    I really hate Ironhide's cow face, so when the Lunchables render came along I thought "How nice". Unfortunately they didn't use it in the film, although you can see the retracted face plate.

    Using this as ref:

    I digibashed a pic to test it out, thought I liked it, so went ahead with the mod.

    Since I was already killing the toy, I also:
    - Lengthened his smokestacks
    - Cleaned his headlights, which are clear plastic but stupidly painted over by hasbro
    - Repainted his body. I hate the dark blue parts. From afar the out-of-box ironhide looks like a mess of black parts. Added silver fr more definition.

    I like the changes to the alt mode...his face in bot mode...I dunno, looks like he either has a big black nose or a hole in his head.

    I think the eyeliner should be gold. I love the silver though. I'm gonna drill out the eyeballs on mine so the lightpiping will actually work. I guess I'll put the gold around them when I 'm done too

    I plonked an unaltered skids head on mine. The blue goes well with the other blue on the body and looks pretty good in my opinion

    wow thats a world of difference!
    the face looks great. very nice work!
    i have been thinking the same thing (too much black).
    the silver looks way better, but would look fantastick with some blackwashing.
    haha the movie figures seem tobe more like "pre-assembled model kits, some minor painting required". :D 
    but i like painting stuff, so... cool for me!
    sculpting though, havent had the nards for that yet. respect for your skill!

    I like the other stuff, especialy silver.

    But the face, not so much. Guess I prefer the cow face.
