    dug this out of my forgotten customs box and wanted to post this before I say good bye to it, this one its from my own personal collection , Ironfist In the kinda classics style, made from the ironman transformer. I did this one in the free hand speed painting style with washes , enamels, acrylics and more and also experimented with the cracked effect paint which I love because it gives the figure a nasty filthy rusted worn weathered look. Yes the gun is from a bakugun lol .

    I love the extreme weathering! Looks really good! This mold was a no-brainer for Ironfist, but this might be the first one I've seen. It's a Gundam head with an added crest, from what I can see, right?

    This mold was released as Captain America AND Ironman. This one is the Ironman version, because it has the triangular emblem on the hood instead of a star.

    This is a fantastic mold... very useful for a number of characters. But it's also pretty BIG, so it might be a bit on the beefy side for Swindle, depending on whether you want to display him next to other figures.

    Ironfist looks awesome. Just like all the other customs you've done using this mold. As I said in another thread, I think there are more customs using this mold than there are original figures left. This is a great base figure, I have two myself. Nice work here!!

    I'm totally copying your idea!
    Is the backpack also from bakugon? I'm not familiar with bakugon. They have guns? I thought they were just little guys that roll up into a ball.

    Great weathering details--he looks like he's been to G-9 AND back! What donor figure did you use for the head--did you have to mod it at all to get the right look?

    I used the head from a gundam figure but since I do not know much about gundam I can't tell you the nane or model of the figure. The gundam figure head was almost the same as ironfist I only cut the little antennas on the fore head added the front piece using styrene then paint. It was easy. Thank you
