    Here's Streetwise!

    He's built from a TFU Prowl mold. Removed all the graphics and paint, and gave him a new coat of white paint. I don't think I need to mention...he's all enamels :)  White is a PITA to paint, and never gets easier...
    I also installed the "Jin/Barricade" light bar on his roof (there's a link to that video at the bottom of this thread)

    The head comes from Twin Twist or Top Spin I think...put it on a ball joint too. I wanted a head with cheesy police style visor type look to him, whilte retaining the police-ish-ness look of the entire robot. The hands stay in place and fit into alt mode. These too, are from a 1/100 Gundam set.

    The decals were created in Illustrator, from MANY online references...I wanted something a little more modern for the "POLICE" on the doors.

    Anyway, here he is....

    Other than Defensor himself, I was looking forward to this one the most because I wanted him to look as different from Prowl as possible. I love the decal work as well as the head sculpt and lights. Are they LED's?

    Yep, the LEDs are the same one everyone and their mother was installing on Barricade last year. $1.00 LEDs with batt pack set up and button...how can you beat that?

    Not bad, I like the detail of the "Cybertron Police" on the side.

    Using a Jumpstarter head for this is perfect! It came out great and definitely is enhanced by the decal work. Gorgeous all around, but the head cinches it for me.

    That looks great. The head and decals are awesome, but I really love the way you've transformed the "wings" so they don't just look like Prowl's. Very slick.

    Looks great!:thumbs2:  I do like blades better so far, but that's just because I prefer the 'copter alt mode. I do think you did an excellent job woth the police decal on the side! Do the doors normally tilt up like that? I don't own the mold yet, or is it part of the mods needed for Defensor?:thumbs2:

    Looks really good... I was uncertain about using this same mold for Streetwise, but you made it different enough from Prowl.

    Also I'm amazed that Jumpstarter head fits scale-wise with that body... I never would have thought they'd be compatible, since Jumpstarter heads I think of being more Voyager scaled...

    Not sure if it "says" Streetwise to me, but it does look good (and that head looks like a good base for Nightbeat as well... hmmmm)

    Holly mother of god. I swear F_R, u and Pitvite are such inspirations to me. Your custom combiners are just amazing. So much so I'm surprized you guys haven't been given offers to go work with hastaktom. Great job on this and blades, and genious work with the gundam hands, they allow for more fun in posing.

    this looks great, much better than prowl. the hands looks a tad too big in some pics though.

    i can't wait to see defensor!

    I love the decals. a LOT. but I really don't like that you left the bumpers black, as in robot mode it makes it look too much like Prowl, save its head. :(  I might want a copy of the decals for near-future use though ;)
