Man, I'd love to see more Animated homages in the Generations line. Great work.
I dig it. I've been working on a CW Autotrooper team for a while myself (just some detail work left), so I love seeing others' take on the idea. My only suggestion would be to paint the red "EMERGENCY" stripe down the side black as well, but it still works well as-is.
Except that Autotroopers were originally a Binaltech/Kiss Players creation...
From what I understand, they actually have this exact thing in Shattered Glass, as reverse counterparts to the Sweeps in G1. Prowl was given a similar body, so if you're going for a full set maybe use the pickup-truck version?
Looking really good! Almost makes me wish that I picked one up while they were still in stores to try and do something similar.
Also, just to toss it out there,there are auto trooper heads for CW figures on shape ways made by another forum user. Maybe they could work for your custom here? You can find them here: CW Auto-fodder (Deluxe Scale) by Tresob on Shapeways. That is, if you want. It would at least be something different from the First Aid head. Regardless, It's a great looking figure as is. You did an excellent job on it!
I used these heads for my team: Autorooper Head For Combiner Wars Prowl by chanponman on Shapeways and Autorooper Head for Combiner Wars Rook by chanponman on Shapeways
Excellent heads, but they're more for the aforementioned Kiss Players/Binaltech-style 'troopers.
Technically, those were "autoroopers".
And since these aren't cars, and, y'know, OP posted the animated bio, I'm considering it an Animated homage.
On a side note, has anyone tried repainting animated Prowl from either version of CW Groove?
I did, out of the smaller Groove - Denebian's Customs
I second this - it looks good as-is, but would look even better if the red stripe was also black.
Awesome! Please do Prowl in that mold as their boss
