I cant help but notice that their fists seem to be roughly as large as their heads, if not bigger.

Does it really matter? Plenty of TF toys have hands bigger than their heads.

No, it doesn't matter at all. It just jumped out at me.

The more I see of Prowl the more I love him. Depending on the hasbro release price point this might be a christmas present for a friend of mine, fellow tf fan who is a cop :grin:

I love how Streak's cannons are deployed while Prowl's are left tucked away.

Cartoon-accuracy, FTW. ;)^

Can we get a look of Smokescreen now please?

AGREED! I've seen enough of this pair to convince me to buy them three times over. Now I want to see their mold mate.

And that said, I'd buy a Barricade decepticon repaint and a Blue bluestreak as well. Dead serious, Takara. Dead serious.

MP-19 Smokescreen won't be coming until after these two come.

These area looking awesome. They look like test shots now, you can tell the fists and a few other parts are bare plastic rather than painted like the prototypes we saw earlier. Also note 'Patrol'. ;)

One thing I noticed though, the middle of Bluestreak's head crest is red. Wasn't like that in the cartoon or in previous pics... :BANG_HEAD: I hope they fix that before it's released.

I really hope they change their mind and include both toy accurate launchers, the cartoon launchers just look lazy and ridiculous.
Re: New Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-17 Prowl and MP-18 Bluestreak Images (1488046)

Yeah, I'd love it if you could purchase launchers somehow. I'd prefer to have them in toy colors for both, even if I have to pay extra.

ALSO, I did find some odd pics of Bluestreak with a BIT of red between the crest, but MOST by far had gray in between. I'd MUCH much much much much prefer that. Solid red crest is way too Ratchet for my tastes.

The image in the thumbnail made them look like they had gimpy legs. :HEADHURTS:

They look really great. Hopefully we will get a stateside release of either one and Sideswipe.

of EITHER one... Hopefully we get the entire LINE over here. Picking and choosing with these is unacceptable, given what a perfect version of the original G1 lineup we're seeing out of them. I've had ZERO complaints from these cars, and very few about Soundwave, the jets, and prime.

Okay. My ONE huge complaint with the USA version of Prime is that I never saw one. Needz better distributions, plz.

That's because they're always produced in low numbers in the US and sold as store exclusives. Hasbro still doesn't believe there's a viable market for these 'adult collectibles' at mass retail.

Between that and how they invariably screw up the colors, I'm sticking with Takara regardless of cost.

How big do the Masterpiece figures (Specifically, the car-formers and the jet-formers) look next to, say, a standard Deluxe? As someone with very little shelf-space who doesn't segregate his figures by continuity (I'm still 8 years old at heart, despite being twice that) it would kinda be cool if they were well scaled with "regular" Transformers.

I understand this, but being through Toys R Us, a guy should be able to eventually find one... and/or get it on Ebay without the market drying up. I heard of stores getting a couple, then never again. Seeing them at $250-300 on eBay, they have to think there's a LITTLE bit more market than what they released. That's pitiful. Sheesh, put some up online or something.
