    I removed quite a few of the parts from Ironhide as I made him for me, yep that's right for me :D  Anyway, I wanted him to be G1 all the way. If I can recall, there is no yellow striping in his actual G1 bot mode and thus none on mine either.

    No transformation mode because of the bot mode's alterations.

    I still have some extremely minor apps I am contemplating on wheter to do here and there and I may gloss him, not sure yet. Oh yeah, I may plug up those holes on his forearms or maybe give him some accessories to go in them too.

    UPDATE: So I fully sealed Ironhide and then semi-glossed him. He is now on EBay as I have another one in the making but with battle wear; my personal preference!

    Here's a video review for those interested in seeing his semi-gloss update:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5A8ZWUjUws

    Very cool. Nice job. The paint looks clean. I think you need to rough him u a bit. He is one tough bot after all.

    Thanks Guys!

    Chaos, I may just do that!
    Cheetor, not for this one but I am a big fan of roughing up customs man :) 
    SP, thanks dude, it's actually just a white bulb rather than a yellow one (which can taint a figure's color).

    For you guys who are intersted in doing this yourself...DO IT!!!! It's a very easy repaint and I think it's probably one of the more closer G1 figures.

    i completely agree with you this is the best g1 representation of iron hide 2 date,

    my one gripe is that since he is non transforming you should look into getting some real hands for him (i did it on mine and he was still transformable but ended up taking it back off)


    but still awesome version of ironhide

    i ended up taking a parts from other bots (one was a knock off) and a ball joint that fit and mounted the hand onto it

    but i didnt want to damage the original ones if you were more willing to do that i bet you could use darkmounts hand on that ball joint or drifts (the ball joint on his hand is a little small but you could probably rework that onto the one from ironhide and give him a hand that can hold your standard 5mm peg weapon

    Good tip with Darkmount. I got 2 commissions right now underway including a Huffer into Road Ranger and a WFC Megatron.

    After that, I got Darkmount going Warpath and I'll take his hands then!!
