    Hello everyone,

    I don't remember seeing this before. I did a search, but could not find anything on it.

    Up on Actoys is a thread with a photo of Samurai Prowl's box back which includes his bio.

    Here is the link:
    ±äÐνð¸Õ 08¶¯»*°æ ¼ÓÇ¿¼¶ samurai prowl ѲÓÎÏÀÈÌÕß×° ²âÆÀ 18P ACTOYSÄ£ÍæÍø - ÖÐÎÄÊÀ½ç×î´óµÄ¶¯ÂþÖܱßÄ£ÐÍÍæ¾ßÍø »ã¾Û±äÐνð¸ÕÍæ¾ß,ÆäËûÖ÷Á÷Ä£ÐÍ,¶¯ÂþÍæ¾ß - powered by phpwind.net

    "The road to enlightenment is paved with deactivated enemies."

    "With Lockdown returning again and again to plague the Autobots, Prowl is determined to take him down, once and for all. To combat the Decepticon bounty hunter, he upgrades his body to its ultimate limit, adding weapons and armor until nothing Lockdown can do will stop him.

    Huh... sounds like he's supposed to be paired with Blazing Lockdown.

    Prowl's really one of the few Animated figures i don't find to be either an embarrassment or total disgrace to the brand, and he looks practically buyable in his new armored form ~ nice that the samurai helmet mostly covers up the hideous Animated-style face!

    That's extremely similar to G1 Bruticus' motto ("The road to conquest is paved with Autobot wrecks.")

    Huh... that's the second bio that's been really off for Animated. Which, I guess when you consider the horrible non-cannon bios that the whole of Energon and Cybertron had... that's really not so bad that only Samurai Prowl and Sentinel Prime's bios have been off.

    Still, couldn't care less what his bio says. I've got the DVD set and I've got the episodes so I know what really happens. :D

    maybe thats Prowl's mindset when he uses the upgrades-didnt he go a little mod-crazy? maybe its supposed to reflect that somehow.

    though i also thought Sentinel's was fairly accurate...

    Yeah, he went mod crazy, but it was actually due to him working with Lockdown. They were both going after SS and they called a temporary truce and Lockdown gave Prowl a bunch of extra mods and... well, Prowl let it get to his head. So... really not sure how the bio reflects that.

    It's just a bio that may inspire kids to come up with cool ideas to play, so they had to make it sound a bit cooler than what actually happened. Also, people that haven't seen A Fistful Of Energon should get an idea of what to expect of the toy, so of course the facts aren't straight.

    It's always easy to assume only the 'basic' bios are correct. Repaints and upgraded characters have non-canon bios (like G1 Movie Jazz..Movie Desert Brawl..Animated Blazing Lockdown..etc. etc. etc.)
