    I'm a bit burnt out on my Devastator project, so I picked up something small and easy. At least he's not that weird baby blue anymore.

    Replaced his drone cannon with a gun off a Zoids Shadowfox. It already had a slit to fit onto the peg! Brushed with Testors Model Masters Flat Black, Silver, Gloss Black, a mix of orange, a mix of blue for the eyes, and gold.

    Thanks for looking. :)

    Nice job, this is precisely what I plan to do when I finally get my hands on this figure, particularly like what you did with the drone arm.

    Definitive movie Ironhide right here :)

    Thanks Bovril!

    OmegaPrime: I agree, he's pretty tiny. I'm hoping Hasbro takes some of the good features of this fig and makes a much improved Voyager or a HA next time.

    I totally agree - until this figure came out I was scale-obsessed, nothing got into my collection if it didn't fit the other figures in that line. Ironhide changed all that... he's just sooo much better than the voyager version and I really hope they apply those improvements to a new voyager for TF3.

    I've modded mine to look more movie accurate. :D  Heres the mods on my 07 voyager class ironhide if you want to know...

    *Moved the head(from recon ironhide) forward and put a ball joint on it*
    *Put backpack from Recon Ironhide on to the 07 one*
    *Swithed guns from Recon Ironhide on to the 07 one*
    *Added interchangable bumper*
    *Added custom paint job :wink: *

    ...and it still transforms. :cool: 


    But... :useless

    Let's see it then! :) 

    Looks like we got our wish, or at least part of it. The new figure looks like it'll be awesome with some modding.

    I don't suppose you happen to have another of those zoids guns knocking about? I'm having real trouble finding anything to fit in there that has sufficient detail / quality plastic

    Eh, I'm not terribly crazy about the new Voyager Hide. I might change my mind once some artists get hold of one and bring out the potential I may be missing. And sorry, that was the only gun like that on the Shadowfox. Have you poked around the Junk Pit? I think there's some people with Zoids bits for grabs there.

    Thanks!

    Thank you.

    Awesome repaint. Only thing I can suggest is some dirt/weathering on the tires. :)

    I'll have a dig around the pit then :) 

    Surprised you don't like the new voyager... aside from the pegholes and lack of paint, he's the bomb! I'm already working on the guns for him :)

    Thanks! I think I'll leave him as is though--Got some new projects I'm working on.

    The gun was from its tail, iirc.

    Eh, I dunno. He may yet grow on me.
