    I wanted a way to use the alternate labels that Reprolabels made for the Prowl set, plus a few extras from the Smokescreen set, so I found inspiration in a Micromaster. Having a spare Smokescreen, I created Autobot Stakeout:

    That is a gorgeous repaint/mod. The black really makes the blue, pop. As previously said, headlights really look great

    That's perfect.

    So much better than the TFCC Barricade from the same mold.

    Looks cool! Ummm the headlights are just stickers from the Reprolables Smokescreen set, right?

    Thanks everyone for the awesome comments! I'm really pleased with how this turned out... although there are a few rub spots I seem to keep having a problem with, but I'm sure they'll get worked out. Truth be told, I was actually going to wait for the TFCC Barricade figure to come out and use that, but figured it would've been to expensive to do this to and I think the Smokescreen head worked out better.

    As for the headlights, I wish I could take credit for those but they are in fact stickers from the Smokescreen set (as Mega-Prime pointed out) that I didn't use on my Smokescreen as I preferred the molded ones on him.

    So beautiful.

    Was this airbrushed or spray canned?

    Many thanks!!

    Thanks, you should... the mold looks great in black :) 

    Thanks! Black is all spray can, blue is brush. I have an airbrush, I just haven't learned/mastered how to use it yet :lol
