    So this is the latest custom ive done, this is my take on a Chug version of Energon Snowcat using the Siege Ironhide figure with parts from a original Snowcat figure. Most of the work was cutting out the wheels and replacing them with the tracks from Snowcat.

    Thoughts?

    This is awesome. Super well done. This is one of those customs where I can’t help but think it should be officially produced because it is SO GOOD of an idea. This looks amazing. You rock! Also now I want to see you do this custom again, only in the black and orange colors that the Snowcat figure got through KB Toys.

    This is absolutely amazing. I liked the Snowcat mold a lot, so this is up my alley.

    I agree with this too.

    Extremely well done! take it from someone who absolutely HATES Snowcat (so much so that I have two that hang out in my parts bin, NOT on my collection shelves) - now I will need to buy another Ratchet/Ironhide and build one these myself.... it seriously looks like official product! Such an inspired idea, thanks for sharing!

    This is seriously perfect!

    the Ironhide mold was MADE to be Snow Cat

    and your work looks downright official.
    Amazing job!

    Wish this was official so I could buy one haha.

    -adds it to the list of customs I’ve seen on here that are more interesting than anything Hasbro has brought out recently. Alongside Siege Hound into RiD Strongarm-

    Totally the sort of retool I could see done for Hasbro Pulse... 20th Anniversary for the Unicron Trilogy's first show, Armada is coming up... Could see them visit a few figures and make some retools/repaints worth selling online.
