    I recieved a kiss players autorooper today. I really like the figure. I originally got it to customize into a prowl but not so sure I want to anymore. I was just wondering if anyone has done this and has any pictures of it. Anyone else think autorooper head sculpt could pass as jetfire?

    I haven't been able to find an Alert for less. After getting Autorooper though I like the figure so I am not sure I want to do it. I was going to used reprolabels streetwise and pop a prowl head on it. Just wanted to see if anyone has done it and what the final result looked like.

    Autorooper's face is one of a kind...and the box art too.

    I kitbashed BTA Alert to Prowl I think the Subaru is a far better fit for Prowl, my Autorooper stayed as is. Its currently up for sale BTW. ;)

    I agree that BTA Alert is better to use, cause then you also get a nice Red Alert with the other parts, who looks very cool with the reprolabels stickers.

    Sounds like BTA Alert is the way to go. This was my original plan then use the prowl body w/ reprolabels for Alert. I have the Alert reprolabels already. I will keep my eyes open for a BTA Alert then.
    thanks

    If I can make a suggestion...depending on your scruples and cash flow, it's relatively easy to score Knockoff BTA Alerts and BT Prowls on Ebay. I'm getting one of each, just so I can do the head swap/reprolabel thing without the guilt of altering an expensive toy, for what is largely display purposes to begin with.

    Plus, as far as Alt/BT KOs go, those two are often reasonably good quality, unlike the KO Wheeljack/Grimlocks.

    How does the quality of the KO Alert compare to the BTA Alert?

    I can't answer that authoritatively, since I don't have one yet... but I have one on the way, and I'll try to remember to post something about it when I do. XD
