    OK so I think this went fairly well for my first try. I used Axer because I had two of the set, Sideways to follow. My first thought with Axer is a police bike so I then thought of Prowl. Not original but I went for one easy and simple for my first. Any pointers or advice is more than welcome.

    Thanks. I like your Cybertronian patrol. The Police on the windshields, moto's and numbers are great. Wish I had thought of it.

    Thanks for the props man :)  I've actually changed the name to "IACON POLICE", of which I have updated the label designs and such for.

    "to protect and to serve" is essentially the motto of the American police in reality, which is where I draw my source from there (I credit myself with research only there :lol ). The rest is my original design :) 

    The G2 molds for the bikes are really excellent (I've had plans to make some customs out of the Sideways mold, though nothing like the cool custom Jazz you've made in your other thread), but just hadn't gotten to it.

    For my purposes (Alternators/Binal Tech customs), I wish the mold were 1:24 exactly, but I can live with this/I] mold being oversized. The Energon Arcee mold is closer [this G2 mold is probably a bit closer to 1:18 truth be told) and I'll be doing more customs with that mold later down the line as well. Both molds are small enough to convey the size variation I want for my customs (Alts/BTs larger than motorcycles). Oddly enough, the original BT designers wanted to make 1:18 scale Harleys integrated in the BT line, but the idea was scrapped (/useless trivia).

    Again, props on your work, man! I remember what it was like painting my 3 bikes white! It was a pain, but worth it ;)

    Looking at the pictures I was originally expecting this to be a custom of Groove, not Prowl.

    But good job nonetheless. Getting all that white paint onto a pure black toy must've been a complete pain in the ass.

    I did this into Groove as well, I think its a really cool little mold!!
    just noticed in your pics that from head on in bot mode the bikes forks are kind of reminiscent of prowls shoulder missiles. Me Likey!!
