    I don't have a prowl figure, and I'm looking for the definitive figure to get. Any suggestions.

    Yeah.

    I like Animated Prowl but he is definitely the most un-Prowlish one and to be honest I'm not really a Prowl fan.

    The classics one seems to be the better representation of the character. Maybe titanium or energon if you want to mix it up.

    Universe Prowl certainly looks like Prowl, but has issues, like a weird neck, sloped shoulders, sticky paint on some smaples and just odd proportions.

    RID prowl, while not super-Prowly, is an excellent figure.

    Henkei Prowl, like the Universe 2 version without tacky paint problems.

    The Universe one is only an ok figure (mostly due to the paint, it's far from a bad mold) but damn if he doesn't look like Prowl.

    The Universe 2.0 one would be great if not for the paint issues. I'm not fond of the chrome used on the Henkei version either though. I'd just get the original and be done with it :D

    Get the Henkei version, accept no substitutes. He may be pricey, but definitely worth it.

    Get the Universe 2.0 version, and then get the Reprolabels to make up for the really plain paint apps/color scheme. The Henkei version would be okay too, but it's probably significantly more expensive, and the only differences (or at least the only noticeable ones) are that the Henkei one has a different lightbar (but no better or worse than the Universe 2.0 one) and chrome on his missiles, his gun (which both looks okay), and his spoiler (which looks really weird).

    I have the Universe 2.0 and Henkei versions, both MISB. Henkei definitely looks like the superior of the two in terms of fit and finish and paint, though I'm not a fan of the chrome (it's nice and all but most of my collection is Classics and not Henkei so there's some style clashing there; I have the same problem with the two versions of Inferno I have). I've been meaning to sell off one or the other (since I don't need both), but not sure which to keep (goes for both Prowl and Inferno).

    In either case, I would definitely recommend getting the Reprolabels set; they always make a good figure even better.

    @ Ricky stream: hey, hey, hold on a second: those pictures are all of modified figures. It's fine that you post them, but you should tell him.
    - Universe prowl is holding 2 weapons that are not his
    - Henkei has some stickers that must be bought apart. From reprolabels, I suppose
    - Binaltech besides the head mod you mention, has the 2 missile launchers, that also don't come with the original toy

    @captclueless: try TFU for pictures of Prowl figures. Its related names / repaints feature will help you finding the one you like better :)

    the alternators alert with reprolabels and arming kit is the best of them, but the universe one is the best for that scale.

    ... Action Master's Prowl?

    The head's nice, though.
