After being found in the Toys 'R' Us computer system, site Sponsor TFSource has posted on their Facebook page, images of the upcoming Hasbro version of Masterpiece Prowl. Numbered MP-04, he looks nearly identical to his Japanese counterpart but sporting the new and improved looking Masterpiece boxes that Hasbro has used since Acid Storm.

Doesn't look much different (if at all) from the Takara version. A little paint missing on the bumper in car mode, but present in robot mode.

Only two real questions....is the box the same size as MP Soundwave and Acid Storm? Prowl isn't nearly as big as the Seeker mold, and doesn't come with anough accessories to justify the larger size box that Soundwave came in.

Also, pricing? If it's around $60 or so, I'll be glad I got my Takara release. A year earlier, easier to find (if past MP releases of popular characters are any indication), and not that much more money.

If I've learned one thing from my life as a Transfan, it's patience. Hadn't saved up for Takara's, passed on those leftover parts KOs (I bought Red Alert's, and got what I paid for), and now THIS!

And if he's on TRU shelves the same time as the MP Grimlock rerelease, it'll be like watching their arguments from the end of the Marvel U.S. run on the store shelves.
(Hopefully Underbase-ish Platinum Starscream will finally be gone by then, for continuity's sake)

More popular than Acid Storm, but up there with Optimus and Soundwave? Nah, he won't be that hard to find.

And since Acid Storm's box was one size smaller than Soundwave's, my guess is Prowl's will be about one inch less in width and height.

Well as far as I've always seen, he's more popular than Hot ROd/Rodimus Prime, and I NEVER saw him on shelves...got him via eBay (though thankfully, for not much more than retail). Gotta wonder, too, with his more prominent role in the current comics, if that'll spark a bit more interest than there would have been.

That makes sense. I don't know what else they COULD include to make the box as big as even Acid Storm's, other than empty space.

*sigh* Once again I gave into the paranoia and bought the Japanese one. I knew deep down this would be released in the US, I just knew it. Does anyone think they'll include the chrome launchers?

I too bought the Takara one but since I only paid about $60 shipped (maybe a little less), which is what it is looking like this one will cost, no big deal.

I paid a little over $90 for the Asian market one. Even $60 I feel is a bit much for what we're getting.

Having the Takara one there's no reason to get a Hasbro one, especially for Prowl. But I do like the box.

i want one but im going to pass, not making the mistake of paying top dollar and getting a low quality piece of crap again. Only way ill pick this up is if i can get it for around $40, anything above that is a complete ripoff.

Due the cost of collecting these I've been reluctant to start getting serious with Masterpiece figures but of course now I want them all now that they seem intent on making all the main characters. What sucks is I saw my Grimlock, Skywarp, and Optimus get me offers double or sometimes triple what I paid so I sold them all thinking they would never make a full set of Masterpiece figures. Who knows how much of a bitch karma will be to me while trying to buy those back again. #-o

I think I was $75 or thereabouts for the Japanese one online. I suspected that out of any of the new licensed car ones, Prowl would be the most likely to get a US release, but it wasn't set in stone.

The lack of Sideswipe or any news about anything from Hasbro, and my love of Prowl (both the character and the MP mold) combined to plenty of reason for buying it when I knew I could. I'm not worried. This new box is fairly nice looking, but the black T/T one fits with the rest of mine anyway, and whilst I suppose this might turn up on shelves in TRU's here, I'm not counting on Hasbro UK.

Nice one for folks who missed out or passed for whatever reason before though. He's a great toy.

maybe to you.. and if that's the case.. then masterpiece figures shouldn't interest you at all anyways.
