Ironhide & Search are the Japanese names for the Demolisher & Blackout figures as released in conjunction with Japan's Micron Legend series. These two figures retain their names, but get a brand new redeco for release in Japan's Super Link toy line.
Ironhide has 4 Mini-con posts, 1 of which activates a spring loaded missile launcher that deploys and then fires two missiles when a Mini-con is placed on the active post. The Mini-con Search can also be loaded into a spring launching mechanism on the front of the alt. mode and can launch when a button behind the turret is pressed. Another Mini-con friendly feature found on the figure consists of a seat which can deploy from behind the turret/chest of the figure allowing a Mini-con to take a ride or man the guns.
