    lowered the head, and added some upgrade labels.
    labels are available for $3 shipping inc for canada and USA.

    Nice! Can you explain exactly what you did to lower the head so that others can do it too when they get theirs?

    to lower the head, you remove the head, then tap out the pin that holds the head on. i dremeled the "neck" down as low as i could without compromising the stability to put the head pin back in. you have to shorten the pin with a dremel cutting wheel a few mm now, but when you put it back together, it is nice and stable, fully functional, with no compromise.

    it was in the center, in line with his face, but the paint used was somewhat orange. G1 had the autobot logo in the right side of his chest, and the left had the rub sign. i always preferred it closer to the front and off to the right, so thats what i did to mine. i see a lot of people put the sticker in the center, like they tampo'd it, but still, the paint was orange.....

    wheel_jack here. nice mod on the head. The stickers are a nice touch too.
    I do have a question for ya since you are in possession of one of these. How tall is he exactly? I've got some model kits that are just dying to meet him. :p

    Nice job!

    I was doing cutting on Prowl's head literally 15 minutes out of the package... I trimmed the brow region of his helmet so he doesn't look like he's scowling because someone mashed his helmet down over his eyes. :) 

    I also did some light panel lining, and considered cutting off part of his front fenders so they stay on his chest in robot mode... but I just couldn't figure out anything to fix how annoyingly high his head sits on his torso.... kudos to you! I'm totally doing this!
