Nightbeat: "You have GOT to be kiddin' me..."

---------


This is actually an old kitbash of mine. I started on it pretty much as soon as I got my BT blue Prowl last August. There's not actually much that makes him a kitbash and not a repaint... just the head, really. Every Alt Nightbeat I've seen has used the Sideswipe head, and I just.. didn't like that. At first, it was just a Nightbeat colorscheme on the head. Then I decided to remove the headcrest fins and stick them to the side of his head. And then I decided to take a little strip from his box's clear window and make a little visor. Hope you all enjoy it. :)

That's pretty sweet. I didn't even recognize that as Prowl's head. My only critique would be the forehead. You need to sand that down a bit. Other than that it looks awesome.

I've never actually noticed that before. @_@ The head's just so small, ya know? What do you think... should I just take off the edges that held the Prowl horns or smooth over the rough spots? I could do either, I just wonder which would look better.

As for it being Skids' head... Like I said, I did all of this kitbashing in AUGUST. Skids wasn't available until November, and I didn't actually have mine until New Year's Day. :D Honest mistake, though. Plus look at the chin.

The only bother to me is he's not a Headmaster. O_o;; Other than that no complaints at all. >.>;; I actually like this quite a bit. :)

Yeah, the headtype itself is just fine. You just need to redo those rough spots on the forehead and he'll be perfect.

Loving the way this looks overall. Your paint apps match perfectly with the Acura's blue tone.

This looks fantastic; I love the mods you've made to the head. I too would have had trouble guessing it was Prowl's...
