    Prowl!
    I've tried to keep myself from posting anything on this idea, but I can't do it anymore. This is a pretty ambitious custom, especially for me. Now Jolt won't be turning into TFA Prowl exactly, but rather getting his color scheme. I still need to find a light rack to fit him, a new head, and some police S.W.A.T. decals, but I will keep you posted as things move foward. I would have posted pics of what I've done so far, but right now he's in pieces hanging up while the primer (Krylon Camo Ultra-Flat Black, thanks Frenzy-Rumble!) So for now, just imagine Jolt in these colors.

    I was originally going to use Blazemaster to make Prowl, but the dude's got no friggin hands!! Then, I got to looking at Jolt with all of his car panels, and I thought of the shields that S.W.A.T. officers use. Then it was pretty clear.

    He's been drying for over an hour, so I put him back together a bit for a pic. And yes, I know he needs a second coat, I have to go outside to paint and it's dark here.

    The torso is just about done, just need to touch up the white circles. God, that Krylon Camo Ultra-Flat makes for an awesome primer! He's been base coated in Tamiya Gun Metal (Fantastic color!), then accents of gold, black metallic, and white.

    And a mock up of the alt mode. I'm trying to keep the gold to a minnimum here. The pics don't quite do justice to the contrast between the metallic black and the metallic gold.

    Camo rather than Fusion paint? Looks like priming with Camo certainly is better than regular 'ol Fusion, I'll have to give that a try.

    What kind of head are you planning to use?

    For right now, I've modded Jolt's head, but I'm open to suggestions. As for the paint, it has Fusion technology in it, so it bonds very well.

    It's not textured, but it is a bit rough. May want to sand it.
