    Here he is Ladies and gents. The one the only Ironhide.
    Ironhide spent most of his life as a asteriod ore miner back before the great wars. Getting sucked in when the 'Cons attached his freighter Ironhide was the only one to make it out alive. And when I say only one i mean only one including the 'Cons. He was soon in the thick of alot of battles but thanks to a wierd alloy in his metal he was a walking tank. Almost unstoppable. After the great war he retired and settled down near his one of his old friends, Kup. upon hearing that Megatron was back and his other dear friend Ratchet was in trouble he set off for Earth. Once there he took the form of an armoured car and set out to find his friends.

    I hope you like him. I will be selling him soon so if anyone wants to shoot me an offer please feel free to, :D

    Not bad! I do think the vehicle mode needs some kind of color to break up the sides... The original Ironhide toy had those gold stripes down the middle, maybe something like that. Or maybe a WICKED AIRBRUSHED MURAL of a lady on a dragon. Whatever works for you. :D

    Well I thought about giving him the goldish stripes, but I wanted a plain look to him as per his bio of copying an armored car. So a mural of a lady on a dragon would not work either. ;)

    That looks pretty sweet man. I second the idea of a mural of a lady on a dragon j/k. That actually made me think of those cellphone commercials with that wizard mural.

    On a more serious side I do agree that the red is kind of too much. Maybe some gold around the bumper and sideskirts would be cool. I know painting straight lines is kind of hard

    In the TFA cartoon he turns completely silver when he goes "ironhide"!
    That would be a nice repaint too.
    This looks great, by the way.

    Very nice! might I make a suggestion to sepertate him from Ratchet even more so, Swap the "Stingers" for a pair of hand guns or at least mold-em a lil "gunnish" it would add a lot to the character.
