    As soon as I saw the 70s camaro bumblebee toy for the first time, I immediately saw the strong homage to the design for prowl/bluestreak/smokescreen from G1. I've finally decided to put my theory to the test and have started making Prowl. The lights were taken from a junker ratchet platform, I just made a couple small holes for the pegs. I put them on while the paint was wet just to make sure they had a good hold, as I didn't want to glue them incase I found better sirens later on. So now I present for you all to see, my work in progress, the nemesis to Barricade, the keeper of the peace, and judge of fine bavarian pastries....

    PROWL!

    well, I'm not sure how much better the pics will get considering I'm armed only with a webcam. However I can try later tonight. I plan to have the arms done today too.

    So you do plan on finishing up the yellow in black and white. Excellent. I like the light bar!

    So far car mode looks pretty cool

    Better camera work will make your work stand out way more. It would do it more justice IMO too

    Car mode looks really like G1 Prowl. Great job. On the fourth picture in, does he have a shoulder cannon?

    actually he has both shoulder cannons mounted just as the toy is designed to do, also just like G1 prowl. They will soon be gray/silver. I've now got the upper legs and right arm done, however it's late and I'm too lazy to take pictures. I should have them up in the morning.

    By the way, I'm suprised nobody got the joke.

    remaining silent? get it? bumblebee can't talk, it's funny!

    This looks good, but better photos will really make this piece shine. :) 

    Keep us updated! :thumb

    If you don't mind, I think I'd like to try and copy this(with a few personal tweaks of course).

    I really like this idea, and since I have a spare classics bumblebee....
