    Excellent job. I was debating over buying one of those figures. The changes you've done to it make it look like a different toy.

    Where does everyone get the cannons for Ironhide? Are the appropriately scaled size ones available somewhere?

    I don't know about these ones, but "Fans Want It", the group that made the leader Starscream thrusters, are coming out with some weapons like these...

    I'll be definitely getting those :)  Just curious as everyone seems to be making or using cannons that look like they're from something ie they look about 100% identical.

    That aside this repaint/retool is fantastic! I gunned my Ironhide custom up but the cannons are what he really needs and you've done a great job there.

    His backpack and butt look great too and are consistent with the bulky stature of the characters design.

    And thanks to everyone's comments, as for the cannons, it was bashed together using ROTF deluxe scorponok's hand, ROTF voyager ironhide's cannons, the original "tiny little" gun from this leader class figure.

    On a second thought, getting the parts from FWI for $20 is def cheaper than bashing these 2 figures into this lol.
