    Hi all,

    This still needs a bit of work done to it yet, but I thought you might enjoy seeing my latest custom works. The small figure will be Spike by the time I am done.

    Thanks go out to TFMaster of Transtopia for the inspiration to make one of my all time favorite characters for my collection, but with my own spin. This is far from done, but I hope you enjoy what you see so far. It is made from a BTA Broadblast and a few key components from the ALT to make this a true BT "Scion". Head is a modified Prowl head which I am still doing more work to as well.

    Now there's a GREAT take on a so-so mold. Awsome job. :rock 




    Anyone else find it kind of ironic that Hasbro named the least-cool of the Alts Skiz?

    You just leave Matt Tracker alone. What did he ever do to you? That said, awesome work.

    I don't know if I'd call Skids the least cool.

    Just took this recent picture of the nearly finished robot mode. As you can see, any color discrepencies in the finish have been corrected. I decided to go without the fully rounded head because I fell in love with what I did. I did do a bit of rounding to it.....closer to the front of the head and the very back. I also shaved off the "chin" piece to give him his more anime look and added some new silver chrome paint apps.

    Enjoy,

    -Gregg

    Without further ado..........BT Ironhide!

    That is some great work there. Hasbro should really take notice and do the same thing!

    Like I've said before, after seeing a few Alt. Skids -> IronHide kitbashes, I'd be perfectly fine with the remold of Skids being Ironhide... unless of course Hastak is planning on an Ironhide specific mold. But this mold does work well for him and dang it, I want an Ironhide Alt. He's the only character I've been dying for ever since the beginning.
