    Many thanks to Radicons regular SteamShield for modifying his existing Blocky Glider head into one that would fit the Ironhide mold.

    Unpainted for now, hopefully my GF will have time to sit down and paint him for me over the weekend. We're debating paint schemes. G1 Tote isn't a very colorful fellow. All white face/visor? White face, silver visor? And black helmet to match the chest, or paint it a gray helmet because the original's head was gray?

    This is a great idea.

    I'd say, match the helmet to the upper arms, light grey face and pale blue visor.
    Or... match the helmet to the chest connector, match the face to the upper arms... translucent blue over silver visor.

    Damn, and I had no reason at all to want the Autobot cars from this line. But Tote was a great little toy.

    Good color choices you ended up going with, I'm planning on getting one of their heads as well, the Crankcase! Whenever it ships at least.
