    Here's another one I made recently, Classics Clamp Down.

    I was sick and tired of waiting for Reprolabels to make stickers for him already, so I finally took matters into my own hands. I took a Classics Prowl reprolabel set and some of my Paint Markers. It was a surprisingly easy job, since all of the painting was on the vehicle mode parts and no huge amount of disassembly was required. I painted the yellow rims of the shield stickers red to match the toy more. Enjoy :) 

    I may update this when I get the Deep Cover KO in the mail to show off the 2 brothers together. I did however, take a pic with Clamp Down and his commanding officer, Prowl

    Thanks!! I'm slowly building this private army for Prowl to command and I'm almost getting goosebumps from the idea!! first Clamp Down, then Deep Cover, then some Autorooper customs I'm planning, then the Protectobots that I'm pretty sure some 3rd Party is making. Gonna be awesome!!

    I really like what you've done.
    I can feel your excitement, which puts a smile on my face!
    Transformers collecting/painting etc should be fun, so your attitude is fantastic! :)

    VERY nicely done. I was trying to track down a "real" set of Clampdown labels from a few sources too, with no lucks, so I may have to just follow your formula, he definitely looks good!

    Looks great! Would be cool if there was something to set his head apart from Sideswipe. Like red horns or something of that nature.

    Did you just freehand the hood scallop or did you use a stencil? It looks nice.

    maybe. I might get that Heroic Duo set, does that give Sideswipe a new head, or just Red Alert?

    This looks great, I may need to totally rip-off your idea, if we don't get a reprolabels set like this soon!

    lol go for it. I don't mind. I just got sick and tired of waiting for a set that seemed so obvious. I want to get one more of these guys and a Sunstreaker head to become a Police Sunstreaker (or Patrol as I'm gonna call him), so I'm gonna be doing a similar paint scheme. might put more black on him to change it up and use some old Diaclone stickers I got from a friend

    As a fan of Clamp Down and Deep Cover, I have to approve of this custom. Nicely done.
