Great! Though where is shoulder cannon for Prowl?

Hmmm...now that I have studied some facts, seems that cartoon&comic version seldom had cannon, but the toy version had. Same goes his Generations version. Anyways, those look really worth buying.

Fantastic!

MP-10 was to be my only super-pricey Transformer. But I'm tempted. Prowl or Bluestreak? Bluestreak or Prowl? Both...?


Question: is it right to assume that these guys will have translucent eyes like the Takara MP-10, and painted baby-blue for the possible Habsro release?

SOLD on Prowl. Looks fantastic. I wonder what sort of unique accessory(ies) may be included besides his gun and shoulder rockets?

Simply amazing. It's been awhile since we've seen TFs so universally acclaimed. I'm really looking forward to these, even moreso that Sideswipe. The Fairlady always was one of my favorite cars, and Prowl is probably one of my top-10 Autobots.

Okay, so after a day to digest these images a few minor gripes...

I don't like how the bicep has a huge cut out socket in it, and the fact that it is black on both bots makes it worse. That black piece that hinges below the deltoid and extends into the bicep should be white plastic to match the bicep color, not black. MP Sideswipe has the same thing going on. It takes a way from the G1 look of it.

The upper-arm delts are a little elongated over all...they should be more square. I think they did that because the wheels look huge on their arms...

Second, Bluestreaks cannon were never that thick. It looks cool how big they are, but not exactly G1 accurate.

Lastly, I curious to see better res. pics because Blustreak's head sculpt looks pretty good, but something about Prowls head sculpt seems off still to me....

Nothing major though...still buying both.

Foolish to gripe about these at all. 10/10 I am in awe about how accurate these guys are. Love how they did the lower legs. Right out of my memories!

I was going to skip these two and only get Smokescreen, but after seeing official pics I couldn't resist and went ahead and preordered them on BBTS.

I think I'm going to collect every single non-exclusive MP that Takara comes out with from now on assuming they keep doing things the way that they are. These are absolutely perfect renditions of the G1 cast.

Now I just need to clear a shelf or 2 so I can keep them all together :P.

Damn you Takara! I was going to skip these. Now I have to shell out $80 for Prowl, $80 for Bluestreak, $80 for Smokescreen and $2,000 for a divorce lawyer.

Come on Hasbro...bring these to the U.S. shelves for a reasonable price! My $70 MP Grimlock looks like a steal these days.

All griping aside, these look awesome. We're going to see eBay flooded with Generations/Classics Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen listings between now and the summer!

They misspelled patrol on Prowl. It says "Patorol." :lol: :lol: Hopefully they get that fixed when he's released. Otherwise, he's perfect! :D

You can blame the kana. ;) The romanization of "Patrol" would be "Patorol," because Japanese is all symbols.

Not quite. Long story short, Japanese speech is syllabic in nature (meaning, no standalone consonants except for "n"), but they do cheat with "u" and "i" kana, with those vowels being nearly silent. However, those vowels distort the "t" sounds into "tsu" and "chi", so "to" is used instead. Otherwise you'd get "Patsurol" or "Pachirol" :lol:

But I just wasted my time explaining it, since you guys never read it, and the error could have been avoided altogether. >:oP

LOOOL. I really hope they fix that on the final release though. :o

They both look so good. The one thing I wish they could've done better with the new MP scale is have the weapons integrate better in vehicle mode. While it would be pretty easy to make Prowl's gun fold, I can understand why they couldn't do much with Sideswipe's shoulder launcher. It's just too big.

Glad I sold mine last fall!

The big question is how will Hasbro release these and Sideswipe? TRU? HasbroToyShop?

I would prefer a subscription service like MattyCollector has for the MOTU and Voltron lines, that way I am guaranteed.

That said, I have to gues that MP Ratchet and Ironhide are in the works. =P~

I'm pretty sure my last post talking about how takara should release actual pictures of these mps was the same day they released them. :lol: I had a feeling they would that day too.

But about the figures. Awesome, great, wonderful, and nice. I can't wait to see how smokescreen is going to look. I'll probably wait until hasbro releases these though considering they do more show accurate decos and obviously due to the price.

I'm more for the show accuracy than the toy accuracy because for the passed couple of months I've watched a majority of G1 (up to the hilarious 3rd season... i dont know why i just find a lot of the episodes comical) and I didn't grow up with those transformers figures.

The only g1 related figure i actually own is the 2003 reissue of Ultra Magnus (with the long missiles due to safety issues) that i got for Christmas that year. It's one of the few figures that i actually have out on one of my shelves considering Ultra Magnus is one of my favorite characters now.

But yeah... figures are sick. Now let's get on with the rest of the G1 cast. I mean EVERYONE.

Definitely have to get Prowl. If only so he can stand behind MP Grimlock and be all sarky.

I am hoping that lots of people do sell their Classics versions though. I still want that Smokescreen!
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Yes, you are correct. It is also the reason why Artfire's true name is "Autofire" (small "u" unpronounced), we simply misread but it also makes a lot more sense - Autofire.

Going back - I am loving these masterpieces. Although folks are thrilled with less hollow looking legs, I am not sure that is exactly the case. We are only seeing the front and inside of the legs (for both figures). Obviously kibble or a big gap is hidden in the back of the calves.

Too bad about the plastic wheels, which are noticeable in Bluestreak robot mode. Rubber should be the standard.
