    Is there any word on Repro making any lables for Prowl? I really like him alot but he need something on his doors to cover up the Japanese on the doors like a yellow star US Police symbol of some sort and also I think he needs something on his chest it just looks a little bare.

    Or you could wait for the Alternator version which will have american stuff on it. Apparently.

    I already have the BT version and is the first one that I think needs stickers to take away that Japanese look. I only collect the BTs.

    For me, I'm hoping they make some Red Alert labels. Despite the kick ass explanations for how things turned out by Mr. Ichikawa, I'mma still gonna headswap the BTA Alert head onto this body.

    Sweet, I don’t go for reprolabels very often (well except for an extra faction symbol every now and then its mostly never) but in this case Prowl just begs to be reprolabelled, he just looks so bare. Very much looking forward to it :thumb

    No, it kind of is. Pretty much anything that's about modding TF's migrates here, sooner or later.

    I am definitely looking forward to this sticker set as I just ordered Binaltech Prowl. I also got direct word from them they are eventually planning on doing a Streak label set to make him look like Anime Bluestreak. I found out as I inquired as to whether or not they would do a custom set or if they had anything like this planned.

    This is how I would like to do things....

    Take Sideswipe's head, and put it on Prowl's body (painted appropriately). Use (hopefully) Reprolabel Red Alert stickers on the Prowl body.

    That's the plan. Of course, no idea if the heads will FIT yet. (Perhaps someone with BT Prowl could check? Anyone?)

    I'm debating whether to use different (larger) police decals and symbols. I'm currently undecided ...

    Would also be nice if BTA Alert could hold Prowl's saber. Most of the red detailing is gonna go, but I might leave some on the shoulders. Weapons will probably get a coat of shiny metal paint. Repro launchers are on order, and I'm debating what color to do the missiles in. And (from the new pics at F2F) it looks like I'll have to do something about the license plate ...

    I'll probably repaint Alert's head either way, as it'll be probably be difficult/expensive to get my hands on an Alt/BT Prowl for a while. The head swap is more long term.

    Of course, we'll have to see how Hasbro is going to handle the final Alternator version of Prowl. He could have different paint lines than the BT version which may require covering up by labels.

    Also, I wonder if Hasbro is going to release Red Alert over here as he is in Japan. I would rather not spend the extra money to import Red Alert.
