    Hey, i did this at work today (i work at michaels) and just wanted to share with ya'll. Its a WIP, i wanna paint the front bumper silver as well as the smoke stacks and i need to touch up some of the paint cuz it sort of got indented when i transformed it. i think i also want to pain the side gastanks/arm cannons and the rims silver as well. Some of the testors spray paint kinda of misted into the insides when i painted the truck even though i used painters tape to cover the insides but i kind of like how it gave the robot mode a redish tint.

    first, Robot mode:

    The paint job is good, but the figure still sucks. Do you plan on adding a new head?

    You obviously don't have it, as it's one of the best figures in a while.

    Not digging the red at all, really. Needs to be cleaned up, obviously, being a WIP. Be interesting to see the final results.

    na i'm not gonna add another head, the whole point of this repaint was to see what the character would've looked like in g1 colors. i was considering painting the head red but seeing how it turned out, i wanna keep it the way it is. I just may pick up another ironhide to make a "cleaner" repaint :)

    Eh, just the red does not work with him. I mean it looks ok, but just, something about it.

    That red may be a bit too bright. A darker maroon color would probably be more realistic.

    Curious on the final. The paint mists that traveled to the body are killing it. But the red really doesn't look that great IMO. I'm glad they went black on this one.

    I would suggest adding some more red here and there to the robot mode.

    They're out of stock at the moment, though.

    I like this a lot. But I can't help but think it would look good in a dark red, like a burgundy. And please don't add the van's stripes, they would look terrible on a Topkick.

    I'm still debating if I want to do thios, to my Ironhide. The red does look better, in vehicle mode. It needs more red in bot mode, though. I was thinking of painting the face silver, and the rest of the head red, if I do it.

    Can't wait to see your finished product.
