    HLJ has just posted a new listing for a Japanese Movie Deluxe Prowl figure.

    http://www.hlj.com/product/TKT76646

    The listing is labeled MD-03 which contradicts a previously reported entry for MD-03 as MD-03 Brawl [deluxe].

    Could be another listing mistake, but could be new product. Click the above link to see the listing.

    I think they can only mean Brawl. I'm also assuming that "Iron Hand" means "Ironhide".

    Yeah I saw that. I know someone who'd love to see that. Also, did 'ya notice that HLJ confirms Voyager Bonecrusher and Leader Class Starscream will have die-cast?

    Agreed. I can see that being a Japanese to English thing - BURAWUHL to PURAWUHL... it's not like Takara to goof with the numbering sequence.

    I'm sticking with those being a listing error, as Type-R suggested, for the moment.

    EDIT: Spelling.

    It's definitely a mistake, they had "PUro-ru" (Prowl) instead of "BUro-ru" (Brawl). Always go with the product codes.

    How the heck did a basic and clear error like this qualify for frontpaging, exactly?

    If it's not an error, maybe Prowl could be a repaint of Barricade with a different head? Too good to be true, I know.

    I'd still love to see in the movie, that Prowl is Barricade in disguise. If they ever had ascene with Barricade rubbing a rubsign to reveal an Autobot symbol, I'd have a total geekgasm.

    It's MD-03, which means Movie Decepticon-03. So, yeah, not true. :)

    I don't have the faintest idea how hlj could screw it up THIS big. Prowl is just the icing on the cake, but many, many products' prices were switched over.

    I understand that some prices were switched over (Blackout and Barricade, for example) but others like Ironhide do not have a counterpart. I want to see how hlj will handle the dozens of customers who want to pay the listed 2200 price for a voyager.

    No, what would you repaint?

    It'd have to be of Jazz.

    It would be cool to have Prowl in the next movie and bring Barricade back into it as well, have a Good Cop/Bad Cop thing going on.

    You know, a retool of Barricade with more white and grey instead of black and possibly a new head would make a great prowl.
    And Frenzy could be orange, and be Wheelie! =D

    I've been buying from them all the time,
    I'm currently expanding my Optimus shelf and found some nice space fillers over there
    The Yen is pretty low right now, and since I'm living in the Middle East, the shipment is as low as 5$ and takes 6-7 days to arrive

    didn't find any other reliable Japanese stores in those prices
    if you guys have any advice about other Japanese stores let me know
