    Unusually for me I didn't fancy going the full G1-isation that the Reprolabels set offered, so here's my version of repro-ed up CW Prowl with a bit of added black decal detailing on his forearms.

    It's Reprolabels set but without their version of the car sides panel detailing (the P-09 are deliberately in a different place on mine), some spare white vinyl pieces to fix the break in deco at the bicep, and some black vinyl offcuts for the additional details forearms & car rear roof. Oh, and I recoloured the taillights red with a permanent marker before applying them.

    Shoulder cannons are from Construct-A-Bot Smokescreen (I also have the rifle and another set of them on standby, ready for CW Smokescreen). I may spray the blue parts black later.

    Finally realised I could get the Shoulder cannons black the quick and easy way - black Sharpie and a dab of paint in the nooks the Sharpie couldn't reach! (I also swapped out Prowl's shotgun with CW Smokescreen's who now wield's the CHUG version's collapsible rifle - the Construct-Bot gun was too comically large for him after all.)

    Reprolabels. Where is the best place for quality stickers for a G1 Prowl. I've heard of the company Reprolabels, but I've also heard of a couple more. Best suggestion? And thanks .

    I have a preference for ready-to-apply adhesive stickers, so I tend to use Reprolabels/Toyhax (Toyhax is the former Reprolabels.com since they rebranded and unified their other lines, GI Joe reprolabels & Toy Stages (printed backgrounds for various toylines, etc.), under that single umbrella) plus their products, service and customer aftercare are all excellent.
    If you are more confident or experienced with the application of model decals you might want to look at Eness and/or Ocean Design decals, available from various online retailers, these are AFAIK water slide decals and a little more involved, for the best results you will probably have to invest in a fixative for post-application as with out it they can scratch or wear easily.

    Ebay:
    Are the construct-bots weapons and accessories 5mm compatible? I hadn't considered them as a source of parts, but. based on your Prowl. I might start using them.

    Yes, Pre-Beast Hunters only though and the tolerances vary so sometimes some Future floor polish or other form of adding additional friction may be necessary.
