    Hello there, This is NexMortuus Bringing you a update on a recent custom i have been working on. Its Non other than IRONHIDE!!! When I first got Ironhide i hated the fact that he came with a ugly gun and really ugly looking hands. But at the time i was an inexperienced customizer so i accidentally melted my Ironhide, worst thing ever. So I drooped this project for a while until i found a really cheap ironhide for 2 bucks complete (no gun so i did not care) in the swapmeet, but onething bad on him is that the day i bought him it was really hot and he was baking in the sun so his paint started to come off so he was perfect for a custom. Now lets get into the details on what i did and still need to add to him to finish him.

    Well first off i cliped of his ball joints from his original hands and i took prowls hands and sanded them down to a even flat surface to be able to unite with superglue and there i got his hands. The second thing i did was find a good looking gun so i found grevious gun and customized it like crazy took off things and added a way he could hold it, i use epoxy to make it. Then i painted it black and added texture to it by making it look used and battle dirty so i drybrushed both silver and bronze looks awesome (i dont think the pics do it justice). So now all i need is to paint it with a candy red paint job add a few black on some of him and give him a cool black racing stripe and black windows and 2 autobots symbols.


    Let me know what you guys think of my custom so far and if you have any comments i would appreciate it thanks

    promising start, I'd reccomend doing Matt Booker's alterations to him though finishing with a ball joint in the head. Doing that improved the toy so much.
