    Not much to explain here. BT Blue Prowl + Alt Camshaft = Diaclone Bluestreak

    I was going to claim that the Diaclone Bluestreak had more silver than that, but then I realized I was wrong. The reason I thought that was because DB has a longer hood, and his roof is mostly covered in window, not metal.

    However, if you're planning to do more with it, I would suggest painting the thighs white for more accuracy. Other than that, there isnt a whole lot to add. Anyway, I love the concept since I always thought DB was one of the nicest looking "G1" bots. Good work

    Blue Prowl had grey legs originally. The whole purpose was to put the Bluestreak arms and legs from Camshaft onto a bot that suited him more. Then he had way too much blue, and was too top heavy to stand. So I then replaced the heavy diecast blue hood with the lighter grey plastic hood. I'm happy with him, and he will stay this way.

    How to do what with the legs? Reverse them so the windows face forward? Just take out the 3 screws on the inside of his legs. They then split apart and easily seperate from the upper leg. Then just flip them over and put them on the other leg. Reinsert the screws, and viola!
