    Hey all,
    My alt prowl has two right hands. :( 

    Chances of seeing another one on the shelves is pretty slim.

    I kinda remember reading somewhere that most of the alternator hands were the same? Does anyone know which alternator has hands that will work on alternator prowl? Or, does anyone have a spare alt prowl right hand? Any help would be appreciated.

    Matt

    With Prowl being in the next wave of Alts. I would just hold out to get another and repackage this one to return it.

    Problem with Prowl from what ive seen, is that his hands are unique respect the other Alts

    If anything else fails, you could always try to sell it to kitbashers, telling the problem, and maybe a slight discount... yeah, you would loose some money, but it wouldnt be as much as what you paid for him :) 

    Either that, or wait until someone kitbashing one screws the job and ends with a spare hand...

    Aye, many are the same. Sadly, his hands are not in that bunch.

    You should contact Hasbro, they do occasionally send out spare parts in these kind of situations :D

    Now, is it just the left hands, or does he have an entire left arm?

    Because then, we could talk:

    Otherwise, you're rather out of luck until another one comes along. I'm waiting for the same thing myself.

    Actually, I've got two right hands. I'm not sure why I said 'left'.
