    I haven't been doing much customizing due to my back. But I still fiddle around with new stuff and found this leg mod for Classics Ironhide. I didn't like how Ironhide looked stumpy so this mod makes him as tall as Sunstreaker. It's quite easy. Just transform the crotch piece the way it is in the pic below. You will then need to swap the legs or else the legs will look like it's backwards. Just unscrew the screw at the hip and then swap the legs and screw back on. That's basically it. It can still transform back to SUV mode without having to swap back the legs.

    Awesome mod Viagra Prime simple and very affective. That's one of the things I didn't like about the new Ironhide that he was too short. Thanks for sharing. :thumbs2: 

    Edit: oh and it hides his giant crotch as well LOL

    What is it with these new Classics and their CROTCHES?!
    First Prime with his Spatula, then Sunstreaker and his dingleberries, now Ironhide and his huge package... :lol 

    Nice tweak, though -- I'll try it when I get mine! :thumbs2:

    Hey VP I'm seriously glad that you are able to do more customs in the state you're in. Honestly I don't have Ironhide yet so I'll have to see him first before I try this mod but if he's out of package shorter than streaker I'll have to do it

    Jeez man you do great work and I hope you get better soon so you can live a bit better. Even if you don't customize as much, just get better and stay that way

    EDIT: your health matters to us. I know I don't know everyone here personaly (like met you face to face) but sh*t I hope you're ok bro

    I have to say no to this. The rest of his body does not look right standing at this height and his waist is virtually nonexistent with the crotch sitting so low.

    Yeah, but the bumper barely makes a difference.

    Ironhide doesn't need to be tall and if you fix his arms, he doesn't look so fat.
