Dark of the Moon : Leader Class Ironhide

Postby frenzy_rumble » Tue Jun 21, 2011 2:28 pm

Enter Ironhide. This epic leader class figure is one of my favorites by far. Always have been a fan of Ironhide, and Hasro's done him just with this 9½ inch Leader Class figure from the Dark of the Moon movie. This is a non-transforming representation of the character.

I went to town on this guy. Here's a list of the upgrades and modifications :

- Added articulated custom hands, which pivot and combine parts from the existing fists (brass knuckles!)
- 2 scratch built custom cannons attached to the backs of his forearms, each has 2 LEDs, his left cannon lights up red, his right cannon lights up blue
- repositioned chest truck wheels
- rebuilt head (added larger "wings" on sides)
- Swapped in bright BLUE LED in his eyes
- Head is now on a ball joint
- Face shield/mouth plate pops on using a small, yet powerful rare earth magnet
- Removed some excess plastic from inside the knees allowing Ironhide to stand up straighter and taller
- Custom license plate
- Completely custom built back using all the hacked off parts un-needed
- Working LEDs in front headlights and orange turn signals
- Ankles replaced with ball joints
- Feet rebuilt, added toes and heels

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Damn, if only the mass-produced LC Ironhide looked this good! Then again, if it did, it'll cost at least double the current retail price.

Either way, awesome job!

Holy Allspark that looks awesome.

I love how the guns and the headlights light-up and those bullets going into his machine gun add a nice bit of detail and awesomesauce.

Whoa.
I definitely want to do something like this to mine. I'd also want to find a way to add his shoulder holsters and 'pistols' from the scene against the Dreads.
