European Exclusive Ironfist

In my ongoing and seemingly endless European G1 quest Ironfist was a name that was eventually going to come up. Thrust into the limelight by both The Last Stand of the Wreckers and the Botcon 2011 attendee exclusive figure, Ironfist was one tough mother to find at a reasonable price. However I came upon a MIB sample with stickers unapplied recently and feel like I paid a decent price for him; especially after receiving him I discovered the figure had never been removed from the box! After a quick consultation with Flywheels I decided not to sticker the little guy and thus left him in all his naked glory. With this purchase I have now completed all of the Lightformers and Trakkons (aka small figures with huge mounted weapons that obscure their faces).

Ironfist with his weapons platform, unnecessarily large.



Alongside his Animated Counterpart: Fisitron


Is it any coincidence that both Ironfist and Swindle are weapons experts and tan military road vehicles? Seems a little too convenient to be pure chance. Perhaps Ironfist is Swindle's nemesis!

  1. Great figure. Glad you were finally able to grab one for a decent price.

  2. Where did Fisitron come from?

    1. He was the 2011 Botcon attendee exclusive. So if you attended the convention you got one for free. He's a repaint of the Animated Cybertronian Ratchet/Ironhide mold with a new head.

    2. Or you could say he's a repaint of Autotrooper. I still need to pick up Fisitron. Wonder if his prices have come down?
