A new Ebay auction has shown up online featuring the soon to be released Transformers Animated Prowl figure. The figure offered is a pre-production sample that a retailer has received early. The figure is sealed, so we have our first look at what to expect as far as packaging for the Animated figure line.

Click here to view and bid on the auction.









Update! The seller has responded and here is what the bio says according to her:

Prowl AUTOBOT Spy.
Prowl has spent his life studying the secrets of the ancient art of circuit-su.
Through its teachings,he has discovered the beauty of pure logic,and the invincibility of reason. All things even combat-are subject to reason.
If one is willing to calmly apply one's mental faculties to any problem,the solution will soon reveal itself. He often finds the chaotic antics of humans and other AUTOBOTS frustrating,but he will stop at nothing in their defense.

His galactic powers & abilities:
Master of circuit su.
Projects holograms for use as camouflage.
Can use any object as a weapon.

The traffic light is a swinging "chain" weapon!

thanks for sharing!


i really don't like this packaging. looks too cheap and kiddy (i know, its a toy, but still) i wish they went with the more "high-tech" look of the movie packages. im also not feeling the "back to the future" logo. but the toy looks good! 8)

probably a trademark or copyright symbol if you are talking about the small symbol on the lower right-hand side.

Not the best looking figure I've ever seen.
Looks very similar to ransack.
Also looks like scout size but package says deluxe, but maybe that's not accurate since this is a Production sample.

Movie Packaging looks way better

Though That is incredible
Why?
Because the figure has Very little vehicle kibble but still transforms inti a beleivable bike mode.

HAHA that's what I was thinking, what the hell is that thing? whats that thing on the top right?... did they ever say accesories would come with the figure? so like bumblebee would get a stop sign, and grimlock would get a palm tree for props.

Looks nice. I really REALLY don't want to buy this line though. I probably will :(

The packaging is nice. It represents what its supposed to, but I think it's not Transformery enough. It could be for any simple animated toy line. Reminds me of baseball for some reason.

So does anyone have the skills to magnify the bio, or will I have to ask the seller for a quote?

Even the packages look like crap for this series. The figure doesnt look to bad. Just needs a new head. Im still not looking forward to this series.

At first i thought I wouldn't be getting anything from the animated line, but the designs are really growing on me (Leno chins and all.) Granted, they will get their own shelf. I guess I should start saving money now.

Oh shit lol, i wasn't looking at all the pictures, I just looked at the back view, and then just noticed its a stop light lol, watch out with bumblebee and a stop sign, grimlock with a palm tree.

He sure don't look deluxe sized...
But then again he isn't standing next to any other figures for size comparisons...

Nice find FB!

I can see I'll be having to put up a new shelf in my collection room. Prowl is looking really sexy. It's amazing how they can such a stylized robot look while having virtually no kibble. And if that stop light really is a weapon, that is by far the coolest weapon ever. Ever.

Looks like a stop light to me too. it also looks like its ment to be some sort of weapon for him. He must beat up decepticons in the cartoons with his leat stop-light-ninja-flail or somehting.

it's a potential must buy, except for the chins. why oh why in primus did they ever stick with those chins, at least they could have put in some detail like metal seams or stuff like that. looks posable enough though.

I can not wait for this show and its figures. I am really excited by this new look, expecially how the toys are still traditional with the new style of animation.

The packaging is "yuck". Hasbro box designers seem to have a phobia for right angles...

The toy is...so-so. I'm really not impressed. Maybe it's because they demoted Prowl into a motorcycle...
Re: First Images of Transformers Animated Prowl and Packaging! (Updated with Bio!) (422768)
Posted by Auto Bot on October 26th, 2007 @ 2:06am CDT
Takara copyrighted the right angles boxes. So Hasbro can't use that kind of box design.

The packaging looks like a cheap 1€ toy. So plain, so few textures. In a toy store I wouldn't look twice at it, because it really looks like a cheap inferior toy with that packaging.
