    Ok guys,
    here are two renders i did of Ironhide in robote mode. his Transformation is set so i mainly need you guys to help me with the color scheme. i'm pretty happy with the way it looks now, but i'm willing to play around with the color scheme and see if anyone can think of something better using the main colors i'm currently using.

    i hope you guys like it as i has trying to do the movie version of the character with an alternator feel using g1 colors. let me know what you guys think

    p.s. tell me if you guys think his chin guard should be gray or perhaps red.

    That's pretty cool, I think you should change the chin guard to red (IMO)

    I agree about the chin guard, and I think the shoulders would look better if you put the front bumper somewhere else (maybe on his back, like on the toy).

    Other than that, though, I like it a lot.

    I think the chest should be a little more angled instead of so flat. The movie Ironhide has a thick stocky chest, and the cartoon ironhide's chest wasn't flat either. That's the one thing that really stands out to me, but I like the concept.

    Wow. That is sweet. A red Topkick. Great job, man.

    I've tried imagining remakes with original color schemes, kinda like the movie Jazz G1 Colors figure. The G1 colors don't work well on the Solstice IMO.

    But the red on the Topkick, however, does. (BW Megs voice) Yesssssss...

    thanks for the great feedback i'm glad you guys liked it.

    redline,
    his chest does have a slight slant. i didn't make a huge slant because if i did, it would mess up the transformation. but agian thanks for the feedback. i'm starting ratchet tonight. though i don;t know how long it will take me. but i'll keep everyone updated.

    does anyone have any good ideas or pics for an alternator style ratchet head, maybe something someone used in a drawing or kitbash? i don't want to use the ironhide head i just used.
