    Hey guys, I just picked up Universe Prowl. Wow. The paints sucks. Every since I first saw him, I said 350 z. Here is a picture of a car I painted a little over a year ago. I was thinking of matching it to this Prowl. My Problem is, it wouldn't be Prowl. So, who would look good in this paint scheme? Thanks for the help.

    O.k. So I am liking the idea of the skull face and samuri. Lets do it.

    Well good sir, I have just read his back story. I am now floored. This is at the top of the list, though the list is short for now. It will remain there. The only thing is, the graphics are Egyptian hyroglyphics. But, that is no problem.
    But, you did one right?

    I disagree with you, they're very common meaning he could fit right in. would also help him infiltrate certain circles. Besides, it doesn't really matter, not unless you want to keep him a tank. Otherwise, he can be anything else. The three Alt Bludgeons in our gallery prove it works.

    I'll second a vote for Bludgeon.

    You use those colors on that car in the pic you provided, a head mod (we know you got skills :D ) and you've got another winning custom on your hands :thumb

    Plastic Alternity Bludgeon? XP

    Though since I can't really see ol Bludge as a car, I'm probably more in support of Backstreet. =/

    Mmph. Aren't we actually GETTING a Universe Bludgeon? I'd swear he was on one of the various computer lists. Still, I'm sure the end result will be kickass.

    (Windbreaker or Daytonus, damnit!)

    I like this idea... but I'm thinking that since you're replacing Prowl's face, this might be a good time to offset that huge neck plate on that figure.

    If you molded a longer skull face, the chin could overlap with the neck plate, making the face seem less squashed, and the neck plate less intrusive. Also, if you painted the neck plate the same as the helmet, it could blend with it a bit... perhaps echoing the type of neck armour common to samurai helmets.

    I think this Bludgeon will look cool. Funny isn't it, how everybody interprets Bludgeon based on his pretender shell, rather than his actual true form, the robot that fit inside? :)

    the head on the tank bot inside is very cookie-cutter to me. nothing about it that makes it stand out from other TF heads, and screams, "this is so-and-so".

    Agreed. The reason the "undead samurai" version of Bludgeon is so established in our minds is because his "true form" is much more generic and boring by comparison.

    I hate Pretenders on principal, but I like the idea of Bludgeon being a regular transformer with an undead samurai theme in robot mode.

    (shades of IDW Cyclonus though...)
