I had wanted to create transformable arm cannons for Ironhide since the first voyager version came out. I already had the plans drawn up but I never did get around to doing it. Always felt there was more to fix with that mold than just cannons. Deluxe Ironhide fixes a lot of those movie design inaccuracies. It has its own problems of course, least of which is the size. But so far it has become my favorite movie Ironhide mold. Since his left arm has a drone instead of a proper weapon, I decided to create my own cannon. I wanted to create bigger ones for both arms, but I decided I'll wait for what the third movie has to offer. For now, I made one simply to replace the drone. I prefer my TFs to be self-contained: no partsforming. As such, the new arm cannon is transformable.The smaller cylinder is hinged and rotates to fit inside the cab space. I also constructed running boards for the alt mode. These also transform with the figure. The toy was then filled with epoxy where necessary and then sanded. I played around with simulating the different metal sheens and textures using paint. Alt mode is pristine, bot mode is weathered. I also added all the necessary decals and missing elements: from the fender logos to the license plates (both alt and bot modes) to the small GMC logo at the back. I also sculpted the Autobot logo at the back. There are a couple of lights not added, but I didn't want to drill into the figure. Thanks for looking. .
