    Everything that has been previewed lately will be available in one or two days.

    This is the long awaited companion set to the Prowl-to-Red Alert conversion set. We call it the "Alert-to-Prowl" set (duh).

    The Prowl head goes onto Alert quite well, but it's trickier than the counterpart. You have to snap on the back of the head first, then screw in the front. The screw is not strong enough to close the gap on its own. Anyone else know what I'm talking about? Maybe someone else can describe it better.

    Anyway... any thoughts on this set before it goes live?

    Do the stickers that convert Prowl to Red Alert fit over the Alternator version as well?

    Just curious since I have seen previous pictures of Alternator based Red Alert conversions that have needed to mod the sticker set in order to cover the various paint apps that are slightly different from the Binaltech version of Prowl.

    They do now. We caught on to that problem after the first run. Unfortunately for us we had dozens of BT-only versions made before anyone knew of the problem :) 

    Luckily, there is only one "Alert", so that can't happen this time.

    In that pic, is that Alert's orginal legs with a sticker over the red or did you switch them out with a Ricochet like I did?

    **EDIT** Nevermind, I just looked at my Alert to Prowl and realised that that switch gave him white legs. I want that set to spiffy up my Prowl, but I'm not too keen on the shoulder and hip stickers. I like them better after swapping them with Ricochet.

    Yeah, it's a sticker.

    Say, Greg, what does the bi-product look like? I mean, the Ricochet with red parts. You got pics of that?

    It's ugly. He gets grey legs, while his crotch is still white. I used his hood, roof, and rear windows on a Silverstreak to make him anime. Then I put the silver hood, roof, and rear windows on a stripped down Smokescreen. So I have Diaclone and Anime Bluestreak. This left Ricochet with a blue hood, roof, and rear windows, grey legs with red, and a white crotch. I call him Junkion. I'll try to get some pics up this weekend.

    I don't know why, but I find that hilarious :)  I can barely picture it.

    Okay, one more question on that subject... you must be removing the paint apps somehow. What's the best thing to use for that?

    Sorry if this is covered elsewhere.

    Oh my god, this is GREAT! I have a half-converted Prowl Alert that these will help immeasurably. Woohoo! I will order a set for sure!

    Thanks for all the great work, all these Reprolabels sets have really done wonders for my Alt/BT collection.

    Wow, I'm glad you posted this. I had no idea you guys were planning on making this set.

    I am going to do a BT Alert Prowl switch in the next couple weeks. I already have my Alert on the way and I was going to order the regular Prowl sticker set and Red Alert Set next week when I order the BT-15 Prowl. I was planning on painting the red parts, but looks like I won't have to.

    When does this set go up for sale? You can mark me down for one right now along with Red Alert set.

    I already got the Tracks and Jazz reprolabels set. Great stuff!
    Thanks!

    soak the parts in 90% alcohol, and the paint comes off with light brushing via toothbrush. sweet stickers, like the shoulders representing the g1 stickers.

    Well, don't put the paint brush away yet :) 

    There are enough stickers here that you don't technically need paint, but its a lot of stickers, and would just look better if you painted a couple key spots.

    For instance... the top outer corners of the shoulders (or use alcohol to take the red off).

    Also, I suck at transforming BTs, cause I'm a WST guy at heart, and I accidentally scraped off the thigh sticker on mine in the process. That's also a cover up sticker on the side, so again if you just removed that paint instead of covering it, the end result would be more durable.

    Your choice though - like I said, all the cover ups are there, and I spent days making them fit absurdly well :)

    That looks really good. I love my Alert though, maybe if I can find a second for a good price I'll get it and convert it.
    ... Yeah, I think I need to order that new set now. And hope I didn't screw up the doors when I tried to remove some of the paint.

    Cool! I guess I'll be ordering a set tonight. He's the only one of my Binalternators that don't have repro sets.

    By the way, the oversized Superion sticker sheet turned out great. I had to cut a few stickers to shorten them (mainly the wing stickers) but it seems I made a good decision going with 40%

    I'll post a pic of the result in the actual thread once I get around to it.

    Thanks again

    this one is kinda cool...almost makes me want to order alert to do the conversion....any plans for more conversion to decepticons? i really wanna order the tantrum set, just havent found a rollbar recently...but i think itd be cool to redo jazz as another stunticon...probably breakdown, as doing a huge maroon color change would be too much....or just making anyone else into a Dcon...they need some help with their ranks (even though they are more powerful)
