    I was initially going to ape Jin's battle damaged Kup because I thought it looked awesome and I wanted one for myself but then this idea came to me a couple days ago. I wasn't sure how it would work out but I really can't stand the Universe Ironhide mold. So I just took the best part of him, his head, and went with it.
    Battle damage added just for fun.

    Good work. But I don't see this mold as Ironhide...
    Definitely did a good job though. How'd you attach the head? Last I knew, IH didn't have a balljoint.

    Thanks.
    Gundam joints and a dremel tool can go a long way.

    I'm gonna have to agree: I'm not sure this is the right mold, but very well executed.

    Some people had said this mold for Orion Pax and I wouldn't think it would be such a good idea. But now, seeing this custom all I can think of is to switch the head or modify it to look like Orion's.

    I really like the look you went for! And I really have nothing wrong to say about it.
    I would make it the center trooper of my classic shelf (with orion's head)!

    I think he makes for a great Ironhide, though maybe a younger version. Great job on everything!

    This.

    I think this was wonderfully executed, and I love the scraped up, dirt, war torn look about him. Great job.

    That works surprisingly well. I dig how it has both a WFC and movie vibe to it. Great paint applciations, too.

    I like the bulked up shoulders.
    It's certainly a different take on this ol' fav.

    I have to agree here. Infact I may make this custom myself. I don't really cae for the classics release of the figure.

    It kind of looks like one of those generic pre-war cybertronians and I don't mean that in a bad way, it just has that feel. It made me think of Alpha Trion and the female autobots for some reason.
