    this was made from a universe 2.0 Iron Hide, this is a pretty cool mold i thought and its pretty easy to disassemble too, the hardest part was getting the paint the color i wanted.
    And yes that is recoil in his hand but his robot mode is not quite done yet so thats just a little tease

    That actually works pretty well. nice paint job and new head, too. Have you considered adding in some simple flat pieces of styrene across the tops of the rear end (his legs) to help further the look as a truck?

    I never dream that we can make Kup from Universe Ironhide. I also agree with Redline about that styrene also I've noticed that some of the original paint is bleeding through, but I think you can fix that, but despite that he looks awesome.

    I think some of the bleed-through is intentional...makes him look the part of the rusty old bastard.

    This looks great so far--always been a fan of Kup. I have an idea that is basically out of left field for a Kup custom I've been planning. Hope to see more, man.

    Oh I see to make him look "rusty". I didn't thought of it, well now I know I think now it looks better with the rust. So my bad.

    That works pretty well. I always wanted a differant mold for Ironhide though.

    BTW, the title reminded me of 'shit piece' from the Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime. :D

    Very innovative! I like the way you've handled the vehicle mode, nice rust application as well.

    Beyond the flat pieces of styrene to make more of a truck bed, have you thought of making some side mirrors? It would really help make the back of the SUV look more like a futuristic snub nosed truck
