    Well after over a year, and some VERY patient awesome guys, the trio is finally finished!

    First off, if anyone has ANY questions about what went into this build, from the brand of styrene I used, to the final paintjob, please go here:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/tutorials-how-tos/646924-masterpiece-prowl-how-i-build-jarrod.html
    I think I've done a pretty thorough job of documenting the whole process.

    I've got over 100 photos to post here, I wanted to make sure I got everything:)  Please click each of the thumbnails below each post to see them all. Not every photo will be included in the body of the post.

    There are 3 different Prowls represented below. In vehicle mode they are all near identical, save for the Autobot symbol on the one rear window. So, the vehicle mode shots are a mix of all 3, if you happen to notice any inconsistencies.

    Prowl #1 features a toy accurate paint job in robot mode, Prowl #2 is mostly toy accurate with some extra white on the feet, and finally Prowl #3 is heavily cartoon accurate.

    So anyway, here we go!

    Vehicle mode:

    Transformation (featuring Prowl #2):

    Open and slide out doors. Unclip rear/feet from roof and each other.
    [​IMG]

    Pull arms up to clear bumper, then swing out on fender joints
    [​IMG]

    Flip down chest filler piece, and open up the sides.
    [​IMG]

    Swing down lower body to meet up with the chest
    [​IMG]

    Straighten out waist section, then rotate entire lower body where waist and abdomen meet.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Slider down lower legs, then rotate rear windows onto the shins
    [​IMG]

    Fold feet down, the slide foot forward at the ankle.
    [​IMG]

    Unfold the panel from underneath the foot, and flip it up to cover the rear of the foot
    [​IMG]

    Fold the seats up against the roof, and fold the roof down.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Open the hood, and then flip the neck and head out.
    [​IMG]

    Flip down the center piece of the hood.
    [​IMG]

    And before the hood is clipped back down, open the panels on the back. Lower the hood into place, making sure the center hood panel fits into the hollow chest section. Then fold the panels closed.
    [​IMG]

    Now, lower the neck into place, and rotate the head.
    [​IMG]

    Slide the roof in closer to the body
    [​IMG]

    Rotate, and unfold the arms.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And lastly, rotate the small detail/mechanical piece in the shoulder into place

    Robot Mode, continuing with #2.

    Without weapons:

    A close-up of the gun and launchers:
    [​IMG]

    The launchers clip on to the roof hinges
    [​IMG]

    And fully armed
    [​IMG]

    The launchers are on ball joints, so they can rotate side to side, and up and down. I think they look best angled up and slightly out
    [​IMG]

    Prowl is, of course fully articulated, including double jointed elbows, hinge and ball joint wrists, and two knuckles in each finger.

    Here's the Robot mode for #3. They white lower legs are a striking difference from the black of the previous one. The abdomen areas is also painting in a more cartoon styled scheme. I think this one is my favorite.

    This one has shoulder launchers as well.

    And finally, a few shots of #1, featuring all black lower leg and inner feet

    Just some random close ups and alternate shots. There might be some doubles in here from the previous two posts.

    I love this.

    That transformation is crazy. The backs of the feet and the way the interior folds up is crazy.

    Dear lord, that is beyond incredible. The proportions are excellent, seeing how much he folds out compared to Alt Prowl...I mean, Alt Prowl is larger car, but your MP Prowl is a larger Bot...clearly the transformation is at part with HasTak if not better than what they're up to lately.

    A1 my friend, A1!!!!
