    Like most who found out at OTFCC, Sunstreaker came with either two R or two L launchers. Because I don't have the luxury of trading with other fans at the con, I thought I would get a random Prowl to scavenge for his launchers.

    Problem: OTFCC Sunstreaker's launchers are pure, teeth-whitening white. As I recall, RID Prowl's launchers are off-white. Is this memory incorrect?

    To those that have either RID Prowl, RID Super Prowl, or Universe Prowl, which one sports the WHITEST launchers? Or are they all off-white?

    The legacy of Glen Hallet continues to wreck havoc on innocent TF fans. :throw

    Try to get a Mach Alert. The plastic on him is definitely white compared to the plastic of RID Prowl.

    I just went upstairs to my Fortress of Toyitude and compared RiD Prowl, CR Super Mach Alert, OTFCC 'Streaker, and OTFCC 'Swipe. (I don't have CR regular MA, RiD Super Prowl, or Tribal Tattoo Prowl.)

    CR SMA's launchers are decidedly off-white, almost to the point of being beige. RiD Prowl's are ever-so-slightly less white than the OTFCC twins'. I had to stand directly under the light to see the difference. I'd say, unless you're very picky, replacing the missing one with one from RiD Prowl should be OK. Or just replace them both.

    Alternatively, give him TFU Inferno's launchers. The black would probably look good!

    Hell, I got the correct Sunstreaker launchers and I did that. Universe Inferno(/Red Alert...c'mon now) was kinda meh, particularly in bot mode, so Sunstreaker stole his launchers. The white ones look good on Sideswipe, but out of place on Sunstreaker. The black ones just look..right.
