I give you, RID Prowl with a proper head.
that makes me like that mold now. very nice
Good Idea, looks a little thick on RID prowl but great job of noticing the similar features
squaring up his lower leggs would help. i always thought the leggs were too skinny on rid cars.
That head came from Checkpoint. As soon as I saw the artwork on the front of that box, I knew I had to buy the set just to get the head for this swap.
I tried an alt tranformation for RID Prowl way back in the day to try to get him to look more G1. He looked too fat. Since we now have gotten use to fat TFs ( E. Prime ), this large head may look good for it. What do you think?
Legs are still too skinny, but not much I can do there and still retain his ability to transform.
Lemme know which robot mode looks better. If the alternate one does, I'll go ahead with a hand swap so they'll be on the correct side.
I definitely think he looks better transformed the "correct" way.
You're right, I wish I did think of it first.
I personally think that not only does it look too big, it's also too blocky looking for RiD Prowl's otherwise sleek and slender looking frame.
Did you look at the second pic I posted? He looks like he was hangin out at McD's with E. Prime..
I know I'm gonna sound like a dick when I say this (and I'm prepared for the flamings) but, I prefer the original head. Why? Because he's not Prowl. When they designed him, they didn't have Prowl in mind. It's Mach Alert.
Hey, that looks great! Is that Checkpoint's head? How easy is the switcharoo?
It wasn't too hard. Thing is, the Checkpoint head has a socket and Prowl's head has a ball. I had to use a spare ankle joint ( stick with a ball at each end ) to attach it. The ball that goes inside the body was too small, so I had to wrap a twist tie around it once. Made it snug and it allows full range of motion. There isn't enough room inside the socket to allow the twist tie to bind up or anything.
He looks like Prowl, but due to international copywrite laws, he is not. But we will run around a scream as if he were Prowl.
good idea but i cant forgive his pathetic body
