    Inferno is nothing special. Got a gold marker, painted his head fins. Also painted his eyes metallic blue.

    Ironhide, this is an old custom I did a while ago. I uploaded pics but they weren't very good so I wanna do it over again.

    What I did was cut the flap from behind his head, cut his neck off (I R EBIL) and replaced it with Animated Jazz's balljoint. It fits alright... at first. I had to hollow his head a little for it to fit pretty well in there. As you can see in the picks it works pretty well.

    Nice work, man! I really dig Ironhide's new ball jointed head--my only question is if you cut the flap behind his head, doesn't this leave a gap in alt mode where it would have covered? Still looks great though.

    You know, a small hinge could be used there.

    Great work, buddy :thumb  This force is strong with you, my young apprentice. :)

    Both heads look better. Ball joint necks should be the standard for every TF figure. Nice job. What does Ironhide's alt mode look like now?

    Still looks the same. I kept the flap in case I ever want to TF it back.

    Also pained the windows black. Should have mentioned that :p

    So you just take the flap off when in bot mode? Windows look good.
