    AWESOME.

    I think your Ironhide customs are my faves overall :) 

    ...now that I think about that, I don't ever recall seeing the head for the movie custom you did. ???

    Why not do the stripe though?

    TBH, the stripe along the side 99% of the time looks like crap anyway because of all the "broken up" parts. I have yet to see it look good on a custom or OOB.

    Very nice. Are those new rubber tires or did you just paint the old ones?

    no mods, just paint. hell, I even left those "hands" or whatever you call them...


    They are stock tires, painted flat black (use a paint called "black chrome trim" which is super flat and looks a lot like rubber.

    Looks great man. I'm still not a fan of the brushed silverish stuff because it sets it too far apart from regular release paintjobs but that's just my opinion. I really dig how you added the make-a-wish license plate though and all the non-gloss colors you used

    fantastic paint job, I just hate the universe ironhide mold, I prefer the botcon version.

    the black windows along the side seems to make his alt mode look less like a jig saw

    Very nice. Good call on dropping the stripe, too. It adds another visual element that is broken up by the panels on alt mode.

    Great job on this, Mike! I really like that you guys did the G1 Autobots in their more modern styles and for a great cause as well.
