    The inevitable is done -- predictably by a Japanese modder.

    And whaddya know -- the head swap works both ways.

    (So does the nightstick. Yay!)

    I already know that I'm not gonna do a straight G1-accurate repaint, but I will use this for reference. (Still need to figure out what decals to use on the doors and spoiler ...)

    P.S. If it doesn't work, copy and paste the link.

    Awesome news... I'll most likely be doing the swap for my ALTs...:rock 

    Question is, where could we store the nightstick in his vehicle mode???

    Copy and paste, or drag it into the addy bar. It's worth it.

    I guess you could always store it in the back seat or something.

    I saw these like 2 days ago, they look great. Only gripes, Alert's head looks a bit big for the Prowl mold and I prefer the regular leg configuration.

    Considering I've got two painted repro launchers in wait, that's the least of my worries. :wink:  I've made my piece with not being able to store the extra stuff -- it'll be worth it to have him armed to the teeth in bot mode.

    I'm on the other side of the fence - now that I've actually seen the head swap, I like Alt Prowl as it is designed, even without the leg mod.

    This is why I complain about Alt Ops. Just a chance of a head can make an alt buttloads more appealing.... ok he has a bit of red paint splashed on his shoulders too, but Prowl's mould looks much nicer as Alert.

    Based on the reflection, I'm guessing silver. Or really glossy white, which doesn't make sense (shiny white on flat white?!)

    Wow, the Prowl head really suits the Alert body.
