Machine Wars was a brief experiment in the mid-1990s that only lasted one year. Still, the few toys that were produced had some very cool features like improved articulation over the G1 cars and "quick transformation" feeatures that didn't sacrifice either mode (unlike the Jumpstarters or Battlechargers).

Ertl's Road Course car was an ideal starting point for Prowl, needing no modifications beyond the paint job. The base color is White Icing by PlastiKote, which matches the pearlescent swirl of the figure's plastic almost perfectly. I hand painted the black section of the car using the toy as a guide, and vinyl tape was used for the stripes. The decals were all custom made and printed onto clear and white-backed stock.
