    Hello everybody! I'm new to TFW and I wanted to show off my custom HFTD Ironhide.

    I like the figure, but I felt the grey tires and unpainted hubcaps didn't do it justice. I replaced them with black wheels from Armada Smokescreen. It worked pretty well. I also got my hands on an extra cannon to replace the drone weapon. So now he has both his cannons. :D 

    The best part is, his right cannon can still open to make space for the second one, just like it did for the drone weapon. The new wheels also roll, and they don't interfere with the transformation.

    I feel like it turned out well for my first custom.
    I will take more pictures later so I can add it to the gallery.

    Edit: Uploaded clearer pictures. More coming soon!

    I like the 2 canons. If I find they put him on sale, I may get another one. Cool!

    Very cool for your first custom figure.
    Looking forward to additional pictures.
    Did you also paint this figure?
    It looks better then the store bought version.

    This is great. I actually wanted to do this myself when I first saw this but didn't do it. About a month and a half ago I found this thread again and hunted down another Ironhide. I used the new Toys r us exclusive and it looks good. Anyway good job on your first custom it looks cool.
