    It's an overkill if you ask me. Koof really went all the way to town with his LED mods!

    Key Features

    Total of 18 leds all with highly accessible battery compartments! (Installed by Koof)
    - 5 blue roof light leds
    - 6 white head light leds
    - 1 blue led for his eyes
    - 2 leds in his original arm cannon
    - 2 leds in each of his special add-on cannons. Both cannons can 'swap' leds with a single switch
    - Head mounted on a ball socket
    - Removable mouth plate that are attached by rare earth magnets
    - Remoulded eye sockets to match his uneven on-screen eyes (though I think the shapes should have been swapped! Hehe.)
    - Modded knees for him to fully extend his knees when standing
    - Painted (similar to his voyager version) in Starburst Metallic Black with gold accents and highlights

    Absolutely brilliant. I wish I had the skills to replicate this. I'll just keep mine in factory colors. They don't bother me as much as they do other people.

    Also, I don't think it's overkill on the LEDs. It's perfect.

    Wah....i like how he turns out......It looks great !!!!!!
    The weapon is clip on the window's gap. I know the weapon switched, which the left should be on right, but no choice. The weapon's design not allowed me to do so, it is blocking the arm's panel, tat y i have to put it to left arm.... :)

    Damn girl this looks sweet. The LEDs look nice too. I do think you went a bit heavy on gold details in several places where silver or chrome would be accurate, but that's probably just pickyness from a guy who has painted a lot of movie Ironhides.
    The wheel wings are pretty distracting but you said you'd get new pics. Maybe hit some gold details with silver too before new pics for some juicy perfection? :) 
    Looks fantastic though either way.

    I'm in love!!!! this might be my fav custom of you to date!!! WOW
    this looks like a Ironhide that has defeated every single deceptipunk barehanded and afterwards getting ready for the press-conference.
    Then decided to let Sabrina give him a much needed sparkly new paintjob and hot carwash. To be ready for the big photoshoot and festival in honor for saving the planet!
