    Since I have the Animated Samurai Prowl on preorder from HTS, I decided to turn the regular Prowl I had into an Animated Razerwire.

    The effort was rather minimal since it's just taking the existing Prowl and turning the gold parts into silver/black. The large gold parts next to the windshield and on the gas tank I turned to gray since silver didn't look too good there. The decals are the same ones I used on my ALT and Sigma 6 Razerwires.

    The only bit of retooling I did was taking his hip armor parts, switching them, then turning them upside down so that they resemble jump thrusters. I had to use the Dremel to sand down some of the plastic so the parts stay flush against his hips.

    The swords are from a GI Joe Sigma 6 figure that I just repainted.

    Just a simple minor repaint. Can't say it was my best work either. But since I had a spare Prowl I figured what the heck. :D

    he looks really cool, but it doesn't say "Razerwire" to me. I think Jazz would be a better choice, gives it the right kind of torso so it'll look more "Razerwirey" or something.

    I'm thinking about doing the other parts of the tires in a metallic blue like his swords.

    Oh and Razerwire is not restricted to just cars. He likes to broaden his horizons and not be restricted. That and I didn't have a spare Jazz and didn't want to spend more money. ;)

    Detailed the tires more!

    Pansywire is now complete! Yay! :D 

    Despite my *suggestion* to use the Jazz mold, this mold works surprisingly well. I think the head needs some work (remember, Alt Pansywire has a Silverstreak head that gives him the side vents. This being the case, the Prowl head makes it look like it's missing something to me). Aside from that, you've done a fine job on him. Especially for it not being a paint by number project. :)

    How do I do vents on something that small? I don't have any fancy schmancy laser cutting tools that you have! :p

    To glue your figures together so you can't post any more. Besides you couldn't cut perfect little squares with the most advanced computer guided cutting tool anyways ;) 

    Seriously though, nice job on the repaint, but I do have to agree with RL that it doesn't scream Razerwire to me... maybe a different head would help? I know steal one from a Universe silverstreak :D

    But ... He's ... Animated? A Universe Silverstreak head on an Animated body would be whack!

    Prowl's head was the closest to Razerwire's. And not to be defensive or anything and this is in no way directed at you specifically Curt, but why does everyone feel like Razerwire has to be a car?

    I mean, Prowl was a police car and now he's a motorcycle. Ultra Magnus was a car transporter and now he's practically a tank. Wreck-Gar was a motorcycle and now he's a garbage truck. Soundwave was a tape recorder and now he's a car. Megatron was a gun but now he's a helicopter.

    I just don't see why characters in general have to be stuck to a particular thing. As long as other areas are fulfilled so that even a slight homage can be seen, I'm okay with it.

    I mean sure, Jazz would've been a natural selection to 'bash into a Razerwire since he's a car and has the car chest thing and all, but I didn't have a spare and didn't want to spend anymore money than I had to. I did have a spare Prowl since I have the Samurai one coming.

    I'm just a bit hung up on why a character absolutely needs to be a certain thing. ;) 
    The swords are from a GI Joe Sigma 6 Ninja BAT.

    Because he's not your character; he belongs to us :) 

    Alt Mirage said so. Know your role, or else you may get a pm from supersquads. supersquads whipped Nemesis Predaking into shape really quick. Now NP does all of supersquads whims. Pansywire doesn't stand a chance.
