Ironhide Week Part 7

“Hmm. Haven’t seen this’n yet.”

*Meanwhile.*

“It just seems so familiar…”

.

*SEGUE!*

.

“You sure you want to watch this?”

“You betcher bolts Ah do! Wait’ll you see how good things were in mah day.”

“So, you’ve seen it before?”

“You kiddin boy? I lived it!”

.

.

*9 Minutes Later*

“You okay, old buddy? … Ironhide?”

.

“Not cool, man! Not cool!”

.

.

*Later…*

.

*TF KICK Noise!*

.

“You’re making a mistake, Autobot! We’re not even from the same continuity!”

“Hrrm.”

.

*CHOPPY!*

“Oh, not this again…”

.

.

“I can help you, Autobot, if you can help me.”

“Heh…”

.

.

*LATER STILL*

.

*THWACK!*

 

 

.

*ONE FIGHT SCENE LATER…*

.

“But, you’re an Autobot! What of mercy?!”

.

“… Heroic nonsense!”

*BLAM!**YOUR FACE!*

.

“Uh, let’s watch this one instead.”

“Live action?”

“Yeah. You’re awesome in it.”

.

.

Those of you that’ve seen the movie will get that better than those who haven’t. Ironhide gets killed by Megatron (in gun mode, held by Starscream) within the first 9 minutes.

Well, I hope you enjoyed Ironhide week. Let me know if you’ve got questions or comments. Especially if I made you laugh. :D

  1. Just want to say thanks for the great tutorial (I’ll give it a try when Ironhide comes to the UK), and also for that last comic strip, which was stuffed full of Ironhide rampage-y goodness.

  2. Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.

    Poor Ramjet suffered the worst, though. Shoulder shots are lethal, you know. Even imaginary ones.

  3. Thanks, WV.

    Rodimusdawg, Ironhide is still the same height as he’s supposed to be (about half a head shorter than Sunstreaker and Sideswipe.) Repositioning the crotch piece will give you more height, but Ironhide won’t look right. (He’ll be all torso [with a way too skinny waist] with stubby arms and legs.)

    If you want an example, page 5 has a link to xhairs gallery on tformers, where he uses a transformation that makes Ironhide taller, but with the stubby arms and legs issue. He’s given Ironhide a great paint job, though.

    Really, it comes down to preference. My mods give the most human proportioned Ironhide, but go take a look at xhairs gallery. You might like it better.

  4. was the tf kick noise the clanky, vintage one from G1, or the less clanky, more generic one from later cartoons.

    I MUST KNOW FOR MY ENJOYMENT TO BE COMPLETE!!!!!!

    more seriously, i just got ironhide today, two years late, and i gotta say these mods helped soooooo much. i didn’t do the ball joint bit, ‘cuz i’m broke and i don’t have the parts i need, but i can live with it. i really like him, so much so that i’ve actually got a classics ratchet lined up too.
