Just yesterday we learnt of a new Generations style Prowl and Jetfire figure released for the Asian market as part of the Cyber Battalion line. New images of these toys out of their boxes have popped up on INCHIKIBANCYO's Twitter. We can also see a box for the Optimus Prime of the same line which is being rereleased in a slightly different deco. One fun thing to note is that Prowl appears to have knees making that a first for this line. For those out there wondering, these are very similar to upscaled cyberverse toys with limited articulation and are not made to be distributed widely in the US (or other countries other than BRICS). This makes them ridiculously hard to find on the secondary market. If anyone is interested in these, keep your eyes peeled on Asian vendors like Robot Kingdom or stateside importers. But fair warning, there will either be a high mark up for import or a high shipping fee and if it's the same as the last time they were offered, once they are gone from those sites they are impossible to find afterwards. Keep an eye on these boards because we will let you know when we find out how we can get a hold of them.

FYI, it's "BRICS" countries, not "BRIC" countries.


We may at least see Smokescreen and Bluestreak from that Prowl,but that Jetfire looks more like a Seeker.

If we see Bluestreak or Smokescreen before Thundercracker and Skywarp I'll be surprised. Don't forget we never got a legends Smokescreen from that mold

Nah, these don't work for me at that size. Fine if they were much smaller like Legends or Scouts. At least they went with Jetfire's cooler battle mask rather than face.

Its the wrong size for RID though, these are voyager sized toys, which the RID line doesnt have.

The shotgun that comes with the overscale KO of Streetwise would be idea - either the decent one which isn't out yet or the crummy one with a gold shotgun that B&M sell.

Voyager-sized, essentially.

They are VERY simple, though; that's why they're priced so low for something of that size. Most of them don't have knees and that seems to be the case for Jetfire here too.

I don't think it's something that dooms the figures - the whole point is to give something big and simple to kids for a cheaper price than what something that size would normally be - but it's definitely something to keep in mind while buying them.

so Prowl is completely articulated but Jetfire is missing the knees?

It is oddly nice, now that I look at it. Almost seems like a copy of the MP head, in fact. Alt-mode is nice, but the way the hood-chest looks doesn't look right on him for some reason. Needs door-wings too, can't picture Prowl without them.
Jetfire's head is disappointingly unpainted, and the antennae seem too short. The lack of knees really knock him down a peg, too. I like how the back of the jet is painted like his boosters, but I still wish he actually had said boosters. And for some reason, I really want his double-guns for my Legends Jetfire.

I thought it looked more like the combiner wars one, which is also phenomenal.

Voyager, but these aint cheap. Unless you live in Taiwan or other countries where they were spotted, these will cost anyone about 35$ plus shipping (rough estimate), which is quite pricey for a voyager.

Well it depends what you mean by completely articulated. I dont know if his head can move and his arms are one big solid piece, and I dont know about the waist. So lets just say that he has knees and jetfire doesnt.

I was wishing for an up-sized version of the G1 blaster that legends Smokescreen came with.

What figure are you looking at?
Image
He quite clearly has elbows and his shoulders have both forward/backward rotation and outward movement, his neck can turn, and even his feet can be posed for jumping or kneeling. Sure, he lacks wrist and bicep swivels and probably wast movement, but that's still a considerable amount of articulation for a figure like this.

BTW, the article missed the image of Prime's box from the same source. I'd say this time they're going movie-style with the extra gray and flames on the truck. Image

If he had knees and a sword he'd be a really nice Optimus.
