    I'm sure Hasbro had already confirmed Prowl since peeps have frequently cited him as being exempt from the animated/Universe not having the same charaacter at once rule.

    EPIC WIN

    Can't wait to see what kind of cop car he is, or if he even remains a fastback coupe. Bring on Bluestreak and Smokescreen!

    Well if that's true, it kind of debunks the "rule" that they can't/won't release characters with the same name in Classics 2.0 that also appear in Animated. That gives me some hope that we'll eventually get Blitzwing for Classics... maybe sometime in 2009 after the initial waves of Animated are done.

    Yes!

    My favorite G1 Autobot gets the Classics treatment.

    Classics Prowl & Sunstreeker? Awesome. The more classics the better, I say.

    Now if Hasbro releases repaints with slight mods to Prowl as Bluestreak, Silverstreak & Smokescreen, they'll have a winner.

    Watch Prowl be a plastic version of the unreleased WW titanium, lol...

    Makes sense though, most potential for re-paints (with slight alterations):
    Sunstreaker - Sideswipe & Red Alert
    Prowl - Bluestreak & Smokescreen

    Maybe an Ironhide/Ratchet/Skids mold will be next?

    I wish I could say that but my favorites are Wheeljack,Trailbreaker & Inferno. I'm still hoping they'll show up.

    Prowl is a shock, we already knew that Sunstreaker, Sideswipe and Octane are on the way but Hasbro said there would be no names in universe that are in animated. nice suprise, now show us the pictures and the remolds!

    Again - while Prowl is an exception, and Ratchet was mentioned at Botcon at least once as being exempt from the rule in future Universe waves (as an eventual repaint of a Classics-style Ironhide), Hasbro specifically said they wouldn't be doing two Blitzwings, just the one for Animated.

    I just want to see Classics Jazz. That would rock. Actually, getting the entire cast of G1 Seasons 1-Movie as Classics would be awesome.

    That's the best Classics-related news ever.

    Next to Octane being in it that is, you just don't get more Octane toys everyday.

    In my head right now ... "please don't look like a movie toy. please don't look like a movie toy. please don't look like a movie toy. please don't look like a movie toy. please don't look like a movie toy. please don't look like a movie toy. please don't look like a movie toy."

    I don't think that citation was on the basis of any real info. Rather, the Animated version is so NOT the same (or even in any way similar) to G1 Prowl that he wasn't really considered to be much of a violation to that rule in the first place.

    If they think that's gonna make up for canceling War Within Prowl, they're wrong.

    I'm not sure why everyone is so surprised about Prowl. They mentioned we'd get him as part of Classics 2.0 at the convention earlier this year. Sure, the news is official now.


    Hasbro stated at Botcon this year that the Prowl in Animated was so different from the proposed Classics Prowl that it wouldn't affect the rule. The only similarity between the two would be the name.

    My thoughts exactly. I want to see everyone, but Jazz is a priority.
