    So recently I returned to collecting Transformers, and decided to begin customizing my figures as I get them. Ironhide is by far my favorite character, and this 2007 movie line toy is no exception. The second wave of figures included the Premium Series, which featured a slight redeco with paint apps and changes to bring out details on the toys. Unfortunately, this particular figure never had a lot of detail on his head sculpt or exoskeleton. I set out to make Ironhide look as screen accurate as possible, and I did that by using Elmers Metallic Gold and Silver paint markers. For his chest armor ( front bumper ) I used Apple Barrel brand acrylic paint in Jet Black, with the Silver Metallic paint marker for detail. I used Folk Art Metallic Sapphire Blue for his eyes, and finished it up with a wash using Apple Barrel Silver Metallic as well.
