    sweet repaint of prowl, this would have been great to get in the new universe 3.0/classics.
    black and red look great, would also make a great barricade.

    It's a straight translation of G2 Streetwise's color scheme... yet he looks a bit bland. Some symbol on his hood/chest would maybe fix that.

    So looks like the 2 good guys in the boxset don't get any remolds while probably(?) all three baddies will have new heads.

    I wonder if that's a number on the roof of the car?

    I like it. It's not terribly exciting for whatever reason, but it looks nice. I love the deco on the front windshield. Good job on the door symbols too!

    I love that they were able to mold the siren in 2 different colors.

    95-4 like the original G2 version (95 for the year, 4 for the 4th component of Defensor).

    I like it!

    Sure he's not very bright but they made it work. I love how they actually painted the light bar half blue and half red to mimic the way G2 Streetwise's lightbar is and the little red & blue touches on his waist. The red feet are a nice touch too as Streetwise's lights became his feet (but one red foot and one blue foot would look weird). The clear blue windows like Henkei Streak are a real nice touch too.

    I really like the emblem on the side and the 95-4 on the top of the car.

    I don't see this on their front page, so I think it wasn't supposed to be revealed just yet... icon-op.gif

    Like I had guessed he looks a lot like Streak with more black.

    No. They shouldn't start adding details in vehicle mode that the toy they're homaging doesn't have. But its understandable that the robot mode gets some additional color because that won't match up perfectly to the original toy.

    As expected he keeps Prowl's head. I'm okay with that. Rapido if he is included as a bagged toy would work well with Prowl's head (its not exactly like his original head but its close).

    So this means that Sky-Byte and Clench get new heads, right? Those two are most deserving of them if its the molds we think they are.

    Aww. I was hoping for a new head with no nose and big, kissable robo-lips...

    As it stands, it looks like a black Prowl... or Sky(jack)fall playing dress-up. Still, since the Fairlady Z Bots are slowly on their way to being the rivals to the Seekers, it's just "ok".

    But hey! More chance that Skybyte and Clench will get new heads and maybe one of the attendee sets will have a new noggin,too.

    Can we assume Rapido is going to get that rumored figure now, since the lack of a new head on the Prowl mold means he can easily be repainted red with a silver head. Rapido does have a vaguely Prowl-shaped head with the only difference between the two being the nose/mouth guard.

    Love the windshield.

    I think I'm one of the few people that prefer the Prowl mold over the Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold.

    not bad.....but nothing about it screams G2 to me. There are so many other G2 cars they could have done, which I find a little confusing. Oh well, I'll take it.
