    Has anyone tried to customize a G1 Ironhide or Ratchet so that he has a decent looking and proportional body and a head?

    I dont mean just adding the heads that are being sold but something that incorporates the entire van into his robot mode.

    Ive been trying to come up with some ideas but they all end up not quite being what I wasgoing for...

    ...any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!!

    Select the radicons forum, then limit your search to thread titles only and look for Ironhide. then look for Ratchet.

    If you want to mod G1 Ironhide ratchet,
    you need to piece many figures together
    so they can turn into the same basic shape
    as the alt mode. Then you simply tear Ironhide/ratchet
    apart and piece the vehicle mode parts on the figure
    you made and BAM! you have a Cohesive Ironhide or ratchet figure.

    Awesome job MMM!!! That is what the original Ironhide should have looked like back in '84.

    Was it difficult to do the shoulder mod?

    ...ya know...I thought I did a thorough search of the forums and yet I couldn't find pics like that. ...it must be my computer...yea, yea, that's it.

    Thanks for the pic.
