    I just opened mine up the other day and man oh man what a treat. Not only did I manage to get him at the lower Wal-mart price but this figure would have been worth the 12.99 I could have spent. Easily my favorite new figure,(for now) Articulation is good except for a plastic burr on the back of his right knee (easily removed) and I had a little bit of a hard time attaching the armour, initially, but now that its on there it has not moved at all. All he needs is some detailing decals and a lil touch up on the paint. Love this figure though absolutely love him.

    I personally prefer regular Prowl, myself. Less light blue plastic, nicer bike mode, bigger head, better paint apps.

    Oh yeah, "Gold plastic degradation" I can see where there'd be confusion.

    I almost bought him but I still refuse to pay 13 bucks for a new deluxe knowing I could get it online cheaper

    I was worried that this thread was about GPS as well, having just bought the figure the other day and have yet to open it.

    I love Samurai Prowl. The armor looks like it will drop off when you try to place the pegs in his wings, but once everything is in place it's quite sturdy. I'm also a big fan of the light blue translucent plastic. Don't even care there's color inaccuracies (read: lack of paint)..he's awesome.

    I was gonna pass on this guy, but now that, in the show, the armor seems to be permanent I'm gonna pick him up.
