    Had this guy done before I realized they were even doing Classics Ironhide, just never got around to taking photos before now. Most of the custom sculpt is apoxie sculpt work, except for his little shoulder cannon -- that's from an Iron Man Face Off figure. Enjoy and please comment, I love reading the responses!

    Ironhide from Smokescreen? You made it work. Nice gloss red paint and cool head.

    I like it. Has a very 'War Within' vibe going on.

    Unfortunately it reminds me how much that toy sucked, lol.

    Good job, though. Ironhide looks grumpy as usual. :)

    Wow, it's nice to see one of the biggest turd molds made into a cool custom. You get an A just for that :) 

    I would like to see a different head and some different treatments for the hands, as I feel that these two elements made the toy feel too childish. Aside from that, I think everything else you did makes this piece really stellar. Great job :thumb
