    My take on Ironhide from the concept art for Animated Season 4. After Prowl's death, Jazz stays on Earth, and new recruit Ironhide joins the team, essentially becoming the live action movie's cast.

    Thanks guys...stprime, Syd, Rumble02 that means a lot.

    Do Autbots use guns? Ha...I agree, that would probably be a better interpretation, but I settled on copying that concept art as closely as possible. Although there seems to have been a G1/Movie version sketched out.

    Agreed. Hot Shot, Marauder Megs, hell even the straight repaints would have been great. The next two seasons storylines seemed awesome too.

    wait wait wait wait wait...Which base figure did you use and what exactly have you done to it? The figure is soo close to the concept art, so clean, I thought it came out of the box like that!

    Can he transform too?

    Big fan of your work. The photos are beautiful as well.

    Edit: OOH it's deluxe Sentinel Prime. Google is awesome.

    Wow, that's a clean ass paint job! I'd swear it was dyed or molded in that plastic. Nice work!

    That is fantastic work. TF:A had some of the best designed transformations I've seen, I really wish it had continued on.

    What kinds of paints did you use? Everything looks clean and smooth.

    Super-nice!

    I have to be a bitch though..that piece of art was just a suggestion by Hasbro to make the Animated crew more like their movie counterparts - something that they will not have gone through with. The other piece of Ironhide art - the one with the cannons and the G1 windshield - is probably alot closer to what Ironhide would have looked like in the possible season4.

    But let's be honest here: really nice custom! It's a relatively simple mod, but done perfect! Good job!

    I recall hearing DJW saying those were just what Hasbro mocked up, the actual concept art for Earth mode Ironhide on the page next to it shows him as being red.

    Thanks again folks. The headswap is incredibly easy too...no mod at all, the existing balljoint fits perfectly.

    It's Testors Acrylic...specific colors: Flat Black, Gloss Black and Cobalt Blue. The grays are homemade, made from a couple of flat grays...but all Testors Acrylic, painted super thin. Alt mode is almost all gloss black...pics coming tomorrow.

    Yeah, and I agree, if there was a 4th season, I doubt Animated would follow this route, but I really dug that concept art. The windshield/cannon version is waaay outside my capabilities! Thanks for the comments though.

    Awesome work. I always thought Sentinel's build would work as Ironhide.
