Dark Of the Moon: Enforcer Ironhide



Reason:
I ended up getting Ironhide around the time he was just being released for a really cheap deal, hearing all the hype on him pushed me to own one, but once getting it in my hands, i was slightly disappointed, butt flaps, are flaps, glued head and the cannons. I was glad Hasbro finally gave us a big Ironhide, but i guess after seeing what they did to ROTF LDR Prime and Starscream, i got a bit spoiled, as i was walking to the Laptop to post him on ebay to get rid of him, i saw Frenzy Rumble, Zildjian, X-Cal, Encline and others Customs on this figure and they all looked beast. So i said why not, the hardest part of this was figuring out the color scheme. But i am fully inlove with how this all turned out and hop you all dig it too.

*Added a Ball joint neck
*Articulate hands with custom made knuckles
*Re-Positioned chest, calve wheels and redesigned the entire back
*Custom made chest plate
*Plastic bits added to the legs and feet to give it a more accurate movie feel
*Scratch built Arm cannons
*Custom made and painted Rifle w/ grenade launcher & Custom made Automatic machine gun with scope built from scrap parts and Banana clip
*Krylon Fusion Banner red for the base coat
*Model Master Chrome Black added and buffed to hood of the GMC Topkick
*Testor’s One Coat Lacquer spray “Inca Gold” for the G1 throwback
*Robot parts were Sprayed In ultra flat black, dry brushed in 6 different shades of silver from gun metal to metallic
*Thigh flaps and chest were primed in Ultra flat black, dry brushed in gunmetal and hit with a bone white
*Chrome Black and gloss black paint on the rims to give it a black alloy feel
*Silver dry brush apps to base color to give of realism
*Then all sealed in Future Finish
*Due to the mods, he is Non Transformable

Re: Dark Of the Moon: Enforcer Ironhide

That's really good, the only thing you could say was wrong was that it doesn't transform but for something that nice do you really want it to? well just a little bit haha. I also agree the use of movie arcee's chest plate is most clever.

Re: Dark Of the Moon: Enforcer Ironhide

Nice work, I love movie non-formers, once you decide to not transform, the possibilities are endless, loving the articulation and the tires on hips. the feet look amazing, and the mud spatter is perfect. the rifle is great and suits ironhide perfectly

Re: Dark Of the Moon: Enforcer Ironhide

Looks great. I sure did want to see truck mode cause that mud would have made it look awesome.
