    Hehe, yes, another Ironhide. :D 

    Definitely had fun with him. Didn't paint the main body, but I did do the obvious face change, plus the windows. (Got rid of the sunroof) Also did up the shoulders in gray to help bring out a bit of the original. I left the forearms in black since I think it's a cool look.

    But one thing I decided to do was change the shade of gray. Sad thing is, the paint color I'm using chips a bit. I'll have to locate the scrape points and fix it later. But for now, I think the shade helps bring out a bit more of the cartoon feel.

    Also decided to leave the yellow stripe off. It'd look tacky, and I'm pretty good with how he looks.

    And yeah, I have him transformed in the alternate way that makes him taller. I was debating with doing the backscrew mod to put his tires in his backpack better, but it doesn't look so bad the way I have him. (angling them away from the body just enough to show transformation.)

    So, yeah, add another custom Ironhide to the pile. The more the merrier, eh? :wink:

    As with all of your work, I really like this one! I like a lot of the decisions you made with ol' Ironhide here.

    I don't consider this (or any other custom) that is similar to another "one for the pile", rather "one custom among a lot of similar customs for each of our collectins" :) 

    Great work :thumb

    Very nice. I agree with your decision to skip on the yellow stripe...the alt mode just wasn't designed with a stripe-accommodating transformation, haha.

    I have to leave it at "cannot confirm/deny." Obviously, not all my kitbashes will appear in the comic. But I don't want to spoil anything either.

    Sorry. :eek:
