    Had been thinking of this since I saw the first pics of Alt Prime on the net, I decided that Skids's head was too rounded looking to be Ironhide I wanted it to be more angular looking, so I ended up using a modified alternator Prowl head, the only problem is the ball that Prime's head is attached to is much smaller than the ball Prowl's head attached to so he's sort of a bobble head, I might fix it by filling the hole in the "Ironhide" head in with something, I don't want to make any permanent modifications to the body that will keep me from turning it back into Prime (until I at least know I can find another in a store!).

    All in all a pretty simple, but I feel effective kitbash.

    Not until I find another Prime - and I'll probably swap out the hands with some black ones.

    If you want a temp fix to the bobble head just wrap some tape around the ball so it fills out the area in the Ironhide head.
    And it looks good. I'm wasn't big on Ironhide being either the Ram or the Xb, but this actually looks pretty dang good. I'd like to see him with more silver and maybe some paint aps on that ring part like the toy's knee stickers had once you get another Prime. I just think that would make him really stand out. Just my opinion though. :)

    That head looks great! The Alt Prime mold works so much better as things other than Prime.
