I got a BS response that they can't tell me anything concerning MP Prowl because that's sensitive information and if they gave me an answer it could leak out and their competition could use that information to screw them over.
Going to need to ask my uncle for help here then.


Wow, that's some first class BS. I can just imagine the line of competitors lining up to screw them over and how would anything we don't already know ( it's been cancelled ) effect them...unless they ARE planning to release it but realised that it was priced too high and are looking to re list it under a different price point.


Nah, we just don't like people inquiring about business plans and products, be they real or not, at all, period. >:oP

How is it damaging to a business admitting to carrying the latest item in its own range of exclusives? And if the "inquire about our products" section of your customer service portal results in "yeah sorry, we don't like talking about our products", then why the hell do you even employ people for that section?

Man, that sucks. I'm sure our British brethren would've loved Prowl.

Though I did lul at the thumbnail. Am I a bad individual for doing so?

Hasbro Transformers Masterpiece Prowl Confirmed

Postby Va'al » Fri Feb 16, 2018 12:51 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Although just yesterday a MP-17+ Prowl from Takara Tomy was revealed in the pages of Dengeki Hobby, featuring a more cartoon accurate color scheme, it looks like this may not be exclusive to Japan and the Takara Tomy Mall after all. Our friend Darryl from Giant Robot Comics has notified us via Twitter of a possible Hasbro release of MP-17+, by way of a listing from Diamond Comic Distributors. Although Hasbro has released Masterpiece Prowl in the past, the listing below shows an estimated shipping date of 9/26/2018 as well as an image showing the more cartoon accurate MP-17+ version.

We've mirrored Darryl's screen capture of this listing below, also showing the $79.99 price point that the recent MPM-3 Bumblebee shared.

This is certainly good news for collectors and possibly evidence of more alignment in the global Masterpiece releases as has been seen in the Masterpiece Movie lineup, as we also now have confirmation, as we were writing this up, of the figure to appear thanks to site sponsor BigBadToyStore.. Let us know what you think of this in our Energon Pub Forums by replying to this post, and be sure to check out Giant Robot Comics (who we thank again for the tip!) if you're in Nova Scotia.

Prowl, smokescreen, red alert, bluestreak, silverstreak, and blue bluestreak should be enough right?? That's great for other people who want the repaint, but I'm more than happy with my 1st prowl and I'm just impatient for the official releases of our classic and well remembered autobot car brethren. Glad the beast wars fans are getting some love too

I'm pretty sure simple repaints are not going to take budget from the new mold department, their being made alongside other stuff not replacing them.

Plus I doubt we are going to see an MP Jazz and or Cliffjumper for that matter for a long time due to Porsche.

This is one of the few anime edition re colors I may actually pick up. I have the original MP17, but I broke a piece when I first transformed him into robot mode. I may also pick up the 14+ Red Alert since I don't have the original, but other than that, I will stick with the primary releases of Smokescreen, Bluestreak, Soundwave, Wheeljack, or any other characters they could take in this direction in the future.

I heard Porsche is a lot more strict then VW is when it comes to these things.

What the hell would an MP Cliffjumper look like anyways? He's the one guy who doesn't fit with the whole "realistic" thing since he is a chibi version of a regular car.

That's how I think we'll see Cliffjumper. The MP will look just different enough that Takara won't need to get permission. With the possible US release of Prowl getting it went from nope to maybe.

Or for a better example just turn to Bumblebee. Problem is with Both CJ and Jazz being Porsches it would be strange having both a normal Porsche and a tiny Porsche in the same line. Bee worked fine since there are no big Beetles so he's fine as a one off.
