    Weaponmod:

    I used the Movie 2 Ironhide-Weapons. On the Left one no heavy mods are needed, the right one, you had to figure out for yourself. I needed a lot of cuting and gluing, try and error blahblah.... i did it, cause my very tiny rare earth magnet are not strong enough (Neodym Magnets, but only 4mm wide and 1mm thick, not enough for big guns)

    I also modded the Flap on his left arm which is very loose in botmode, i fixed it with magnets and metal plates. Hope i can paint this guy very soon.

    Tadaa! No Magnets needed, look Hasbro, this is how you could do it! Shame on you *lol* just kidding! I love what Hasbro did, when all figures where perfect, customs where useless right? :) 

    Hope you like it, if so, please leave a comment and/or critic.

    And yes: I know the weapon on his left arm isn't accurate, but it's okay for me.

    Ah and before i forget it: you could at his sniper rifle to BOTH cannons on each arm! :D  pics later

    These hands are just amazing as always. Only thing that irks me is that they need to be a bit bigger for Ironhide. Which I bet if there is enough demand someone will design some.

    Great use of Voyager IH's weapon. I like the weapon attachment. Simple is always better.
    I'm sure you are facing a same question as I do.....

    What the heck are we suppose to do with Voyager IH now? I guess I'm going to kill it and use its parts for other MODs and Custom work b/c I doubt anyone would want to buy weapon less IH.

    Great seeing you posting again bud.

    oh yeah my friend, i hav several version of them here (Movie, ROTF, DOTM) and i thing, i wil create non transforming guys out of them, maybesome general decepticons, parts of the could be uses to bulk others up (I'm thinking about a non transforming DOTM leade rmegs, i saw 2 perfect executed versions, one from frogdna, and one other on facebook. maybe i'll not comin' close to them, but i was so dman impressed by these guys that i really want my own accurate robot :) 

    and i'm happy to be back in business, i hope i can follow my new resolutions :D

    Any chance you can find a way to modify the right and left undersides of DOTM Leader Ironhide's truck mode to hold those cannons like 2007 Movie Voyager Ironhide does?

    Dude I had the same plan for bigger arm blasters. Was going to make big ones that just peg over the retracted stupid small ones in bot mode so I could keep the truck mode gimmick too. Those movie2 guns you used are a perfect start for the right size, although I'd have to add to them. I gotta find those arm guns for cheap so I can do this!

    it was not my intention to use them, just wanted them for sizecomparison, then i got a flash of genius with adding hese pegholes and then i used them. The left arm gun was bulked u with the most accurate ironhide version: recon ironhide

    hope i'll see your version of leader ironhide soon, btw: you got a pm

    awesome, dude! love the blades and hands °_° but why didn´t you paint the altmode? a glossy black colour would look in my opinion times better than the plastic black. nice details on your ironhide, for me there could be some details less, but it´s your turn :) 
    If I would have an ironhide, it would be my next custom ^^

    It's cause the fact that i dont't have the decals and i'm afraid i kill the Altmode with a maybe crappy airbrush (i'm still in practising-phase)

    sadly you haven't bought the cheap irohides from amazon.fr for 22 Euros last month

    thx for the kind words dude :)
