    Reason:
    I ended up getting Ironhide around the time he was just being released for a really cheap deal, hearing all the hype on him pushed me to own one, but once getting it in my hands, i was slightly disappointed, butt flaps, are flaps, glued head and the cannons. I was glad Hasbro finally gave us a big Ironhide, but i guess after seeing what they did to ROTF LDR Prime and Starscream, i got a bit spoiled, as i was walking to the Laptop to post him on ebay to get rid of him, i saw Frenzy Rumble, Zildjian, X-Cal, Encline and others Customs on this figure and they all looked beast. So i said why not, the hardest part of this was figuring out the color scheme. But i am fully inlove with how this all turned out and hop you all dig it too.

    *Added a Ball joint neck
    *Articulate hands with custom made knuckles
    *Re-Positioned chest, calve wheels and redesigned the entire back
    *Custom made chest plate
    *Plastic bits added to the legs and feet to give it a more accurate movie feel
    *Scratch built Arm cannons
    *Custom made and painted Rifle w/ grenade launcher & Custom made Automatic machine gun with scope built from scrap parts and Banana clip
    *Krylon Fusion Banner red for the base coat
    *Model Master Chrome Black added and buffed to hood of the GMC Topkick
    *Testor’s One Coat Lacquer spray “Inca Gold” for the G1 throwback
    *Robot parts were Sprayed In ultra flat black, dry brushed in 6 different shades of silver from gun metal to metallic
    *Thigh flaps and chest were primed in Ultra flat black, dry brushed in gunmetal and hit with a bone white
    *Chrome Black and gloss black paint on the rims to give it a black alloy feel
    *Silver dry brush apps to base color to give of realism
    *Then all sealed in Future Finish
    *Due to the mods, he is Non Transformable

    The custom looks great! I just can't get past this mold in red.... for some reason it does not fit to me. That does not take away from the work though!

    I am lucky enough to get to see this in person, and it is amazing. The amount of little details from the worn paint, and "rubber" residue around the fender like a real truck just send it over the top for me. Despite having much better than cell phone pictures, it just does not do it as much justice as in person. Top notch dude!!

    I think the ONLY thing that could add to this is the thigh panels being red. Right now, the upper legs seem bare.
    Otherwise, this is an excellent piece (too bad it doesn't transform).

    Niiiice. Good use of the red too, I think this is one of the few cases where it actually works.
