Here’s quick note about my BotCon 2010 bagged set auction: It ends in a day!  That’s quicker than Rome was built!

Guess which one of me is the old crusty one!

Here’s Animated Ironhide, Rodimus Prime’s Toys “R” Us exclusive casemate.  There’s not a lot to say about him that wasn’t said about Ratchet.  He has a new head!  His red is very Cel-Animation-Red, if you know what I mean.  Muted, what with the televisions.  He has a lot of paint operations on stuff that is usually superfluous, probably because he didn’t need much paint, what with being entirely red, and so they had to use up their paint budget somewhere.  Like painting his accessories entirely silver, even though they could have been fine left black, especially since they’re made-up weapons for the toy and they could be any color.  He has the black areas under his eyes painted, and the three yellow hashmarks on the sides of his chest.

Oh, and his knees now snap into place in robot mode, which is new.  And very nice.
