    With the new MP's getting smaller they should fit perfectly with the Autobot classics cars so I've decided to reshell Prowl, Bluestreak and Jazz.....Hound, Mirage and Wheeljack look fine to me as is. Starting with Prowl (and Bluestreak hot on his heels) I got a 1/32 Datsun 280zx shell and after a bit of cutting, lining up and gluing this is where I am:

    He transforms perfectly but a few things are drying at present so car pics will follow with next update.

    Hope you all like :)

    I figured that the new MP scale would be closer to Alternator scale...that being said, your Prowl looks AMAZING!!! I can't wait to see more pics! I've always loved Prowl's G1 design...unaboob for the win!

    Do you plan on improving the head articulation?

    I always felt the stock figure would have been better with a ball jointed head.

    Nah....if MP Sideswipe is the size of the Alternator Subaru mold then classics will be perfect next to him as he was always bigger than them......to me at least. Yeah the Datsun Prowl/Bluestreak is my fave by far.....cheers man!

    Cheers dude, I was thinking about cutting them off but they are growing on me big time now.

    I wasn't lol but now you've said it I might look into it!

    Cheers man :thumb 

    lol thanks dude, wait till you see the '84 group shot :drool:

    Frickin' AMAZING. I love it!!! :thumb 

    I'm a little surprised that you didn't start from the RTS Jazz mold for this project. I would have thought he'd be better to work with, but this turned out fantastic! Your "classics" shelf is lookin' damn sexy.

    Now give him the Kreo head. :)

    The new MP scale doesn't flow with Classics, Sideswipe is too big compared to the Classics cars and he's supposed to be the same size as the others.

    I like this look though, the tilted pointed doors really hit it for me.

    Cheers man! I'll try to get one done tonight.....otherwise it'll be sometime tomorrow.

    That's not a bad idea man, he also has the 'HIGHWAT PATROL' door stickers I'm missing.

    Cheers! I'm planning on doing a Porsche 935 reshell with the Henkei Jazz soon.

    Not on the scale hymn sheet I'm singing to.....as seen here:

    [​IMG]

    Sideswipe/Sunstreaker are slightly taller than Prowl/Bluestreak etc then Ironhide/Ratchet/Trailbreaker a little taller again. That means Prowl is perfectly scaled to MP12, who is in turn perfectly scaled to iGear Ironhide/Ratchet as he should stand inbetween them.

    Thanks tho :)

    Can't wait to see Jazz. Suddenly wondering if I should get ambitious and pick up a second one to try this with.

    You and me both! Got another MP Swoop and Shockwave to do first and then it's all on Jazz :ev: 

    Do it tho, this was a fun project and he looks real good next to a Datsun Bluestreak too :) 

    Cheers man :)
