    I was just wondering, since I think I'll be getting alert for christmas. I wanted to see if anyone's already done this and had any problems with the heads fitting. once I do it, I'm planning on painting my prowl (the blue one) to look like nightbeat, and touching up alert so he looks more like prowl. I'd love to see some pics of an alert that's been done up to look like prowl. anyone know where I could find such pics?

    The head swap can be done, prowls head has a little harder time fitting in car mode than the original but its do able.

    bambinoprime, I'm assuming you're alex_kingdom on transtopia? I was about to register on that board to specifically ask you a queston about nightbeat. what head did you use? it looks like it's been heavily customized, so I might be out of luck as far as the head goes. nice to see pics of nightbeat already done, although I had the naive thought mine would be the first ;)  yours looks awesome, and I'm going to use it for a template.

    ckhtiger,

    Actually, no I'm not. I go by BambinoPrime on both sites.

    If I recall, Alex mentioned that he used Alt Sideswipe's head on his Nightbeat custom, but to be sure you'd have to ask him.

    Takes some effort to push onto the body. No modification.
