    UPDATE 4/6 - NEW PICS...

    So this began as a commission and is now on route to ebay shortly. He's a full repaint (no mod work except unhinged his door panels off arms for now...). I used lacquer base coats and enamel details. Anyway, bought the 3rd party weapons (which are friggen awesome!) and gave Ironhide glow effects on the cannons. I also painted over his green eyes and gave him more accurate movie eyes. Sounds still work just fine. He is also transformable but I still have a little more work to do: more details (gold/silver gearing bits, license plate, some more apps on the weapons, still got to relocate his doors (which will be able to pin back in to their original spots based on owner preference).

    Update: So I went ahead and gave Ironhide some weathering and all and also painted on his license plate. So everything is all done now except to take some alt. mode pics!

    Looks cool, but why run the filter over the photos?

    Love the cannon effects! I'm thinking of putting LEDs in mine someday...

    Personally, I think Ironhide's one of the best characters for wear and tear, but I like my alt modes to be as clean and shiny as possible. So I'd say to give him the scrapes in such a way that won't interfere with his truck mode...

    This looks fantastic, bro. I would consider doing some MINOR paint wear on him. But dont go over board.
