After watching Five Servos of Doom, and seeing how Prowl ended up, I decided I wanted a "definitive" Prowl. So I spent the afternoon hammering pins and unscrewing things and putting things back together, so I present to you, Animated Prowl: Definitive Edition!! I picked up a second Samurai Prowl for the shield. I might still work on some way to have the wheel split and attach to the arms like it should, but for now this works. As for the rest, I took a regular Prowl and swapped out his forearms (SUPER easy if you make sure to hit the pins from the correct side.), leg wheels, leg armor panels (just cut off one of the tabs so it doesn't interfere with the swivel joint and you can have correct armor AND the thigh swivels!!), torso/waist piece for the grey bit, arm patrol lights, and ninja stars. Whew! When not in use, I store the swords in his backpack. It's tight enough to hold them securely and I haven't seen any evidence of any paint rubbing yet: The swords can deploy a couple of ways: attached to the wheel as usual (on the left of the pic) or tucked under the forearm guard to look like it's popping out of his arm (right) Still transforms just fine to cycle/sidecar, with one addition. Can you spot it? The second wheel stores right on the back! Turns out the tabs that attach it to the sidecar itself are JUST as wide as the gap that Prowl snaps into, so you can get it to fit. It's sturdier than it looks, but it WILL fall off if you shake it. The swords can both fold underneath. And the best part is, once I take the armor off, I've still got a perfectly show accurate Prowl! UPDATE!! UPDATE!! I added some tabs to the second wheel (it doesn't look that bad when you're not two inches away ): Those tabs can slide into the slots on the back: This lets the wheel tab on QUITE securely: EDIT/UPDATE 4/11/09!! Special Thanks to J.T.Silversmith and Solscud007 for their ideas as well, great minds DO think alike! Here is my final version of an Ultimate version of Animated Prowl: Not a lot different in Cycle mode, I swapped the original Samurai Prowl lights back on and painted them to match the show, and trimmed down the windshield a bit as in J.T.Silversmith's mod. Also used JT's method of dremeling out the helmet, so I can use the original head! So now Prowl in robot mode is about as perfect as you can get without molding anything yourself! And the final armored up version! Change from previous are just the windshield so you can see more of his face, and the helmet. I had a minor accident while dremeling out the inside in that while trying to make room for Prowl's original head crest, I completely melted out one of the eyes attached to the helmet. I attempted to fix it with parts from the donor Samurai Prowl, to no avail. But oh, happy accident! A little clearing away of material and Prowl can wear the helmet with his own eyes looking out! The upper crest of the helmet sits a little further out than a normal helmet would if you look at it from the side, but Prowl no longer has the bug-eyes!* I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. I considered going ahead with modding the wheel, and I've figured out how to make that work, But the animation model makes it look like he's got a full wheel on each arm, and I like the way it looks. So, done. I'm pretty proud of the final product, and again, while I did most of this of my own accord, I do thank Solscud007 and J.T.Silversmith for the ideas/help that I got from their own modifications. Man, you guys are going to make a Radicon out of me yet! *Sorry about the bug-eyes thing. If you need me, I'll be in my office.
