    Like Slit Lip and many others, I modified my Prowl to give more of a G1-ish feel. I cut the bumper at the level of the headlights and attached it the front. I also added styrene to his abdomen (see yellow lines) to increase the width because he looked a little thin to me with the wider chest. I filled in the hood area with resin to make it look more like a Z350 and added some paint to bring out the scupting details on the Hasbro mold. The last thing I want to do is decrease the neck plastic (someone has already done that as well). Overall, I really like this Hasbro mold... it has an "Alternator" like feel to it. I think a simple paint job brings out the details and breaks up the white on this figure.

    nice job. Just simply painting the launchers does wonders alone!

    Wow, it's amazing how many of us had the exact same idea for modding this mold.

    Though of course, I guess nobody needed to look any further than IDW Prowl for inspiration.

    This looks really good. I can't wait to do this on mine as well...

    This is more or less what I plan to do to my Prowl in the end, with the addition of one or two paint apps.

    Awesome work.
