Ironhide HISS Tank From GI Joe/Transformer Crossover By JFAK075

This week's TNI Cool Custom is of Custom Ironhide HISS custom, From the GI Joe/Transformer crossover comic by JFAK075.

Here is how JFAK075 describes the making of it:

Ripped from the pages of the GI Joe Vs The Transformers comic. I wanted to make a 1:18th scale vehicle based on the transforming HISS tank, Ironhide.

Parts-
Head: Cast Hard Hero bust
Arms and Abs- down to knees: Unicron
Body and lower legs: HISS tank
Driving lights: $1.00 lights

Construction-
I used the Unicron body as a base because it had the right size, and I felt mated well with the HISS tank. The HISS tanks used were the red Crimson ones (the sets that were out a few years back). For the lower legs I cut and glued two track halves from the HISS tank- one pair for each leg.I used epoxy putty to fill any joints as needed. The driving lights came from an Ace home center.

Aw cool that was yours??? I thought that was one of the best customs in the room. Nice work, even had working lights.

Sadly, he does not transform. Though in this case, I didn't need him to. Not that it would have hurt to make him so. But after two months of work, I had enough of working on one project.
