    I was aware of the Transfusion kit coming out, but it still didn't suit how I remembered Ironhide-so figured I'd just have at it in my own way.
    What were the hip flaps are now a double panel on a hinge. That whole side piece will be painted in the solid dark grey, to look like his body in the toon.
    The front bumper and the lower light section is now on swing arms, so now it just folds up and under, behind the headlights (you can see the chrome of the bumper just there) and I made a new silver piece for the abdomen which is attached to the original piece.

    Wheels-I have 2 options; leave them attached to the butt via a new scratch built arm (Like the newer Xtoys upgrade that's floating about, which, thanks to my ignorance had no idea existed when I started this XD) OR attach them to the double side panel on a swing arm and sling and rotate upwards to sit in the space on his back (Like transfusions, but facing up, so the hubcaps are
    not visible).

    Either way, he is still a WIP. :)
