A more movie accurate Ironhide
What do you guys think?
I don't like it. It may be movie accurate, but it doesn't work, IMO.
Call me an idiot, but is that a modded FAB, or is that the Voyager or w/e class Ironhide is?
Eh, I prefer him the way he is.
What did you do anyway? I haven't seen enough pics of this toy to know the difference.
yeah same here, I dont know what's different, but im guessing logner smoke stacks?
I like the Idea (had the same thought) but I think the stacks dont exactly fit. There just a little to wide in diamiter.
NICE! I think they look out of place because of their height. The "stock" exhaust pipes on Ironhide need to be taller, silver painted (or vacuum metallic chrome) and not painted to match the truck. Have you EVER seen a tall-pipe exhaust on a truck or semi painted to match? Nope.
I like. Especially in car mode!! Ehh in Robot mode the Stacks just hang there so I dont really care too much.
I dont mind the ones that are there now, I just wish Hasbro wasn't so cheap that they couldn't make them silver :/
Looks good to me!
I guess I'll find something later that will get me closer to this:
Which was present in the Hasbro prototype, but cut short just like they did with Prime for the final. Does anyone out there with the Ironhide prototype can confirm they have the long stack?
Also, do you think the same trick used to take the wheels off the Alts would work for Ironhide? and what Alt's tire would make a good replacement?
maybe the long stacks will be on the takara version
lol yeah, my bad. sad thing is I have the FAB and I should've noticed the lack of clear windows...and detail.
But I still wuvs it
My test shot Ironhide doesn't have the tall-stacks. Only early pre-paint protos would likely have long stacks. I think they circumsized Ironhide's stacks for safety reasons.
