    If you can, try and have the gun fold up to where Frenzy is stored.

    Keep the radiator part, and on the back have it fold out similar to sat Alt Miester's gun

    Kick@$$!! What Rodimus head is that? And, where'd you get the hands?

    And, can the knee mod be done without taking the leg apart? Can you just cut into it like Movie Swindle's mod? Or, do you have to dismantle it?

    We have a winner!

    The hands are from a Gundam that my friend was gonna give to Goodwill. So I'm not exactly sure where they're from.

    And I've found a way for the legs to go so that no cutting is necessary. :D

    cut the plastic just infront of the ball joint post so his head can lean forfard and turn, or cut the plastic besides his head away for the same result.

    Sweet, Give the Short Bus Decpticons all hands!!!

    That is going to be a killer Prowl, you have solved the two biggest problems with that mold, the lack of real hands and the Head!

    Lookin' good man.

    I actually auditioned Rodimus' head for my Prowl custom too, before I decided on that modified Tigatron head. Hey, too bad you don't have Energon Checkpoint from the Prowl/Checkpoint gift-set... that way you wouldn't even have to paint the head white. :) 

    I find you can actually squeeze the hood panels almost completely closed, even with the Barricade head, and it gives him a slimmer torso. His shoulders are still mounted on those swivel posts, but since they move forward and backwards, you can get a nice range of motion out of them with the hood closed more. He can almost reach across his chest that way, even without a rotator above the elbow.

    I see you opted to just use the double knee joint to straighten the legs, instead of cutting a little more clearance into the joint. Almost the same effect, and no cutting!

    Hands look good. They look like they're from a Gundam action figure (I got my hands from a model kit)... are they white on the backs?

    Are you going to move the rear fenders to the legs? Hope to see more! :)

    Just while we're on the subject, does anyone konw why Barricade's right shoulder socket has a notch on the edge, while the left shoulder doesn't?

    Maybe it has something to do with the punch gimmick?
