    My final commission and custom of 2019! For this one I was asked to forget about the combining thing and make BW Ironhide a stand-alone figure that is significantly larger, has better articulation, and looks better while keeping the whole ganky monstrous bot look he had with the long arms, stubby legs, and most of the other weird stuff that made him the wacky beastly mess of a thing he was.

    Figure is over an inch and a half taller now in bot mode and both longer and taller in elephant mode. I basically chopped it to bits and rebuilt/resculpted then repainted it.

    Sure to still not be everyone's cup of tea, but hopefully some of you have some appreciation for the weirdness of some of these more out-there Beast wars figures. :)

    Make him fight DotM megatron. He must avenge his fallen elephant bruddas.

    i've always thought his robot mode was awful and just super awkward. your adjustments made it really work. amazing what a little extra length and a head that moves can do

    Sucks he lost his combine-abitlity, but as a standalone figure he looks incredible. I particularly love the removable, flexible trunk weapon !

    I think he has two different trunks. Flexible parts don't go well with paintjobs :confused: 
    And the S-shaped one looks a bit slimmer.

    Wow, you made this guy 100 times better. Love the added height and improved proportions. Nice sculpting work on the alt mode. Your work never fails to impress.

    As this is a commission and not combinable anymore that's not that likely but nonetheless I'd like to see the whole team customized by you, too, @Unicron9.
