You should probably take a picture of him trying anyway, just for the lolz.
Special Thanks to J.T.Silversmith and Solscud007 for their ideas as well, great minds DO think alike!
Here is my final version of an Ultimate version of Animated Prowl:
Not a lot different in Cycle mode, I swapped the original Samurai Prowl lights back on and painted them to match the show, and trimmed down the windshield a bit as in J.T.Silversmith's mod. Also used JT's method of dremeling out the helmet, so I can use the original head! So now Prowl in robot mode is about as perfect as you can get without molding anything yourself!
And the final armored up version!
Change from previous are just the windshield so you can see more of his face, and the helmet. I had a minor accident while dremeling out the inside in that while trying to make room for Prowl's original head crest, I completely melted out one of the eyes attached to the helmet. I attempted to fix it with parts from the donor Samurai Prowl, to no avail. But oh, happy accident! A little clearing away of material and Prowl can wear the helmet with his own eyes looking out! The upper crest of the helmet sits a little further out than a normal helmet would if you look at it from the side, but Prowl no longer has the bug-eyes!*
I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. I considered going ahead with modding the wheel, and I've figured out how to make that work, But the animation model makes it look like he's got a full wheel on each arm, and I like the way it looks. So, done. I'm pretty proud of the final product, and again, while I did most of this of my own accord, I do thank Solscud007 and J.T.Silversmith for the ideas/help that I got from their own modifications. Man, you guys are going to make a Radicon out of me yet!
*Sorry about the bug-eyes thing. If you need me, I'll be in my office.
Good work, and excellent Ghostbusters reference.
how do you get his wheels off so you can switch them?
I just switch the whole lower leg, it's not that hard to take off
Awesome job, I was thinking of doing that.
Apparently, it fits onto the activators version.
Anyway, it seems your pics have gone dead.
