Interesting. He has Prowl's lightbar but Bluestreak's retooled hands.

Also, I now have "Safety Dance" stuck in my head...

What is a Safety Car, anyway?

The safety car would like to remind you to fasten your seatbelts, stop at red lights, eat an apple every day and brush twice, you are also the only one who can prevent forest fires and to have safe sex.

Knowing is half the race.

Before you bag 'er, sheath your dagger.

And knowing is half the battle.

A Safety Car is a Pace Car. In cases of accidents and debris, it becomes used to have the other cars start at a set speed before it is safe to continue the race. 8)

In all cases, I wonder if the Safety Car in GT-500 also contains medical supplies. I say that because there was a horrendous case that resulted in them adding medical and other features needed in one of their cars. I'll look it up if you like.

As for the item... You know my policies on owning a Convoy/Prime. So this is not one loss for me. ;)

Damn, now it looks so good.

So he's a hybrid tooling of the two. Cool. 8)

Of all the smartasses that browse these forums, you would be the one to twist a common saying from one franchise and use them for your dark designs.

... which leads me to believe that the retooling done to the hands is permanent.

Possible. But you do know that it is a ploy to get you GT-R Saber, right? ;)

As for me, the joke is on them when it comes to this ploy - I preordered mine long ago. But don't tell them that yet. :p

I like that they can hold weapons. :grin:

Anyway. This isn't the first Prowl with the new hands.
The previous Takara Prowl..the shiny one. He has the retool too.


But Safety Prime looks nice. I like the safety neon and deco.
He's loud, but in a safe kinda way.

Hoping to pick one of these up at Botcon for next to nothing, but will probably not even see one.

Pfft, try harder. :P Hydra's bound to have them. If not him ,one of the other Japanese resellers are likely to.

Hehe, that's exactly what I'm counting on, which is why I figure it'll crash and burn :lol:

Thanks. I partially blame Jelze for giving me the idea of just caving in. But after the fumble over what should be my 13th piece (BTW, that is "Masterpiece" Alert), adding him made sense. And his color scheme makes sense as it matches his Saber form more (with his battle helmet on). :) The only question for me now is if he and Maximus are "Cybertron" or "Autobot". Collection reasons, is all. :)

More importantly, welcome to the boards. :)

I like how they have GT-R Saber and GT-R Maximus side-by-side in the photo, El Duque. It is almost like they are telling me that I made a good call preordering them both for my collection. :)

Shame that unless I can find a means to obtaining more Henkei!/Gentei! pieces that I want, or TOMY reissue Ultra Magnus and the Headmasters, these will be the last two pieces I seriously buy for my permanent collection. But at the same time, it makes me glad because I am now officially hooked on Super GT racing. :D Oh, and I am also intrigued by his profile.

So guys... If my plans go through and I am in Japan by 2014, and they make this an annual tradition, I'll try to find an agency that "rents" out kids and get a few pieces for you to buy (semi-cheap) in the process. ;)
