We'd like to give a big thanks to Seibertron user and YouTuber coolboz2008, who has now provided us with our very first video review of the long-awaited Masterpiece figure, MP-17 Prowl! Check out his review below.

Yep those shoulders need some colour like the original toy. Also the shoulder cannons appear half hearted without the addonsl. These masterpieces are tempting but I'm very happy with the classics renditions, even the weapon storage in alt mode is more successful. I am still looking forward to seeing wheel jack and bb...
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

If you are going to do a video review of a toy, take it out of the box and play around with it for a while. Doing a Transformers review cold makes for a slightly boring and, as we saw here, a very choppy video.

On brighter news, Prowl looks amazing.

I appreciate the review but Prowl's transformation looked painful. I bit my nails numerous times during the review thinking- "ohhh it's about to snap!" Luckily it didn't.

Should we start a pool on when the KO version will be released?
