    Hello!
    I was watching Autobot Spike with my two kids recently, and my daughter asked if there was an Autobot X figure. I though to myself there's not an official one I'm aware of, so I'll try and do one for you!!
    A Universe/Classic Prowl used. I really tried to get the colour scheme as close as possible. A few pieces to remove, and I added Hound's gun which is held in Autobot X's hand, or attached to the joint where Prowl's window was. An original G1 Hoist missile was also used. I really like the metallic blue used for the head, although I confess perhaps Autobot X's head could/should be slighty bigger than the standard Prowl head. I like this figure, but maybe he looks too much 'Prowl?' My kid was happy with the outcome anyway!

    :thumb  I would love to have Autobot X in my collection. Kinda gets me thinking though, why a third party company hasn't done a Autobot X upgrade for Universe Prowl.

    Interesting use of the mold. He kinda needs more scratches and dents though.

    That is very good. Especially since it's a deluxe figure. It's like a mini-Frenzy_Rumble version.

    Using the parts that you used, does the figure still transform? I always want Spike to transform in that episode.

    Hello Solrac333.
    Actually, yes Autobot X does/can transform. I'll try and get some photos posted. I've only transformed it once. Try and get the photos done within the next 2/3 days.
