?

Should I make his face silver like G1 or keep it red since the movie is mostly black?

    I got the ROTF Ironhide to swap parts and get the new canon. But rather than let this figure go to waste, I decided to give this guy the G1 treatment. I tried some different things on him. First, swapped heads and with my Premium Ironahide. Swapped heels with my movie Ironhide. Then I kept some of the original gray parts like the upper arm, torso, back, and fists. Sprayed cherry red on the forearms, head and vehicle mode. Sprayed the waist silver. Sprayed the inside panels black and drybrushed aluminum. Added some copper highlights. It's 99% done but I like how he looked before I put him back together. I still have to add final touches in vehicle mode and on the face.

    I agree, he's pretty damn sinister looking in redface! I think maybe just detail it out a bit in silver. Also when completed a bit of matte sealer on the head would make it right!

    You sure have been busy huh!:thumbs2:

    I think the hip/groin area needs red too. It'll make it a bit more G1 IMO.:thumbs2:

    I say silver to break up all the red. It still looks great as-is though. I'm a diehard fan of G1 Ironhide, but seeing movie Ironhide in these colors makes me want to pick it up.

    Lots of great suggestions. I'll have to post pics of him now. I attached the panels.

    What's cool about this figure is that you can keep some of the gray parts like he has in G1 unless you want to just paint the whole thing anyway.

    Go with a little bit of silver, just to break it up a bit, otherwise lookin good.
