    As soon as I saw the new kup mould, I thought I had to be dreaming. A new version of Ironhide, inspired by both the Movies and G1! Sure it's kinda small, but it beats Universe Ironhide by miles. I've seen pics of AM Ironhide, and we will probably get one of our own down the line, but I just couldn't wait. Besides, somebody had to do this. Alt mode pics coming soon.

    Update: now with altmode pics. It seems the vehicle mode scales well with classics optimus... but not that well with anything else!

    'Nother Update: So I just got back from my vacation and realized that I had a request for more pics. I put Ironhide next to various classics figures to show just how he would work scale-wise. He stands great by PRID Ratchet (who has a new head to make him a classics) and looks okay by some of the other generations figures, but when compared to RTS Jazz, he may come up short. If you want the Takara AM Ironhide for your CHUG collection, use caution.

    This looks good. It makes me anxious to get my AM Ironhide I have on preorder.

    I don't understand how he looks anything like a War or Fall version. He has an earth mode. That's as far from War as you can get.

    Thanks. I forgot to study this mould, so I'm probably going to have a lot of it rub off during the transformation, but this was something I was so anxious to do that I just did it. I almost never do full repaints, because I don't have the confidence, but the need to see this toy in red drove me to get my hands dirty.
    Just check the base toy for rub areas and sand them down so they are not much of a problem. After that, there's really so many ways you can paint a toy that you can just look on the tutorials page and see which techniques work for you.

    That's a pretty good repaint. :) 

    I may do this with a Kup figure since the actual Ironhide figure may be Takara exclusive. that and I want my Prime Ironhide giure to have two cannons.

    i'm waiting for both Kup and Ironhide. It'd be nice to have a non-trashy Ironhide and Ratchet in the series. XD
    nice job man. XD

    Would you possibly be up for taking and posting some shots of this custom with some Classics type figures? (Or perhaps even with Prime figures like Ratchet)
