    just a quick custom for my collection, had an extra siren head from the sick kids project, but it was too small for the jazz mold, so i took my extra prowl and smokescreen and swapped some parts and painted it, still a wip, will be for a while, but here it is

    thanks g1-junkie for the idea, never would have thought to use the head on this body even when i had already swapped the unpainted parts to the right colors lol

    thanks, i wanted it to be different than prowl in more than just color, also thinking of removing the turn signals and adding in amber ones from an old model kit
    thanks, yeah the windows are tinted red, i still wanted them to be translucent, i am actually surprised that the head fits so well being in animated style, but i guess the head for him was always slightly cartoony

    been looking over these pics and finding the defects to perfect them, especially around the windshield

    The head really manages to blend in with the Classics aesthetic well, even though it was designed for animated. Looks really nice :D

    thanks, i was pleasantly surprised when i put the head beside the mold
    some of us have tried, but i dunno where it's going
    thanks, the touchups are done, and when the decals are applied, i think it will be good
    there will be a full gallery once he's complete, right now is just a sneak peek

    Wow dude, that's gonna turn out really nice!!
    Does the head hinder the transformation at all?
    I like how you have the doors in bot mode :)
