Ability: An investigator attached to Seibertron's capital city police force. Dispatched to Earth with his brother Clamp Down, with whom he shares a common program architecture, being born of the same-generation product line. He performs solo infiltration/investigation missions, making much use of his image projection, parabolic antenna and size-reduction functions, the last of which can shrink him down as far as 1/40 normal size. Deep Cover carries many secrets within him, a fact that sometimes shows in his tired expression.

Ironhide Protect Black (e-Hobby exclusive, 2008)



Profile (Translated from the extended ehobby.co.jp bio)
Ironhide Protect Black
Function: Cybertron Guard Member
Motto: “Circuits are no substitute for gut!”

Character:
Ironhide is a member of the Cybertrons and maintains a lot of influence. He has a youthful enthusiasm and tends to be quite militant. One of his duties is guarding Supreme Commander Convoy. After battles, Ironhide is conscious of how the conflict affects the Earth. His duty not only has him disguised from the criminal earthlings, but also from the Destron army. He covered himself in a jet-black colour in order to increase his protection capacity of Convoy. His fellow Cybertron soldier companions have whispered that he got the idea from Men in Black style vehicles, however he has seen a few black pick up trucks around town.

Ability:
He has increased his trithyllium steel skin's durability by coating his armour with a composite gel metal. This allows him to immediately self repair minor injuries. His mobile artillery has increased 25% allowing him to protect the Supreme Commander Convoy with ease and enabling a swift counter offensive. He can handle the roughest of terrains using his three legged marauder mode.

GiG's Diaclone & Trasformers (Part 3: Trasformer Auto Robot)

The yellow version of Countach LP 500S (Source: eBay)

After completing their run of Takaras initial Diaclone figures in 1983 (see Part 2), the following year in 1984 GiG released their version of the Diaclone Car Robot line up. "Car" in Italian translates as "Auto", so these releases were renamed "Auto Robot", the name Diaclone was removed and instead they were re-branded under the name "Trasformer".
