Siege Deluxe Wave 2 Prowl In-Hand Images - Transformers News - TFW2005
Still looking good. Autotrooper retool!
Not bad. I'll most definitely get him, but he won't be a priority. His thighs are a little too skinny, like he went ahead and skipped leg day or something. Other than that, he has a beautiful head sculpt and I'm a sucker for beautiful police car alt modes.
I hope Toyhax has something in mind for Prowl. Depending on what they could design, I'd consider getting him, but that figure is too plain on its own, at least in vehicle mode.
He is really, really small in vehicle mode. Wow.
Weird, no battle damage. And no shoulder launchers, sadly. Chromia and Prowl look like the first mediocre deluxes from Siege.
Not sure if the credit should go to Hasbro or Takara with the brand unification gong on, but they’ve been pumping out some beautiful sports car alt mode!
Sideswipe did not disappoint in hand, and Prowl looks like he shares similar engineering/parts/etc., so I'm sure Prowl will feel premium and hefty in-hand, and look better in-hand also.
"to punish and enslave.." my wallet you will Siege!
I wonder if those slots near his shoulders will serve any purpose? They are present in both modes. I hope those clear plastic Lowe legs dont present too much of an issue.
These pics do a lot more to endear me to the toy but I still feel that ultimately he’ll be a skip. I already have a Universe Prowl (shitty paint and all) so I just DON’T see the point in another. Not that this toy looks bad or anything, just, I already have my preferred modern Prowl.
Those transluscent wheels remind me of the Velocicon figures from the Cybertron series. Like he\'s going to go pull over Crumplezone and Ransack.
if i liked prowl more as a character , i might have been tempted by this
I thought maybe you could slot the missiles from cog of six gun there.
That’s fair. The universe prowl mold seems like a great toy. But I never got the chance to own it. Also I love the future space car and the weird unique smoothness of this guy. It’s really cool to me.
Autorooper repaint or bust.
Everyone's wanting an Autotrooper redeco, but I want this as a Chug Barricade.
And that’s completely fair, this toy feels like an excellent modern update of Prowl. I do absolutely LOVE that the design is so different from traditional Prowls and that it’s not afraid to try something different. This is just coming from the perspective of a broke ass soon-to-be college graduate who can’t afford several versions of a character they already have a pretty good version of, especially considering raising toy costs.
That being said, if you do get a chance to own the Universe 2.0 Prowl mold for decently cheap, don’t hesitate to hop on the deal. It’s a good clean fun mold. Just be wary of Prowl and his really weird sticky and shitty paint. If you don’t want Prowl, perfect - plenty other variations with probably better paint lmao
Can't wait till they finish painting him. Doesn't look terrible, but he goes in the maybe pile with Megatron and Magnus for me (which would have included Hound had HTS not had that crazy price), which is odd as Prowl is one of my favorites.
For me looks like I'll be skipping Prowl, Chromia and Starscream, I MAY get prowl if I see him on clearance, POTP SS holds me over and I've never cared for Chromia. Wave 2 is all about Soundwave, cassettes, Ironhide and Rescue Patrol
I wonder if a large part of the strategy with this line is to eventually retool these guys into their earth modes? They've left it really easy for themselves. They could have made really out-there, interesting, super sci-fi alt modes but instead they've played it very safe. That's fine too, but I reckon there's a future reason for it.
Which is on the runway for w3 or 4.
