    This is my 3rd attempt at this guy using different molds and such.
    This time, I went back to an old Ironhide G1 custom I did using Inferno and swapped out his arms with energon Barricade's (from junker Galvatron custom I did). They're shorter, but I think they still work and I think his alt mode comes together a bit nicer.

    After doing that, I realized I wanted both ends to slope like the original minivan, so I chopped off his chest and attached it with legos. It attaches with legos where it was for his robot mode.

    Now to make that special run to Autobot City on Earth...

    Interesting kitbash. Reminds me of War Within Ironhide.

    Looks cool but the alt mode is lacking a cohesive look. I'm all in favor for cybertronian modes but this guy needs something more. Maybe some built up armor or extra external weapons would do the trick

    I agree with Lucs. it's a cool bash but he could benefit from some sort of added armor or weapons on top to finish him up.

    Hmmm.... I think you're right, but now I just need to find
    the right armor.

    It's not bad. I'm not caring for his alt mode though. It just looks thrown together and unfinished. His arms should be longer too. They look stubby.

    cool custom so far VM. i think you should pic up some styrene to use for the armor. i dont think ive seen a samuria Ironhide yet and i think this mold would lend it self well to this design maybe pic up some jewlery rings so you can segment the armor

    oh and dont forget to give him a huge spear and maybe a shotgun (i cant see IH weilding a sword)
