    What a week! I'm literally 1 clear coat away from finishing 2 projects, but the damned AZ heat won't let me Testor's Gloss Cote them (Alt's shuld be Gloss Coted IMO, makes em' look like..well, cars! :LOL)

    So, I Future finished this guy and finished the pics. It's a repaint of Classics 2.0 Prowl, head swapped and painted to be out G1 buddy in need of a lil anger management, Ricochet. Partnered with his Nebulon partner Nighstick, he's ready to kick but and take names!

    His hands are from the TFTM Wreckage figure (they slide in the slot with just a lil sanding...who knew!). The head is mounted on a ball joint for all the looking up and down and side to side he may need to do. Nightstick had a small clip added to his underside so he can mount to his alt and robot modes, as well as being handheld and just running around on his own when he gets transformed.

    I whipped up his decals and there ya go. I went a lil' gold heavy, but I think it works for him. I also left him glossy from the future, I think the shiny looks fits him. Enjoy! Comments and critiques are welcome! More pics HERE

    Thanks to the Radicons Nellie131 for the inspiration, and my boy Lion for hooking me up with Nighstick. :thumb  Right now it's 12:56 am and it's just under 100 degrees here in AZ. It may gt down to 90 by 2 or 3...wish me luck!

    Truth be told I've never been a fan of the Ricochet color scheme, but your take on him looks awesome beyond AWESOME.

    Awesome job (did I mention it's awesome?)!

    Exactly what I wanted to write when I saw this earlier at 4am. Everything looks fantastic, great paint and Nightstick on spoiler is a win.

    However, yeah man, what's up with the hands? They don't seem articulate, nor is it a peg hole....

    All you guys making Jazzes out of Prowls will be extremely pissed when Generations Jazz arrives. In a good way, of course.
