Leader Class Ironhide (Head Problem).

Good Day Folks!

My IronHide's Head won't move left/right/up/down. Looks like it's glued in place! Is it just mine? I've seen some reviews on youtube where the head moves

Re: Leader Class Ironhide (Head Problem).

We haven't even had a leader ironhide released at retail yet so I couldn't tell ya.

You could try a good twist of the wrist on the head and see if it moves....or if it has the screw in the back of the head you try loosing it a bit.

Re: Leader Class Ironhide (Head Problem).

I picked up a Leader Ironhide in the US and had the same problem.

Take a blow dryer to it. Stop after about 30 seconds and it will turn. Keep turning it back and forth several times to loosen it up and that's all there is to it. Apparently the glue keeping the halves of the head together may have leaked into the neck joint, inhibiting movement.

Early versions of Ironhide had poseable heads, not the case anymore to protect the electronics. It's glued on purpose. Mine has a poseable head.

Re: Leader Class Ironhide (Head Problem).

No, it should work, just be careful when you move the head around so you don't end up snapping the wires inside.

One of the wire connected to the battery chamber inside my ROTF Leader Megatron was snipped during customization. I don't have a welding heat pen to fix it and now he can't say "I am Megatron"

Re: Leader Class Ironhide (Head Problem).

Is there a metal pin inside? Maybe it's gotten a but rusty?
