    Just finished up with my custom Ironfist. I ordered the incredible Wheel jack upgrade parts from Shapeways, hand painted the DOTM Ratchet figure and sealed it in several layers of Krylon Matte Clear.

    Awesome. Now convinced that is a good upgrade.

    If it's the same kit that's on here, yes it should still transform. It's just a slide on for the waist, and new hands and head. Everything fits the way it should, except as you see in the pictures, the bumper doesn't fold down on the waist, it stays one piece.

    Looks good :)

    You just made my night bro. Great paint job!
    I have some questions for you if you don't mind.

    -What materials did you use?

    -Did you have any issues putting it together?

    -Can I use some of your images for my ironfist shapeway's listings? (i'll give you credit of course)

    Thanks for getting this man. I really really appreciate it and it's really cool to see your take on this guy.

    more info here :)  http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commissioner-listing-feedback/640479-wheeljacks-custom-body-shop.html

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

    Black Detail.

    It does indeed!

    Thank you, bellyboy!

    It is. I decided to order the kit with no bullet hole.

    I used the black detail plastic from Shapeways.

    I had zero issues. In my humble opinion you shouldn't change a thing!

    Feel free to use the images on your Shapeways listing. I feel quite honored, thank you! And thank you and destrongerlupus for creating this wonderful and amazing product!
