    Hi everyone,

    I found some comparison photos of Samurai Prowl with regular Prowl, that I don't think have been seen before. The photos are all signed by TF08.net. I searched, but I couldn't find them on that site. Here is the link to the page, it will come up translated by Google: Translated version of http://actoys.net/bbs/read.php?tid-320879.html

    If these photos have been shown before, please accept my apologies.

    I wonder why they flipped around his arm arrows? Where they the wrong direction the first time around? And why did they not paint his tire spokes, but then did more detailed painting on the tire cover area? They missed the gas tank cover too. Not sure about the blue used for the window/lights. That doesn't make much sense either. I guess they want it to be different enough that people will notice instead of maybe getting attacked for having not released the sidecar with the first figure.

    Huh, interesting. I think I like the first one better.

    Interesting that instead of painting the whole hubcap/shuriken this time around, they just paint the y-shaped detail on it.

    He surprisingly looks much more accurate, design wise.

    from the other shots it still looks like he will be no easier to stand up.

    He looks like a pin-head now. Slight mold changes and paint changes. Other than the smaller looking head, it's not bad.

    I hope his joints are tighter than original. If so, I want one.

    Looks like no ones going to regret buying the first one as well as the armoured one.

    It's a shame that the standard robot head doesn't look as good this time round; I know they had to make the crest smaller to accomodate the helmet, but on its own it doesn't look quite as good.

    Still, it's nice to see that they've clearly gone to some lengths to retool the figure, and on the whole it does look better. I just hope the joints are a bit tighter on him this time...

    As nice as this retool is I think I'll just stick to my original Prowl.

    His joints better be really sturdy to carry all that weight.

    I really don't mind the differences in the alt mode details really, I held out on the first release simply because I liked the sidecar armor better than that pointless streetlight. I got a jar of Testor's silver enamel on my workbench if I really need that gas cap painted.

    I think the Samurai Prowl is a bit better than the original Prowl.

    I'm gonna have to take a paint brush and some antique gold and light brown acrylic paint to it. And a red sharpie to the light bar. Other than that, it looks awesome. The chevrons on his arms being the opposite direction as the original's kinda bugs me though. Luckily they get covered up in Samurai mode.

    There seemed to be changes than I thought. Interesting.
