    Hello!
    This guy is going on ebay in two hours or so!
    Universe/Classics Prowl was used.
    This is my second attempt at this figure/character because I loved doing it first time around. I wanted to add a more grainy, battle damaged look, and give him numerous weapons.
    Paints used were all acrylic, finished with a gloss varnish. Easy to Transform, giving many poses.
    Lots of indentations, scratches and bullet holes have been created.
    I've given this figure has a huge rifle/blaster, a spikey sword, and a missile launcher. The cable/wire, and missile can be taken away, then the missile launcher becomes a standard handgun that fits perfectly in his hand. I carefully drilled a hole in the chest/bonnet where the launcher fits. A spare tyre is attached to the back, and two tiny magnets were used.

    That's really kind of you. Thanks.

    Thank you! I bought a kinda soldier/figure who had this rifle. I had been looking for a few weeks for a large blaster, with no luck then out of the blue found this one! I got lucky because it fits perfectly!!
    I drilled some bullet holes for effect, sawn off a part of the windscreen and cut through a few parts of the bumper. But you might be correct, not sure how well the battle damage came out in the photos, and I was tempted to go further with the figure. But once again, thank you very much for your comment. It's appreciated. :)

    Deluxe sized Autobot Spike for the win. I made one too a while back. Hes kind of a pain to do just because of all the mish mash going on.
