    Definitely blame this one on Plowking! :lol 

    Thanks to Auceps Prime and hXcpunk23 for helping me with reference pictures and sketches, After many tries, the red doesn't quite show up right on film, but I'm content with them overall.

    The Alt Skids head was shaved down in certain spots to make the chin more pronounced, and was modded with the typical ball joint for added poseability.

    The MASSIVE hand cannon is from the Sigma Six Duke figure, minus the rocket pack (guess who's getting that, Slimaxis :thumb )

    The hands are from an Alt Sunstreaker junker, and he keeps the cool grappling arm and impact hammer from the original figure.

    Be on the look out for another couple of cool additions that will make him even more like his WWI inspiration (Windscreen, anyone? :lol )

    Nice work!

    The mold works well for WW Ironhide.

    I did it.

    Wow. That head is a perfect fit. Very nice indeed.
    The only thing I'd add would be a bit of battle scarring. He's a tough bot with a big honkin' cannon, so some scars could possibly add to the overall character.
    Either way, excellent job all around.

    Very cool! Love the BFG! You did a great job differentiating the mold from the original character. I didn't even realize which mold you had used until I saw the alt mode.
    Great work as always!

    Oh that mould is DEFinitely worthy of ol' Ironhide. If I hadn't seen the thread title I STill would've guessed who it was. And the hands are an awesome addition too. Thumbs freakin' up!

    Still Krylon Fusion, man. It's just super durable. Maybe one spot to touch up due to the TF, and that was my fault for not sanding properly! :lol

    This has all the standard ABX23 touches, that we have all come to know & love.
    However, ............
    Bot mode says Ironhide all over it. Alt mode, I get more of a Preceptor vibe from it.
