    When Impactor hit the store shelves, my kiddo starting asking backstory questions about him. We've been digging into the Wreckers storyline in the comics lately and noticed there's quite a few we're missing official figures for. So here's the remedy for one of them: Officially unofficial keeper of record and #1 fan for the Wreckers - Ironfist AKA Fisitron!

    Base: Transformers Generations Trailcutter
    Head and Weapon: Shapeways
    Paint: Rust-Oleum & Krylon

    We got a few classics figures when we got the last Bumblebee to make GhostHead and Trailcutter and Hoist were among them. Since we're getting an Earthrise Hoist, you know we'll get a Trailbreaker, so I thought he'd be a good fit for Ironfist. Hoist will be crafted into a Decepticon Shandor Mining tow truck from Ghostbusters 2020 (still working on the name).

    Okay, once I figure out how to turn my Trailcutter into a more LL accurate figure, I am 100% copying this for a Shadowplay flashback Ironfist.

    How well would that Shapeways head fit on CW Swindle's body?

    It wouldn't fit on any CW figure. All CW figures have a ball joint neck, this head is for a flat top pivot.

    I know it wouldnt have knee articulation but... any shots of him with the legs collapsed? it'd make him look far shorter/stockier.

    Two separate ones. One for the head and a Sunlink one for the turret.

    Would it be possible to get some links to these kits so others may perform the same custom?
