    After the Cybertronian High Council agreed to creat a Cyber-Factory in Detroit,Earth became home to a new Generation.Classified as G2 Transformers,the protoforms utilized a combination of new and old style protoforms.Among these created was Rapido,a speedster who became infused with forestonite gas,giving him the ability to dash at near transwarp speeds for 5 second bursts.Armed with nucleon shuriken,he serves under fellow G2 Autobot,Spark Prime.

    Very nice work, just hearing the name I figured it for Jazz. But you know what, I can really see it working on Prowl now that you've presented it that way.

    Only one minor issue with it, and by that I mean a Minor, minor issue. The sides of Vehicle mode seem a tad empty. While Prowl's Gold stripes wouldn't have worked with Rapido, Perhaps a 19 sticker on the side and alternating pink and black stripes would be able to break up the solidity of the red?

    In any case, this repaint is a impressive setup, I have to applaud the concept again. I'm fairly certain I'm just seeing things, but the headsculpt sorta reminds me of this power ranger like hero called the Kamen Rider.
