    Just finished my touch up repaint of Ironhide Classics. Tried to make it look like the Ironhide from the cartoon, so I painted all the windows a light blue, painted the face and rims silver, eyes yellow, and so on. I think the overall red body of the car would have looked better with a repaint; still thinking about doing that. If anyone is interested, it is on Ebay right now.

    Anyway, tell me what you think so far!

    that aside, the touch ups do look nice. I've always really liked this mold, so its cool to see people still doing stuff with it.

    yes, I definitely took the blue eyes into account, though the blue doesn't really show very well unless there is an LED involved.

    hmm... i feel like blue shows up just fine without an LED. The yellow is interesting though.

    The yellow eyes are eerie. They look like Prowl in the 80's movie when he was shot. But the figure overall looks real neat! :thumb

    does anyone think I should change the eyes from yellow to blue? Also, any ideas for improvement (besides repainting the red)?

    Eyes should be blue.

    Shoulders should be black, forearms should be red.

    Toy should not suck, but we can't help that one. :(

    I actually like the yellow, but they probably should be blue.

    you should probably take into account that all these posts (mine included) saying he should be this or that are really only if you want him to look more like his cartoon counterpart. If you like him the way he is, you definitely don't need to change a thing.

    True. I think both the blue and yellow look good, though it's nice to hear everyone's opinions.
