TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Prowl from Hasbro®
Prowl is a clear thinker who is able to see beyond the chaos of battle and discover the rational route to victory. His logic center is the most sophisticated in the Autobot army, capable of analyzing complex combat situations and making strategic decisions almost instantaneously. Unexpected events have been known to briefly scramble his circuits, but there isn't much this Autobot doesn't see coming. As much as his fellow Autobots would like to see Prowl loosen up and crack a joke once in a while, they recognize that what makes him so brilliant on the battlefield is what makes him so disciplined off it. Conventioneers can take home this sneak peak item for $70.

TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Sunstorm from Hasbro®

Autobots beware, because this ultimate Decepticon flier is on the hunt for someone to fight. He converts from robot mode to fighter jet mode, and in either mode he's armed for major combat. His canopy and nose cone open in jet mode, and his hidden missile pods deploy when he gets an Autobot in his sights. And, don’t forget to set him on his stand when the fight is over for the day. Fans can get this high-flying Decepticon with incredible battle features for $80.

Why do all the recent Raphael toys come with him holding his sai's like that? He usually holds them by the handle. Also, if you are there, pick up Prowl. After market prices are already high.

There is no way Prowl's (initial) retail price should be more than MP Thundercracker's or Acid Storm's. Unless he comes with the Amazon exclusive launchers or some other accessory, I foresee clearance.

$70 for the North American release of MP Prowl? Please tell me that's a misprint. If not, collectors might as well start ordering the Takara versions:
- almost same price, maybe even cheaper through some sites
- get to experience the figure months to a year before NA release, and
- you can order at your convenience online instead of stalking stores on shipment day

But I certainly can't complain about the price of Sunstorm.

Too bad about Prowl's price. Looks like TRU is making the same mistake with these MPs that they made with the Commemorative reissues. Oh well, I'll buy it anyway...

those turtles look nothing like the movie, i would have never guessed they were meant to be that version had the article not mentioned it. the heads totally look like a cartoon. the movie figures they made back in the day looked closer and they looked bad themselves.

i guess the bodies and "gear" sorta looks the same but in this age of great sculpts, i'm surprised they couldnt make them look way more screen acurate.

Yeah the heads on the Turtles are ridiculous looking. I have the 4 classics. Those are fantastic. But these 4 wont be joining them.

I agree with the horrible turtle head sculpts, but trust me they're not as bad as the old "movie star" ones with freckles haha.

When I first saw the sizes of Prowl and Sideswipe in person I couldn't believe they want that price for such tiny mp figures. And now I've waited and waited for this TRU version to be cheaper and it's basically the same price. Looks like I'll wait longer and buy a takara opened box prowl on ebay. Dammit TRU

Raph may or may not "usually" hold them by the handle, but the pose is still pretty iconic.
Here is an image from issue #1 where he is holding the Sai's like that:

$70 for a Deluxe-sized figure? No thanks. And, yeah, those Turtles are... disappointing. Not horrible, mind you, but not that great either.

Bleh... I want to support the MP line... I do... but, come on man... charging the SAME PRICE as the import price from Japan? Are you insane? I would have expected $45, and would probably pay $50... but why on Earth would I pay $70, when I can just go on ebay or some random online toystore and get one now, without having to worry about hunting it down in TRU??

Plus, let's face it... there are some high quality KOs out there. If this is the TRU plan, I see no reason to wait on Bluestreak or Smokescreen... might as well just get the knock offs. They lost the shot at my money.

I got mine for even cheaper last September when it first came out. ¥4,640 (which is approximately $47 USD). It shipped with 3 other figures via EMS for about $24. So I basically paid $53 for my Masterpiece Prowl.

I think paid about $15 shipped for each of the missile launchers so $83 was my total for a Takara Masterpiece Prowl with 2 missile launchers.

I agree, I know I have been doing this since MP-08 Grimlock (with the exception of MP-10). But I can say that I, and many others outside of Japan, have (or had) the expectation of buying locally and at cheaper prices.

I also realize that there are SEVERAL MP releases that aren't going to be wide releases, like the Black Rodimus or Tigertrack releases. So, yeah I'll keep buying Takara and only buy the Hasbro versions if there are differences.

I've been ordering from AmiAmi or HLJ for awhile now, but sometimes I either miss out on the preorder time (they do go quickly) or for pieces I think will be larger I'll go domestic because the shipping might outweight the savings.

Honestly, I was thinking Hasbor Prowl would go about $50. Considering we've been able to purchase Hot Rod, Grimlock, and various seekers for $70 - 80 a piece. I find this pricing strange and can only hope that this is just for SDCC. I say "hope" not for myself but for other fans who don't have this figure yet. What's done is done, and I've had MP Prowl on my shelf like several of you for some time now. I have at least one friend who I've recently gotten into Masterpiece. I may have to start doubling up my foreign orders so we can both achieve savings.

It's possible that these prices are only for SDCC and that Hasbro is trying to get more money from the people who aren't necessarily TF fans and who might not realize that these are excessively overpriced and aren't SDCC exclusives.
