    This was a very special commission for a friend of mine, which is a gift to someone special to him.


    They reside in Boston, hence the "Boston EMS" decals and what not on the alt mode. He's still drying, so I will add additional pictures tomorrow.

    The custom started as a TFU Ironhide. I made many mods to it, though most of them are only visable in bot mode. The light bar comes from a RID Prowl (I think)

    Added: The bot mode's transformation is slightly different than Ironhides. I also added a small styrene head crown. The wrench comes from a TFA Ratchet (lol) and the hands are from gundam 1/100 sets. I made a "torch module" which connect to the same magnet which the hand would. flames for that made on a wire from hot glue and paint.

    I looked at this figure, and I'd be curious to use the back of the truck as a front for a "G1" kitbash of this figure....

    there was no need to use flikr to make your pics fullsize in the post, mike. I fixed it for ya by right-clicking your attachment thumbnails and pasting the link into the IMG tags.
