I'm solidly in the camp that thinks the deluxe Prime Ironhide/Kup mold is a lot of fun. I'm also in the camp that hates the AM stickers with a passion. This is the first AM figure I've picked up where I felt compelled to add some paint apps. I used the concept art as a guide for painting him (and a few slight color changes). The only thing I left out was the yellow/orange stripes, because I don't have the patience and skill to do smaller and thinner lines and keep them clean and straight. Plus, I think he looks fine without them. My only semi-disaster was heating up the pins to remove the fake windshield from his chest in order to paint behind it. Turns out my soldering iron heated up much faster than I had realized, and in turn, melted part of the shoulder surrounding the pin. Somehow, I was able to fix everything and maintain the same range of motion from before the melting. It's not pretty, but that area is also always covered up, so unless you go looking for it, you'll never see it. I hope you guys enjoy it! C & C are always welcome.
