    I'm aware that the Samurai Prowl's transformation is nearly identical to the first Animated Prowl's transformation. Having said that though I'm having trouble figuring out how to arrange his swiveling hip joints so he comes together in bike mode. Any advice or pics of how the hips should be placed in the front and rear of the bike would be very very very much appreciated.

    It is for the most part, but his hips have two points of articulation as opposed to the original. So how are they suppose to be arranged when in bike mode?

    Don't forget the waist moves on a ball joint. If you have the original Prowl, compare them and you'll get it. It happened to me, but once you get it it's simple.

    Damn, I thought the transformation for Samurai Prowl was quite hard.

    His right leg forms his front wheel. That's been standard on both prowls. I hope that helps.

    The leg with the kickstand is the back wheel. And once you have the leg in place, the motorcycle ferrings should kind of snap into the ankle of the leg.

    all you REALLY have to do is not turn the new joints.

    I had no idea they fixed the Hip joint for Samurai prowl. I wasn't going to pick it up, but I may do so since that was one of my major gripes about the original release...
