    Here is my alt prowl I just finished. It is basically just a repaint, with a couple of changes. Namely shoulder gun, new seats, leg reversal, and the lambo door mod. My theme was basically that he was modeled after a retired police cruiser (where I live they are popular sources for hotrods). Hence the rims, brakes, seats etc.

    the figure himself is done, but I will probably add a few more things. Mainly like some panels to go behind the glass on his legs so they don't look so hollow, and a more American paint job and remove the lights. Also I need to make up his plates, but I'm waiting for the paint to completely cure first.

    I'm just glad to be rid of the baby blue and mother of pearl plastic colors. :rip 

    Here are the pics. Any c&c are welcome. :D

    Just for the hell of it, here is a group shot of the three custom alts I have now. the Suby mold is still a WIP though (hence the unpainted rifle)

    prowls gun is the Minicon (Cybertron) Checkpoint, I just modified the original handle to open to one side, rather than to both so that an alt could hold it, and his shoulder cannon is from some powermasters figure.

    Surge(Rollbar)'s guns are Energon Hot Shots rifle (and radar dish) and the vulcan is from the Gundam Wing HeavyArms kit.

    The Suby (Unnamed at this time, formerly Ratchet) has a modified G2 Hero OP gun, and shoulder cannons from a knock off beastwars toy.

    hope that helps. :D

    Wow! I love it! Painting Prowl's helmet and upper arms a solid white makes a HUGE difference!

    Thx guys. I'll have to remember to post a thread with the pics of my jeep one. I finished him a few weeks ago, before I joined this forum.

    the trim around the front grill(if that what you meant) was really easy. just took the black paint off of the grille. it's chrome based since it's cast with the lights. simple little mod that really adds to it. IMO

    lol. ya it was a pain to do though. I don't have the tools I need to remove pins, and I'm in a dorm so no rattle can paint, so I just used testors paint and a lot of time. Came out good though. I would highly recoment doing this to all prowl owners. because it really made the difference for this figure to me.

    once he is finished ( just need to paint his gun, and do all the detail blue on him) I'll be sure to post him up.

    Can the Lambo doors swing down the back in robot mode???

    And that black one looks very close to something else I've seen... Can't quite place it...

    nope. but if you somehow managed to get the hinge (would have to make a custom one) to extend, and rotate the full 90 degrees it could be possible. personally I like the shoulder pads. :lolol 

    ya, when I was about half way through with doing the silver on mine, I saw someone on transtopia post something almost exactly like it. that's the main reason I am redoing some of my colors. last thing I want to do is be acused of stealing ideas. I can't remember who the member was, but I remember seeing those pics and thinking that great minds think alike. :D
