    Here is my take on Ironhide. I was very excited to hear he was being released and very disappointed when I saw him. I bought him anyway. I finally to fix him. I hated the light red so I repainted him a darker red and painted the windows black. I also painted the rims silver. The thing I disliked the most was the hands. They were awful. So after having some success with Gundam hands on other bashes, I thought I would try them out. I think they look great. I am working on another Ironhide now, but it will be a bit different, maybe as you would see him after the '86 movie hint hint ;)

    Great work and choice of colors. Those hands are a great addition. I've always hated the hands they chose to put on this guy and I think yours are a vast improvement
