    Hey, I got an Ironhide reissue with the upgrade parts for XMas (Thanks Wifey). After looking at it for 10 minutes, there was no way I was leaving such a great upgrade on such a crappy figure. I wanted an Ironhide that turned into a van and wasn't settling for a E. Tow-Line repaint. Legs are from a junker Ramjet I had. When it's all said and done it will transform into a Vanette, using the G1 parts. I know I'm the guy who never finishes anything, but since I'm a teacher, I get a week off, so I am hoping to at least get this one and the Megatron from June done. Here's all I got so far, comments and crits welcome.

    Dude, you better finish this.....it's a damn great idea! I'm pretty cool with the Universe Ironhide release, but seeing this really makes me want a G1-styled Ironhide.

    And I completely feel ya on never finishing anything. lol

    I'm the master of WIPs!

    Thanks. Tomorrow I should have some shots of the WIP vehicle mode. The waist does work for him, he's just a little shoter than I would like

    i am a WIP King too. THis looks great. It's a help that so many of the G1 bots' cartoon models had such generic body parts - it lets you roam free for kitbash donors!

    The wings (all parts) are what I'm looking for.
