    Here's my small modifications to my favorite figure of Ironhide.

    1st you'll see the Left Cannon Mod I posted some time ago, but can't find again - so here it is again...

    Take one Robot Heroes Ironhide:

    Cut off the Left Cannon:

    Cut notches to match the pegs on HftD Deluxe Ironhide:

    Slide the new gun onto the pegs & you're golden:

    According to this thread (which you'll have to register to see), this should also be transformable if done correctly...

    Adding to that, I also compared the figure's chest armor to this render:

    And realized that the chest armor doesn't have the top-most tab, so I chopped it off with wire cutters:

    Which looks MUCH better in my book - and now Ironhide can actually look DOWN!
