring toy, but for a young child who lacks the dexterity and logic to transform a regular Transformers toy this can do just fine. Because of which also my son likes playing with this a lot, for the same previously mentioned reasons.

This red variant of the originally released black variant differs not only in the paint scheme but in the presence of a large autobot logo on the sides of the toy.

Not really sure what this white stuff is on the front edge. Not sure if this was originally here or something that I rubbed the toy against when I was handling it for the photoshoot.
